"My husband and I hosted our wedding this past September at the chalet and I can honestly say I will never forget the magical weekend we had in the house. It will forever hold a special place in my heart. First, I will say we appreciated the house for all it's beautiful handmade craftsman grandeur. The house has a warm and comforting quality to it and when it's filled with your friends or family you will appreciate that. I can't see how you couldn't make wonderful memories to last a lifetime here. We fit 11 of our dear loved ones in the house, we found the accommodations very friendly to a large group. Great kitchen upstairs stocked with things you need to cook and entertain. Washer and dryer was super helpful. Living room upstairs is extremely cozy. Bedrooms are clean and inviting, perfect to relax and get away from the group if you need some time alone. We made use of the backyard behind the house to host approximately 55 guests, a bar and buffet and it was perfect. Susanna, the property manager is super helpful and responsive and a dream to work with. I can't say enough good things. Stay here!"

"I have to say I looked for months to find the perfect place for my bachelor party. After spending the last three such parties for friends in Las Vegas, and spending thousands of dollars, I was committed to finding an affordable place within driving distance from New York City that could comfortably fit my large group of 24. I was done with the expensive pool parties of Vegas and wanted something different, something truly unique that my closest friends would always remember.
When I read the description and saw the pictures of Riverview, I was confident I had found my perfect location.
I spoke to Gale and Kristen over the phone before booking and they convinced me that this was indeed the right fit... and boy, were they right.
The weekend we just spent up there was one of the greatest weekends of my life. The pictures are fantastic on the website, but they couldn't even do the property justice - as it's very hard to quite capture the beauty and privacy afforded by a true 1200-acre property. We spent the weekend playing kickball in the giant field, sitting poolside in the hot-tub, and in the luxurious entertainment lodge. Staying in Riverview felt like we were in a private mansion, decorated with some truly incredible artifacts from the personal life of the property owner Gale Brophy, a former Kentucky Derby winner, among other accolades. The house and property was so incredible that our group did not leave the property the entire weekend.
Gale and Kristen were great and were incredibly quick, open, and honest about any questions big or small that I had - no matter what time of day I asked. They aren't lying when they say they're 24/7.
The property was exactly as advertised if not better. We easily could have fit a group of 32, maybe more. The property is just that big.
Mine was a bachelor party, but the property works for any large group looking to just get away for the weekend and avoid the traffic, flights, and annoying expenses that come with the usual destinations like the Hamptons, Vegas, Miami, or New Orleans. I would 100% refer this to anyone I know looking to get away with a big group.
Thanks so much Gale for a weekend my friends and I will never forget!"

"We stayed here mid March to access Hunter Mountain with a group of 8 people. The home is located on a VERY secluded road- basically off the beaten path! The guys were able to play football right in the street & I think we only saw 1 car pass by over the whole weekend. Very isolated- which is what we wanted. Close drive to Hunter- about 10 minutes! Home was clean & well equipped. Bathroom was very large & updated. Rooms were spacious enough & there was also a fold out couch in the living room. Open plan upstairs, which was good for a group of 8. Large covered grill was right outside the kitchen for convenience. The jacuzzi was clean & a nice touch after a long day of snowboarding. Yard was big but we didn't get much use because it was snow covered. The downstairs entertainment area was a really nice add on! We spent a lot of time playing pool, ping-pong, and foosball. The washer and dryer looked newer (also downstairs) but we didn't use it since we only stayed for 2 nights. The owner was very prompt with communication and was available for any questions we might have. House is also equipped with wifi, which was great for playing our own music on our Beats Box. :)"

"We felt very comfortable in this beautiful home. We enjoyed the Hottub and outside firepit down by the pond. The kayaks were a lot of fun too! We enjoyed barbecuing on the spacious deck as well as star gazing, and just relaxing spending quality time with our family. The Beds were so comfortable everyone was well rested the whole weekend. We will definitely book this home again in the fall. And the guys had a blast fly fishing in the area. Great time was had by all. Thanks mike!! Ours dogs were exhausted when we got home"
