  • perfect vacation house

    "This was a wonderful rental experience. The owner was prompt, thoughtful, and friendly in all her communication. The property is gorgeous, inside and outside, and generously accommodated our family of 6 adults, a toddler, and a housebroken dog with a bedroom and bathroom for each couple. The kitchen is extremely well equipped and we enjoyed the big outdoor grill. Three indoor seating areas -- extensive library with game table, tv room with piano, and living room -- and multiple outdoor seating areas, shaded and sunny, gave us lots of gathering places; and it was great to have both the indoor and outdoor dining tables. Watching the river and trains provided endless entertainment; as did the ping pong table, croquet, bocce, and kayak. The caretaker greeted us upon our arrival and assured us of his availability should we need anything. Highest recommendations for a relaxing vacation!"

  • Evergreen House

    "I think we'll plan to stay here again. Comfortable accommodations, with very attentive owner. Lack of bathrooms was not a problem for our party of 10 as each was setup with an additional sink."

  • Flawless experience!

    "It was my turn to host Thanksgiving this year so I thought we would all (twenty family members) stay at one place instead of hotels. Maple River Retreat was everything I could ask for! It accommodated us all comfortably with ample room to cook, play and just relax, there are beds for 16 not 20, but this was not a problem because some folks brought air mattresses. When we ran low on wood to burn Becca promply restocked us, even on Thanksgiving day. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner at the Resort at the Mountain (I would recommend it). Some of my family members had never been to the NW and needless to say they were speechless with the beauty and the retreat! Becca thankyou so much for sharing this wonderful house I would not hesitate to come back!"
