    The Lodge at River Run is an absolutely beautiful inn. We were so excited to see it after finding this gem online and it exceeded our expectations! The location was great and easy to locate. Upon arriving, we were greeted with the amazing setting and sounds of the river. Entering through the front door, we got our first glimpse at a truly stunning mountain home. The attention to every detail was astounding. Our room, Mountain Laurel, was spacious, lovely, well appointed, and very comfortable. We loved that this room was on the bottom floor with a walkout to the gorgeous patio area and river. The outdoor spaces and large property along the Elk River are breathtaking and totally relaxing. There is so much room to roam and so many great places to sit and enjoy all the nature around you, that we really felt like we had the place all to ourselves! The breakfast at the lodge is not to be missed. It is a true culinary experience and absolutely delicious each day. Also, the coffee is great too! Last, but certainly not least, is the staff. Bobbie, the Inn Keeper, is first rate and an true delight to meet. She does an amazing job of running everything and above all, makes you feel at home. The ladies that assisted Bobbie were all so kind and served us like a king and queen. We did not see anyone taking care of the immaculate grounds, but they too do a fantastic job!! We will most definitely return to this slice of paradise.

    The property is beautiful and incredibly relaxing. An ideal bed and breakfast. The location is directly on a flowing river which is incredibly hypnotic. The best part of all is Ms. Bobbie. She’s just wonderful and can’t do enough to make sure your stay is perfect.

    This property was a cozy, mountain haven. There were tons of amenities and the owner was really helpful and made a wonderful breakfast. Highly recommend Renting multiple rooms with a group as there are amazing common areas that would be so fun to enjoy with friends or family.

    Best Bed and Breakfast Ever!

    We have stayed at this bed and breakfast a few times and it never disappoints. The innkeeper, Bobbie, is so personable and makes you feel right at home. The rooms are extremely clean and very comfortable. The breakfast is amazing. I cannot say enough good things and I would highly recommend.
