"We spent a lovely Fall week at the Riverhouse. It is exactly as advertised, perched on the bank of the Housatonic River, with a great view across the river from the house and the deck. All you see are trees and water (and the occasional blue heron and bald eagle). Very comfortable, well-equipped and well located. Bee and her mother-in-law, who lives just down the road, were excellent hosts. We will be back!"

"The house was perfect for our weekend. The weather was not the best but staying inside with the fire could not have been better. Plenty of room in house to cook, eat, drink and be merry and SLEEP. Bedrooms were all they were listed as. The owner could not describe or represent the house better. A quick drive to down town for supplies but if you don't have anywhere to go staying in works too. I highly recommend this property and would love to come back in better weather."

Our 2nd time - wonderful property, location and hospitality
"This property is amazing. The location is perfect - 5 mins to town, 8 mins to butternut.
Set back from the road, secluded (no visible neighbors from inside the house) on a river, amazing bones (exquisite chandelier, grand piano, antique details, sweeping staircase, carved moldings and French doors, fireplaces, hardwood floors) along with great, tasteful and useful upgrades (lovely claw footed tub, new mudroom, easy access to new washer, dryer, nest heating controls, blueray player).
The living space is grand and comfortable - plenty of seating (essentially 2 living rooms connected). The wood for the fireplace is accessible and plentiful - bonus there is no extra charge for wood!
There are views of the river from the bedrooms - and each bedroom is tasteful and comfortable. Master is spacious.
For bathing - well stocked (shampoo and body wash, plenty of towels). Water is plenty warm and water pressure great.
Great dining space fits 6-8 comfortably. Kitchen is small but easy to use and well stocked.
The owners are incredibly easy going, personable and professional. We were welcomed with a personal note, bottle of wine and biscotti. Any time I emailed the owner - I got an immediate and reasonable response. And as a second time renter of the property - already had established trust with the owners. Our kids talk about this house during the year - and we promise them a week next year.
