THEY TAKE PRIDE IN WHAT THEY DO!

WOW ! It doesn't get much better than this, this is our 4 time staying here, Great Cabin, Great people to deal with, they make it so easy, and the fishing was very good this time, a Great place to spend our anniversary!

This is my all-time favorite rental home! The only complaint that I have is that it was too brief......our fault, not yours of course! Thank you!
- Erica P., Posted: 06/21/2015
I absolutely loved this cabin and before I ever arrived the people on the phone where just as nice. I definitely would recommend this to others.

This was our second time visiting this AMAZING cabin. We had the time of our life! We had snow and beautiful sunny winter days almost the entire time. The owner Kent is so hospitable and we will continue to visit every year! Thank you Kent for everything! We will stay in touch. This is one vacation destination we will refer to everyone we know!
- Doug & Jacquelyn D., Posted: 04/04/2016
Outstanding in every way! We stayed four nights in this cabin right at the start of fishing season. Its an outstanding cabin with all the amenities one could hope for and located in a beautiful setting along the Watauga River. We feel very fortunate to have selected it for our vacation in North Carolina and are already talking about when we might return. Highly recommended!

This cabin is a trout fisherman's paradise! The trout fishing was fantastic and I was able to land the largest trout I have ever caught. We visit the mountains a couple of times a year to fly fish for trout and we usually have to spend half of our vacation time driving to a fishing spot. It was so nice to have such great fishing in our backyard! The cabin is very comfortable and private and just a short easy drive to great restaurants and shopping. We hope to return soon.

This was our 3rd visit to River Runs Through It located on the GORGEOUS Watauga River. My husband and I along with our 2 four legged family members had an amazing experience for the 18 days that we stayed. We can honestly say that this cabin now feels like home away from home. We are both realtors from Tampa, Fl and have experienced many vacation rentals and homes that do not compare to this cozy, well built, fully stocked cabin. From the minute you get here you have everything you need. The owner takes a special interest in your needs and makes sure that he is available if you have any questions or need assistance on where to go or how to catch a fish. For those nesting cabin days that you just don't want to go anywhere you even have all the upgraded cable channels to watch plenty of movies and escape the world. The location could not be better if you want to check out the town. You can get to so many beautiful places in less than 20- 30 minutes. We highly recommend this cabin and plan on coming back every year.

The cabin was perfect and we wish we could have stayed longer! We loved that we were steps from the river! The hot tub was a major bonus! It was home away from home. Now, if only it was our home!! We will definitely be coming back!
- Debbie, Posted: 05/12/2017
Thank you for providing us with a beautiful home & gorgeous landscape! We loved our visit and even put together a 550 piece puzzle due to rainy weather. We hope to come back in the fall some year. Great hiking! We love it here!!
- Victoria, Posted: 05/12/2017
We could not be happier with our stay at A River Runs Through It. This was a very quick decision weekend for our family and somehow lucked our with this home being available. Our fur baby thoroughly enjoyed herself too because it's the first time she's been on a vacation with us. We can't wait to return over the next 4 years since our child will be attending college in Boone! So excited. Thanks very much!
- Kristen, Posted: 05/12/2017
This was our first family vacation and we are so glad we chose A River Runs Through It. This was home away from home and we wish we didn't have to leave. We will definitely be coming back in the future!
- Debbie, Posted: 05/16/2017
The cabin and location were ideal for our visit to the Boone/Blowing Rock area! The charming cabin was in excellent condition and very spacious for 4 adults. We loved the sound and perfect view of the river! Will definitely stay here again :)
- Kenneth, Posted: 08/25/2017
We really enjoyed your cabin. It was perfect for our family of 3. Very cozy and comfortable. Thanks for all the little extras that make it feel homey! The weather was cool and rainy but perfect for some lazy down time which we really needed. Look forwarded to returning.
- Christina, Posted: 08/25/2017
We loved this placed the minute we walked in. There is so much to in the area and we were never bored. We can’t wait to come back!
- Angela, Posted: 08/25/2017
Your cabin is so amazing. Our family had the best time playing hockey, cooking, fishing, playing games. The river is relaxing, the hot tub as well. We have made some fun memories ere. Thank you for opening your cabin to us. We feel so blessed and refreshed to have stayed here and we enjoyed our family vacation so much!
- Margaret, Posted: 08/25/2017
Thank you for a wonderful week! This is our 3rd visit here. We lived here 35 yrs ago and can’t wait to come back and retire. Our favorite things was Roan Mtn & Carvers Gap hike is a must. The last day we hiked Beacon Heights Overlook on the parkway mile post 305.2 Short and easy hike with fabulous views. My husband fished and caught a Huge trout although it got away! We visited all of the craft breweries in Boone, Banner Elk, Beech Mountain, . Thank you for sharing these hidden paradise. We Will Be Back!
- Alice, Posted: 08/25/2017
Our thanks for the opportunity to spend a few days in your cabin. We enjoyed fly fishing the river and making a lot of wonderful memories with our daughter and son –in-law.
- Bobby, Posted: 10/27/2017
Had a great time at our cabin! Great experiences with Blue Ridge Mountain Rentals! We have rented from them for years and highly recommend them! They always make it easy for booking, checking in and checking out.
- Cliff, Posted: 02/26/2018
From making the reservation to the arrival at our Cabin everything was 5 star. The pictures didn't do our cabin justice it was truly amazing. Once we arrived we never imagined what a Beautiful Relaxing time we would have. It was extremely convenient to Blowing Rock, Boone, West Jefferson and Banner Elk. We both have bragged so much since we have been back as to how great everything was from the Reservation process with ya'll to the end of stay there. The Cabin was very clean and the staff let us know that once we arrived no matter what time if we found an issue to please contact them immediately. I would strongly suggest to anyone that is looking to make arrangements for a Vacation that they allow Blue Ridge Mountain Rentals the opportunity to help you with your accommodations.

