  • Loved it!

    "My husband and I spent 4 nights at Withy Gate and were very pleased with it. Clean as a pin with everything we needed and more. Kris's personal touches were appreciated. Loved the patio area and it is located in a great location in Hamilton. We would definitely stay here again!"

  • Comfy cottage and a fish a day!

    "We had a great time at the Riverside Cottage! We had fun hiking and exploring the area, then came 'home' to a nice dinner - courtesy of the gas grill. Jon fished every day - and caught a fish every day! - right out the back door. I read and relaxed under the shade of a tree and waited for him to holler that he had a fish! I'd run with the camera and capture the moment :) We also enjoyed watching the deer in the field across the road. As we were told, the kitchen has not been updated, but I found it had everything I needed to make a good healthy dinner. The cottage was clean and has been well maintained."

  • Excellent stay!

    "Over all, outstanding stay and we could not have asked for more! Group of four Military rented the Kiphart's cabin after our deployment for some much needed R&R and it was exactly what we needed. The Kiphart's were extremely accommodating and we had excellent communication with them. They were even nice enough to leave us a nice gift in the refrigerator (THANK YOU!). The hot tub was certainly used for evening star gazing as the views are truly amazing. During the day we ventured out in the local towns where we enjoyed horseback riding, fly fishing, shooting etc. The locals were extremely nice and helpful. About the house: The beds were comfy and plenty of towels were provided. We never turned on the TV but we certainly used the whole house music system daily and it was awesome. The fire place was perfect to take the chill out the air in the evenings and it does a good job keeping the cabin warm. Downstairs always seemed to be cold but plenty of blankets were available. We enjoyed the drive up to the cabin every time as we saw lots of deer and other wildlife every time! We had a 4x4 pick em up truck, so the drive up was not an issue although it certainly is not required unless snow is on the ground. Overall, outstanding stay and we are very grateful to see and experience God's beautiful creation with such a great group of friends."

  • Ski Trip Stay

    "We really enjoyed our 3 night stay at the river house. Most of our group had never been to Lost Trail and we really enjoyed getting to know the mountain, even though the snow conditions were marginal. It was spring skiing in February. Pretty easy to imagine how great it would be on a powder day! A fisherman in our group caught 2 Browns and 3 cutthroat after skiing - you don't get to that every day! The accommodations were perfect, very nice place to stay!"
