Best Western Plus River Escape Inn & Suites, Dillsboro, N.C.

Best Best Western we ever stayed at. Fly fishing out the back door, hot breakfasts, very friendly and helpful staff, and comfortable beds!

American Press Travel News-April 26th-Dillsboro, N.C.-“Bob & Barb On the Road Again”  and “Stopping to Smell the Roses & the trout.” We found out first hand why this Best Western Plus has so many great reviews. We are now one of them, too! With close up views, just feet away from, & on the trout infested Tuckasegee River, and great Smokey Mountain views, we enjoyed everything about this great country hotel. The price is right, the staff were extremely friendly (even got my lost cell phone back to me by mail from Josh) the pool was great, the included hot breakfast was as good as it gets from any hotel, the parking was most convenient. We sure enjoyed those fresh cookies and hot coffee anytime, as we headed to and from our room every day. Rooms have premium channels, the view and sound of the river off the rear of our suite was a treat to remember. I was even able to stretch a fly line on the river, just behind our accommodations  (see the pics of that episode) and then headed to the cute little city of Dillsboro, for a great dinner at Kostas and the next night at Haywood Smokehouse too! So many rivers and streams in this area, which includes the delightful city of Silva, loaded with great shops such as antiques, gift and country home decor businesses. Every one of these shops had delightful owners and shopkeepers that we met. Of special note, we really enjoyed, or should we say our “sweet teeth” loved Dillsboro Chocolate Factory. Is this area recommended?  Very highly, especially if you like to fish for trout!  Contact the hotel direct at: 828-586-6060 Their website is bwriverscape.com  or you can call their reservation number 800-528-1234.

Barb and I loved living just off the Tuckasegee River. Quite peaceful eating the Best Western hot breakfast overlooking this great trout river.

Bavarian Inn In ShepardsTown, W. VA Quiet Elegance, Great European and American Contemporary Dishes

Greystone Mansion originally built as a residence, now the main building and restaurant of the new Bavarian Inn.

AmericanPressTravelNews -Shepardstown, WV.-“Bob & Barb On the Road Again.” & “stopping to Smell the Roses.” We stopped over to the Bavarian Inn and WOW! This place offers so much for very reasonable prices. Over looking the Potomac River, near to the new bridge linking W.V. and MD., the first thing we noticed was the heated Infinity Pool.  The landscaping at this Inn is quite exceptional, all manner of lilies of every hue and variety, roses and a total cornucopia of perennials, and annuals set the quiet relaxed mood with the aromas you’d enjoy anywhere! Looking around you feel you are in a little Bavarian Village that the architecture exudes in the spires and European Tudor facia. The Inn was built in 1930 as a private residence. The famous Greystone Mansion was converted in 1962 to a country inn. The award winning Bavarian Inn is owned and hosted by a native born Bavarian from Munich, Asam & his Wife Carrol. Good hospitality and fine cuisine of the old and new continents is paramount to its world renowned success. There are 4-chalets that have 42 elegantly furnished state-rooms with balconies overlooking the Potomac River.  Total rooms today including convention facilities is 72..

Yes, this pool goes over the edge of the hill it sits on, this it is called an “Infinity Pool.” It over- looks the Potomac River and it was heated. We loved it as all the guests here do.
Our room replete with a grand view of the Potomac River and even a automatic gas fireplace. It hit 49-degrees so we used it too early morning!
German themed restaurant replete with all the fixings, wait-staff and Schnitzels!
