Vacation Rental in Ashe County NC

Whether you come for a week or just a weekend, you will enjoy fishing, canoeing or tubing the New River from Dove Cottage. Bring your own canoe or kayak or rent one from an area outfitter. Local outfitters are withing a short 10 minute from the cottage. New River State Park is 15 minutes away.

Four inner tubes are also provided but require a $75 security deposit and signing a waiver. Unlike many “riverfront” cabins, our bank slopes gently to the river edge, and boats or tubes can be launched easily.
