This was our 3rd year and as always it was fantastic. Thank you Mary for being so accommodating. We had a wonderful time fishing, relaxing by the fire and yes, one of us took a dip in the river. Can't wait to come back next year!
Comfortable and well appointed, close to many activities, unfortunate traffic noise
We enjoyed our stay! the cottage is comfortable, nicely decorated, well equipped both inside and out. The pier and deck on the river is lovely, particularly during the full moon when we were there. The only thing that keeps me from Five Stars is its location right on a well traveled county road close to a Menards distribution center. There is truck traffic day and night. It eases up a bit at night, but it seems to be a 24 hour operation. A quiet day outside is just not possible. If this doesn't bother you or affect your plans, then I highly recommend Rock River Retreat. But sadly we will not visit again due to this unfortunate traffic noise situation.
Looking for a relaxing home. Awesome.
This place was what I expected and more. We really enjoyed the home and the property. Very relaxing and a home away from home.
Great time, place was just as advertised! Thanks!
Relaxing spot on the Rock River.
My family of 4 had a great stay at Rock River Resort. Mary actually has three separate units in one spot: 2 bedroom, 3 bedroom and 1 bedroom. We stayed in the 2 bed unit. It was great. Very nice and clean. Mary was a great host, letting us borrow her bikes. Horicon and Juneau are very nice communities. Can't think of a drawback other than he house is right next to the highway - but you get used to the sound of the occasional passing traffic. All around great place.
The house was comfortable, with a beautiful view of the river. We had a fun stay.
There were no problems at all while we were there. The screen porch and deck were both comfortable with good views of the river. The property owner was responsive to questions. The only concern is it is not easy to get around the property if you have any impaired movement. There are no railings on the stairs down to the front door, and the only other way to the front door is to walk down the hill next to the patio past the retaining wall.
Don't miss the Horicon Marsh Educational Center Explorium and also great, easy hiking trails and bird watching.
