The cabin is the perfect place to stay for a mountain vacation. It has everything you’ll need inside and the outside space is incredible! It’s decorated perfectly and feels like home. The river is a great spot to fish, we were surprised by how many fishing guides bring their clients right there to fish! My family caught trout, bass and a few other fish right off the bank in the yard. They were also able to swim right from the steps and even wade out in the river to fish. We would definitely stay again for another vacation.

Very quiet, clean home right on the river. Had everything we needed for a week stay. Would definitely go back.

this home was right in the water! It also has a hot tub! The bathroom is alittle small. We will definitely be going back!

Location, location, location! The house is small, but it’s location on the river is what you’re paying for. The views, sounds, and fishing are top notch!

Loved the location! Cozy place that fit my family perfectly

The cabin was so small and cozy for just two people. The only downside is the road across from the river and the master bed was a little uncomfortable, maybe a mattress topper could fix this issue. Otherwise it had all the amenities we needed for a small getaway. We will definitely be returning!

This was our first time here. It was very clean and well stocked with everything you would need for a quiet relaxing weekend. Already trying to figure out when we can come back. Great little town.

Quaint little cabin along the Tuck! Enjoyed the hot tub overlooking the river. Perfect spot for 2 people.

This house was perfect for us! Right on the river for a little trout fishing. Close to the Smokys for some great hiking and waterfall viewing. Dillsboro,Sylva and Bryson City were all fun little towns all decked out for the holidays! My only recommendation would be a few extra blankets for the bedrooms!
We hope to come back in the summer for some kayaking on the river!
We will be sure to address your comments about the blankets with the local staff! Thank you!

Camp was as described. Just the rite size for the two of us!(would sleep more). My wife and I enjoyed the river front location along with the convince of being close to town. We didn't spend a lot of time in the camp we spent most of our time in the backroads taking in the scenery. We normally take three to four trips a year to the mountains and would rent again if go back to the Sylvia area.

Everything about the place said relaxation. Would have given 5 stars, except the bathroom was a little dirty. Hot tub, fire pit, grill, river, master bedroom was all fantastic. We will definitely be return tenants.

"The river is RIGHT THERE Daddy!" We had a great time. Fantastic fishing spot (be aware of Delayed Harvest rules!) and we were so busy we never used the hot tub. Very tiny bathroom warning for big men. Clean, bug free, and the best view from the porch you could want. Close to lots of fun things in the area. We road the Great Smoky Mountain Railway. Several of my friends wanted the link after seeing my pictures.

Cute as a button. We loved the hot tub overlooking the river.
Jennifer K.Jul 2019
Perfect getaway with beautiful river view. Definitely would book again

We enjoyed our stay in North Carolina and River Romance was the prefect home base. I loved waking up and having my coffee on the balcony while my son “communed” with the local geese. We were so lucky to have a family with 3 baby geese nearby and they were so cute to watch.

Good, clean cabin.