I wanted to do something special for my husband's birthday to celebrate and let me tell you, this cabin did not disappoint! Blue Ridge Mountain Rentals provided a seamless process and outstanding customer service. We will continue to use them moving forward.
Kent provides firewood, which was a nice touch and the cabin is spotless and has everything you need. We cooked most meals in the cabin and it is truly now our home away from home. We are planning our next trip where we can bring our son and fur baby and we can't wait.
The pictures can't do this cabin justice. It backs up to the Watuga, and the soothing sounds from the river put you right at ease. One day we decided to walk out on the river, it was incredible and the views are out of this world.
One of our favorite things to do was relax in the hot tub, which is right outside and beautiful. My husband and I looked at each other and said, “We've got to get one of these.”
Blue Ridge Mountain Rentals and a River Runs Through It surpassed all of our expectations and we can't wait to return! =)
- Jennifer, Posted: 05/01/2018
This was my husband and I's second time staying here and we brought our 12 year old son who had an absolute blast and is talking about when we are going back! =) This is truly our home away from home, and we have found our own drop of paradise hidden in the woods and backing up to the Watauga River. We arrived Friday afternoon and our son Colton was over the moon with excitement because he got the whole upstairs to himself, which includes a state of the art Air Hockey table that we played on a lot and had a great time. He had a TV in his bedroom and a full bath to himself, little man couldn't be happier.
You can walk right outside on the back porch and have total privacy while you walk to the hot tub, which is definitely one of our favorite things to do any time during the day. Colton's face when he saw that he had a hot tub was priceless, so full of excitement.
Downstairs you have everything you need, and my husband cooked almost every meal, which made it feel even more like being at home. We grilled steaks one night on the back porch, and sat outside watching the River as the sun was coming down. True Serenity.
Saturday we walked out to the River and jumped from rock to rock, making it a good ways down, and made a friend with a goose who stuck close the whole trip. Colton and the Goose, was so fun to watch. Later on that day we ventured into town and did some shopping, and also went rock mining and found some beautiful stones. Fun for the whole family.
I can't say enough great things about this Cabin and how much privacy you have.
We are already talking about our next trip to a River Runs Through It. So grateful that I came across this property on line and I don't have to look any further when I'm going to the NC Mountains. This is our special place that we can enjoy year after year and continue to make wonderful memories.
My family and I would like to say a HUGE THANK YOU to BlueRidge Mountain Rentals, which is hands down, the best Rental company I have ever worked with in my life. They make the process seamless and fun and are there to help you in any way. Thank you so much ladies for truly making my family and I the happiest people in the world. You go above and beyond every time and I can't wait to work with you again.

