Lovely cottage in beautiful setting by the river

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the Riverside Cottage for one week in May. The natural setting by the riverside is beautiful and the cottage itself very attractive and comfortable. We loved the big windows looking out over the river and enjoyed hearing the mockingbirds sing and watching the geese.

The owners are pleasant and helpful. We would definitely enjoy staying here again!

Looking for a way to use your boat on beautiful Lake Oroville with the perfect place to spend your evenings. This is it! Enjoy your morning coffee by the river, spend your day on the lake, then return to the cottage for a nice shower, BBQ your dinner and enjoy the evening riverside. Lots of wildlife to watch and peace and quiet to enjoy. The cottage is as clean and nice as the photos and is fully loaded with everything you need for the perfect boating get away. The Riverside Cottage is a very special place!

Feather River serenity

  • 5 of 5

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!

Feather River Idyll

  • 5 of 5

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.
