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.

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.

Awesome gem in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for a girls getaway weekend and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The house has everything you would think you need and we made the most of our time here. Joan was wonderful to work with and I would highly recommend this property to any future guests. The road to the house is a little daunting but the views are worth the trek up the mountain!

Mountain Trip with Friends

  • 5 of 5

Riversky was everything that we'd hoped for and more. We had a large group (10) and the property accommodated all of us with plenty of space for group entertaining as well as quiet seclusion. The hottub overlooking the mountains was exactly what I was looking for when I booked this trip. My friends and I are hoping to make this an annual trip and we'll certainly stay at Riversky again if there's availability.

Family reunion

  • 5 of 5

Riversky was much more than expected. It has breathtaking mountain views from the spacious back deck where you are often wrapped in a cloud of mist, which quickly evaporates, with your first coffee of the day: other mortals cannot be seen nor heard because you have end of the road privacy; outstanding professional décor with a fern theme was throughout. Our two teenage grandsons totally enjoyed the pool table and there was space for other family members to comfortably gather around and make it a pool party. Such comfort. Such beauty. Such a wonderful place to totally "get away." This is a perfect place for a family reunion. The owner could not have been more cordial. It is a wonder that she allows this luxurious spot to be rented.
