Our office opens for check-ins starting at 3 pm-please allow us until that time to get the rooms clean! The only way to check-in early is to reserve the room for the night before, this ensures it is empty and clean for you. Please let us know you wish to do this so we don't assume you are a no-show on the first night!
Please make sure you read and understand the cancellation policy before booking with us - give us a call if you have questions about this policy. We are a small property and simply can't afford empty & unpaid rooms due to last minute cancellations, so the policy is firm.
All guests have access to our river deck, which has tables and chairs and charcoal grills available for your enjoyment.
Each unit has a mini-fridge, microwave, and 4 cup coffee-maker. Hotel rooms are equipped with flat screen televisions with DISH channels, and the property has free WIFI for everyone. All of our rooms have a bathroom with a shower but 4 rooms also have a bathtub; please call us before making a reservation if you require a tub so that we can ensure you get scheduled in a correct room.
Animals other than ADA certified Service Animals are not allowed in our motel rooms. Service animals are trained to perform tasks for an individual that they can't perform for themselves. Emotional support animals are not service animals and are therefore not allowed in our rooms!
One bed: Rooms offer one king bed, some offer a river view and some do not; please choose the correct room type when booking!
Two beds: We offer standard rooms with 2 double beds, family rooms with 1 queen bed and 1 double bed, and one king suite with 1 king bed and a couch OR a second bed that is queen sized. All of these rooms do offer a river view.

It also includes a kitchenette with a small fridge, microwave, toaster, stove-top and basic cookware and dishes. All cookware and dishes must be left clean and put away upon check-out, or an additional $25 cleaning fee can be paid and we will do the extra cleaning for you. The cabin is small and cozy and is recommended for 2 people only, however, the loveseat does fold out to a full sized bed if needed.

It is 2 stories; upstairs has a king bed with comfy chairs and a television, along with a kitchen and a table and chairs. Downstairs offers a queen bed, bathroom, and a couch with a television. The couch will fold out to a queen sized bed if needed, allowing you to sleep a family of 6. The cottage has a covered table and chairs and a charcoal grill out back facing the river.
"We spent 2 nights here on vacation and it was amazing! Small and intimate and right on the river. Chairs set up outside so you can sit and enjoy nature at it's best! We will definitely stay here again!"

"We stayed at the Riverbend Lodging for 6 nights in July. The lodging is very close to downtown Bryson City with convenient access to many desirable locations. The lodging is on the banks of the river with seating on a deck on the river bank. The accommodations were clean and comfortable."
“It is a small hotel located right on the river of Bryson City. The room was really nice and spacious and the owners were fantastic. They gave great suggestions on food to eat and things to do in the area. The views of the river were also amazing!”
