                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2006

                      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. Easy access to world-class fishing on site and other summer watersports. We especially enjoy being in a more relaxed setting while having easy access to all the wonters of the Roaring Fork Valley with skiing, hiking, cycling, etc. only minutes away.
