Ritz River Review

Everything was great. No problems. Relaxing cabin.

PERFECT retreat with our fur babies

This cabin is the perfect getaway with your fur babies. We had a girls trip (myself and my 4 daughters) and we brought our 4 fur babies (3 Golden Retrievers and 1 mini Aussie) The fenced-in yard was perfect for running off energy and the river was amazing. The pups enjoyed swimming. There was a hose in the fenced-in area for washing the pups before we brought them back into the cabin. Blue Ridge was close and a very dog-friendly town. We loved the hammock and hot tub. Would stay again, for sure. Owner left the sweetest handmade totes for us - so special and very appreciated.

Birthday Weekend

We had a great time at River Ritz, the furniture has a few miles on it but was fine for us. the property is beautiful. We had a little trouble with the Wifi but got it worked out. Our small dogs could escape the yard through the Gazebo steps, we placed some old fence rails found on property on steps to keep pups in yard. We left in a rain storm and forgot to remove the rails, Sorry. We would love to stay here again.

River cabin

This cabin was clean and had beautiful view of River. Loved the covered deck and beautiful flowers around river.

Lovely cabin with great view of river

Perfect rental for someone with children and fur babies. The covered deck and fenced yard were perfect to protect the little ones and the noice of the river was so calming.
