Very cozy and beautiful cabin. Loved the views. Overall an amazing place. Having everything you needed was supplied. Love that. Great stay and relaxing. Would love to come back for another stay. Kids enjoyed the games and their own play room…Thank you for opening your home up to us.

I have never seen a better view anywhere. We sat on the porch in the incredibly comfortable rockers and just sucked it in. Everything about the house was fabulous. The kids loved the "camproom" and the playroom and also enjoyed the deer trails. We saw wild turkey just strolling around the yard. The bedrooms were sooo comfortable and we slept with the windows open with the lovely cool mountain air, perfect quiet, and looked out at the night stars throughout the night. What a great place.

What can I say?? The house was just perfect for our vacation. It's beautiful, the view is breathtaking, the home is decorated just beautifully, the kitchen is very well-stocked, it's roomy, yet cozy...it's just awesome!! Our children loved it...especially the game room. Our daughter (8) kept asking if we could come back there? She wants to come every year...me too!! We will definitely be back to this wonderful home in the mountains. We had an absolutely wonderful vacation. The home is just lovely. We enjoyed meals on the porch. We enjoyed nights by the fire outside. It was just wonderful. Thank you for helping to make our vacation so special and memorable!!

There are those who clearly want something a little bit more special than what the typical seasonal rental house offers. Everything about Rhys' River Valley has been carefully thought out for the vacationer's pleasure.

This beautiful home has many extras, from the hand-hewn logs, hand-made rhododendron porch railings, tongue & groove paneled wall and ceilings in every room, stacked-stone wood-burning fireplace, and wormy hardwood floors.

This impressive 2300 square foot log cabin is absolutely beautiful both inside and out. The exterior, what with its log and chinked walls and exposed hand-hewn beams on the fifteen foot high cathedral ceilinged porch, makes for a truly wonderful appearance. The porch has wickerwork rockers, chaise-lounge, a few occasional chairs and a lovely dining area that features an 8’x3’x4” solid polished tree-section table. Its greatest asset though, is one of the most beautiful views in the High Country mountain region. Stand on the porch and look out into the distance or closer in enjoy the river and horse pasture views. Its South-facing perspective ensures a sunny day including impressive sunsets. Depending when you visit, a clear sky will usually be a moonlit one right in front of you. With such rich vegetation on the surrounding 23 acres, your stay will more than likely include a visit by passing deer and wild turkey. So far no sign of any bears!

The interior has also been thoroughly and thoughtfully designed with the comfort and pleasure of the vacationer in mind. Rhys’ River Valley is a spacious home, especially important when more than one family is staying in the home. There are four bedrooms, two with en suite bathrooms and each with a view, decorated in mountain decor with attractive quilts, goose down comforters, upgraded mattresses and interior pine walls – all quite cozy. In total there are four full bathrooms, all with imported tile, cherry cabinets, and the master bathroom has a Whirlpool tub. There are two queen beds, one king, and three single beds for sleeping. There is also a queen sleeper sofa and a roll-away bed for extra guests. The children’s room has a camping theme, with the three beds (two arranged in bunk-bed form) finished in tree bark and the furnishings and trimmings having a distinct outdoors feel.

For entertainment the large playroom has a pool table with ping-pong top plus an air hockey table, along with satellite TV, and video game system. It, too, has a great view from its two sets of double windows.

The upstairs living room is wonderful with its high cathedral ceiling and hand-hewn beams, stacked-stone wood-burning fireplace, wormy hardwood floors and best of all, its two pairs of French doors and floor to ceiling central windows provide a very light and airy feel as well as, of course, the spectacular view. This large and inviting room is the perfect gathering place for the whole family. Cuddle up by the roaring fire or sit at the large dining room table and chat with the chef in the gourmet kitchen featuring cherry cabinets, stainless steel appliances, and unique Penta-Gold granite counter-tops. Basic cooking ingredients are always included in Ashemore homes: sugar, flour, cooking oil and various herbs & spices.

