Wonderful! Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful home the last week in Oct. and it was more than we expected. The pictures are great, but really don't do it justice. It snowed the 2nd morning we were there. Didn't eat in Marshall, but heard the Bistro was very good. The drive to Ashville is about 25 minutes. We took the train trip out of Bryson, but if I had it to do again, I probably wouldn't as the views from the deck at the house are prettier than any we saw on that trip. Joan has put much thought in the comfort of her guest.

Not motorcycle friendly - but a fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

This house had it all, a view, great amenities, excellent hosts, but if you are traveling via motorcycle that isn't meant for off-road, you're up for a challenge. The extensive, chunk-gravel drive off the main road, combined with two rutted and steep pitched hills, makes it extremely stressful for even the most seasoned Harley rider. Perhaps you park the bikes in-town and hitch a car ride with buddies to the house, but wanted to leave this honest review. The drive is a challenge for cars, even more so for bikes. But man. What a house! And if you're traveling into Asheville, you can get Ubers (don't drink and drive) from Marshall (not the house), but the Good Stuff bar is a great place to hang out, have a beer, and wait for your ride.

Pictures don't do Riversky justice...

  • 5 of 5

Riversky Lodge was everything I could have hoped for and more. The view was spectacular, the rooms cozy, comfy, and luxurious, and really just perfect all around. I couldn't have asked for a better place to spend a long weekend with friends. The kitchen is perfect for cooking together, the sunroom provides a nice little get away when you need alone time, and the deck brings breathtaking views both during the day and at night. I can't say enough positive things about this place...

Best vacation home ever!

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 12 and we had my wife's baby shower at this vacation home. It was a fantastic house and will definitely be in our memories forever. Joan was great in getting the house ready and she had emailed me the directions and also was available on phone in-case we missed the route. Her hospitality definitely needs a mention.

Tip: If you have a iPhone, the apple maps directly takes you to the driveway!

Beautiful site!

  • 5 of 5

The view is spectacular. The house was very nice and well maintained. The deck out back had a gorgeous view and was shaded in the evening which was perfect for dinner on the patio. Most kitchen supplies present, but bring your own olive oil, spices, saran wrap, and tin foil. Everyone in our party got lost as the roads are not marked at all. If you use google maps it gets you there better than the iphone maps but the last turn up the driveway is still easily missed. The hostess responded extremely quickly to emails. Overall had a fantastic time and would definitely recommend it.

More than we dreamed

  • 5 of 5

This rental met our every expectation and more. The rooms were well laid out, the kitchen was easy, and the house was well stocked with every possible item you could ever think of needing. We especially enjoyed the wood fireplace in the main living area, and assumed we would have to buy wood, but the owners made sure we had more than enough firewood. Our grandchildren especially loved walking down to the river and climbing the hills and cliffs on the 20 acres of land. We also enjoyed the wild turkeys that came by several times during our stay.

I can't say enough good things about this property. The only slight negative might be that it is a little hard to find, and the access road is a "interesting", but the owners again, have gone into minute detail, even with photos to make sure you don't get lost. We will definitely come here again.
