Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Marilyn,



Our family had a wonderful time, and are already talking about staying at the Lodge again next year. A special thank you for the ping pong table, which provided hours of entertainment. The commercial kitchen was also great, and of course the main gathering space with the beautiful fireplace was wonderful.



The only maintenance item I'm aware of was that one of the black chairs at the smaller dining table had a loose front leg, which seemed like it might give out if someone sat on it at the wrong angle, or a little too abruptly. Otherwise everything worked well.



Thanks again,

Rachel

Terrific Retreat for Writers

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 16 writers staying for a week. This is our favorite place that we continue to come back to. That should tell you something. The beds are comfortable and there is plenty of firewood for a warm and cozy time. The main room has sufficient floor space to lead a morning wake-up exercise session. The only down side is the fight that develops over who will get the awesome master bedroom. It is in a great location, far away from noise yet close enough to easily get your groceries or go to a restaurant. To top it off, the host is very responsive. I wholeheartedly recommend this place.

Amazing Cabin!!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with a group of 5 families including 9 kids. This place was way more than enough space. The cabin itself is beautiful and perfectly clean. The commercial dishwasher was amazing for a quick cleanup after meals. The kitchen has pretty much everything you might need and the bar area was great to keep the drink making out of the kitchen. This was my second time staying here and I would not hesitate to recommend this place for any large groups.

Huge! Beautiful! Cozy!

  • 5 of 5

Riverside Lodge was the perfect place for our recent annual friend trip. Vast is an understatement when it comes to the lodge. There were beds for everyone to sleep in and the beautiful table sat all 23 of us! The setting is so pretty too that it didn’t even matter it was cloudy and rainy all weekend. The large wood burning fireplace kept us nice and warm! This is a perfect place for large groups and I would highly recommend Riverside Lodge to anyone!
