did not like the strong arm tactics your insurance cronies applied when we had to use the trip insurance to get our deposit back.I was told that not all trip insurance is guaranteed.We will not be using your company in the future. James Travis.
We have stayed at By the River several times. The location is great and the property is superb. This time, however, we had "critter" with us all week in a closet. It took several visits for the maintenance people to address the issue and never really took care of it. A little disappointed we were not offered a discount or a free night return considering the trouble we went through. All in all, a decent stay.
Beautiful setting, great house with everything you need for your

House located on the banks of the New River. Mountains were so beautiful. House well appointed with nice decks fronting on the river. Changes in deck levels need to be marked and lighted, easy to trip and fall. Keep windows facing the road closed to decrease traffic noise. Enjoyed our stay. Property management company was very hospitable and efficient. Would definitely return to this property, nice experience.

The service we received from the rental agency was top notch, very friendly and informative. The cabin was nicely appointed with just about everything you could possibly need or want. The view of the river was just awesome. It was very serene and tranquil. Upon our arrival we noticed how clean and organized the cabin was thus providing us a high level of comfort. My family and I had a great time at the cabin. We absolutely loved it!

We've stayed at your home twice now and have greatly enjoyed each trip. We are already planning on returning this summer as well. Your home is so comfortable and clean and I am very impressed with how well the Kitchen is stocked. It really has everything, which is great for a family like ours who prefers to cook even on vacation. The location is very convenient and the river access is so nice. Thank you so much for renting out your home. It's our new tradition.

The only thing about the cabin wished they had changed was to put in 2 full bathrooms. Met the owner when we were there and expressed that to him and also trying to remedy the driveway situation of getting in and out. Washes very bad.

My wife and I had the most enjoyable, comfortable and relaxing time we have had in quite some time and we look forward to returning soon. We loved the fishing, the kayaking and the occasional tubing groups that floated by. Most of all we enjoyed the beauty of it all.

We had a lovely getaway weekend from april 20-24 this past spring at "By the River".Literally on the banks of the New River in Jefferson NC. We also had our 2 fabulous dogs with us and they loved the swimming! The river was running very fast due to the season. House was simple but just right for a last minute unplanned escape over Easter weekend. Good access to hiking trails, boat rentals and the Blue Ridge Parkway. We will go back again to this cabin for sure!

This trip was a surprise Father's Day Weekend for my husband. The cabin was very well decorated and equipped with all the necessities inside and out. The bedrooms were very comfortable and clean! However, the road noise was a bit unexpected and disturbing at night while trying to sleep and outside during the day while fishing and grilling out. But, the fishing for us all was a great experience and made up for the afternoon traffic patterns. Our kids had a blast in the New River splashing around while watching the canoe and tube riders pass by. That was exciting to see as we waved to all whom passed. During the evening, we enjoyed a nice fire in the fire pit and the kids roasted marshmallows and made smores. Overall, the stay was nice and my husband had a great Father's Day Weekend.

Our week at By the River was wonderful. The weather was perfect, the view was fantastic - if only the shower had water pressure. Loved the large rooms and the outdoor features. But there was only one shower stall - no tub and did I mention the terrible water pressure. If you don't need to wash your hair you will love it here!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at By the River. The house was comfortably furnished and had everything anyone would need in the kitchen. The decks allowed us to eat outside every day and to watch the activity on the river. There is one negative that I must mention: We like to walk and couldn't do so safely on the road. Therefore, we'd have to drive into town to walk Otherwise, the location could not have been better. And we were provided with excellent service by Carolina Mountain Properties staff--especially Jennifer..

When we arrived the house was not clean and all the linens were in a pile at the top of the stairs. I had brought my own linens which was a blessing so I did not have to start my vacation doing someone else's laundry. River access was great. Overall house was nice- loved the bathroom upstairs. Would have been great to have a daybed in the hall nook for our 3rd child but we made due.
