The River Lodge Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 2 Cullowhee B&B and Inns
Reviewed 23 January 2011

Cathy & Anthony delighted us with their hospitatlity and humerous stories. Our room was warm, clean, cozy, beautifully decorated and had great view of the mountainside. The lodge is full of windows for enjoying the river setting in January and the equally enjoyable interior rustic wood beams as well as other neat treasures. The breakfasts were a gourmet feast, both pleasing to the eye and palette. Be sure to ask about the legend of Rebok the dog....

Cathy and Tony are simply pros. They anticipate your needs and provide those flawlessly. Breakfast was not to be missed. Our room was small but more than adequate - clean as a pin and very comfortable. This inn is set in a beautiful location, picturesque and refreshing. One of the best we've had the pleasure of staying in.

We stayed here for three days, and it was great. Our hosts, Tony and Cathy were very nice and helpful. The Lodge was fabulous. The great room was huge and inviting. Tony lit a fire for us one night and several other guests joined us to chat and sit around the fire. Our room was small, but it didn't matter as we had the great room to sit in as well as a balcony right outside our room. The breakfasts were wonderfully delicious and so bountiful that we didn't need lunch. The area is lovely with waterfalls to see and mountain trails to hike within easy driving distance.

The River Lodge is located on the banks of the Tuckaseegee River in a beautiful part of North Carolina. The hosts (Cathy and Anthony) couldn't have been more friendly or hospitable. The second floor bedrooms are small but well appointed with direct access to a deck overlooking the pasture and river. The high point of our stay was the delicious breakfast . All in all we had a delightful stay.

We really enjoyed our stay at The River Lodge. The innkeepers, Cathy and Anthony were engaging and even though we were the only guests during our midweek stay, we told our travel stories and heard their travel stories and felt like we had met new friends. We chose "In The Wild" room with the full bath/shower. Even though the room is small, you have the balcony and the bathroom was spotless. With sightseeing around the area, you really don't spend much time in your room and when you do, it is a good time to catch up on your reading. One of Anthony's many talents is his cooking. Our breakfast was excellent. His Eggs Benedict with smoked salmon and shrimp was a winner. My husband has been telling everyone that I usually request a smaller portion but this time I should have kept quiet. These folks have been innkeepers for over 14 years and they really enjoy what they are doing and so do their guests.

The hosts are great - very friendly and entertaining. The lodge was wonderful, great fireplace, pool table (if you have time to play), relaxing furnature. The rooms were comfy and the claw tub was charming. The best part was breakfast. Make sure you are hungry, you will not be disappointed.

The River Lodge was a wonderful place for us to stay to celebrate our anniversary!

We enjoyed the impressive riverfront grounds and beautiful lodge, which had been crafted from the remnants of older log structures in the area.

The breakfasts were truly gourmet, and a wonderful way to begin the day.

Our bedroom was cozy, beautifully decorated, and immaculate. Although there were three other couples staying at the same time, we heard no noise from the other rooms during the evening hours.

The remoteness of the Lodge is both a plus and minus, as the location is quiet, but guests are required to drive to neighboring towns for lunch or dinner. But we enjoyed exploring the area and finding waterfalls, roads, river rafting companies, and lots of great scenery.
