  • The Parker family vacation


    Loved everything, especially how well equipped everything was. Beds were so comfy and everything was very clean. We stayed in January also and had a beautiful snowfall.

    From the owner: "Hi Terri,
    Thank you for leaving Riverbend Roost a review. It’s always a wonderful compliment to host repeat guests. Thank you for being wonderful guests. I’m so happy that you enjoyed your stay and found the house to be clean and well-appointed."

  • Highly recommend


    We had a wonderful stay. 3 adults 2 kids. Plenty to do for all. Very clean, comfy beds and easy check in/out. The view was awesome, hot tub fabulous and s'mores pack greatly appreciated. We used the kayaks, although out in is a bit difficult. Wish we had 2 cars so we could have put kayaks in up stream. They do have a small trailer to transport the kayaks if needed. Firewood provided. Kids loved climbing on the rocks by the river and there was a cute tree house/play set for the kids. Definitely recommend

    Shared from the owner: "Hi Rachael, thank you for taking the time to leave Riverbend Roost a review. I'm so happy that you and your group had a wonderful stay. Thank you for recommending Riverbend Roost! That’s a wonderful compliment. I agree, having two vehicles makes it much easier to enjoy the kayaks on the river. We have been considering keeping a bike at the property to help guests who only have one vehicle. It’s a wonderful, easy bike ride and will make it possible for guests to leave their cars and bike back. Your feedback confirmed that we will follow through with that plan. Thank you for being wonderful guests!"

    Beautiful home and location! We spent a nice evening and dinner around the fire pit on the deck. Despite rain on the second day we were still able to enjoy the big porch and make the short drive to Boone for a little shopping. We look forward to coming back next summer and staying for a few days to kayak and enjoy the river. Highly recommend this home!

  • Absolutely gorgeous!


    My husband, his parents, and our kids (2.5 and 5.5) had a wonderful stay here! It is a gorgeous house, both well decorated and well appointed. Everyone was comfortable. It was a little too chilly to fully utilize the river but I can see it being a great place to play in the summer months. The hot tub was perfect! Great location - an easy drive to Grandfather mountain, Tweetsie railroad and downtown Boone, among other things.
