I highly recommend this venue! This place is beyond beautiful, has the best views of the mountains and river, and truly has the most caring and attentive owner. Joanne takes such genuine care and detail of everything. The love she created this breathtaking venue with shows through every detail. She is an amazing host and we will always cherish the Appalachian Lodge at Rivers Bend. All of my guests were raving about the beauty of this venue. I highly recommend!!
