Overview

About the property

4 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 9

Rivers Edge Lodge is a luxurious and meticulously crafted mountain style home completed in 2010 and has direct frontage on the pristine Watauga River. This beautiful mountain retreat is located in the exclusive 350 acre gated community of Twin Rivers and is centrally located to all that the High Country has to offer. If your idea of paradise is relaxing beside a tranquil river and unwinding to the calming and restorative sights and sounds of nature, welcome to Rivers Edge Lodge.

Unwind inside this impressive and well appointed home, offering 4 bedrooms and 3 ½ baths and sleeping accommodations for 9. Outside the home, activities abound. Take a bike ride or hike through the community’s miles of managed trails along the Watauga and Boone Fork Rivers that connect to the Julian Price Park trail system or visit the many attractions in Boone, Banner Elk and Blowing Rock only minutes away from the home.

Entering the home you will appreciate the elegant and rustic quality with hickory floors, vaulted beamed ceilings, hand crafted wooden trim, 10’ ceilings throughout the main floor and featuring a grand wood burning stone fireplace. The remarkable view of the river is apparent directly ahead. The gourmet in your family will enjoy the kitchen, well equipped with granite counters, island with gas stove and stainless steel appliances. Also on this floor is the beautiful dining room which will seat 6-8.

The master bedroom is an en suite and furnished with a king bed, large screen HDTV and an amazing view of the river. Imagine yourself waking in the morning to the sound of the river and that view! Two other well furnished bedrooms are also located on the first floor and both contain very comfortable memory foam mattresses on Queen beds and large screen HDTV’s. The children will enjoy their own upstairs retreat, furnished with a full bath, full/twin bunk beds, large screen HDTV and an extensive collection of DVDs to keep them entertained. There is also a large laundry room with washer and dryer directly off of the main living area and 2 car garage, where you can kick off your flip flops, river shoes or snow boots. Consider River’s Edge, your “home away from home”, but stay connected with the available high speed wireless internet service.

At the end of your day, take a break by the river at the fire pit and roast marshmallows or relax in the 6 person hot tub positioned right outside the back door with a fantastic view of the river. Or just sit and relax on the large, fully furnished back deck while the cook grills on the outdoor grill.

About Chris

I am a civil engineer and live in Charlotte, N.C. with my wife and three children.

Chris purchased this house in 2010

Why Chris chose Boone

The river along the property is fantastic for me and my family and the location is very convenient for dining, shopping and various other attractions.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our visit to River's Edge was awesome. The home is elegant, clean, and very well maintained. It was well stocked w/ all the utensils and implements we needed. The customer service was top notch including a cord of wood delivered upon our arrival. We enjoyed cozy nights in front of the fireplace. The proximity to hiking and restaurants was valuable as well. I highly recommend this home for a lovely vacation stay.

Riverside Luxury

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home on the Watauga River. Really enjoyed being with great friends for a fun weekend. The outdoor fire pit was so nice during the day and the indoor fire was great at night. Home has everything you need for a fabulous time. Highly recommend!

Great Property!

  • 5 of 5

The house and surrounding land were great. Chris had everything a family needs to have a great experience. We had a slight issue the second day. Since Chris couldn't get a repair man to fix it until the next day, he drove up the mountain and made the repair himself...great service! You won't regret staying at this property!

Excellent vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

We returned this year to this location because our stay last year was so nice. Everything here is a first class house. The location is very nice as it is easy to get to by the river, not up on a mountaintop. Thanks for such a nice vacation house.

Beautiful home and property and perfect for our family!

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfect vacation at Rivers Edge Lodge! The house is beautiful, the lawn is spacious, the Watauga River is soothing and the fire pit was fun. Our little ones loved the bikes and our 5 year old granddaughter learned to ride without training wheels! The long driveway made it easy for them to ride and the gated community made riding a pleasure without much worry of cars. We all loved tournaments in ping pong!

We love to cook and this spacious lovely home made it easy to fellowship and prepare lovely meals with the kitchen being so open.

Evenings on the beautiful porch, in the hot tub and games around the table made many memories.

The owner Chris was quick to answer all questions we had before and during our trip.

We have rented many homes in the high country and this one is definitely our favorite!
