  • One of the best properties


    One of the best properties we have stayed at and we have stayed at quite a few. Very clean, spacious and they provide a lot of little extras you don’t normally see. Very personable but you have complete privacy. I would recommend 100%

  • Loved the back deck!


    This place was perfect for a long weekend with hubby. It was immaculate with thoughtful touches throughout: snacks and coffee, phone charger, and robes in the bathroom closet. Close to state parks with fishing, kayaking and hiking. Any time we were not out we loved spending time on the back deck where we saw deer, tons of songbirds at the feeder, hummingbirds at rivers edge, and osprey diving into to the river to get their next meal. We loved it and will definitely visit again.

  • Peaceful vacation


    The Riverhouse was perfect for my son and myself. It was so peaceful to check out for a few days and enjoy all the sounds of nature and the beautiful scenery. Listening to the River in the morning and afternoons, trying to fish (lol), watching all the birds and even some deer across the river. It was exactly what we needed. It was a perfect spot for all Elizabethton, Johnson City and Bristol have to offer. We enjoyed some trails, waterfalls, and downtown of each city. Matt and Sue were the perfect host too!! We hope to come back soon!!!

  • A Truly Relaxing Gem


    This is such a great property. It was perfect for our needs. We were in the area checking out colleges for my son. We were close enough to all of them and close enough to get some leisure activities in too. The unit is spotless and everything is brand new. There were many pros...too many to name. Being right on the water was therapeutic. I did book this because the photos showed a fire pit, but there currently is not one. It was a minor hiccup. I really did want to sit by the fire and listen to the water though. The shower is tiny but again...minor hiccup. The owners are very thorough and even had great list of activities and restaurants to try. We hiked Roan Mountain. It was awesome. As for eats...Timbers and White Duck Taco in Johnson City were awesome. Smokey Mountain Bakery had great pizza but I would not go back. The place is kind of gross and it was overrun with flies. I'd say stay away. We only ate because we were short on time and extremely hungry. I would have liked to get to some of the other recommendations. We researched them and they sounded great.As for the review of the person who walked in and left, I read that to my 16-year-old son and his response was "How the heck could you walk in the front door, see how awesome this place is, and then see the view out the back and want to leave? That person is crazy." I concur.

    Response from owner: "We so appreciate you taking the time to construct such a detailed review. Hopefully, your son was intrigued by one or more of the colleges in the area. We apologize for the missing fire pit. We are in the process of building a new one as the one in the photos got decimated by beetles. We continually update our recommendations list and will undoubtedly take your experiences into consideration for the next printing. We hope you will come again."
