My family and I stayed at the Riverside Cottage during my son's college graduation weekend. It was the most perfect place! It was a great way for family to stay together and have a gathering place, away from the hustle and bustle of graduation. The house is big enough when the grad came to visit with his friends, we had plenty of space for people to sit and visit, and a wonderful gas grill to cook up big meals to feed them all! When they say fully stocked - they mean it! Everything you could possibly want in the kitchen, tons of extra pillows, blankets, etc. The location is perfect and serene - right on the river, yet just minutes from town if you need to pick something up, or head out to eat. We will definitely stay again!
Very Nice Cottage. Very Clean. Great location on the River with nice view. Short drive to Lake Oroville. We'll be coming back.
This is a magical spot with an excellent orientation to the river. The house is wonderfully situated on a knoll looking down at the water. The interior of the house is charming and full of interesting books on the area and points further afield. The host are delightful and extremely helpful. Highly recommended.
