Nestled in the heart of Valle Crucis, Riverview offers just that – a view of the Watauga River from your very own riverfront cabin rental.  Whether enjoying your coffee on the deck while watching the morning mist on the water, or while gathered on cozy winter evenings around the dining table, the river view is always there to greet you at Riverview!

This home has new furnishings, quality linens, and upgrades throughout to help ensure a wonderful escape, whether for a cozy anniversary weekend or a one week family vacation. The living area features a stone-front gas fireplace, flat screen television, and comfortable leather seating.  Lots of windows keep the open living area of this riverfront cottage sunny and bright.  The adjoining dining area has a large table, with seating for six, and others enjoy gathering at the counter as they watch the family chef prepare dinner in the well-stocked kitchen, with granite counters and new appliances.

When it is time to rest up for your next day’s adventures, you will find three comfortable bedrooms.  The master features a queen bed, and has it’s own small flatscreen tv.  The second bedroom, also with queen, is next door.  Kids enjoy the bunk room, offering a twin on top, double on the bottom, plus twin trundle pull out. This room also has a tv with an Xbox.  Just for one more sleeping option, there is also a queen sleeper in the living room.  The first full bath features a tub/shower combo, and the second bath has a convenient walk-in shower.

Once you are rested out, you may never have to leave the cottage for your entertainment.  There is a gas grill for dinner, and a large, flat yard is a rare find in the mountains, offering unlimited opportunities for family fun and games.  Bring your river tubes and kayaks to float away down the Watauga River, or just cast a line from the bank under the shade of the Buckeye trees.  Access into the water is easy here, so perfect for wading and splashing, or flipping rocks to find lizards and crawdads.  Plus, Riverview is located right on the Watauga River Road, popular for biking and running as the gravel road follows the river for some distance.

If you do decide to venture out, you will find popular spots including the historic Mast General Store and Valle Crucis Community Park just minutes away, or head back up the hill to downtown Boone for an ASU Mountaineers football game, or take the scenic byway over to Banner Elk.
