Historic Interest

More than 200 years ago, a miner named Meredith Ballou received a land grant of 10,000 acres in just-created Ashe County, North Carolina. The holding, deep in the Blue Ridge Mountains near Virginia and the new state of Tennessee, included the spectacular bowl of Walnut Hill, overlooking the North Fork of the New River. In 1824, Ballou put up the first dwelling on what is now the site of River House.

Romantic Interest

River House is ideal for a romantic stay. And, of course, you can get married here!
