Welcome to Rivers Ridge Lodge, an unexpected sanctuary in an extraordinary, rustic setting. With loads to do onsite, let Rivers Ridge Lodge engage your guests of all ages.

The RIVER is actually the Crooked Creek, a branch of the Catawba River. It spans 30-40 feet in width and 1-8 feet in depth. Guests have access to over 3000 feet of river frontage on the property. We have blazed a rough walking trail that closely follows the riverbank for about 1/2 mile at each end. This river walk starts out easy and becomes moderately challenging as it travels upstream. The kids love to search for crawdads, splash in the shallow rapids, dig in the sand and mud on the riverbank, collect rocks and other treasures and generally stay wet! Please fish and grill (minutes out of the water, if you like) Rainbow Trout, Catfish and Bass. Clean up at the outdoor bathhouse near the river. Guests must bring fishing equipment and those ages 16 and older must obtain a regular NC fishing license to fish our waters at Rivers Ridge Lodge. (A youth under the age of 16 accompanied by a properly licensed adult may fish without a license.) We also offer fly fishing instruction upon request. For more detailed information, please visit our FLY FISHING page.

On the PROPERTY, is a large, flat grassy area perfect for sports, a stone fire pit encircled by rustic bench seating, and acres of varied forest terrain to climb and explore. Two air-conditioned bunkhouses (the Arbor Knot and Hornet’s Nest), located within sight of Rivers Ridge Lodge, provide a fun hangout for sleeping, etc.

The DECK offers 5000 square feet of marvelous alfresco space. New in 2011, is a covered gazebo at the far corner of the deck that overhangs the river. The handsome gazebo is ideal for formally exchanging vows or just grabbing some shade. Enjoy the seating for 38 available on the deck with 24 of those seats surrounding circular tables for casual outdoor dining. Relax in the hot tub, sun on the chaise lounge chairs or fire up the gas grill and cook that fish you just pulled from the river.

Indoors, guests find many unique and well-appointed amenities.

The GOURMET KITCHEN’S treasure is its Aga 4 Oven Cookstove, popular in Europe and so versatile when cooking for a crowd. The Aga is a little different so we invite you to visit Aga’s website for more information on how to love this exceptional appliance. Rivers Ridge Lodge also has written information about the Aga and cookbooks onsite to help make the most of your Aga experience. In 2011, we installed an electric convection range. This addition allows us to turn off the Aga during the warmer summer months when most guests still need a cooktop but prefer grilling outside.

The 20’ vaulted GREAT ROOM invites all with its 16’ stone fireplace, gas logs and stylishly comfortable western décor. The adjacent DEN offers a large screen satellite TV, DVD player, book library and board games. It is a great place for the little ones to play while you keep an eye on them, or shut the doors, and create your own reading nook, movie room or nap site.

On the lower level, guests enjoy a very casual THEATRE-BAR and adjoining GAME ROOM. You’ll appreciate another large screen satellite TV, DVD Player and XBOX (with game CD’s). Gas logs keep you cozy and the enormous teak root bar and game room provide great spaces to gather together for hours of fun. Entertain yourselves in the game room at the poker/bumper pool table or regulation pool table. Full laundry facilities, ½ bath, portable phone, stereo system, board games and extra refrigerator are found on this level. Rivers Ridge Lodge also offers free wireless high speed satellite Internet and free long distance phone service to any state in the United States and Canada.

For complete bedroom information, visit our GUEST ROOMS page. Anyone in your party operating at wheelchair level will find easy access to the Kitchen, Great Room, Scuppernong Queen Suite, and deck. The Aspen King Suite and Cherokee King Suite may be accessed in a wheelchair from the deck. The lower level Theatre-Bar and Game Room may be accessed in a wheelchair from the lower driveway or yard. Sorry, there is no elevator to the upstairs bunk rooms.
