River Ridge Retreat is a beautiful 4-bed 3-bath home on 1.3 wooded acres in the private River Ridge community just 6 mi from Boone. This warm and inviting house sits on a ridge above the New River, which provides great mountain views from the deck and from inside the home through a soaring wall of windows. The home offers multiple living and entertaining options, and has beds for 10 adults. A short 4 minute walk takes you to a river access where you can fish, play, and tube in the New River.

The space
April update: The master loft bedroom now has grand 9-ft french doors that allow you to close off the bedroom from the great room below, or open the doors wide for a loft feel.

The main floor boasts an open concept floor plan with high ceilings and an expansive wall of windows. Enjoy the natural light and nature’s beauty while you are cooking in the kitchen, sitting down to eat with friends or family, or relaxing on one of the cozy couches. The living room space has a beautiful stone fireplace with easy-to-use gas logs and a smart TV. The kitchen has everything you need whether you are cooking a romantic dinner for two or a meal for ten, including granite countertops, dishwasher, drip coffee pot and Keurig (with coffee supplied), ample storage for food, and more. Also on the main floor is a full bath and two bedrooms, one with a queen bed and one with a queen bed and a set of bunk beds.

Just outside the kitchen is a wrap-around deck that brings you a step closer to the views visible from inside the home. Enjoy cooking on the stainless-steel grill, having lunch on the table, or simply relaxing in one of the four Adirondack chairs. Take the lid off the table and turn on the propane fire in the middle to keep warm on chilly evenings. The deck has a latched gate at the top of the stairs to make it safe for young kids.

Head upstairs to the master bedroom. This majestic space is one of our favorite parts of the home. It has a king bed, private bath with jacuzzi soaking tub and shower, walk-in closet, and a private balcony. The 9-ft tall glass french doors can both be opened wide to connect the bedroom to the great room below, or closed and covered with blackout curtains for peace and quiet. When morning comes, you can start your day with views of nature without getting out of bed. Hidden in the wardrobe is a smart TV. Do not miss the cute bistro table on the loft’s edge for a date night , your morning coffee, or day in your vacation home office with a great view

The bottom floor has an additional living and entertaining space, with a regulation size pool table, 58” smart TV with surround sound, gas fireplace, and a table for games, puzzles, or office workstation. The many windows create a bright and inviting space. The cozy bedroom on this floor has a queen bed with a closet and is perfect for those that want a little more privacy. In addition to the full bath, there is also a laundry room with a washer and dryer for the guests’ convenience.

The River Ridge community provides walkable roads and two river access points, one of which is less than a quarter of a mile from our home, next to a bridge over the river. There is a path down the bank for access to the river where you can fish or tube on your own. There are three expedition companies within a 5- to 10-minute drive from the house that will provide everything you need for a tubing, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, biking, or hiking experience.
