Fleetwood, NC - This cozy riverside cabin features a glass sunroom for enjoying the quietness of the setting and the water as it flows by just outside your door.

The kitchen/dining combo is equipped with new appliances for easy clean-up after the family meal. The brand new master bedroom suite offers a comfy king-sized bed and electric corner fireplace along with it's own private bath with clawfoot tub, pedestal sink and laundry facilities.

Reviewer Comments:

The cabin was very lovely and peaceful right beside the creek. The kids enjoyed fishing and tubing. We really enjoyed our stay. There were a few things that could have made our stay better. There was a family of raccoons living in the ceiling and we heard them all night long. I called in a reported that to management. They offered to move us- but the whole reason we booked the cabin was to be on the river, so we stuck it out. There was no water running into the master tub. We called and reported that also and was told they couldn’t get a plumber out on weekends. The hot water is very limited. I tried to take a bath in the other bathroom, but only got half a tub of luke warm water- and no only else had used hot water before I tried to take a bath. There is no dishwasher, so bring paper products if you don’t want to spend your time washing dishes. Also know that you have to wash all the linens before you leave. (You can leave one load of laundry for an apartment size washer/dryer combo) anything more- you are charged for.

Owner's Response: Thank you for leaving a review of Down By The River. We are working to correct the issues that you mentioned above. We hope you will stay with us again. UPDATE JUNE 2018: The family of raccoons have been professionally removed and their access point has been sealed so they cannot return. The hot water issue has been corrected as well. If you purchase the optional linen cleaning fee then you do not have to worry about doing any laundry before you leave.

Reviewer Comments:

We had a great time at Down by the River. The house was comfortable and had plenty of space for me, my husband and our two seven year olds. We built a fire each night, made smores, put up hammocks in the trees for our girls, and relaxed by the river.

Reviewer Comments:

Loved, loved, loved this quaint, charming cottage right on the side of the river. Everywhere you looked just oozed comfort, uniqueness, and attention to detail. The place was as described - the original house is dark, you have to pass through one bedroom area upstairs to get to the other, and you can hear the cute donkey across the river braying every so often...all part of the appeal in my opinion. The river water is clean and accessible. We had fun wading around in the chilly water. Boone, the small odd town of Todd, and West Jefferson are nearby. Don't be creeped out by the abandoned trailer at the beginning of the road, when you get to this place you can just relax.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to leave a review of your recent stay at Down By The River. The cabin is located on a country road that is gravel that follows the New River. We are working with the owner to see about updating furniture and adding new lighting. You only paid the basic fees and taxes through our company. There was no add ons. The cabin is located on the New River and offers great river frontage and easy river access. We hope in the future if you have concerns about the pricing you contact us before booking. We look forward to having you stay with us again in the future at another cabin.

Reviewer Comments:

We loved the house and location. Very enjoyable and would love to rent again. Only thing is we will make sure to read EVERY detail of the contract next time. Thought I was about to lose $600 because there was no way someone would have rented it in time if we didn't make it. We also had some trouble getting the TV to work.

The property had a few issues! We call about the outside light and it was not fixed. The TV didn't work it was an old big back and we asked for another TV. One was brought back and was put beside the old one. The Iron didn't work. The owner needs to spend a little money in the house for some upgrades
