River Cottage

My family had a great 2 night stay at this River house. We brought ATV's and had fun riding the trails around the house. My boys also had a great time playing in the river and riding the canoe. Wonderful relaxing trip!

Beautiful, relaxing, refreshing!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and her four children (ages 4-15) and i spent three delightful days at the River cottage! During the day the kids explored, swam and paddled around the river and in the evenings we played table games. The home was accommodating and clean and the beds comfortable. The kitchen well stocked. The caretaker was helpful and shared local fun things to experience. The kids LOVED the canoe, and water toys. We walked up the rail road tracks and picnicked upstream by the river. We roasted hot dogs and s'mores around the fire pit. We just wished we could have stayed longer. Everyone wants to go back! Thank you for sharing your lovely home!

Absolutely Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

God has blessed you with an amazing home. The scenery is lovely and the neighbors are nice. WiFi does not work, that's a good thing in this house!

Tip: Bring a paper map and be prepared to use it. Our GPS could not find the place and we got lost a few times.

Absolutely Beautiful!!

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at the cottage was awesome! The only drawback was the lack of cell service in the area but at the same time it was nice to get away from it for a while. The house had everything we needed and while we were there we were lucky enough to experience both spring and winter like weather. The first day the weather was beautiful and we were able to spend the day outside. The next day we woke up and it was snowing quite heavily. I would certainly recommend this place for anyone who wants to get away for a little while and still feel like they are at home.

Breathtaking Views of the river. A very peaceful and happy place to be!!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying in this beautiful house. The pictures do not do this place justice. If you like peace and quiet with only the river and birds to listen to this is your place. We sat on the porch all weekend(had exceptionally warm weather for the end of February). While visiting you must visit the little Swiss-German town of Helvetia and eat at the Hutte Restaurant. It is a magical experience while the town has such a neat history. The Buchannon River cottage is always very clean and comfortable to stay at. The sleeping quarters can fit up to 10 comfortablly with other couch and floor space if needed. The kitchen is very well stocked and you pretty much just need to bring food to cook. We did not use the grill but it is there on the porch if needed. Once again a fabulous place to stay especially if you are looking for peace and quiet. Thanks again for an unforgettable stay.