Outside there is a large hot tub in a private setting which commands the view and night sky – just try to count all the stars on a clear night! This is the perfect place for solitude and peace. To the front, there is one-half acre of grassy flat land including a few shade trees (remember, it’s South facing) that support a few swings and other playground features for the kids. This house has it all and mere words will not do it justice. Within a short drive or hike is the Watauga River for fishing, tubing or playing in the water. Two popular swimming holes are also located approximately ten minutes down the main road for summer fun!

 Rhys' River Valley has convenient paved access all the way to its private drive.

If you are planning a larger gathering, consider adding the only other house on the same 23 acre tract, the recently renovated Ashemount.

Depending on the home, 4WD, chains or sometimes both may be required when visiting the mountains in winter. Access to this home may not be suitable for vehicles with rear wheel drive, limited ground clearance, or motorcycles even during summer months.  We are happy to help you find the home with the access you are most comfortable with, any time of year!

This house sits on, or near, Watauga River Road, one of the most beautiful stretches of road in the entire High Country. As the name implies, for the most part it parallels the Watauga River and as such meanders through a valley of trees, dramatic rock formation, pastureland and a few historical buildings. It is simply breathtaking. It is 90% fine gravel, so traction and progress is not thwarted by rough terrain. It is possible to set off on a Sunday morning and not encounter 1 car in an hour! Perfect for runners, walkers and cyclists.

    The Rhys' River Valley cabin was a relaxing getaway for our family vacation. We were pleasantly surprised how convenient it was to get to from Boone, yet it seemed to be in its own world. The view from the cabin included distant green pasture land, forest covered mountains, and the winding river. We spent much of our time on the deck chairs absorbing the scenery and sounds. A hummingbird visited a couple times to some cut flowers we had on the deck and we also saw an indigo bunting perched on a nearby tree. We cooked together in the modern kitchen and then enjoyed it while still getting the full panoramic view. The furniture was extremely comfortable, so much that, during one afternoon, I fell asleep on the deck while my wife napped in the living room. The bedroom décor was welcoming and the beds so comfortable it was tempting to sleep in a bit. One morning the fog rolled in across the valley, which was fun to watch it give way to the sunshine. In the evening we talked, read, and also played pool and ping pong, which brought back some nice memories. The hot tub was a special hit for our daughter where she spent much time floating about. We will cherish the memories from this vacation.

The kids loved roaming around and the firepit outside is a nice bonus. We did not use the hot tub, but it was there to use (don't forget your swimsuits like we did). If you are coming in the cold months you definitely want to use a 4 x 4. You "could" make it up there without, but it wouldn't be much fun. The location is great if you want to be secluded.

    This home worked out well for us for our short 5-day visit to the Boone area. The house was well-maintained and clean and the kitchen was well stocked with essentials. LOVED the back porch with the great mountain views and liked that the home was not far from the places we selected for our fun times with our grandkids at Sky Valley Zip Tours and Tweetsie Railroad. The kids loved the hot tub and the kids play area in the yard.

    Four winters ago, we stayed at another BRVC location, New River Ramble, and it was a truly wonderful experience. Our kids got to see snow for the very first time, and the cabin was fabulous. This time around we wanted a more majestic view, so we booked Rhys' River Valley at the last minute when snow was forecast for the following week. Of course that kind of view comes at a price and the nice folks at BRVC strongly recommended we use a 4WD vehicle. I thought tire chains on our minivan would suffice, but I was wrong. BRVC came to our rescue and got us up the steep, winding, snow-packed driveway. Later in the week, after the snow melted, our Honda Odyssey made it up to the cabin without issue, but if you're planning a winter trip to Rhys' River Valley, do yourself a favor and take a 4WD vehicle!Accessibility issues aside, we could not have asked for a better cabin. It is the perfect mix of rustic charm and modern amenities. And the view! Oh, the view! Such a magnificent setting. There is a small hill in the backyard, so the kids didn't have to go far to enjoy sledding. Many snowmen were built and lots of hot chocolate drank that week. The location in Sugar Grove is convenient to Boone and the surrounding attractions like the Mast General Store and Doc's Rocks. After two "snow" trips, our next North Carolina vacation will likely be during the summer to enjoy all the seasonal activities not available during the winter. We look forward to canoeing and hiking. Regardless, of what we do or when we go, we will definitely stay in a BRVC cabin!

