                  About the owner: Riverhouse is only a place, made priceless by memories of rich summers, fun winters and happy holidays with four generations of family and friends amidst the splendor of God's creation. We gather as often as we can to enjoy this blessing. Let us share our Riverhouse with you. Warmly, Bill & Terri Parsons

                  Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Unspecified:
                  Riverhouse exceeds our needs by allowing room for everyone to have their own space with ample outdoor spaces for children/grandchildren to play in safety.
