  • Zen

    "I'm a paranoid/hyper big-city girl. I'm afraid I don't do nature very well. But at the same time, I desperately needed some peace and solitude. I certainly found it at River House. A beautiful location, and a very well maintained property. In rentals of this type it's difficult to achieve a balance between rustic and convenient, and this property actually does. The location is quite remote, and some of the road (not much) leading to it could be called challenging, but it's fine (I drive a Prius and had no issues). You are actually ON the Shenandoah River. It's not exactly deepwater, but that allows for lots of water activities. The River House is on a good chunk of land, so there is plenty of privacy. The house itself is significantly larger than it appears. The living room is huge and very comfortable - the furniture seems to have changed a touch from the picture, and now the LR has an enormous sofa and 2 oversized loveseats (sofas, really - they're only loveseats compared to the sofa). Three bedrooms; while I can't exactly say they're huge, they are certainly comfortable and very well-appointed. Enormous kitchen with everything you may need, a separate dining room. And a screened-in porch with a table and benches - my favorite spot, where I speant about 80% of my time here. There's a hottub, too. Wonderful outside accommodations - a grill, a large picnic table, a bench right on the river, firepit, and a cement dock (called "The Dome", as I found out) that offers a spectacular view up and down the river. A separate note on the owner - who wins innumerable accolades for being incredibly gracious woth all my questions and fussing (of which there were a LOT - as I mentioned, I'm a big-city girl, this was new to me). The house was immaculately clean. Bugs. I hate bugs. I was very concerned about potential bugs. And there were hardly any. A spider maybe, a few unidentified flying things that minded their own business, and literally 1 mosquito in 4 days. Which is nothing, considering the location on the water. Perfect for bird-watching, and you'll see quite a bit of pretty fat squirrels. I honestly can't say enough good things about the property and property owner. Can't wait to come back!"

  • Beautiful Property

    "We had a wonderful stay and would come back here again. We have stayed at many properties by Shenandoah and this was the best by far. It is right on the water and had beautiful views. The house itself was gorgeous as well. Perfect place to relax!"

  • Great place to spend a weekend

    "The view was beautiful and the cabin was homey and relaxing-the perfect place to spend a weekend away! The hot tub was great, and we made good use of the fire pit out back."

  • Refreshing Family Get-a-Way

    "Our family of 5 stayed at Sweetwater in the month of July and it was everything we hoped for and more! Prior to arriving our communication with Jan excellent (within a day) and pleasant. The cottage was clean, beds and futons comfortable for sleeping, kitchen well supplied and the views from house and screened porch were beautiful! After kayaking 12 miles of the river, we decided Sweetwater had the best location on the river. We could see layers of mountains in both directions when standing on the edge of the river and floating in it. We enjoyed relaxing in the hammocks, floating in the tubes and cooking in the fire pit. We also enjoyed a drive on the Skyline Drive and rode the zip lines at the Shenandoah St. Park about 40 minutes away. The Sweetwater grounds were quiet and peaceful - perfect for relaxing and getting away from the city!"
