07/07/06 Positive My husband and best friend surprised me with a birthday party and weekend getaway for all my friends. The River House is just amazing. It is So spacious, yet very cozy at the same time. I loved waking up and having my tea on the huge front porch...it is so quiet and very rejuvenating place. We all slept GREAT, all the furnishings, beds, hot tub and fully equipped kitchen were a plus. I especially LOVED the " grotto" style secret shower. What an experience with the rain shower!!!! I'd rent it all over again!
07/06/06 Positive What a wonderful setting and facility for large gatherings of family or friends. The house is cozy and nicely appointed. The lay out is well done and easily accommodates activities or conversations. Shopping, hiking, and horseback riding are splendid.

07/06/06 Positive Our family of four stayed at the Riverfront Dream House in 2006. We went there to be with some friends and had a great reunion. We have two little boys and they thoroughly loved the setting and the freedom to run around in the large yard and woods. We enjoyed being able to sit on the porch and keep track of them while sipping hot chocolate. It was an ideal home for families and friends to gather. There's enough space on the three floors for people to do different things and not bother one another, and then the large dining room table and kitchen bar area made for great group meals
07/06/06 Positive I had a great time staying here earlier in 2006. I came to be with friends that I know from China. We sat for hours staring at the beautiful scenery and river below. The house was warm and fun and a great place to relax and catch-up with old friends. I especially liked the family room fireplace and the cool kitchen. The Dining Room table is gorgeous and has such a wonderful view of everything out the large windows. There's not a place you can look that isn't beautiful
07/06/06 Positive A group of us girls stayed here for a friends 40'th birthday party. We had a blast. The openness of the house and the three stories and two large decks let us spread out and have group conversations and just one on one chats in the various little nooks and crannies. We all enjoyed the hot tub looking out over the river. It was an ideal memory-making time for us girlfriends from the past to gather

07/06/06 Positive We had incredible family reunion here in January 2006. The house was so warm, thanks to the stone fireplace. Though there was snow outside, it was great inside. Our kids loved the large sloping yard as their sledding hill. We especially enjoyed the large kitchen, dining and family room area that all blended into one, so we could talk as family. The kids loved their little log-cabin like bedroom with the three beds. We would definitely return and already have plans to return for two weeks this Fall.
