"We stayed at the Riverhouse two nights (5/23 and 5/24/14). The house itself is marvelous, the view unbelievable. There are two coves nearby that we enjoyed. The house is pet friendly, and our golden retriever certainly enjoyed being there, especially getting to swim in the coves. The property is mostly fenced, which helped with the dog. However, if it were my property I would want to let renters know that the railroad is right outside the fenced area, and trains come by several times, day and night (last night there were at least 5 trains), including at least one that appeared to be a train hauling crude oil. I know there's nothing that the owner can do about that, but I do think that it's worth mentioning to a potential renter. The fence does not fully enclose the property, so pets and children need to be monitored. You need to cross two sets of tracks leading to the property, and given the numbers of trains, one needs to be very diligent about crossing the tracks.
There's lots to see and do in the immediate area. Again, it's a beautiful, historical area, but as far as I'm concerned, the train is an issue and a potential renter should be informed. Not sure I would stay there again, only because of the train. Just too loud (and the house even shook)."
