traveler reviews for this burnsville house rental

Great Rental

Review submitted: September 14, 2010   Date of arrival: July 1, 2010

We had a great week at Rivervista in July '10. The property was very nice -the pictures don't do it justice, really. We particularly enjoyed the big screened porch and playing with our dogs in the nice back yard and river. We had a very minor AC problem, and both David and the service techs were faster than fast at getting it resolved. We've stayed a lot of places, and here, out in the middle of the forest, we get the best service we can remember! The local hiking is great, as is the trout fishing. Highly recommended!!

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, pet-friendly, sight seeing
