Our Best Getaway Ever!

  • 5 of 5
Our group has been going away early fall together now (we're 20+ adults and kids) for the last 7 years and the Riverview Estate was easily the most interesting and enjoyable place we've stayed in. Beautiful wooded surroundings, gorgeous vistas, luxurious rooms, kitchens galore (we cook all our own meals), spacious places to hang out together or separately, and the graciousness of Gale and her staff made our recent long weekend retreat the best ever. We'll certainly be back again.....kudos to all the staff for taking care of our special needs and requests, of course Gale who made sure we always had everything we needed.

What an AMAZING location !!!

  • 5 of 5
We had a group of 20 adults of mixed company, and could have fit a few more. The amount of room was incredible.

First off, we were greeted by Michelle and Bobby on our arrival and they were great hosts, taking the time to walk us through all 3 houses and pointing out important details. It was a great way to start, as we immediately felt at home. Bobby also responded immediately to any questions we had during the week, which was really appreciated.

As you go through the rooms, all of them are spacious and elegant. Bedrooms are amazing, and all furniture is new and cared for. All three houses were in impeccable condition. The nice thing about this is that the 3 buildings are a stone's throw away from each other, but at the same time give people places to tuck away if they need some personal time.

The Entertainment lodge is truly a highlight, and amazing place to congregate. We generally hung out here, when not hiking on a trail, and it easily fit all of us, from the TV area, pool table, and massive dining table, where we often played board games.

Usually I like to give constructive feedback, but in this case everything was truly perfect. I can't say enough good things about Riverview Estate.

This was our 5th reunion, and was by far the nicest location. This destination is truly 5*, and we are DEFINITELY coming back.

June, thank you for having us. It was truly a privilege, and we look forward to seeing you for many years to come!

The Very Best

  • 5 of 5
This review is a 2-parter, first half for the owner and second half for the property.

The Owner - Gale Brophy writes the book on running a luxury rental property. She is engaged and available enough to make sure you have everything you need at any given time, yet provides enough privacy and distance to make you feel like you own the property throughout your stay. Her only concern is that you enjoy your time at Riverview, and works with you before and during your stay to match her property best for your needs. Every group is different, and Gale understands that better than anyone. It's rare to encounter a property like this where you really feel like a friend gave you the keys for the weekend. I really can't say enough about what a pleasure she was to rent from. A+

The Property - Being the organizer of my group I had studied the pictures of Riverview multiple times before arriving. When I arrived I noticed two things: 1 IT'S HUGE, the pictures can't really capture how large this property is. 2. The set up and floor plans are perfect. Large spaces for when you want everyone together flowing into pockets of seclusion for when you want to escape and relax. I had a max capacity group and many times I felt like there were only a couple of us there. The only difficult part of the weekend was trying to enjoy every amenity of this property is just 3 days; Steam shower, pool table, sauna, hot tub, fire pit, the list goes on and on. The views are beautiful from the house, especially while sitting on one of the 5 balconies/porches with coffee in the morning.

Needless to say, this was the perfect vacation with the best owner and best property I've ever encountered. Only rent this property if you want to raise the bar on your vacations.

Thanks Gale!

Annual Family Reunion - 2nd at Riverview

  • 5 of 5
My family which consists of about 18 adults and 4 babies just completed our second annual family reunion vacation week at Riverview Estates. Next year we’ll spend our third year in a row there because we unanimously agree the amenities are perfect for our needs. With three buildings each with ample bedrooms, bathrooms, living space, kitchens and patios, we found we could enjoy sufficient private time but also have large enough areas in which we could congregate. We’ve been taking annual family reunion weeklong vacations for 25 years so we have plenty of comparisons and Riverview stacks right up there at the top. During the day we all like to follow our individual preferences for activities such as swimming, hiking, biking, kayaking, reading, billiards, working out, hot tubbing or golf so we all were content in our endeavors and not stepping on one another’s toes. At night we take turns cooking feasts to share so all three kitchens hosted at least one dinner. Each of the three building has a firepit and folding lawn chairs are plentiful so nightly bonfires can be enjoyed. Gale has provided all the comforts of home including plenty of cookware, dishware, exercise equipment, books, TVs and games. She was always there to answer questions and ensure our comfort. She’s a delightful and charming person so I’m glad to have been able to meet her this year and look forward to seeing her again next year.

Great group getaway

  • 5 of 5
Back in 1994, a group of ten guys became close friends in high school and formed a squad. We've all reunited at weddings and our annual christmas party since then, but for our twentieth anniversary we were looking to do something big. Most of us are married now, some with kids. Where could we go that'll suit us all? A place where the guys can grill and goof off, the wives can drink wine and roll their eyes at us, and the kids can run around and play together?

The moment we saw this Riverview Estate page, we were hooked: this looked like our ideal vacation spot. (The entertainment lodge was the biggest selling point!)

It worked out great. 17 "adults" in our mid 30s with 7 kids under 5. There was enough room to spread out (families with kids slept in the main house, child-free couples in the other two.) People would go off on their own excursions during the days (hiking, biking, excursions into town) and we’d all gather for dinner in the entertainment lodge every night. Grilling, drinking, playing pool and poker, having fun in a relaxed and comfortable environment.

Gale was very attentive and helpful. There happened to be an issue with the pool liner, which meant the pool would be closed for half of our stay. She went ahead and purchased an aboveground pool, just for us and basically just for a weekend. It was above and beyond anything we would’ve expected.

We all had a great time, and would be excited to return at some point. It was a vacation of extra-ordinary magnitude.

The Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Our week at Riverview could not have been better. All 21 one of us, ages 75 down to 1 had a wonderful time. The wide beautiful porches kept us dry even in wild thunderstorms. The grandchildren(and the adults) had a great time in the pool, and swimming in the river across the way. The Main House master bedroom had the most comfortable mattress we've ever slept on. It was especially helpful having three houses, giving all ages a sense of privacy, and the pool table provided hours of fabulous indoor entertainment for teenagers and adults. I suspect all 21 of us would hope to return next year.
