We loved our stay! The lodge was very nice and the area outside was gorgeous!
- Kali, Posted: 10/18/2022
The cabin is absolutely adorable, with every amenity needed available. Although close to others, you never feel that way. The grounds are expertly maintained to provide privacy and the closeness of nature. The views of the creek are spectacular. Could not recommend this place more, it was everything we had hoped for.

We really enjoyed our stay perfect summer getaway perfect by every means
- Chuck, Posted: 08/04/2021
We had a fantastic week at the cabin. It is beautiful and well stocked. Two BBQ gas grills. Beautiful overlook to the river. Centrally located to lots of wineries, restaurants, bars, Grandfathers Mountain and scenic areas. Host service was fantastic and always fast to communicate with us. Extremely happy with our stay and service.
- Sharon, Posted: 07/14/2021
We thoroughly enjoyed our time here. The house was perfect and met all of our needs. The traffic noise can be just a little loud but it’s manageable and the property makes you feel at home.

The River Sound cabin was a perfect place for our small family! Conveniently located near the Elk River and close to a beautiful hike with a waterfall on the Lodges at Eagles Nest property. Everything you could need is supplied in the cabin and the owner was super helpful and came out within minutes when we needed him. Joanie was very attentive with texting us before we checked in and at departure to make sure everything went well. We love River Sound and the surrounding area. We'll be back for sure!!!
- Leslie, Posted: 05/28/2021
This is a cozy spot for a couple or small family. The surrounding area was beautiful. There is a lot of privacy even though it is close to the road and some similar cabins. They way the property is situated you can't see any other cabins nor the road so you feel like you are out in the wilderness. The cabin and wilderness themed decor makes for a great experience. Bed is comfortable, finishing touches are high end with beautiful wood, slate and other stone finishes. Very nicely done. Easy trip in to Banner Elk and you have access to everything Eagle's Nest has to offer. Take advantage of driving through Eagles Nest for amazing views and fun mini-golf.
- Lynn, Posted: 05/17/2021
Eagles Nest...the mountain is magical. The cabin is beautifully created. Everything you need and more. The river view and the sounds are enough in itself. Communication for this rental is exceptional!!
- Tyler, Posted: 05/10/2021
Very cozy, yet efficient cabin for a small group
- Jason, Posted: 04/26/2021
Perfect for a weekend getaway. Just the right size.
- Grant, Posted: 03/24/2021
My wife and I had a great stay here. The house is actually across the street from the larger, gated community, tucked in with about 3 other homes in a separate, gated area. The decks are a wonderful place to relax and house is quite elegant. As some have mentioned the only downside is being right next to the road as you can hear traffic (mostly the bigger trucks) as they drive by. However, the 2 min walk to beautiful fishing water more than made up for this for us.
- Cliff, Posted: 02/22/2021
The cabin was great, extremely clean. The Eagles nest community is a great place with plenty of activities for the whole family. Great location and close to many attractions.
- Robert, Posted: 02/18/2021
Great weekend experience for our family. Cabin was exactly as described and in a perfect location for trips to seven devils and grandfather mountain. Property manager was very engaged throughout the process and made the stay hassle free. Our boys already want to know when we we’re coming back.
- Rebecca, Posted: 01/13/2021
My Husband and i stayed for the Christmas Holiday and it was the best Small cozy House. It snowed Christmas eve and we were so excited to have a white Christmas. They were amazing to deal with.
- John, Posted: 12/12/2020
For its size, a very well built and thought out space. You will be “cozy” with the ones you love; with the opportunity to create some outside space and explore when ready! I read it was close to the road and it is close.
- Kathy, Posted: 11/20/2020
Property was exactly as described. Very comfortable and clean. Had a great time in the area.
- Brian, Posted: 11/16/2020
Husband, wife, and 9 yr old daughter on trip. There were larger properties to choose from, for sure, but we didn’t need anything bigger. The size of property was perfect. Loved the open floor plan. We realized after checking in how much this felt like a cabin. Others look like cabins on the outside but more like houses on the inside. We never noticed the traffic on the road. The pictures don’t do the interior justice. The main bed is solid wood with wood carvings of trees on posts. Two beautiful orange lamps on each side of bed were awesome. The fireplace is nicely done, with stone, not too gaudy. Wooden ceiling, wooden stairs, wooden front door, wooden flooring etc....
- Tammy, Posted: 11/12/2020
I can't say enough about this cabin. It was perfect for our stay and my only regret is not booking more days. We spent an entire day on the property just exploring all the beautiful surroundings and another day nearby on the Blue Ridge Parkway. We visited nearby Grandfather Mountain and then went to Blowing Rock and Boone for the afternoon. We loved returning to the cabin and cooking meals in the kitchen. The cabin is breathtaking and very clean and the porch is amazing with the view of the creek. It was so relaxing. We could hear some road noise at times but we didnt mind it. Will definitely return!
