For us, the location was great and right around the corner from Vali Cruces Park and Maw's Produce. Close to Boone, Banner Elk and Blowing Rock. The house was well supplied and the communication from Blue Ridge Rentals was well managed.

Our favorite lasting memories were made at Grandfather Mountain, Blowing Rock, and Old Time Photo! The home was very well equipped and we loved the fire pit!
- Beverley, Posted: 07/03/2021
The house was big enough for all 10 of us and there were several places to allow us to spread out, too! This house is a great spot for visiting Boone, Blowing Rock, ASU campus, Blue Ridge Parkway, Grandfather Community, and so many perks and hikes! We loved the house! Appreciated the well stocked kitchen and many appliances. Good written info for the house. By far the best equipped rental we have ever had with rustic furnishings and bear theme! Thank you!

One of the nicest cabins we've ever rented, and it was centrally located to LOTS of fun places to visit and explore!

The Lodge at Riversound was a perfect setting for our family to get together!! The drive way easily accommodated our vehicles and was easy to maneuver. The kitchen was well equipped and easy to use. There was plenty of seating for all of us to eat together and a variety of bedrooms to accommodate everyone!! We really enjoyed the hot tub and some heated air hockey competitions!
- Kendra, Posted: 03/22/2021
Great place for a family vacation! Comfortable beds, nice size home with plenty of rooms to spread out!
- Donna, Posted: 03/10/2021
We had an excellent time on our vacation. We enjoyed staying at the lodge at Riversound. The children in the group even the adults enjoyed the game tables. The kitchen as well equipped for large family cooking with plenty of dishes. The hot tub was perfect even on freezing cold night. I would definitely recommend staying in this home. We were in a group of eight with plenty of room.
- Julie, Posted: 03/02/2021
We loved the cabin. The property was perfect for getting away and feeding a large group. We actually had more space than we needed for a group of 10.

Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us, we really enjoyed our stay! A few observations for future visitors - the home is closer to Boone than to Beech Mountain (if this matters for your planned activities, i.e. this house isn't "remote" if that's what you're looking for) therefore the roads aren't much of an issue but the driveway is (so take the warnings seriously). There are numerous bedrooms, etc. but the main (middle floor) is by far the coziest and that has a master suite (with a lovely soaking tub) and another bedroom with a half bath. The downstairs is the play room area and has another master - this area can be made cozy with the use of the stove and the space heater. We found the top floor bedrooms to be less cozy - if you had lots of kids, those bedrooms/bathroom would be put to good use; otherwise they're not as user-friendly for adults. The outdoor hot tub is fabulous - by the far the nicest and newest we've ever had at a rental! Appreciated the fully stocked kitchen and getting to bring our pets.

Favorite Cabin Memories ~ Sitting around the fireplace, binge watching cooking shows with my son, playing in the snow in the driveway, air hockey, and drinking coffee! We enjoyed having all of our family together! My husband's parents who are 78 and 86 years old in addition to my Mom we also had all four of our children with us and spent priceless time together. What a true blessing to have a home like this and thank you for sharing it with others. We hope to do something like similar in the future! Thank you very much for the REPRIEVE from our normal life filled with chronic health issues and my husband "deals with death" all day as a detective. Much needed break!

Our stay at The Lodge at Riversound was amazing. My wife and our friends enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere of this spacious, well decorated, and entertaining home. It was well stocked with extra touches that made our stay special. The beds are very comfortable. Ample seating in both the kitchen and living room areas. We especially enjoyed the air hockey and ping pong tables. At night we enjoyed a soothing dip in the hot tub after hiking the local trails. You can tell the owners take pride in sharing this beautiful home with others. We really enjoyed our stay and looking forward to our next visit there.
- Summer, Posted: 10/07/2020
We had the BEST time staying at The Lodge at Riversound this past weekend! The house is unbelievable. The location is convenient to downtown Boone, Blowing Rock, Valle Crucis, and Grandfather Mountain. The decor is cute and cozy, perfect for our fall getaway. There was ample room for us to spread out, and enough bathrooms that we never had to wait on anyone to get ready for the day. There was never an opportunity to be bored with the numerous outdoor activities at our disposal and the lodge's amenities—air hockey, ping pong, outdoor hot tub, movies, books, and tv. We spent quality time together while relaxing and recharging. We had a marvelous time and can't wait to book another vacation at the Lodge at Riversound soon!
- Steve, Posted: 09/16/2020
We loved the house. We both work in health care and needed the time away from the hospital and patients. The house was well taken care of and we enjoyed every inch of it. Our favorite cabin memories were teaching our son to play ping-pong, laying in hot tub with my wife. Adult drinks with my wife without children. Having Odin, our 130lb German Shepherd with us. Our favorite cabin activities were ping-pong, grilling, air hockey, hot tub soaks, time with family without video games was a big plus! We loved our time here and plan to come back ASAP!
- Nancy, Posted: 08/26/2020
Our favorite cabin memories were playing games with family and reconnecting. Our favorite cabin activities were crushing my husband and daughters in ping-pong, air hockey, and getting in the hot tub! Please tell the host that they have a beautiful home and thank them for sharing.

The cabin is lovely and well supplied. We had everything we could have wanted. It was clean and well maintained. The only thing I didn't like was the lighting. Particularly in the upstairs bathroom.