    The pictures of this house do not do it justice!! It is just stunning. We loved every minute of it, even when it rained because we could sit on the porch- or even in the living room- and see the clouds trail up from the valley just like smoke- guess thats why it it called the Smokey Mountains. Lovely house, recommend highly.

    Thank you so much for putting us in Rhys River View house. Please excuse my poor manners for not contacting you immediately to let you know how thrilled we were with the house. We were just too busy...relaxing, soaking in the hot tub, watching the sun burn off the "smoke" from the mountains, star gazing (we could see the milky way), and spotting deer and wild turkey.We also made full use of so many of the local attractions. We went to Grandfather trout pond (wow!!!), the orchard at alta pass (I think that I am a little old to pick apples on a mountain side, tough work but I can say I did it.) , the Blue Ridge Parkway, the Mast General Store, and emerald mining (Rio Doce) in Little Switzerland. Please let your renters know about Rio Doce. Jerry Call is a world class gemologist and will cut one free stone per bucket. Over the years he has cut many stones for me. This time he is cutting two garnets and a lemon citrine. In the past I have gotten smokey quartz and amethyst.I wish that we could have eaten at some of the restaurants that you recommended. Our night vision is too poor to drive on your mountain roads at night! Thank goodness the house had such a gourmet kitchen!Thanks again!

    We have stayed at at this house and each time it gets better. It is hard to talk about anything except the view as it is so prevelant; the whole of the living room, dining room, and kitchen face the full glory of the long-range view and the valley below, from every bedroom the view is great, the playroom has a different long range view, and the hot tub is different still. Yet, the house itself is incredible. So many little touches to make it homey and comfortable, and such wonderful decor.

    This place is absolutely awesome! Our family and our friends rented this house and Glory Mt. and we could walk to see each other. At night, we would go to the firepit at the other house and the kids ran all around the FLAT ground, and totally entertained themsleves with all there was to do.I will definatly plan our family vacation here next year and would LOVE to see the fall leaves from this house. Fantastic VIEW!!! Fantastic Furniture!! GREAT HOUSE. A++++++++++++

    Absolutely lovely. Great home for two families to share. We loved the more remote location, the acres to explore and the river. A bit unnerving to travel up and down in icy conditions, but nonetheless spectacular. Both the curb appeal and the interiors were impeccable.

    We had such a good time up there in August. We did not want to go anywhere except sit on the deck. The view is awesome!!! I cannot remember ever seeing the Milky Way so clearly. We had 10 people with us and every day was an adventure into mountain living. The hot tub, the view, the tubing, the hiking and we even say baby wild turkey and the deer came right up to the house. We were so sorry to leave and will definatly come back with our group in October. Absolutely wonderful!!!!

    I have never seen a better view anywhere. We sat on the porch in the incredibly comfortable rockers and just sucked it in. Everything about the house was fabulous. The kids loved the "camproom" and the playroom and also enjoyed the deer trails. We saw wild turkey just strolling around the yard. The bedrooms were sooo comfortable and we slept with the windows open with the lovely cool mountain air, perfect quiet, and looked out at the night stars throughout the night. What a great place.

    This weekend get-a-way spot is worth multiple trips!We concur our experience was delightful. In addition to all the wonderful comments about the firepit, cabins, and playareas, the hottub is a hidden oasis if you are an early morning riser.Imagine a quiet morning workout with the luxury of the hottub as your chaser! You can expect a steaming soak in the early morning while taking in the breathtaking view of the rising sun cascading the distant mountain tops.What's left to say, it was exquisit!p.s. We recommend a hearty supply of glow sticks to add to fun. - Kent and Kim, Blacksburg, VA

    NC in itself is incredible. The people are so nice and the scenery is beautiful. The rental company could not have been nicer or more helpful. We really appreciate it very much.The house- ah, the house!!! We just loved this. We had all our meals on the deck, we walked around the deer trails and saw so many eating the apples from the tree. We walked to the river and took the tubes for a float- very cold but wonderful! We walked the bikes over to the river road and went for miles on that trip. The scenery was breath taking. The house was so warm and decorated so lovely. We loved it and would recommend it to anyone, anytime. A fabulous vacation. Next time we come to the USA we will definately stay here.
