About the property

Seclusion on the Toe River. Swim, fish, outside the front door.

NOTE: AWD or 4WD vehicles are required to rent this cabin.

Fish, swim, river tube, hike, seclusion on a gorgeous stretch of the Toe River, right outside the front door, literally! It is obvious the moment you walk in the door how much the owners love this special place. It boasts comfort and charm throughout.

The highlight of this special cabin is its location on the Toe River. You simply can't get any better than this. You could actually toss a stone from the front porch and hit water. Over hanging the river is a large deck. A unique feature along the river. Adult guests can relax or fish right off the deck while kids swim in the deep swim hole immediately below, or river tube. There are two tubes available at the house for guest use, but there are also tubes available to rent for the duration of your stay for a nominal fee. The riverside deck provides a convenient spot to rest river toys when not in use rather than lugging back and forth to the house. There's even a outdoor hot shower!

At the end of a day filled playing in the water, hiking around the property and/or in the hills, sit around a roaring bon fire (also riverside) sharing the memories of the day while roasting marshmallows.

Again, PLEASE NOTE: AWD or 4WD vehicles are required to rent this cabin. The road to the cabin is gravel and has a slight upward grade. While the grade of the road is not super steep, it is just steep enough that 2WD vehicles tear up the gravel road causing timely and expensive repairs. AWD and 4WD vehicles have no problem whatsoever.

Riverdance is conveniently located between the quaint mountain down town areas of Burnsville and Spruce Pine. Both offer dining, shopping and convenience to many adventurous mountain activities you're coming to the mountains to enjoy. The entrance to the Blue Ridge Parkway is approximately 15 minutes from Riverdance and boasts THE most amazing long range views east of the Mississippi River. In fact, Burnsville is home to Mt. Mitchell, which has the highest elevation this side of the Rocky Mountains 6000 ft above sea level. Climb the lookout platform and you have 360 degrees views that stretch for miles. Hiking, commercial river rafting, horseback riding, zip lining, Crabtree Falls, Linville Falls and caverns, Grandfather Mountain, the Altapass Apple Orchard are all no more than 10 minutes to an hours drive. Asheville, home of the infamous Biltmore Estate is approximately an hour away. Contact me to send you web links to any of the above or other activities of interest perhaps not mentioned above.

NOTE: The driveway of this home requires AWD or 4WD. 2WD vehicles would have no problem getting to the house, but would most certainly have issues getting back up the driveway.

Peaceful Cabin by the River

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful property! The cabin had everything we needed right down to the fire-pit wood. Fishing was great anywhere on the South Toe river.

We will book this property again!!

Excellent riverfront cabin

  • 5 of 5

Thanks for the perfect fishing weekend in this secluded cabin on the South Toe River. Accommodations were exactly as described and shown in the pictures. The weather was perfect for fishing as well as all the fish stories by the campfire at night.

Tranquility base on earth

  • 4 of 5

It was a piece of heaven, location is perfect. The river is so beautiful, easily wadable but there are some chest high deep spots. Only one drawback, there isn't a chest of drawers in the entire cabin. Majority of people who go on "outdoor" vacation trips bring folding clothes. This was a solo fishing trip so I was able to manage to live out of the luggage.

A great get away if you love nature

We spent a week here. Peaceful

I do not want to share this place.

  • 5 of 5

I am actually already regretting giving this place a 5 star rating because I don't want anyone else to find this little slice of heaven. It was legitimately the best weekend of our lives and we completely relaxed the second we arrived. It was everything that was promised and more. Can't wait to book again soon and eventually own a little piece of property myself to mimic this exact place!

Hidden gem by the river!

  • 5 of 5

Riverdance cabin was a great weekend get away! The property manager was super responsive and helpful from the very beginning. We took our dog and kayak and spent a lot of time on the river and hiking. This is a great place to unwind and relax.
