12 Thumbs Up!
Review #5609087 "12 Thumbs Up!"
We were three couples from Southern Indiana looking for a cool escape from the summer heat and we found it in Columbia Falls, Montana. It has been our practice to rent homes when we travel and we chose Riverside Retreat after viewing it on the internet. We could not have picked a better place to celebrate the 4th of July. Riverside Retreat is by far the best appointed VRBO we have encountered. Normally, VRBOs are stocked with starter supplies and, as you run out, you purchase more. Not so with Riverside. This beautiful and comfortable home had everything (except food, of course) we were going to need for our entire stay, right down to the fabric softener! We even had use of the computer. Randy and Dixie were just an e-mail away and always quick to respond to any of our questions. But Riverside Retreat wasn't our only surprise. There was Glacier. Glacier National Park is breathtakingly beautiful with waterfalls everywhere. We saw soaring eagles, bear cubs playing on a hillside, goats sunning themselves along the rocky slopes and a moose loping down the middle of a park road with a parade of cars behind her. We traveled the Going-to-the-Sun Road and walked in the snow. Lake McDonald Lodge provided us with a crackling fireplace to warm ourselves by on one unusually cool afternoon. We had brunch at Loula's in Whitefish and gourmet sandwiches and pizzas at Jammer Joe's. Our only disappointment (oops, forgot about our regretable dinner at the The Nite Owl) was when we had to board that plane to start our journey home. When we return to Glacier we hope to have a repeat our wonderful experiences, beginning with another stay at Riverside Retreat.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Laura, for all your hard work on this FANTASTIC review. I absolutely love the "12 Thumbs Up"! It makes my husband and I feel so good to see how our guests love their time here. We do all the cleaning, stocking, etc., ourselves and are very, very meticulous about everything. We endeavor to make Riverside Retreat as perfect as possible for our guests. We will be looking forward to your return visit!
