Quintessential Cabin in the Woods!
Absolute cutestest cabin with all the amenities and comfort awaiting you. We spent the days hiking beautiful trails and splashing in the nearby waterfalls, and enjoyed coming back to an outside fire (chimney in side yard) and cozy beds. Our Bernese mountain dog loved the early morning walks in the refreshing creek located in the back yard. Experiencing only one night of rain, we gathered on the huge screened in porch for dinner & games......fabulous family time in the mountains!
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!!
