This place is amazing! As soon as you pull up you can tell it’s special. My dog loved swimming and I’m coming back asap. Easy directions to get here and stunning land.
We came today to celebrate one of our dogs recovering from cancer surgery. We had a wonderful time despite the weather be big grey and rainy. The spot is easy to find, well situated, the perfect spot if you and your pups like water. Plenty of chairs and benches for the humans and so much space for the dogs! We will 100% be back and are just very sad we only just found it this late in the summer!
Second visit and we love this place to run, sniff, and swim. Brought another dog friend today and they had a great time on the river
This spot on the Nolichuky River is amazing! So thankful to be able to spend a 4 hours in a beautiful peaceful place with our dogs. We have a senior girl almost 16yo and she’s always loved water and hiking so to be able to hang out and swim with her within worrying about anything was a dream. Our young little girl super loved running in the field and wading around the water too! Melanie left water and basket of things you may need while visiting which is very thoughtful. The spot is clean and gorgeous. We’ll be back! Thank you Melanie for sharing your beautiful River front with dog lovers 💛
Amazing space!! My dog had the best time :) bug spray is provided which is really nice
Riverfront Field is such a great place to run and swim. Melanie is a very welcoming and helpful person. They have treats, bug spray, chairs, picnic tables, and such available. Water is slow moving in this location so it easy for the dogs to retrieve from the water. Grasses and woods to sniff about. We will be back for sure.
This is our favorite place to spend the afternoon! Melanie is a great host, and the field and river access at this spot give all 3 of our dogs plenty of room to run, swim and sniff. Always looking forward to our next visit!
Great spot!! Our dogs were in heaven, and I think we were too! Loved it and will be back!
This was paradise for dogs and people! This was our first sniff spot experience and couldn’t ask for a better one! Melanie was super nice, helpful and very responsive to my questions and when we arrived we briefly met her husband who was so kind and we could tell was also an absolute dog lover!
Our pups are somewhat reactive towards other dogs and they were kind enough to reassure us that their pup would be inside while we were there.
When you pull in you are surrounded by a beautiful river and mountain scenery and our hosts graciously left a basket with dog treats, dog bags, a towel to dry the pups, bug spray and even some snacks for the humans. Our dogs LOVED it and so did we! Such a little slice of heaven and was worth the 2 hour drive to get here! We will be back :)
Absolutely incredible! Host was communicative and property was perfect for my dogs. Will absolutely be back.
This place is amazing! We made the drive from asheville and it was so worth it. We will definitely be back! Melanie provides chairs, a hammock, and little extras you may need, like bug spray and sunscreen. There are picnic tables as well. My dog loved exploring the grassy area as well as cooling off in the river. Beautiful spot!
We always have a wonderful time at Melanie’s spot. The labs love playing in the river and our oldest dog loves sniffing through the trees. A cool spot to hang out for the humans too! Melanie is great at communicating and so welcoming. Can’t wait to visit again!
This was our first ever Sniffspot and boy, did Melanie set the bar high!! Gorgeous, clean & serene! There were even some human amenities provided (bug spray, for example) that made the stay particularly enjoyable. If you’re traveling through (or lucky enough to live close by) definitely enjoy this spot with your four-legged friend!
Awesome AGAIN 💯
Your dogs will love this place
Melanie was wonderful.
Even had a basket of essentials waiting for us.
An awesome piece of property. Big enough to wear my Husky out
We will definitely be returning regularly
I highly recommend this place but try to keep it a secret for as long as possible...lol
We love this spot along the river! It’s our fourth visit here and everyone enjoyed the afternoon, as always. Melanie has thought of a lot of special touches for the dogs and their people - there was even a freshly cleaned hammock for us to relax in while the dogs explored! The river access has something for each of our dogs - the perfect swimming areas for our young lab, a lovely shallow entry beach area for our older lab to wade, and lots of river bank and woods for our oldest dog to explore. Can’t wait to visit again!
Our dogs always have the best time here- the water is amazing and the perfect place to get all their energy out!
Clean, beautiful, spacious area and kind hosts. 100% plan on visiting again my dogs had a blast and so did I!
Awesome as always. This was our third visit and our dogs had so much fun, just like the first two visits. Melanie is an excellent host and even had a basket of various dog and human items we might have needed during our visit. Such a thoughtful touch. Looking forward to our next visit to the river spot!
Amazing property! Super responsive host. We will be back. Loved everything about it. Pups were super happy and slept the whole way home!
Our second timing visiting this awesome spot on the river. Such a great place for the dogs to swim and run! Our 3 love the mix of open grassy area, trees, and, of course, the river. The river access here is excellent for dogs. It offers shallower areas for wading and deeper spots for swimming. Melanie was easy to communicate with and even came out to meet us when we first arrived - she was super welcoming and gave us a great overview of the space. Highly recommend this Sniffspot!
This was our first time using Sniffspot and it was such a great experience. Melanie was great to communicate with and gave us detailed directions to the site. The field and river access were even better than described. Our 3 dogs had a blast playing in the river and there was a nice beachy area for us to hang out on. We had fun exploring the treed area too. All around just the best spot for a perfect dog afternoon. Can’t wait to go back!
This place is amazing! We drove out from Asheville and it was so worth the drive. There’s a beautiful beach area with calm water for the pups to swim and sand for them to run and dig. The host brought out a little welcome basket with dog treats, water, poop bags, sun screen, bug spray and a towel. We will definitely be returning our dogs had a blast.
So much fun and Melanie is a wonderful host!! We had so much fun in the sun and our dogs loved playing in the river. Melanie made sure we were comfortable and had supplies and doggie treats ready for us. Thank you so much!
A little slice of doggie paradise! The property is extremely well-maintained and the river is perfect for swimming. Melanie was very kind and attentive, making sure we had everything we could possibly need! The dogs had an amazing experience, and we’re very grateful for the opportunity to use the space!
Wonderful spot for a swim by the river. Very helpful host!
The property is a dog paradise! Our pup ran, played in the river, and dug holes in the sand. Melanie was also helpful in directing us where to go, and our dog Ruby liked her so much she tried to follow her home. Sorry Ruby you're stuck with us! Highly recommended, I hope we can go back soon!
Truly my dog’s favorite place to be!
Love this place! Private, river, shade trees, plenty of grass and forest… it’s a win, and we’ll definitely be back! Levi (our lab) is also a fan :).
This place was INCREDIBLE! We could not have asked for more! Host was available, responsive, and gracious. The property was absolutely gorgeous! Beautiful river, some bald eagle sightings, lawn chairs for relaxing on the beach, plenty of space for the dogs to run. Truly a little slice of heaven! We drove an hour to get there and it was more than worth it. We are already planning our return!
We had a great time running around and playing in the water. Definitely a place we will be visiting again. The host was very friendly and welcoming.
We really enjoyed a place to let our lab run leash-free AND play in the water! Super easy to book and find and was a fun trip for us all (2 dogs & daughter). I know we weren’t even able to explore 1/4 of the property, and the river had recently been very high, so quite a bit of debris. In all, we loved it and will be back to explore some more!
We loved this place! My dog and kids had a wonderful time playing in the sand and the water. It is beautiful and quiet. The owner is very friendly. We will definitely be returning!
