Upstairs has a kitchen w/ island seating, a full bathroom, living room, dining table, and two bedrooms – each with a full-sized bed.

The space
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 playing in the river...all while on the property!

ATTENTION: Hosts are taking precautions to keep home extra sanitized, and as always, sparkling clean and with clean white bed linens and washed-every-time duvet covers. Come and get away from it all in a beautiful barn house in the country! :D

A SIMPLER TIME
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. Play with the adorable miniature goats and then 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 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 Jenga. Then finish the night by escaping to the large old-fashioned back porch for a relaxing soak in the hot tub.

THE SMALL TOUCHES
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 DVD 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 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.

PARK-LIKE SETTING

Other things to note
Q&A:

Refund Policy
Refund policy details are listed before booking. If concerned about possible circumstances affecting your arrival or stay, please consider purchasing travel insurance.

Rates / Additional Guests
Once booked your rates (including price for additional guests) are locked in and subject to the refund policy agreed upon at booking. If you need to add guests (including children), please let hosts know several days before check-in so they can update your reservation and send an additional invoice if applicable. Each person over 4 guests is $25/night per person. Anyone that comes on the property is considered to be a nightly guest booked for the full stay. The maximum number of guests allowed on the property is twelve.

Children
This is a fantastic place for families, but children need to be supervised at all times. Property and home is not child-safe. Extra caution with wildlife, nature, farm animals, stairs, bridge, river, springs, fire pit, hot tub, furniture, and decor. Person who books assumes all responsibility.

Pets
The barn house is pet-free to help keep it clean and hypoallergenic. You will probably see two adorable cats out roaming the grounds - Shino and Miss Marilyn. They love to be petted and held, but please don't invite them inside. They have been loving the great outdoors for over 15 years now! You might also see Mark or Katrina out walking Blu and Jax. Although they are very loving, it is best to admire their cuteness from afar since they are puppies and still learning manners.

Hot Tub
Never leave children unattended. Keep cover on and turn off high jets when not in use. Add water with nearby hose if water level gets below jets. No glass or smoking in hot tub area. Do not jump in hot tub or sit on cover. The hot tub is set at its max. temp. of 104 degrees (which is nice and hot). Please do not turn down below 101 degrees and please turn back up to 104 degrees before check-out. Occasionally it will have fresh water and will temporarily be lower as it heats up again. Guests will be responsible for any extra electricity used due to not putting cover on immediately after use, and responsible for cost of repair/replacement/delivery of hot tub if water gets below the jets.

Smoking
Smoking is allowed in fire pit area and under the covered patio next to sliding door where there is an ashtray. No smoking anywhere else, such as other covered patios, hot tub, in the house, or on balcony. Please keep nearby windows closed and be sure to put butts in ashtrays.

Farm Animals
Visit with the miniature goats anytime during your stay! They love being petted and showing off! A red cup is inside their pen with treats that you can feed them. Please don't feed them anything else as their stomachs are sensitive. Always close the gate to their pasture fast so they don't escape to rest of the property. The goats and chickens sleep in smaller pens at night to protect them from possible predators, but feel free to open it in the morning to let them into their pasture to play. Please do not chase or stress out animals. Children must be supervised at all times.

River
The river that runs along the property is called The Hungry River. On an average day, it is crystal clear and ranges from about 1 to 3 feet deep. During a heavy rain it can quickly rise temporarily. When the river as at a normal height, feel free to play in the swimming hole, stack rocks, and fish for rainbow trout. Please don't take home rocks. Down the driveway by the bridge to the property is a popular spot for local fly fishermen. Any person 16 or older will need a NC fishing license that can be purchased at the N.C. Wildlife website. Along the river you may find beautiful rocks, arrowheads, crawfish, turtles, frogs, rainbow trout, snakes, otters, ground hogs, birds, deer, and more! Enter at your own risk. Rocks can be slippery. No diving or jumping into river – it is too shallow and there are too many rocks. It is best to stay clear of the water when the water is not clear. Please never leave children unattended. No lifeguard on duty. Water shoes can help protect feet. Please pick up all trash and don’t leave items out overnight.

WIFI + LANDLINE
WIFI is included. Connection is usually good but can be slow especially during storms or evenings when everyone is streaming on their devices. Guests have successfully done homeschooling and zoom meetings. Downloading/uploading large files and streaming video games is not recommended.

Fire Pit
Please bring firewood, lighter, and fire starter for your stay. Bundles available at nearby grocery stores and gas stations. Please try and burn up all wood in the firepit by end of stay to help keep it clean and so that wet wood is not left over for next guests.

Grill
The grill has two tanks so that you do not run out of propane. Please let hosts know if you go through the first tank, so they will know to fill it. If you bring your own grill, please do not use under covered porch or inside.

Laundry

There are plenty of extra hooks inside and outside to dry wet clothes and towels from a day of playing in the river. Please bring your own laundry soap for hand washing items if needed.

HOSTS
The hosts are a friendly couple named Mark and Katrina. They have been happily married for 18 years, and are thrilled to now live on their own little slice of heaven. They recently bought this dream property in the summer of 2018. They are excited to grow some green thumbs, and have already started their mini farm with five chickens, and three miniature goats! Hosts' 1920's brick home is approximately 200 feet away from the barn house, mostly hidden behind trees. You might see them out tending to the farm animals or walking their dogs, but they are very respectful of your privacy.
