"Second time staying at this property. As most have already said, it looks small form the outside but plenty of room inside. We had 14 in the house and there was a bed for each. Plenty of parking, as most of us came from different locales."

"I surprised my wife for our one year anniversary and I could not have asked for a better place. The cabin was amazing and Phoenicia was an awesome little town. We will definitely make it back up there in the future and we hope that this cabin will be available!"

"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!"

"Very nice log home with all the amenities, including a very helpful and informative owner. We spent the weekend with 4 young kids (ages 5-9) and they had a blast in the house and in the area. For fishing, you're somewhat centrally located and near a lot of good spots on the Esopus. A great family getaway in a magnificent setting and this house was the perfect place to come home to after a long day. There are some good restaurants nearby and we also had a great BBQ at the house and the kids toasted marshmallows in the fireplace, which was a really great experience."
