"We had an amazing time at Riverlee! Christine and Randy were so lovely to accommodate our large, multi-generational family. We've always vacationed at lakes but this was our first time on the St Lawrence river. I was a bit nervous about the water quality and river current having small children (4 yr and 18 mos) but I could not have been more wrong. The water quality was excellent and bc it's in an inlet off of the main part of the St.Lawrence, it was perfect swimming for the kids. A slight current and the perfect depth to make full days spent in the water possible. The older kids (9 - 13 yrs old) spent their whole days kayaking, snorkeling, fishing, canoeing and, of course, swimming. When they weren't doing water sports, they were playing Frisbee, on the two play structures, or climbing the rope challenge/swing. One thing I would advise is that ppl bring water shoes for everyone and life jackets for very small kids (they had plenty of PFDs for the older kids and adults but my 18 mos old and 4 yo needed their own life jackets). There are rocks, water plants and some mussel shells so water shoes just gave a little more mobility.
In the evenings, we played large family games of volleyball, Capture the Flag (property is HUGE) and we set up an outdoor movie viewing with our own projector. Of course, we had a campfire every night. We preferred the fire pit closer to the house but there is a pit by the water, too.
Unfortunately the hot tub didn't work this time and the fridge in the porch wasn't quite cold enough for drinks - but the freezer DID work so we just used our own coolers and bought ice (however, keep in mind we were a large group so others might not even need the second fridge) but we were not bothered. Next time we come, we will request AC because we were there a particularly hot week (30°+ all week) so the upstairs was quite hot for sleeping - however, each room did have a plug-in fan so those helped.
Overall, we had an absolute blast and will def be back next year! !!!
Thank you Christine and Randy!"