- Taral, Posted: 10/23/2020
This was a perfect cabin for our small family, located by the river and ample outdoor space to enjoy the nature. It was few minutes from some great waterfalls, tracks and Grandfather mountain. We absolutely loved our stay here.
- Richard, Posted: 10/03/2020
We were very impressed with the quality of this property from the amenities, cleanliness, and the excellent communication with the property manager Joanie. The only downside is it’s proximity to the road. There was little more road noise than I prefer which could be a deal breaker for some. Despite that it’s definitely a 5 star property and worth renting.
- Duncan, Posted: 08/21/2020
Great opportunity to take a safe vacation amidst pandemic. Property was well cleaned and maintained with easy access to Banner Elk. Beautiful and cozy. The multiple terracing balconies overlooking the river really make this place standout. All sorts of great amenities and conveniences of home. Property manager was friendly and easy to work with.
- Mary, Posted: 12/10/2019
The cabin is amazing and has all the amenities you could possibly need. Location can't be beat as it is close to town with lots of restaurants possibilities. I've rented the cabin 4 times and can't wait for my next stay!
- Elizabeth, Posted: 12/03/2019
Loved our stay. Will be back
- Susan, Posted: 11/13/2019
My husband and I enjoyed 4 nights in this beautiful home. Peaceful location yet just minutes from downtown Banner Elk. Beautiful outdoor living space which backs up to a creek. Would stay here again!
- Jennifer, Posted: 10/31/2019
We loved staying at Riversound! We had all we needed in our cozy cabin and really enjoyed being on the river! The cabin was beautiful and the kids loved the loft area. Amenities were top notch. Super clean! We will be back. Only negative was the traffic noise since we were so close to the main road. But it didn't dampen our vacay!
- Debra, Posted: 10/25/2019
My sister's and I very much enjoyed this cabin and it's proximity to the river. The sound of the river among the fall color was spectacular. The cabin was solid, very clean and had everything we needed. Local restaurants were great. Town's people were friendly. I would definitely come back to this area. The only drawback with this particular cabin is it's proximity to the road - there is a good bit of noise from it. Everything else was perfect though so if you don't care about cars/trucks going by, this cabin is awesome! A special thanks to Joanie for all her helpfulness! She rocks!
- Andrew, Posted: 10/03/2019
This house was the perfect getaway for my wife and I! It had everything we needed to feel at home in the mountains and was extremely tranquil! We will definitely be revisiting!
- Daniel, Posted: 09/27/2019
Joanie was over the top accommodating. The property was exactly as described, very clean, convenient to town, great views of the creek out back, and overall just a great little cabin.
- Adam, Posted: 08/22/2019
Very nice property. Smelled new when we first walked in. Very clean and well decorated . It has all of the amenities you need like cooking utensils, laundry products and toiletries - no need to pack anything from home except clothes and hiking boots. There's even a fishing pole for use in the local pond. Though it is close to the road, we knew this going in. Road noise was not a problem at night and we were out and about during the day anyway. Communication with the property manager was very good - always got a prompt reply.
- Joe, Posted: 08/06/2019
The expansive decks are great for relaxing to the sounds of the river. The Cabin is beautiful and well appointed. Very comfortable location I would stay here again and highly recommend this beautiful unit. If a big group is getting together, as in our case, it would be a plus to rent one of 4 units in this pod.
- Paige, Posted: 07/31/2019
I felt this was a great cabin. View was spectacular. Amenities were exactly what we needed.
- Matthew, Posted: 07/16/2019
Nice well-kept smallish cabin with open layout plus loft. Lots of deck space for views of the stream. Pool access next neighborhood over (5 minute walk) and community access. Road is directly behind the house but not terribly noticeable. Overall a great stay.
- William, Posted: 07/09/2019
Joanie was very helpful Great trip
- Michele, Posted: 07/07/2019
Couldn’t get any better. Place is gorgeous
- Kristen, Posted: 06/18/2019
Not only was the cabin great, but more surprisingly was the Eagles Nest neighborhood with all of the included amenities. My kids had a blast at the Toy Barn having access to all of the different sports equipment. Overall, we had a great stay! Would go back again!
- Doug, Posted: 05/04/2019
We booked the last minute Easter / spring break vacation and stumbled upon this wonderful place. The cabin and Eagle's Nest my wonderful family get away. We will come back again and again. Thanks!!
- Derek, Posted: 02/22/2019
This is a hidden gem!
