Much, much more than a North Carolina Bed and Breakfast, River House is a full-service country inn on the North Fork of the
New River, near West Jefferson and not far from Boone in the northwest corner of North Carolina.

Nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains, we are far from the bustle of everyday life.


More Than a North Carolina Bed and Breakfast

River House is not only a North Carolina Bed and Breakfast but a Country Inn that's really in the country, on the New River in the Blue Ridge mountains. There's a mile of riverfront for strolling, wading, tubing, canoeing and fishing. Brown trout and rainbows abound. Walking trails wind through 160 acres. Our neighbors include deer, rabbits, wild turkeys, a great blue heron, an occasional bear - just no mosquitoes.

Most of our twelve uniquely decorated guest rooms are converted farm buildings with king-size beds, private bathrooms, Jacuzzis, art, books and country antiques. 

That is reason enough to visit River House but the food is another.  The restaurant offers regional and international cuisine, an excellent wine list, and two full-service bars with all ABC permits.  We are open for dinner Wednesday through Sunday.  The Sunday Salon features live music, hors d'oeuvres and a four-course Chef's choice menu.  A "simple supper" is available on Mondays and Tuesdays for overnight guests.  Reservations are essential.

Breakfast is served in the main house daily between 8:30 and 10:00.  While it is complimentary for overnight guests, many local residents choose to book for private business meetings or simple personal enjoyment. 

On-site lunches or picnic fare may be pre-arranged, a pleasant adjunct when renting our kayaks or canoes.  We will take you up-river so you can take your time floating back to us.

While you are here, visit nearby sites such as New River State Park, Grayson Highlands, Mt. Jefferson and Stone Mountain. Drive the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway. Bike the popular Creeper Trail. Ride horseback at Burnt Hill Stables. Play golf at Mountain Aire Golf Course. Just two miles down the road is Landmark Alpaca Farm and it's only seven  to Phipps Store for incredible Friday night "pickin" (That's music, not pig.). Shop for antiques, art and pottery in West Jefferson as well as in the River House Gallery or Dairy Barn.

But... one of the most popular things to do is absolutely nothing.  Relax in rocking chairs on the front porch or in chaises under the big sycamore tree overlooking the river.

River House is ideal for a romantic stay. And, of course, you can get married here!

We look forward to seeing you soon.

Gayle Winston, Innkeeper
