Built with 100-year-old, hand-hewn logs taken from old barns and cabins in the Smoky Mountain Region, the River Lodge Bed and Breakfast provides North Carolina mountain lodging while holding a character all its own. You can experience rustic elegance at its best in a unique structure tucked in the Blue Ridge Mountains on a river bend.

The lodge sits on six acres of rolling mounds of manicured fields and streams that take you to the frontage of the Tuckasegee River. A cascading waterfall flows along side the inn while rhododendron, hemlocks, and ferns line a long driveway that winds to the entrance of the lodge. You can enjoy the view of the mountains from every direction!

As you enter through an oversized front door made of wormy chestnut, you will find yourself looking upon a massive stone fireplace which stands boldly in the great room. Its hearth beckons you to sit and stare at a glowing fire that dances before you. An eclectic blend of furnishings encourage you to relax and enjoy surroundings that warm your body and soul. For entertainment, an antique Brunswick billiard table spaciously stands in the great room. Enjoy a good game of chess on the game table, listen to the music, or peruse the books and works of art. An American Indian motif throughout compliment unique antiques and crafts.

The innkeepers have paid much attention and detail in all the guest accommodations. Queen-sized, mountain-made log beds dressed with plush pillows and cozy comforters will help you get a good night's sleep. Each room features extraordinary accessories, wild life wood carvings, American Indian prints, mission oak, twig, and turn-of-the-century furnishings. Accommodations may have Cathedral beamed ceilings, views of the forest and meadow and some have the added splendor of a balcony. Wifi Internet access is also available.

Several private baths feature claw foot tubs and brass fixtures, as well as separate showers. Pedestal sinks that take you back in time suggest old-world charm with new-world conveniences. The suite offers a whirlpool for two and some guestrooms feature large showers for two. Scented soaps, plush towels and warm bright colors fill the rooms to make your bathing experience a delightful one. All the ceilings are wainscoted and the floors are made with local quarry stone.

The River Lodge invites you to sit on its porches and balconies to enjoy the river, waterfall, and streams that surround you in this mountain hideaway.

Your accommodations include a full country breakfast served in the dining room. Weather permitting, breakfast can be served outdoors on the breakfast patio which overlooks the inn's waterfall and the river. Wake up to freshly ground, perked coffee and specially selected teas as a starter. A three-course breakfast may consist of baked pear stuffed with almonds and bits of fruit atop a pear preserve, homemade muffins or biscuits, and Eggs Benedict a la Croissant. Enjoy fresh baked hams, sausages and hickory-smoked bacon as an accompaniment to your entree.

Six hundred feet of riverfront lends itself for riverside activity throughout the day. Fishing is a splendorous sport here, allowing visitors to take in both the scenery and a great catch. Surrounding attractions abound as well such as the Smoky Mountains National Park and Blue Ridge Parkway. Rafting, skiing and Smoky Mountains scenic train rides all await. If you are feeling lucky, Harrah's Casino is nearby for a game of black jack or a spin on the slots.
