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.

Great home. Just as, If not nicer in person than online. Celebrating Christmas was a delight.

  • 5 of 5

This home is in a beautiful gated community and is well maintained. From the hot to the fire pit. Our kids loved the ping pong table. And I loved the convenience of the easy access to all the shopping distanations. However the only lacking thing, Was there was no recliner. But we will want to rent again.

Beautiful House

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful, well appointed, well equipped house. The three abd 1/2 bathrooms were spacious and spotless. The owner even provided wood for the fireplace. Our family all said this is the best place they have ever stayed.

You will love this home!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at this home once or twice per year for the last three years and we are never disappointed. The property is well decorated and has all the amenities that you expect. The owner is responsive and accommodating. For us, the location is central to all the things we like to do in the high country. As waterfront property on the Watauga River, there's no cliff hanging drive to access the home (which makes my wife happy). It's very convenient to a main road...yet far enough away to have privacy. My only reservation to leaving an even more glowing recommendation is that it might make it harder for me to book the home next year.

Wonderful mountain experience

  • 5 of 5

This property has all the comforts of home as well as every mountain vacation perk you can think of. Spacious and beautifully decorated rooms made relaxing so easy. We enjoyed s'mores by the fire pit on cool nights and walks by the stream. Family meals and bonding time in the cozy living room were had by all. Our son loved the upstairs bedroom which he utilized as a play space. I just can't say enough positive things about it....other than we would love to go back already and we just left today. Overall....memories were made that will last a lifetime.

The Twin Rivers Community is conveniently located off Hwy. 105 in Foscoe, N.C. within minutes of the many activities the High Country has to offer, from hiking the Profile Trail to Shopping in Blowing Rock to a day at Grandfather Mountain or Tweetsie Railroad or a leisurely drive along the Blue Ridge Parkway, just to name a few…. Centrally located 10 minutes from Boone, Banner Elk and Blowing Rock, your dining options are limitless while staying at Rivers Edge or just stay home and roast hot dogs over the stone fire pit and listen to the tranquil sounds of the river. For winter months, Sugar, Beech and Appalachian Ski Mountains are all within 10-15 minutes for skiing, tubing or snowboarding.
