Wonderful stay with Mom (87) and family. We all needed this getaway and it was everything we hoped for. Beautiful view and extremely neat and clean.

This is our second time staying at the River House and we loved it just as much as last time. Awesome location and great for kayakers like us. You’re able to launch right from the cabin!

I have rented places & didn't really care if I spent waking time there. That was not the case at the River House! I really didn't want to leave to sight see! The cabin itself is so comfortable, nicely furnished, & very clean. The pergola on the river was a lovely treat. We sat in the swings & watched the river ramble by. this place had everything we needed.

Truly the only thing I may have liked was a longer chair to lay in the sun by the river.

The River House is a great stay on the Tuckasegee River. There were some amenities possibly not listed like: Keurig coffee maker with pods(regular and decaf), fans in the bedroom closet to use for noise if needed, and a very quiet setting when we were there. The gazebo on the rivers’ edge was nice with the two swings. You can walk to the town by railroad tracks ( not used often) and many outdoor opportunities close by. We thoroughly enjoyed a relaxing stay as the house is immaculate and seemingly quite new. Thanks River House for an awesome getaway!

This is a really nice house, at a great location. Everything was clean and fresh. Both indoor and outdoor spaces were excellent. Nice furnishings throughout. Had an issue with internet/cable but a call to Vacasa and it was taken care of it very quickly, Nice staff to deal with. This place has three TVs. They replaced the coffee maker while we were there with a Keurig, the one that was there was a 4 cup, so check before you go to see if they put a different coffee maker in. All the appliances work very well. First time shower use (it is a great shower) floor was a little slick could have been the cleaner they used, we have a similar problem with ours, really need to rinse well or put a mat down. We will used this property again and Vacasa as well.

This house was perfect for us as were in town to move our daughter into Western Carolina. It was so conveniently located to campus and to Dillsboro/Sylva. After a long and hectic day we enjoyed unwinding by the river on the gazebo! House was neat and cozy! I would definitely book this house in the future!

The River House was the perfect place for our week of relaxing and unwinding. The house feels brand new, was very clean, and had all the amenities we could ask for. Being fairly secluded and right on the river was perfect. We'll definitely be back!

River House was everything we were looking for - along the Tuck, close proximity to Bryson City & Cullowhee, quiet, tasteful, and equipped with necessities.
Bobbie W. Jun 2020
Our stay was absolutely wonderful, there was everything at the cabin we needed to make our vacation relaxing, stress free, and joyful.
Ps. With it being a pet friendly cabin I would invest in furniture that is pet hair resistant, but all in all I would definitely book again!!!

The home is cozy, clean and convenient to two cute towns. I highly recommend the River House.

We loved this house! Great little house right on the river. Lots of upgrades!! Everything we needed including fast internet and satellite TV!!
We had a small issue with the heater, but they were very quick to come out, on a Sunday, to fix it!
Highly recommend!!

This was a great cozy getaway house to spend a few days with family. The house is very new with great amenities and views. We will be back.
Rebecca S. Dec 2019
The house was lovely and it was in a beautiful location right on the river. It had a wonderful firepit outside for the cold nights and the porch was delightful to sit on and relax.

They had basically everything you needed including at least a little bit of soap for dishes, washing machine, and dishwasher as well as towels, linens, etc.

Small home in Dillsboro. Easy to get to. We had a nice time.
Barry H. Nov 2019
Seems brand new, really nice construction and furnishings. Awesome location with Gazebo on the river. Could use some pots, pans and coffee mugs to complete the kitchen.
Manager response:
