Just wanted to let you know how wonderful our week was at the cottage. None of us had ever stayed in a more restful, serene environment. The cottage is so lovingly maintained that we felt totally pampered. Your thoughtful touches to provide for yours guests' comfort is so evident in everything from the wonderfully stocked kitchen to the soft bed linens. There was nothing that we didn't love, and think that you are very trusting to allow strangers to share in this delightful place. We had wonderful visits to the river, Roaring Creek waterfall and the park down on Route 80. We had great meals at Albert's and the country club as well as at Mt. Mitchell and Little Switzerland. Whenever I learn of someone wanting to visit the mountains, I will tell them about Rivermont; it was truly all that I had hoped for and more.

Thanks again for sharing this treasure with us.

My husband and I were raised in Burnsville and we look forward every year to "going home" to visit family and friends and play golf at our favorite course (Mt Mitchell). We have found our second home at Rivermont Cottage. What a delight! Has everything you would want. The place is spotless and so cozy. We especially enjoyed the river and the birds! Will surely go again.. Thank you for sharing your home with us...

Our family just got back from a week staying at "Treetops." It was very comfortable and spacious enough for the eight people in our family. We had young children, teenagers, parents and grandparents and we all thoroughly enjoyed the area. The view was wonderful and the hikes to waterfalls, rivers and mountain tops were spectacular. A great family vacation! Becky did a super job making our vacation easy and convenient.

Your house by the river was absolutely wonderful! It was so relaxing to sit on the deck and listen to the river flowing by. You have furnished the home with every amenity needed. Now we just need to find a few days so we can return. I might add the trout fishing in the area is some of the best NC has to offer.

Becky, we were completely happy with your wonderful home, the setting was so great, we were able to sleep late, lounge in comfort and look and feel the wonderful fresh air of the mountains. Thanks for the use of such lovely accommodations. Thanks again, hope to see you next year.

TreeTops Lodge is very spacious, accomodating 6 of us very well. The nice, oversized deck with good privacy made for good conversation and relaxation. You won't be disappointed.
  Doug McClure, Chicago, IL

WOW! What an experience. The lodge is far more than what I expected. As soon as you walk in you can feel the comfort, security and serenity. The views from the lodge are nothing short of breathtaking and every effort has been made to ensure a comfortable stay... we had forgotten to bring a corkscrew to open our wine. To my surprise, we found one in the drawer as well as wine glasses. We knew then that all the essentials of life were here!!! My only regret is that I did not book it for a longer period of time, but I will rectify that next year.
