The River Lodge Bed and Breakfast

This past weekend my wife and I helped our granddaughter move into her Sorority House at Western Carolina University. We searched the Internet for a place to stay while we were in Cullowhee and found The River Lodge Bed and Breakfast, only 5 miles from the college.

The River Lodge Bed and Breakfast We finished early with the move in and were ready for a nap since we had been up since 4:00 am and driven 5 hours to get here. The problem was it was only 11:30 am and check in at the B&B wasn't until 3:30 pm. I called and asked if there was anyway that we could possibly check in a little earlier and the innkeeper, Cathy was very helpful. She went out of her way to get our room ready 2 hours early for us and we were so grateful.

Now if you are going here for the first time, I would highly recommend doing it in the daylight as this charming B&B is definately off the beaten path and would be difficult to find in the dark if you didn't know where you were headed! Of course, all of that adds to the beauty and peacefullness of The River Lodge. It sits nestled in the hills and overlooks a valley and the Tuckasegee River.

When you first enter the rustic lodge your attention is drawn to a massive stone fireplace in the great room. We were told the building was made from 100 year-old hand-hewn logs taken from old barns and cabins in the Smoky Mountions Region. It is decoratied with antiques, crafts and a Native-American motif.

The innkeepers, Cathy and Anthony were charming and very attentive to our needs during our two night stay. Our room was cozy and very clean and we enjoyed our visit there so much we really didn't want to go home!

One of the things we like best about staying at a Bed and Breakfast is the breakfast part! Our tastebuds were delighted as we enjoyed the culinary delights offered by Cathy and Anthony. The food was delicious and the presentation was stunning.

We met the other guests at breakfast and enjoyed their company. We made friends with one couple who lives about an hour away from us and their daughter is also attending WCU. We talked about getting together again in the near future. Everytime we stay at a Bed and Breakfast, we meet the nicest people.

We have already talked about coming back again next month for a repeat visit and hopefully our schedule will allow us to return very soon to this wonderful Bed and Breakfast!

I've recently heard about this place when I and my aunts were discussing about the b&bs we've tried so far. They say the warmth of this place brings back the memory of how they've stayed in these bali villas for rent in an island in Indonesia. Great service and ambiance. What more can you ask for? Will definitely be visiting these places soon.
