Isle of View

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our 3 night stay at this beautiful location! The house decor is full of character and humor. We enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub after a day of skiing and playing ping pong for entertainment. Don was very helpful when we needed something.

Great Location and Charm

  • 4 of 5

Fabulous location and charming house. Beautiful spot nestled in the middle of the river. The uniqueness of this home and location helped us overlook some cleanliness issues. Such a cool place we would rent again. Caretaker was friendly and helpful.

Good place for the right group

  • 3 of 5

This is really a unique place. I went back and forth between loving it and hating it. There are SO many positives, but unfortunately the couple negatives about the place outweighed them and I was very ready to get out of this house by the end of our stay.

The positives...

There's a suspension bridge - how cool is that!

The river on both sides - gorgeous

Location - private but so close to town

House size - really spacious!

Fully stocked - plenty of TP, towels, kitchen supplies

Backyard - is fantastic! With a swing in the middle of the river! They have a little man made island with a two person swing. It was heavenly!

TVs - big TVs with lots of channels

Game room - my kids loved the pool table and ping pong

Caretaker - super friendly

The negatives...

When we checked in the caretaker mentioned that occasionally they may have a mouse. Ok, I get it, middle of the woods, old house. I can handle an occasional mouse. What I can't handle is within hours my kids are on the living room floor and mice are bold and plentiful enough to come skittering right past them. And waking up at night hearing them gnawing in the closet. And ZERO mouse traps out! it is very hard to have a relaxing vacation when you feel like the place is crawling and mice may have touch every surface.

Second, the smell in the extra master bedroom. We checked in on a cooler day and the smell was there but tolerable. By the second day the temps were in the 90s and it was SO TERRIBLE for the rest of our stay - sick to your stomach terrible. There is a dead body of some sort in or under that room. There is a review from 6 months before our stay complaining about the smell too.

And a couple areas that could be improved...

The hot tub. When we opened it the chemical fumes burned our eyes. We found a testing kit and as expected the test registered through the roof for bromide/chlorine. We have a hot tub at home, so we didn't bother having them drain and refill. The caretaker was so friendly I'm sure he would have fixed it, but it is something that is so easy to take care of, it should have been done correctly and ready for guests.

There are several sliding doors that open to the river and backyard. Could have been a positive, but there was only one screen on one of the doors and lots of bugs coming off the river.

It really is a cool house. I wanted to love it. But the smell and the mice kept it from being a relaxing vacation house.

Owner's Response: Sorry to hear these negitive comments we try very hard to make your stay at our home exceptionally nice. As far as mice go we are in the "woods" and occasionally they can invade we have now decided to put traps out between guests visits and if anyone ever spots mice signs please bring it to Dons attention. As far as hot tub we go above and beyond to keep it clean. Have had trouble in past from guests jumping in river and tracking mud into tub, so now we drain water every stay and fill with fresh water and reheat for every new stay as far as chlorine we do have a floating chlorine dispenser for health reasons. One of the really nice things about my house is lack of bugs being on the water for some reason I do not understand there are almost no mosquitoes our flys occasionally moths at night, 4 of the 5 sliding doors do have screens one that doesn`t by hot tub does not function as door(sliding door right next to it) The occasional smell in extra is a mystery we are trying hard to resolve.

Great place, very spacious, lovely property.

  • 4 of 5

Great space, relaxing surroundings. Not super clean nor luxurious, but it's a cabin on the river and wonderful for what it is. Lots of room and space to spread out in.

Great Time at Isle of View

  • 4 of 5

Our family recently stayed at Isle of View property in Ogden Canyon. We hiked Canyon Falls on 19th Street, went paddle boarding at Pineview, rosted s'mores in the fire pit, barbecued on the patio and enjoyed movies on their recently installed smart tv. Overall, a great time. It is an older home and felt like a nicer cabin. Don, caretaker is super nice!
