Kevin and Liz Masterson welcome you to their very special family cottage and retreat. We live several miles from cottage to assist with your needs. This property is the ultimate in privacy and relaxation.

Kevin Masterson purchased this cottage in 2012

The area is very rural and private, yet close enough to the action in the Dells, Portage, and Cascade Mountain. Many guests never leave the property for their entire stay.

We enjoy the solitude and privacy. Observing wildlife in their environment is very enjoyable and relaxing.

We were very comfortable. So nice to go to the touristy area then go back to the cabin. The cabin was clean and well equipped, nicer then the pictures showed.

Owner's Response: Great review, that is the nice thing about Riverpond, if you go to the Dells it's only 15-20 minutes away, while the estate is totally away from the hustle and bustle. Thanks Again!

This property is fantastic! Others leaving reviews are right when they say the photos don't due the place justice. There was plenty of space for three couples, a baby and a Golden Retriever. The cottage may be set back in the woods, but you have all the modern amenities of home. It was nice to be secluded, yet stores, entertainment and dining was just up the road. We really couldn't of been happier. The couple with the baby stayed in the bunk house which they loved and worked out for everyone. It is very close and in no way a long walk. The property is extremely well maintained and everything you could pretty much want or need is provided. The owner was very nice and helpful, I would recommend Riverpond to anyone and will definitely return!

Great family vacation!

  • 5 of 5
Our family had the pleasure of spending another great week at this property. Plenty of room for our large family, and we really enjoy the secluded retreat. Portage has lots to offer including dining, shopping, a great beach, and with the Wisconsin Dells so close we make a visit once or twice also. Already looking forward to returning in 2015!

Amazing hidden cabin!

  • 5 of 5
Some friends and I stayed just for a night, but would have easily stayed more if we had a choice. Everything was perfect, the pictures don't do justice to how nice the inside of the cabin really is, especially the large sun-room! Even the bunk house with the extra beds was very clean and great for sleeping. The pond was a bit overgrown with duckweed, but that is probably to be expected in late summer. The aerators kept a few patches from being weedy, though. Regardless, we had a great time grilling and chilling by the fire pit. I would definitely stay again!

Our stay at Riverpond was more than expected. The pictures don't show how open and extremely well maintained the property is. It was very clean and nicely decorated. We came to relax, so the view of the pond from the window filled dining area was really nice. Also, the property was about 10 min drive to groceries and pharmacy which was convenient, but far enough away from the hustle and bustle to enjoy the peace and quiet. We really enjoyed the canoe on the river, and took lots of good pics. We definitely will be back!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback and we hope to see you again, this summer has certainly been a higher than normal mosquito count due to the more frequent rainfall and cooler than normal temperatures. I think most rural areas of Wisconsin have experienced similar situations. The pond is a natural body of water that has lily pads and duckweed in it which usually will collect on one end when the breeze is blowing. I have been operating two pond aerators the last year to improve water quality without the use of chemicals. The pond is spring fed with no agricultural runoff and the darkness of the water comes from the vegetation around the pond. For others reading this review the bunk house is about 150' from the main cottage and yes there is one bathroom. We have lived along the river for about 8 years and although sometimes mother nature does not create ideal outdoor conditions it is a very private and secluded area to relax.
