The stay was great! We loved the feel of the fishing cabin, even though it was winter. Would definitely go back. Need a lot of people to split the cost though.
Most relaxing 4 days all year
This cabin was cozy, clean and secluded. We had the most amazing time tucking in over the new year. The river behind the house was frozen solid and we spent a lot of time on the river trails each day. The kitchen was well stocked so cooking was simple. Sara was our contact for checking in and out and she was extremely flexible and accommodating. It was -12 for several nights we were there and the cabin stayed warm and cozy. There are a bunch of bird feeders and we spent each morning identifying birds that came to visit. We saw a red-headed woodpecker, a goldfinch, chickadees, dark-eyed junco, bluejays, cardinals, hairy woodpecker, mourning dove and many more! We couldn't have asked for a better retreat.
Very clean and is A nice place to stay
Everything was very pleasant and enjoyable
Another GREAT stay at the River Ridge Cabin!
This was our second visit and we enjoyed it as much as the first visit. Nice, comfortable cabin, wildlife, trails, hanging out in the river and making special memories with family and friends. Hopefully, we will be back next year!
Everything we were looking for in a relaxing, cozy environment
Thank you for sharing your resort with us. Great place, clean and includes everything a group may need.
Cozy cottage in a great location
The cottage is quite nice. Log cabin style house with 2 bedrooms on the first floor and a spacious loft. Kitchen is well appointed, living space inside it's nice. There is a great deck overlooking the river, and a fire ring near the river. The walking trail was lovely, following the river and cutting back through a nice meadow.
The owners were great with communication and very accommodating.
This is a great location, half way between Stevens Point and Waupaca, either is a short drive away. The land itself was scenic and quiet. We had a fantastic stay!
