Overview

High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains House Rental Photos and Description

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.

So relaxing!

  • 4 of 5

We spent four nights at Twin Rivers, and wished we had stayed another four! So peaceful, so relaxing! Love the layout of the home. The beds were super cozy! The loft for the kids was great! Nice kitchen and outdoor grill. We enjoyed the roar of the fire, and the babble of the river just steps off the back porch! We definitely plan to visit this Appalachian gem again!!

Delightful! Elegance w/Warm, Welcoming, Cozy Feel

  • 5 of 5

There really are not enough complimentary words to describe this lovely home! We met with dear friends and family to enjoy a long weekend and do a little snow-tubing. We had a wonderful time. From the moment you walk into this home, you feel welcome. The interior design and attention to detail inside the home is stunning -- open and large -- yet the warmth of colors and furnishings allow you a real feeling of coziness. The view is lovely, with a large covered back porch overlooking the river and a great fire pit. The master suite is truly fit for royalty -- from the beautiful, comfortable bed and furnishings, to the gorgeous marble bathroom. Huge!!! The other two downstairs bedrooms are, of course, smaller and share a bathroom, but are very tastefully decorated with comfortable beds, and more than ample closet space for all your needs. The loft upstairs is large, allows a great deal of privacy and has another full bathroom for the home. The half bath on the lower level is quite lovely as well. The owners were very friendly. It was delightful to see a lot of little thoughtful extras in the home you wouldn't always expect at a vacation rental home provided for you! We are delighted to recommend this home and have already decided we would love the chance to stay again. Many thanks for sharing your home for other to enjoy!

Fabulous home and fabulous location!

  • 5 of 5

Two families with kids of various ages met up here to enjoy some winter activities. Some went skiing, some went snow tubing and some went to downtown Boone to shop. The location is perfect because it is between all of these activities and took no longer than 15 minutes to get anywhere. There were bikes to ride and ping pong to play so none of the kids got too bored. The home is beautiful...very elegant, but very at home feeling. I would highly recommend staying here and hope to get back soon!

Perfect Home for Thanksgiving in the Mountains

  • 5 of 5

Rivers Edge Lodge was the perfect place for our family of 6 to meet and celebrate Thanksgiving. The home is beautiful and welcoming. The kitchen and great room are wonderful for bringing everyone together as we watched football and prepared meals. We loved the enclosed porch and spent time in the evening at the fire-pit just hanging out and making smores. It was nice the see and hear the river as we relaxed. Everyone had a bed or bedroom and there were ample bathrooms. The location was perfect for our needs-we could quickly jump on the blue ridge parkway and go hiking or head to Boone or Blowing Rock in a matter of minutes. Though in a development the home feel secluded & safe. We would love to come back again and again.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying at this home. It was absolutely perfect both times. The home includes all the amenities and is located between Boone and Grandfather mountain, and the original Mast general store is only minutes away. Make the decision to stay here, you'll be glad you did.

Awesome vacation home

  • 5 of 5

My family of 7 enjoyed the comforts this awesome vacation home offered. The home is located in a beautiful and peaceful setting. The home is also in an excellent location. Attractions, restaurants, the Blue Ridge Parkway and shopping are all just minutes away. So glad we had the chance to spend our vacation here.

The owner Chris was very considerate and available if we needed anything. Simply put this was a great place to stay.
