RiverHaven, with its walking-out lower level of our two-story home, can be entered through both an inside (down some stairs) or a convenient outside option. Not only will you be instantly taken by the long-range mountain view, but the sight and sound of the Big Laurel stream below. Plenty of eating space outside, or enjoy the porch swing while taking in the view.

The open kitchen concept will let you prepare meals from a well-equipped kitchen while visiting with family and friends who might be traveling with you. Plenty of eating space at the hand made trestle table, or to pull out a board game or puzzle. The book nook provides of reading material including novels, biographies, children's books, and historical information on the area.

Sleeping arrangements in this comfortable space offer a queen bedroom, which can be closed off from the rest of your suite for a restful night of sleep. The gathering area has a recent addition of a queen comfortable Murphy bed to expand your sleeping space.
Don't forget the tiled shower, heated bathroom floor, and on-demand hot water system. This would be an ideal vacation spot for a family with small children or for two adult individuals looking to go on a trip but also have their own space.

Unique Features

The first feature, that really made us decide on these two properties, was without a doubt the view! How can you beat mountains and water all tied into one to be enjoyed from your private patio and deck space? At night gather around the tabletop fire pit while taking in a sky full of stars. Your space and the outside blend together with plenty of casement windows to bring in light, and the sounds of nature to your door step. You can regulate your own heat and air conditioning from the thermostat within your space. Ceiling fans are in the gathering area and bedroom for a good night's sleep. The floor plans were given much thought to creating space that is both functional, and aesthetically pleasing. RiverHaven has everything you need that will make you feel right at home.

We have added a more traditional wood-burning fire pit as well, for those tasty gooey treats that you might remember from past camping days.

Things To Do

Visitors to Madison County, North Carolina will find themselves immersed in beautiful natural scenery, interesting tourist opportunities, and a relaxing break from wherever they came! The beautiful mountains of North Carolina are especially spectacular in the fall, where an array of reds and greens, and yellows will greet you in a setting that gives new meaning to the phrase, ‘outdoor cathedral.’
There is no lacking when it comes to outdoor adventure: hiking, biking, fishing, rafting, zipping, and now E-biking. You will find a complete binder of options, and contact information to plan your days at RiverDance. Whatever, the season, there is much to do and explore.

Both Hot Springs and Marshall are within a short distance of RiverDance. The Hot Spring Spa's mineral water makes for a perfect soak to top off your day. The Big Pillow Brewery has live music, and is a popular gathering spot. Check out the work of local artisan's at the Artisans Gallery, and you just might satisfy your sweet tooth with some ice cream. Bluff Mountain Outfitter, Gentry Hardware, and of course the Visitors Center full or rich history, is not to be missed. Marshall, a charming old river town, has two prominent gathering spots: Zuma's where you will find the best Blue Grass around the third Thursday each month, and Zadies which originally was the old jail, and now a great place to eat, while enjoying the French Broad River. Flow (Body and Adornment) one of my favorites, and other shops open their doors for you to pick up some treasures to take home. The fully renovated glove factory known as Capital Mill is a combination of residential, retail space, and a spa.

Outside explorations: Asheville, Black Mountain Area, Chimney Rock, Blowing Rock, Montreat, Billy Gram's The Cove, and the list goes on. Regardless of how you choose to spend your time while you are in the Blue Ridge Mountains, it will be memorable, and you will want to return after finding your mountain getaway.

No Service Fee

At RiverDance we do have to collect the appropriate state use tax (6.75%) for North Carolina, but we avoid the Tourism Development Tax of 5% since we only have two suites. However, folks like Airbnb and Vrbo automatically collect that tax from you regardless of the number of units under management since it makes their life easier.

There is a $50 charge per dog per stay to pay for the extra cleaning that pets create.

Woohoo! We are offering vacation rental special(s)

Check out our twofer special on our website, where we will reduce the price by 20% if you reserve both SkyView and RiverHaven.

Reviews

Just stayed with Dave and Callie up at River Dance and OMG. My wife and I talked about our stay all the way home (3 1/2 hours) and finally decided upon 3 words to describe our getaway. Quaint – We’ve stayed at both of their airbnb rentals – River Haven and Sky View. Both rental properties were clean, and beautiful, and embraced what you would expect to find in the mountains of NC. The view from the bed in Sky View is absolutely Amazing. Rejuvenating – When you enter the Bear River Lodge property in many ways the stress and craziness of the world get put on hold. Whether you’re sitting on the deck at River Haven drinking morning coffee, hanging in a hammock, or listening to the sounds of Big Laurel River it’s easy to turn off the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Heavenly – I think this word is the most fitting to describe our stay. The mountains, Appalachian trail, Max Patch, Big Pillow brewery, downtown Marshall, and Hot Springs Resort (tub 15) all of which made our stay phenomenal. River Dance will always be our home away from home in the mountains of NC. We can’t wait to come back again- in October.
I think anywhere else we stay from now on will always be compared to RiverDance. I imagine we will say things like, this place is nice, but it is no RiverDance, Danielle B.

About the Owner/Manager

As our youngest headed off to college, it was time to strive for new adventures, and the magic of the North Carolina mountains called us to make Bear River Lodge our full time home. We opened opened our timber frame home, named RiverDance to guests, so that they too, could enjoy the amazing beauty that is so much part of this very special place. It came time to simplify our lives two years ago with less square footage so that we could spend more time with family and grandchildren. So, once again, we carried RiverDance forward to 55 Laurel Ridge. Both SkyView, and RiverHaven (Second Rental option on property) have been designed to create an exceptional mountaintop experience for our guests. It is a great place to call home as you venture out to explore all that Western North Carolina has to offer. We welcome you to RiverDance, your mountain getaway.
