    The home was exactly as described. Well furnished and very comfortable communications with owner were top notch. The steps to the river are quite long for seniors, but we certainly enjoyed the view from the deck. The only addition I could think of would possibly be an outdoor fire pit. Hope to return one day.

  • Exceeded Expectations


    This house is spectacular. The photos are beautiful, but it is even nicer than the pictures! It was a perfect home for three couples! The landscape is breathtaking. We so enjoyed the screened porch and deck and were able to hear the river and experience the complete serenity. The walk down to the river is worth every step and we all enjoyed sitting on the deck down there!The beds are so comfortable, the furnishings are exquisite, and the kitchen was fully stocked with everything we could desire. The wine and popcorn were such a special treat!Tara reached out and anticipated every question I could possibly have. The location can not be beat. Obviously, I can’t say enough about this property and the owners!

  • A perfect retreat


    We enjoyed a week at the River Run House, which is a beautifully appointed home stocked with everything you need from cooking a meal to laundering your clothes. We enjoyed hiking each day at nearby trails…all of which led to magnificent waterfalls! We spent a couple of rainy afternoons in Cashiers shopping and enjoying the Lea Ann Fine art gallery. Each night we dined at amazing restaurants and were particularly impressed with The Fix ( yummy Eggs Benedict! ), The Library Kitchen & Bar, The Orchard and Osteria del Monte.

    We loved sitting down by the river with a glass of wine and listening to the peaceful sounds of the water tumbling over the rocks and seeing “Spring” trees burst into bloom. It was the perfect place to spend time with friends!
