Just got home from vacation today, wanted to comment while still all fresh in my mind. We arrived at house 1/2 hour early only to meet "caretaker" coming out of house after cleaning, she was very friendly and helpful with info. House was very clean and welcoming. My kids 12 and 14, boy and girl loved it and had great fun tubing in river. Dogs loved swimming and playing at beach. We hiked, shopped and mountain biked. Great base camp! We when to ausible chasm and tubed it was breathtaking!!! Even had a deer in yard eating apples!

While it was only two of us, this place was perfect for just a couple, but would also be great for a group. Loved sitting on the porch, quite and cool, and watching a nest of 3 baby birds up in the porch roof, learn to fly and take off while we were there. Great place and Keene was a great location. Locals very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay again. If you're in the area during the season, make sure to check out the local Keene Valley farmer's market on Sunday. Great produce, baked goods and crafts!

Three generations plus dog enjoyed a wonderful stay in this beautiful and tranquil place. We found the house spotless and very comfortable, and the grounds perfect for cricket and bocce! Spent hours in the river... fantastic.

This was our second trip to this lovely home on the river. We got to enjoy the beach this year and play in the mighty river.Did so many things and enjoyed the beauty and the nature of the area. Chapel pond was a hit, it was fun to swim in the pond.Even while on vacation people seem to think mom has to cook, the new kitchen and dishwasher made it a breeze. Thank you for a lovely week and we will be back for sure!

We had a perfect time last year and heard there were renovations before we got there this year. WOW!!!! It was great to have an updated and huge kitchen as well as a master suite on the first floor. And this was done without losing any of the charm this house had before. Well done, Joe and Michelle. A labor of love done to perfection!!!! Sue Ann, Michael and the Dobergirls

AWESOME! Thank you so uch for letting us spend a great week in your beautiful home. The decor, the hummingbirds, wood peckers, blue jays and the 5 lb toad made for a week hard to leave and go do things. This is truely a place to come and relax, a car whats that? The sound of the river at night by the fire was wicked. Quick drive to the ferries, whiteface and lake placid. We will be back, fer sure!

Dear Michele & Joe, Thank you for sharing the magical beauty and tranquility of River House! My family and I enjoyed a week of undisturbed paradise in your lovely house upon the hill, gazing down upon (and swimming and fishing in!) the mighty Ausable River. It was a sweet summer reverie we shall not soon forget. If you'll have us, we'll be back...again and again!

August 2006 - We enjoyed another wonderful stay at the River House (previous visit Summer '05). Great location...close enough to enjoy both the Lake Placid and Whiteface areas but secluded enough for a very relaxing vacation.

We've found Heaven on Earth and it's located in Keene, NY. Wow - this was a fabulous vacation, thanks to Michele and Joe and their beautiful cottage. We relaxed on the river after tackling some great rock climbs. The battling "herds" of hummingbirds were a comical treat. We saw only one car on our road the whole time we were there - the driver was lost and only found us by accident. The quiet, peaceful seclusion and the sound of the Au Sable running in the background made THIS a vacation we hope to come back to again and again.

I spent a wonderful Columbus Day weekend at River House this year. The location is fantastic-secluded and yet near enough to hiking trails in the high peaks region. The foliage outside the house was fantastic. Inside this wonderful home, we were also more than content. It is wonderfully furnished with rustic furniture and Adirondack accents. The efforts our hosts made in making this home comfortable, attractive, and functional work! Thank you so much for a wonderful stay. We'll be back!

We stayed for 5 days at this wonderful house, with huge field in the back and woods and the Ausable River out the front door, complete with sandy beach area, forested picnic spots, wooded walks and loads of quiet and privacy. The house is cosy - perfect for two couples or a family with 1-4 kids, or even just two people who want a little room to spread out. Pine boards cover the walls, ceiling and floors, and lovely Adirondack furniture completes the feel of a High Peaks getaway in the woods. The owners are great people who know the region and can give you plenty of tips about things to do, and they've made this house feel welcoming and comfortable. There's lots to do in the area and no reason to do any of it if you feel like spending the day fishing on the private river frontage that comes with the house, or swimming in the river, or playing touch football in the meadow out back or just sitting on the Adirondack chairs on the porch and looking at the millions of stars at night that you can't see when you live near civilization. Ah, bliss. We'd go back in a heartbeat.

Having a house all to ourselves on the river is great. The sound of the water is so relaxing,and the smell of pine floats through the windows. We just love sitting on the porch watching the water and enjoying a great bottle if wine. Very refreshing. The hummingbirds are amazing as they dart to and from the feeders. We'll be back.
