Description

Welcome to Riverdream!

Come and enjoy this beautiful riverfront home in peaceful Valle Crucis!

Sleeping Accommodations: Riverdream has four bedrooms, but one additional private sleeping area
Main Level: KIng Suite, Bunk Room with Twin over Twin, Queen Room, Queen Room
Lower Level: King Suite

With a reverse floor plan, the main level upstairs has a great room with a vaulted ceiling, kitchen, dining area, along with four sleeping areas and two baths. Downstairs has another family room, master ensuite with full bathroom and a laundry room.

To the left of the great room upstairs is the upstairs master ensuite with full bathroom, king size bed and flat screen TV. Next to that is a bunk room with twin bunk beds and a flat screen TV that plays DVDs. The open concept living area upstairs has a great room with a gas log fireplace, 50-inch HDTV, sound bar and DVD player. The fully-stocked kitchen has granite countertops, an island and a large farm table. To the right of the great room are two additional sleeping areas with queen beds and a separate bathroom. The upstairs covered deck includes comfortable seating with a couch, chairs and swings to enjoy the sights and sounds of the river below. A dining table with four chairs is also on the deck.

The lower level has a second family room with a sectional sofa arranged around an HDTV, DVD player and shelves filled with DVDs, books and games.
This level has its own dining table and chairs. As well as a master king ensuite with Westin Heavenly mattress, private bath, large walk-in closet, and separate laundry room.

Head outside to the lower level covered patio and the hot tub waits for you! Additionally, the patio which stretches the entire front of the house includes an additional table and four chairs. Enjoy a barbecue with family! The gas grill is located out here as well.

A large, gently sloping yard leads from the home down to the Watauga River across the street. Enjoy 75 feet of private frontage on the Watauga River, known throughout the region for its wonderful fly fishing, by taking a short walk down the private access to the river directly in front of the home. It is shallow and gentle enough so young children can splash and play, and after a heavy rain you can take a leisurely tube trip from several locations including from near the Mast General Store nearby. Resin Adirondack chairs are also provided so you can comfortably enjoy the riverside.

The home is conveniently located in the peaceful and picturesque community of Valle Crucis, five minutes from the original Mast General Store and the Valle Crucis Community Park, and is next door to the private home known as the Baird House, the oldest residence in Watauga County. Valle Crucis is close to many High Country areas including Boone, Banner Elk, Blowing Rock, Linville and Grandfather Mountain.

The home has plenty of space for all seasons - bring your skis and snow boots in the winter or your rafts, tubes and fishing gear in the summer!

"This house was extremely well stocked with linens, towels, and especially kitchen utensils, dishes and cookware. There was plenty of room for 2 kids and 5 adults. The view was lovely, with a nice firepit in the front yard. But it hadn't been thoroughly cleaned recently, the front door keypad was temperamental (deadbolt doesn't line up just right) and the washing machine didn't work right. A maintenance man did come after we called our last day and hopefully made the repairs."

Blue Ridge Rentals did a great job keeping us informed about the rental, how to get in, use the hot tub, etc. They even brought us a new coffee maker when they learned the carafe of the one in the rental was cracked and leaked. It was a terrific getaway at a reasonable price! The location was central to the towns and places we wanted to see and things we wanted to do."

"We ended up renting Riverdream due to a late cancellation of the property we had rented on the Gulf Coast with only a month notice. We were unable to find a comparable beach property, so we shifted our search to the mountains of North Carolina. The property offered a large front porch facing the Watauga River, 5 bedrooms, and appeared to be very spacious (with an en suite for my wife and I to “get away” from everyone else). I can say that Riverdream delivered on all the expectations. Every morning I came up from the en suite to the main floor, we'd spend some time sitting on the front porch and enjoy the sounds from the river. The property is pretty quiet, with the occasional car going by, but mostly just natural sounds to listen to during the day. The bedrooms are comfortable and there are 5 TV's in the house. There are at least 2 DVD players and a large collection of movies to choose from (in addition to the cable/satellite system). There's also a good collection of books available to read at the house. WiFi was good and consistent. There's a second (somewhat noisy) fridge on the ground floor near the en suite in the family room that was convenient when we were downstairs. The sectional was comfortable and a nice place to relax after a long day. As far as location, the property is about 3 miles from the Mast General Store along a windy road that follows the river. It was probably another 15-20 minutes from there into Boone. We thought it was reasonably convenient to the surrounding communities like Banner Elk and Blowing Rock. We did a few trips away from the house, but spent a fair amount of time around the house, cooking meals and visiting with family (we came from 3 different states to vacation together). I'd recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a quiet getaway with a larger family or group of friends."

"This house was a perfect spot for a family getaway. We had rain one day, and the 2 living spaces were perfect for movie watching downstairs and meals and gabfest upstairs. The location on the river was absolutely perfect. The sound of the water was so calming. The river is perfect to wade in and practice your fly fishing, which we did! The house was clean and outfitted with fluffy towels and cozy linens and throws for reading on the covered porch overlooking the lawn and river. The view of the Baird House nextdoor, the oldest house in the county, was an extra treat. All in all, this spot was lovely and we'd definitely return."

"We stayed at Riverdream in Sugar Grove for our weekend trip to Hawks Nest. Riverdream is a 5 bedroom house with beautiful view of the Watauga River just on the other side of the street. The house was large, nicely furnished, with everything we needed, including the (very hot) hot tub and all the small appliances we needed. There was even a generous supply of things we didn't expect (and don't get) in our timeshares, such as aluminum foil and baggies, plenty of dishes and glassware, including wine glasses. We were also pleasantly surprised that there was a large selection of books, DVDs, and games to keep everyone occupied at night. We will definitely stay here again."

"This house was perfect for our family including 2 grandparents. They layout couldn't have been better to allow for social distancing of our older, more susceptible to Covid, family members (they sleep on the bottom floor where they had an easily accessible 1 step entrance. The rest of the family had ample space in the clean and well stocked 2nd floor. The teenagers used the hot tub, everyone enjoyed the fire pit and evenings stargazing. The river just in front of the house was serene. I love to explore new places to stay when we visit the mountains but this house is a keeper! We did have an issue with the hot water heater (it didn't work) but the management company had it repaired the same day that I let them know! Great, quick service that didn't disrupt our stay at all."

"This home was so perfect for our two families, I just cannot imagine it being any more perfect! The road in front is quiet and has very little traffic. The river is right there! You can almost check the conditions right from the front porch. Inside, the beds were comfy - my picky sister had the master bedroom on the main level and she RAVED about the mattress. My niece loved her bedroom on the other side of the main level, and my husband and I enjoyed our privacy downstairs in the master suite. There is a door at the top of the stairs, separating the levels, which made for very quiet mornings for everyone. We brought our coffee maker and set it up downstairs and had our own, private coffee station in the morning. No need to go upstairs and wake anyone! The house is stocked with everything you could possibly need - kitchen and entertainment. There is a wall of books, videos and board games! My husband loved being able to walk outside first thing in the morning and wade into the river. He even caught a small trout! We will back."
