Next to that is a bunk room with twin bunk beds and a flat screen TV that plays DVDs. The open concept living area upstairs has a great room with a gas log fireplace, 50-inch HDTV, sound bar and DVD player. The fully-stocked kitchen has granite countertops, an island and a large farm table. To the right of the great room are two additional sleeping areas with queen beds and a separate bathroom.

Outside on the lower level covered patio the hot tub waits for you. Additionally, the patio which stretches the entire front of the house includes an additional table and four chairs.
A large, gently sloping yard leads from the home down to the Watauga River across the street. Enjoy 75 feet of private frontage on the Watauga River, known throughout the region for its wonderful fly fishing, by taking a short walk down the private access to the river directly in front of the home. It is shallow and gentle enough so young children can splash and play, and after a heavy rain you can take a leisurely tube trip from several locations including from near the Mast General Store closeby. Resin Adirondack chairs are also provided so you can comfortably enjoy the riverside.
The home is conveniently located in the peaceful and picturesque community of Valle Crucis, five minutes from the original Mast General Store and the Valle Crucis Community Park, and is next door to the private home known as the Baird House, the oldest residence in Watauga County. Valle Crucis is close to many High Country areas including Boone, Banner Elk, Blowing Rock, Linville and Grandfather Mountain.
The home has plenty of space for all seasons - bring your skis and snow boots in the winter or your rafts, tubes and fishing gear in the summer!

This home was so perfect for our two families, I just cannot imagine it being any more perfect! The road in front is quiet and has very little traffic. The river is right there! You can almost check the conditions right from the front porch. Inside, the beds were comfy - my picky sister had the master bedroom on the main level and she RAVED about the mattress. My niece loved her bedroom on the other side of the main level, and my husband and I enjoyed our privacy downstairs in the master suite. There is a door at the top of the stairs, separating the levels, which made for very quiet mornings for everyone. We brought our coffee maker and set it up downstairs and had our own, private coffee station in the morning. No need to go upstairs and wake anyone! The house is stocked with everything you could possibly need - kitchen and entertainment. There is a wall of books, videos and board games! My husband loved being able to walk outside first thing in the morning and wade into the river. He even caught a small trout! We will back.- Sharon B., Posted: 08/05/2016
My family and some old friends from Florida spent a wonderful weekend in the well maintained, comfortable and quite attractive Riverdream cottage. We enjoyed a little fishing in the Watauga, visiting by riverside and family time inside the cabin. Everything was very nice. Our Florida friends hope to rent the cabin for an entire week this summer. I am sure we will be back too! Thanks!!- Bob G., Posted: 09/18/2016
The house was very comfortable and was a lot bigger than we originally thought from the pictures. Would definitely rent it again. Had an amazing time.- Julian, Posted: 01/11/2018

We had a great time at Riverdream. Great place to stay with LOTS of room for everyone!! We will stay there again!!!- Susan, Posted: 02/23/2018
The people we dealt with at Blue Ridge Rentals were absolutely wonderful. We appreciated the nice appointments: there were nice towels, games for the children, movies and good books to read. The kitchen was well equipped. The beds were comfortable. Everything was well laid out for our extremely large family and we enjoyed being right on the river. It was a great weekend. Thank you.- Carolyn, Posted: 04/17/2018
This was the absolute best mountain home that I have ever stayed in. Everything was perfect and could not have asked for a better place. Thank you so much!- Wilbert, Posted: 09/18/2018
This was a perfect halfway point for family coming from Florida and New York. There was plenty of room,games for the kids,comfy beds , a wonderful jacuzzi . We liked that the house was not too far up into the Mountains too.- Mary, Posted: 01/14/2019
My family rented Riverdream for a long weekend. Perfect in every way. Totally comfortable. Stunning view of the Watauga River which we had access to. Glorious hot tub enjoyable on cool summer evenings. 2 miles from the original Mast Store. Peaceful quiet surroundings. Spotlessly clean. Bravo to the owners!- Tom, Posted: 07/29/2019
House was roomy, clean and well stocked. Beautiful view of river. Good WiFi. Would love to rent again.- Lydia, Posted: 03/23/2020
House was very clean. Pictures were identical to posting. Beautiful location. Close to local attractions- Loretta, Posted: 09/14/2020
This house was perfect for our family including 2 grandparents. They layout couldn't have been better to allow for social distancing of our older, more susceptible to Covid, family members (they sleep on the bottom floor where they had an easily accessible 1 step entrance. The rest of the family had ample space in the clean and well stocked 2nd floor. The teenagers used the hot tub, everyone enjoyed the fire pit and evenings stargazing. The river just in front of the house was serene. I love to explore new places to stay when we visit the mountains but this house is a keeper! We did have an issue with the hot water heater (it didn't work) but the management company had it repaired the same day that I let them know! Great, quick service that didn't disrupt our stay at all.- Laura, Posted: 10/05/2020
We stayed at Riverdream in Sugar Grove for our weekend trip to Hawks Nest. Riverdream is a 5 bedroom house with beautiful view of the Watauga River just on the other side of the street. The house was large, nicely furnished, with everything we needed, including the (very hot) hot tub and all the small appliances we needed. There was even a generous supply of things we didn't expect (and don't get) in our timeshares, such as aluminum foil and baggies, plenty of dishes and glassware, including wine glasses. We were also pleasantly surprised that there was a large selection of books, DVDs, and games to keep everyone occupied at night. We will definitely stay here again.- Brenda, Posted: 01/15/2021
This is an amazing place to stay!! We loved it!- Whitney, Posted: 01/18/2021
Place was clean and everything was setup properly. I never needed to contact the management company. They even had two men come to shovel some of the snow off of the stairs when we were there. I recommend this place.- Michael, Posted: 01/21/2021
