Description



Welcome to Riverbend Lodge! 

Riverbend Lodge is a recently renovated, upscale mountain vacation home directly on the Watauga River in Valle Crucis, close to Boone and Blowing Rock.  Enjoy the spacious dining table, with ample seating (including adjacent bar top), the comfy leather couches, large flat panel HDTV and fireplace in the open format living room.

The game room downstairs boasts an 8-foot slate Pool Table, huge flat panel HDTV, comfy seating and lounging options, and a glass door leading out onto the hot tub deck, as well as a second exterior door leading out to the front yard and down to the river. One of the most unique aspects of this property is the river frontage, which is easily accessible with an area to play, relax, splash, and fish.

Sleeping Accomodations:

- Main floor (master suite features king bed)

- Upstairs (two bedrooms, one king and queen that share a full bathroom)
 
- Downstairs (bunk room with single over queen and king bedroom that share a full bathroom)
 

Important Notes:

-The maximum number of unrelated guests is 6, per neighborhood covenant restrictions. If guests are related, maximum occupancy is 12.
*Some guests have reported spotty cell phone service*
*Guests may park up to a maximum of 4 vehicles on the property, due to limited parking available next to the lodge, and the need to minimize impact on the natural environment.  Additional off-site parking is available at the Carolina Cabin Rentals office (less than 10 minutes away) should travel needs call for using additional vehicles.
 
*The driveway crosses the Watauga river on a low bridge.  Flash Flooding, while rare, is a possibility in extreme weather events, and the bridge may become unusable for a period of time until the river level subsides. The driveway is steep and curvy and a 4 wheel drive vehicle is required in inclement conditions. Chains are recommended as well for winter driving in the High Country.


CANCELLATION POLICY:
You may cancel within 24 hours of booking and receive a full refund.
If you cancel more than 30 days before arrival, you will receive a refund of half the amount paid to date.
Cancellations within 30 days before arrival date do not receive a refund.  But you may recover the entire amount if travel
insurance was purchased and the reason for cancellation was covered.

I didn't interact with members during the trip, however, I received many helpful emails and courteous, friendly responses when I sent questions.

This house was perfect! There were 10 of us, ranging in age from 11 to 79, and we had plenty of room to spread out and not feel like we were on top of each other. Having the river right on the property was fabulous- my nephew went fishing every single day we were there-sometimes more than once a day even though we were out doing other activities in the area much of the time. Great location- private yet close to so many fun activities.

I called the day before we were to arrive and the guy I spoke to was very helpful and knowledgeable of the area and was able to answer all my questions. I called when we arrived to see if it was possible to check in a little early and the girl who I spoke to was wonderful to help. We were not able to check in early but she was very friendly and nice. When the air conditioner broke, the two guys I spoke to were nice and quick to try to get us the maintenance folks.

We are a family of 12 and found this home to be a very comfortable, relaxing, fun place for a family vacation. The location of being close to Boone, Valle Crucis, Banner Elk and Blowing Rock was perfect. We found many good places to shop and eat. Everything was so convenient. The river was so close and we all enjoyed hearing the sound of the water at night as well as playing in the water during the day.

Home is lovely. Have rented other properties and by comparison, found this one poorly stocked.
Property
Enjoyed our stay, home met expectations. At this price point expected a little better stocked: like hairdryer, more than one towel/person for this like stay, toilet paper Kleenex, aluminum foil or plastic wrap, detergent. Trash bags. Kitchen utensils good, but no serving pieces for flatware, needed more dishtowels, and more dishwasher soap. Could use more games/cards.

We had such a wonderful stay! GPS did lose the street but because we were provided directions ahead of time, this was not an issue. Check in was easy. Home was very well maintained and very clean. There were some minor things that needed some attention such as a few light bulbs had burned out, popcorn maker in game room didn't work, Keurig was broken (but there was a back up coffee pot), etc. But these are to be expected and I am sure they were so minor they weren't even brought to the attention of the property manager until we arrived. We needed help with the spa and they came same day to reset the breaker. We didn't have any issues with kitchen supplies-everything we needed was there. No issues with neighbors. It was SOO nice to have the river right at the bottom of the hill to fish in.. be sure and bring some chairs to sit on though.. there are only rocks down there to sit on! And the walk is VERY steep so if anyone is in ill health they may have a hard time getting down there. Overall our trip was amazing and we will absolutely be returning!!

We really enjoyed the house, its location and the cabin feel with all the modern amenities. This house would be a perfect 10 if there was a fire pit and a few more pans for cooking and a bigger grill. But all in all we had what we needed for a nice stay in boone.

Notes

Fishing is permitted on this section of the Watauga River.  Please be cognizant of posted signs alerting you as to where fishing is and is not permitted.  Also, fishing ONLY ALLOWED for those who have obtained a valid North Carolina fishing license!  No exceptions!  Fishing licenses can be obtained in multiple places in the High Country, Wal Mart is one place that sells them in Boone.

When you leave the house in your car, coming down the driveway from the house, there is a sharp left turn onto the driveway leading to the bridge.  This may be a two-point turn for some cars and large SUV's.  It's negotiable, just proceed with caution.

Also, please respect the fact that the small parking area adjacent to the bridge (to the right) is *not* for our use.  That belongs to the neighbor and he does use it.
