This lovely old home is in an older district and the home is older but very artistically designed. Clean and well stocked with everything you may need. I'm stayed in the southwest room which was small but cozy. River is very clear and helpful. I appreciated his dinner recommendation which was very close to his home. No other guests while I was there for the night, and river stayed elsewhere so the home was all mine. I would recommend this to many people I know.

On vacation in the Blue Ridge Mountains, we had one wonderful overnight stay at River's place. We booked on a short note and the communication was perfect. It is a charming, artistically decorated and well equipped house in a beautiful and quiet area. There's a very good restaurant (The Wildflour) nearby. We would definitely stay again!

River's home is cozy, clean, comfortable, and eclectically furnished. Downtown is just a short drive away. It was the perfect place to stay while my boyfriend and I checked out Roanoke. I highly recommend River's house. And though we never had the pleasure of meeting our host, all communication was clear and accurate.

Beautiful small home located in a quiet historic district of Roanoke. Great walking distance to downtown and the Roanoke Greenway Trails. River provided a lovely place for us to just hang out after being out and about all day. I've already recommended his place to friends!

River User ProfileRiver is a superhost.

I'm a transplant from London and have lived in wonderful Roanoke, VA for several years. I ride a bicycle, enjoy the company of friends, make very short films, construct songs, take part in experiments, train a little in fighting, watch birds, and dig up weeds. I have a PR agency, engaging in creative action

I participated in the Airbnb community as a guest for a few years and then started hosting. Hosting's been a terrific experience - so many interesting and warm people, and from such varied walks of life. I hope we get to meet sometime!