- Denise, Posted: 02/22/2019
Love the Lodges of Eagles Nest and this cabin was beautiful! The river view from the back deck was amazing!
- Joy, Posted: 02/22/2019
Great place for a couple or small family! It is very easy to get to. Beautiful cabin has everything you need in it for a short stay. It is right off the road but the sound of the creek definitely muffles the traffic.
- Colby, Posted: 02/18/2019
Super cool, open floor plan cabin! Its even nicer than the pictures and it has everything you need! Will definitely go back.
- Alan, Posted: 02/18/2019
Great two days in the River Cabin. Beautifully appointed high end build. Nice setting. Joanie was communicative and terrific with details for our stay.
- Aaron, Posted: 02/07/2019
We had a great vacation taking the kids to experience snow for the first time. The cabin is perfect for our family and we hope to return in the summer time.

- Dr. Jeff, Posted: 10/28/2018
The property is lovely for a weekend getaway with lots of charm!
- Robin and Todd, Posted: 10/23/2018
The level of thought-filled details that comprise this cabin's construction, amenities, furnishings, outdoor vantage points, and overall comfort are second to none. We'll be back, again and again!
- Liz, Posted: 08/15/2018
After driving five hours from Nashville, we arrived on Thursday late afternoon to paradise! Sometimes when you see something advertised on line, it never quite looks as wonderful in person. Well, imagine our delight to have all our expectations exceeded!! It was like living in a cozy tree house! All the finishes were high end and the bed was insanely comfortable! The location is awesome, easy driving to Banner Elk, Beech Mountain, Blowing Rock and Grandfather Mountain. The house was equipped with everything we needed to BBQ and have a fabulous dinner outside and enjoy drinks on the porch. Can't say enough wonderful things about our experience!! We'll be back!!
- Amy, Posted: 08/13/2018
We were so impressed with this little cottage! It was CLEAN which is so important to me. It also had up to date furniture and appliances. The scenery and back porch area were also a plus! We will be staying here again next year. It met all my checkmarks for a vacation house! Super close to the action of Banner Elk! We felt relaxed and had everything we needed!
- Kathryn, Posted: 07/13/2018
Cozy loft with lovely outdoor living/dining space. Great neighborhood amenities!
- Jason, Posted: 02/18/2018
We had a great time. The location was convenient to the Banner Elk, Linville and Grandfather Mountain areas. The setup was perfect for a couples weekend.
- Kristin, Posted: 10/13/2017
Loved our stay at the Riverfront Cabin. It was beautifully appointed and well-equipped. Communication with management was smooth and effortless. We received a detailed email with check-in instructions and codes prior to arriving, and everything went as planned. The outside decks were amazing and we enjoyed drinking morning coffee or an evening glass of wine overlooking the river. Our kids loved the loft, and the space was perfect for a family of four for a weekend getaway.
- Judson, Posted: 09/15/2017
This property was absolutely delightful. Well suited for a couple or a family with small children. The cabin is small, one room with a loft but the owners have spared nothing for decoration and furnishings. Home sits next to other cabins but backs up to the river and woods so it has a very private feel. We spent tons of time on the back porch, that is furnished with comfortable couch & chairs, and my boys loved watching football on the outdoor TV. We enjoyed the amenities, the fishing ponds, it was simply a wonderful stay. Wish it lasted longer!
- Dan, Posted: 07/17/2017
Magnificent cabin with stunning construction and design. Very rustic and stunningly appointed, attention to every detail. Will be back.
- Susan, Posted: 06/25/2017
Awesome little cabin, beautifully decorated with everything you could possibly need right on the river. It does not get any better than that. Joanie, property manager, was quick to respond to any questions we had. Well worth the stay.
- Kathy, Posted: 05/15/2017

- Megan, Posted: 11/15/2016
Where to begin. If you are looking for a quite getaway with your spouse, or if you have small children and would like to visit the mountains--this is the perfect rental. Everything about the property is special. My wife and I rented the cabin for the weekend. Upon our arrival on Friday evening our 2 children (11 and 7) were so excited. The cabin is a one room structure with an exposed loft that sleeps 2 comfortably. The cabin has a rustic feel while all of the appliances and amenities are state of the art. The master king bed was very comfortable. The property is located beside a stream and the relaxing sound of the stream was so peaceful. The owners clearly spared no expense in designing this cozy getaway. The Bedding, TV, Shower, washer-dryer, TV outside on porch were all perfect. Selfishly, I hesitate to write this review because I would like to keep this gem a secret. The amenities in Eagles Nest across the street (basketball court, disc golf, and playground) were also an added bonus that we plan on utilizing on our next trip. Go ahead and book this cabin, you will not be disappointed.
