                                                                        Swara S.

                                                                        Our group came to stay at RiverView estate this past fall. The grounds and foliage were stunning at that time of year. As much as we were impressed by the beautiful views, we were infinitely more impressed by the the hospitable service we received. The staff was very accommodating of our needs, and went above and beyond their duties when they got us some last-minute emergency supplies from town. The estate has all the amenities you could ask for -- hot tub, fire pit, pool and hiking trails right next door. Highly recommend the RiverView Estate to anyone looking to book a group trip!

                                                                        Very lovely people! Quick to respond with anything needed, although privacy compromised at times

                                                                        thomas g.

                                                                        Beautiful Property, Great for Groups

                                                                        John P.

                                                                        We booked a RiverView for a 2 day corporate retreat for 25 people. We had an amazing time, everything worked perfectly, and the overall quality of the property exceeded our expectations.

                                                                        The layout of the property is a large house, a smaller cottage, and a large entertainment lodge all within about 100 feet of each other.

                                                                        The house is beautiful with original artwork, hardwood floors, palatial master bedroom, and more bedrooms downstairs. There's also a sauna, hot tub, some exercise equipment (that none of us used) downstairs.

                                                                        The entertainment lodge has a large kitchen (with 2 dishwashers), full size pool table, tv, enough room to seat 30+ people for dinner and also 4-5 bedrooms.

                                                                        The cottage is smaller and I think 4-5 people from our group slept there. Though I didn't step foot in it, the members of the group who liked peace and quiet were thankful to be staying there.

                                                                        When it comes to sleeping arrangements, there are more King, Queen, and Full size beds than there are Twin/Bunk. What that means is that if you have 25 or more people then you'll have 3 or more beds being shared.

                                                                        I've booked at least 10 group houses for friends, corporate, and smaller trips. This property is by far the largest, nicest, and most well appointed. In terms of value - I looked at houses in the Hudson Valley, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey, and RiverView was far and away the best value I could find.

                                                                        A couple of helpful tips - bring basics like olive oil, salt, pepper and other spices if you plan to cook. We also brought extra paper towels & TP (although it was provided), we did find that useful. Also there was no hand soap, that might have been an oversight on the owner, but we did bring our own.

                                                                        Lastly - the in-ceiling stereo in the entertainment lodge was in the process of being rewired. Luckily we brought our own stereo & bluetooth speakers, if you like music I suggest you do the same.

                                                                        Space for everyone!

                                                                        Sara P.

                                                                        RiverView Estate by Brophy was a great place for our Thanksgiving/Birthday celebration. It is incredibly spacious with more than enough room for everyone. Especially nice was the kitchen/great room where everyone gathered most days. Equally nice was the hot tub and fireplace in the other building, which were used very frequently. Gail and her team were beyond friendly and helpful, checking in during the holiday weekend to make sure we had everything we needed; you couldn't ask for nicer hosts! Just two heads up for those who are considering staying at RiverView: 1) the kitchens, while generous in size and in most cooking needs, is shy on hand towels, oven mitts, and pantry items, and 2) the buildings are cozy and welcoming, but aging. I mentioned the need of hand towels and oven mitts to Gail and this may be a non-issue for future guests. The age of the buildings did not affect comfort in any way, but added character and charm. I hope others will enjoy RiverView as we did!

                                                                        Riverview Estate was spectacular! We arrived fairly late on Friday night and were immediately greeted by a very welcoming groundskeeper. All three of the houses were among the nicest, well-kept houses I've ever been in, and Gale (the owner) was particularly friendly and ready to accommodate any needs we had. I would definitely stay here again, and will absolutely recommend it to others!

The estate is rented out exclusively to your group only. If the 3 bedroom guest house is not included in the rental, you will still have rights to the property, just not that dwelling. All guests less than 24 guests will have the option to rent the 3 bedroom cottage for an additional fee. Rates are subject to change until reservation is confirmed. Rates do not include Holiday weekends.
