I booked the cottage to get away for a romantic and quiet weekend for my boyfriend's birthday. The cottage was perfectly decorated, cozy and inviting and the location was fantastic. It was also immaculate. We hiked to the river, took pictures at a couple of the local covered bridges and visited our favorite wineries. It was the perfect get away. We will definately go again!

This is the second time we've stayed at Rustic River. The first time we stayed in the game room- which was wonderful as well. The cottages are always clean & tidy. The grounds are very peaceful with plenty to do outdoors. We enjoyed canoeing on the Grand River this stay. Rustic River is just a short drive to Geneva or GOTL. Perfect to stock up on dinner supplies or eat out & enjoy the Lake. Thank you for our anniversary note Jen! We will continue to be back year after year!

Wow. That is it in a nutshell. But to elaborate: my younger sister found this place via internet. We were somewhat skeptical that it was as promised but ended up taking all three houses. We were not disappointed! With 55 people in attendance, we had plenty of space indoors and out. The kids were thrilled with the pond, river, and gameroom. The multiple porches, gazebos, docks. and beautifully landscaped yards were perfect for ever shifting groups. The houses were very clean, superbly well stocked and comfortable with great little touches of "home" everywhere, plus the extras, like horseshoes, bocce, grilling sticks and sidewalk chalk. The cottage was perfect for two of us - three adults would have been a stretch for more than a few days but we didn't spend much time there anyway. The gameroom was huge and well appointed for fun - loved the pinball machine, which didn't get much rest! The Big House was truly big - with a large, empty back room, we were able to set up all the food indoors but leave the kitchen clear for table and bar eating space - we were barely bumping into each other, which for our clan, was quite a novelty. It wasn't cheap, but neither was it as expensive as it could have been. Our assessment was that it was a great value. Rustric Retreat will definitely be our first place of choice when visiting the area. In fact, I probably wouldn't have bothered with the review if I weren't so in love with this property.

We enjoyed our stay at Rustic River Retreat so much. The cabin was cozy and romantic. The decorations were tasteful and the place was spotless. We enjoyed grilling out, fishing in the pond, going down the Grand River, and walking around the well kept grounds. We are already planning another trip.

Adorable little cottage

What a quaint little cottage! Very clean, comfortable and a great location. Right down the road from my new favorite winery! (Laurello) The pictures and descriptions were accurate. The amenities plenty and oh, so very quiet! It made for a perfect romantic getaway! I would recommend this property to friends and family. There is so much to do endless choices of wineries, golf courses, and antique shops. Thanks and we'll be back!

I hesitate to give the Pond Cottage an excellent review because other travelers might find out about it! We totally enjoyed our stay here. It's obvious the owners put thought and attention into this little home. The cottage is the perfect size for two and was stocked with everything you need for a getaway weekend. It was also spotless. We will definitely be back to enjoy other seasons at Rustic River Retreats.
