Location Details

'RiverWalk' Community is in a 'Certified Wildlife Habitat' granted by the National Wildlife Federation. There is a great diversity of birds, wildlife, and plant families in this Chestnut Oak Ecosystem along this ancient river valley!

After you arrive, you'll want to walk down to the waters of the French Broad River and spend your day lounging riverside! This quaint riverfront area is perfect for a refreshing float in an inner tube or paddling around the islands. If you're not an Olympic swimmer, you best tether to a tree to avoid a float-trip to the Gulf of Mexico.

Don't miss a leisurely mile walk (or ride) down the pristine River Road (old trade route) to see the 4,500-year-old Native American pictographs on historic Paint Rock. If you're an experienced climber, you'll love the high look-out of the river bend at the state line. We suggest you explore Cherokee National Forest Paint Creek Recreation Corridor following the creek up to the swimming hole with picnic tables, bathrooms, waterfalls, and hiking trails. (Take your tubes, life jackets because of strong currents).

The best place to start your tour of Hot Springs is at the Visitor Center, where you can get maps of the town along with hikes to Lovers' Leap, Max Patch, and Trust. Plan to dine out at several of the many local cafes and diners with live music! Visit the gift and gear shops, and don't miss the original Gentry Hardware.

Enjoy the sounds of The Gathering at Paint Rock Farm

    This is a sweet little studio overlooking the French Broad River. Ginny Lentz is a joy to rent with and has filled the studio with helpful hints on how to enjoy your stay.

  • Good location, quiet


    Wonderful property. Shower is not for short people. Really small, can't get head and face out of the way of the water. Hair gets wet every time.

  • Great home, close to town but in a beautiful National Forest setting. Ginny was a great host!


    Ginny was a great communicator and took the time to let us know about the area.

  • Great stay


    We really enjoyed our stay at the Riverwalk Studio. The property is beautiful. We really enjoyed the arts and crafts, fairy garden and all the dinosaur toys. The riverside was fun to explore. We were too scared to swim in the river, as the current was strong. And, there wasn’t an area that was easy to get in. The shower was really small. It would have been nice to have a washer/dryer. The most difficult part was taking our garbage and recycling with us. We drove for hours with garbage in our car. But, We are looking forward to staying again.
