BARN HOUSE with River, Goats, Fire Pit, & Hot Tub! – The River's Call Inn

Located in: Flat Rock
NEED A BAA-CATION? Come play with baby miniature goats!

Escape to The River's Call Inn, a one-of-a-kind barn house experience just feet away from the Hungry River, nestled in the stunning Blue Ridge Mountains of Flat Rock, North Carolina. Enjoy playing with the miniature goats, fishing for rainbow trout, and tubing down the river...all while on the property!

ATTENTION: We would like to note that we are still open for business and accepting reservations. We are taking precautions to keep our home extra sanitized, and as always, sparkling clean and with clean white bed linens and washed-every-time duvet covers. If you are going to need to stay cooped up, it might as well be in a beautiful barn house in the country right? :D

*** We have been getting a lot of messages lately asking if we truly are booked through August with the exception of some smaller openings. It's true, the calendar is right! Every now and then an influx of bookings will happen, and a whole month will be completely booked within a matter of days. September through December are excellent months to stay as well, and we hope you book ahead to reserve your preferred days. We are truly grateful for everyone's interest in the barn house and appreciate each one of our guests so much. And please know that we have nothing but love for everyone– regardless of race, religion, political, or sexual preference. Thank you for considering our place to relax, rejuvenate, and make incredible memories!!

Relax and let the river's song sooth your soul from every bit of the 10.5 acre property. Enjoy the pattering of the evening rain on the tin roof, while rockin' away your blues with river-front views on the large old-fashioned covered porch – complete with Adirondack rocking chairs and a delightful moonshine bar. With 734 feet of private river frontage, take an exhilarating dip to cool off, or explore the river bed to hunt for arrowheads or stack rocks. Play a fun-filled game of cornhole, or test your lassoing skills with a lariat and practice steer head. Under a starry-filled night share stories and memories around the fire pit, or join in on an entertaining game of giant black-light Jenga. Escape to the large old-fashioned back porch for a relaxing soak in the hot tub, large enough for five.

Enjoy a 1940's barn renovated into a unique 4 bedroom, 2 bath getaway. Its clean, farmhouse charm creates the perfect home away from home. Downstairs is a family room with sofa bed and two large master suites – each with a queen bed and shared full bathroom. Upstairs has a kitchen w/ island seating, a full bathroom, living room with sofa bed, dining table, and two bedrooms – each with a full-sized bed. Snuggle up into plush white linens, and crack open your window for nature's own river lullaby. Wake up to a cheerful kitchen stocked with all of the comfort amenities of home. Grab a cup of coffee or tea, and take a seat at one of the bistro tables on the upstairs porch for a tree-top view of the river while being serenaded by a morning chorus of birds.

Inside you'll find fun farmhouse decor showcasing barn animals, tasteful lamps, and whitewashed details against crisp, fresh water blue walls. Every bedroom comes with four cushy pillows, an extra blanket, alarm clock, tissues, clothes hangers, trash can, and ceiling fan. Each side of the bed has an end table, lamp, and USB charging port for your phone. A Smart TV is upstairs in the living room with complimentary Netflix and ability to login to other personal streaming accounts. DVD player is provided, as well various movies. Coffee tables lift up for easy dining on each couch. Both the upstairs and downstairs have hair dryers and ironing boards with irons. Shampoo, conditioner, and body wash is supplied, and there are several full-length mirrors. Plush white bath towels are provided, as well large outdoor towels for the river and picnics. Many board games and card games are provided for entertainment. Giant black light Jenga and cornhole is available for outdoor fun, as well as a lasso with practice steer head. Unique moonshine bar on porch provides extra seating and is a terrific backdrop for photos. Fire pit includes eight comfortable adirondack chairs with side tables to easy place your drinks or smores ingredients. Gas grill includes propane and grilling utensils.

The River's Call Inn is on a 10.5 acre park-like setting that includes river frontage, towering trees, and forested mountains. Have fun exploring the grounds! You'll find chickens, a rooster named Elvis, three adorable miniature goats, and two sweet outdoor cats! Depending on the season you'll find blueberries, mulberries, peaches, cone flowers, mint, sage, shiitake mushrooms, morel mushrooms, giant hibiscus, colorful Japanese maple trees, wildflowers and more. Some of the local wild critters include trout, crawfish, fireflies, turtles, wild turkeys, ducks, squirrels, deer, ground hogs, rabbits, and beautiful birds. Keep an eye out for the morning heron by the river. Rare but possible bear, snake, and bob cat sightings as well!