Highly recommend! Wonderful experience all around!
- Jeffrey, Posted: 06/25/2018
Great location for a summer getaway. The river is relaxing and extremely accessible. Fun family activities are close by as is convenient shopping but you still feel secluded and away from it all at this property. Highly recommend! We'll be back for sure.
- Melanie, Posted: 08/06/2018
We thoroughly enjoyed this wonderful cabin. It is a fantastic wooded getaway on the Watauga River!
- Barbara, Posted: 09/04/2018
Roomy cabin with great views. The deck was wonderful for reading, relaxing and thinking. Our pets love it! You can walk down to the babbling brook, soak your feet and skip rocks.
- Tammy, Posted: 10/30/2018
We enjoyed our stay in "A river runs through it" very much. The cabin was roomy and very clean. Beds were very comfortable. My husband enjoyed fishing and caught 2 large trout. That made the trip for him! Our two german shepherds loved the Watauga, as well as I did. We would definitely enjoy staying there again. We didn't have much luck finding a place to have dinner in Boone. That led us to try Blowing Rock, which we absolutely loved! Our favorites were Six Pence Pub and Mellow Mushroom. Both welcomed us and our dogs. There are some other places we didn't get to try this visit, but plan to next time.
- Sherrie, Posted: 07/08/2019
Your home is fantastic! We are already planning our next trip up here. The location is something out of a dream or movie! My husband and I grew up with access to rural areas like this, makes us feel like kids again. I wish I could stay all summer!
- Michael, Posted: 10/06/2019
We had a great stay. The house and location was ideal for our group of four adults. Plus, fishing right in your backyard can't be beat. We will be back!
- Michael, Posted: 11/04/2019
When we arrived at the home we were instantly comfortable. The home was clean and well equipped. View and access to the river was fantastic. We'll be back!
- Jenny, Posted: 11/07/2019
Wonderful long-weekend stay at ‘A River Runs Through It’ with family. Fantastic trout fishing. Rental was cozy, very well-appointed and well represented by rental company. Would definitely stay there again.
- Medissa, Posted: 01/08/2020
Awesome get away! So much fun exploring the beautiful river, drinking coffee & cocoa by the roaring, cozy fireplace, relaxing in the hot tub after a long fun day of skiing at Sugar Mountain and just enjoying the scenic views and serenity the cabin and property have to offer. We will definitely be back real soon!
- Melinda, Posted: 01/20/2020
We Absolutely loved this cabin!! It was my Birthday and our Anniversary and we couldn't have picked a better spot..I can't wait to go back hopefully this time the leaves will be turning and we can sit on the back porch and enjoy the beauty of this wonderful peaceful place!! I Loved the fireplace and the hot tub was Amazing!!
- David, Posted: 01/30/2020
The cabin was clean, comfortable and cozy. Excellent wood burning FP and soothing Hot Tub. "A River Runs Through It" was exactly what my wife and I needed and we are seriously considering a return visit in the near future.
- Faye, Posted: 02/04/2020
Two king bedrooms, one up and one down made it ideal for two couples. The cabin is a short ways down a dirt road and right on the Watuaga River very convenient to Boone, Valle Crucis and skiing. It has a well stocked kitchen and was very comfortable.
- Eric, Posted: 02/11/2020
Cabin was clean and had great amenities . Staff was very attentive and everything was well taken care of.

Lovely cabin with great vibes of river!
- Heidi, Posted: 11/02/2020
We had a fantastic time! The cabin was cozy with a fire in the fireplace each morning and night. The hot tub was wonderfully relaxing. The owners have a nice supply of items in the kitchen to make any meal easy to prepare. We will be back!

My husband and I had such a relaxing weekend here and we will definitely be back! It is very clean, the beds were comfortable, and the sound of the river was delightful. We enjoyed the use of the fireplace and the hot tub. There are multiple hiking trails nearby. Overall, it was fantastic!

A beautiful cabin. Staff was friendly and helpful.
- Matthew, Posted: 01/19/2021
this place is awesome!! right on the river. went during the winter. snowed our first full day there. for Florida ppl this is a very rare miracle. first time my kids had ever seen proper snow. what ensued was a full day snow ball battle between my boys. fishing is pretty good too. fireplace and hot tub were just what we needed to warm up after playing outside
- Shelley, Posted: 01/22/2021
Perfect size for my husband and I and two little boys under 6. Loved the roaring sound of the River in the backyard and the proximity to App Mtn.
- R Louise, Posted: 01/22/2021
We absolutely loved our visit to this mountain cabin! It was a perfect get away and we plan to make it a must each year. The rental company was outstanding with service and even helped us locate a high chair because we forgot our own.
- Yvonne, Posted: 02/26/2021
The 4 of us and our dog, Miller, loved this house! Our friends stayed upstairs and we were down. We loved sitting outside on the pretty back porch!
- Jamie, Posted: 03/04/2021
Wonderful location, clean and cozy home. We would definitely come back again. Thank you!
- Shannon, Posted: 03/22/2021
We had a great time hiking at nearby places. While at the cabin the boys loved jumping rocks on the river, playing air hockey and making a fire. The hot tub was great too! Cabin was clean and had many amenities. We would stay there again!
- Heather, Posted: 03/29/2021
AMAZING!! The location is to die for. Boys caught 2 rainbow trout in river off front deck within 2 hours of checking in. Close to everything! Clean, well stocked, huge hot tub, great fire pit. Excellent response time from housekeeping when we identified we needed more towels! Can't say enough great things about this place. We will be back!
- Erin, Posted: 04/08/2021
This place was exactly as pictured! The river was awesome and lots of great hiking near by!
- Tanya, Posted: 04/19/2021
Great Getaway! The cabin was just like it was advertised. It was very clean and the view was amazing. We enjoyed siting on the deck relaxing and fishing in the river. We would definitely recommend this cabin.
