About the property

The Riverview Ranchhouse is the crown jewel of Rock River Retreat's vacation rentals. It's most outstanding feature is the commanding views it offers of the Rock River and beyond.

Hang out under the silver maples in the expansive backyard. These terraced grounds were designed for outdoor activities and entertaining. Make yourself at home by settting the scene for your gathering with the patio furniture, gas BBQ, and fire grill.

This seasonal three bedroom vacation rental sleeps six adults comfortably. The daybed and fainting couch in the sunroom provide ideal sleep space for kids.There is a tub/shower in the bathroom, as well as, an additional powder room.

The spacious open floor plan of the kitchen/living room, along with HD-TV, present an entertainment arena. Fully loaded with all new appliances, the kitchen features an over-sized refrigerator, with an additional full-sized refrigerator in the attached garage for all your food and beverage storage. The flat surface electric stove/convection oven awaits the cooking of your favorite recipes.

This home has been completely remodeled in 2014. It has been redesigned for your viewing pleasure, with the installation of river facing windows crossing the house for a sweeping radius of the outdoors. Enjoy yourself and chill out on the living room sofa, or get comfortable in the cozy sunroom and watch Mother Nature perform for you.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I really enjoyed this large, diverse group of family and friends that booked for a summer weekend. They took full advantage of all that was offered at the property, while at the same time being respectful of other guests and neighbors. The housekeeping crew was delighted with how tidy they left the house. I will certainly look forward to their return visit.

Awesome getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 2 year old son & I had a great time at Rock River Retreat. The home was very clean & had everything a family would need. Mary was a wonderful host. She made sure we had everything we needed. The outdoor space was wonderful--a big yard, fire pit & canoe. Very fun! Can't wait to return!!

Beautiful setting right on the river! The house is spacious and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for a sibling get away and couldn't have been more pleased! The setting is beautiful with a huge backyard right on the river. Mary, the owner was wonderful and we all had a great time enjoying the outdoors, including the kayak and see-saw on the property. Highly recommend!

Mary is accomodating and ensures a fun trip. She had the house stocked with essentials and allowed us to check-in early. It was pleasant to work with her and I would definitely make a return visit.

nice amenity and hospitality

  • 5 of 5

We booked the house quite late (less than 2 months prior to July 4th holiday), and did not have much hope at that time. The fact turned out to be a perfect choice. Mary (the owner) is very kind to show me around in detail upon check in. There is all kinds of amenities (gas grill, bon-fire, kitchen, TV, wifi, sound system, 1.5 bathrooms and plenty of chairs/sofa). The overall in-door environment is awesome. Clean, tidy with all kinds of cool paintings and decorations. No bad smell and no dirty spots in the bedroom. The house accomodated our 6-people group without any problem. The check-out is easy and trouble free, too (just leave the key in the room without inspection). Close to the horicon marsh and beaver dam/horicon downtown,too. Perfect place for a vacation hangout with friends)!

Riverfront with lots of amenities and impeccable style.

  • 5 of 5

The Rock River Retreat Ranchhouse has a large beautiful yard overlooking the Rock River. The house is beautifully furnished with variable sleeping accommodations. We made a huge dinner in the fresh and modern kitchen and enjoyed a thunderstorm over the river on the sun porch. We will definitely return. Clean, stylish, unique...and fun! (did I mention the grown up see-saw?)
