We are both from the northeast and have always enjoyed our summers with the warm weather and outdoor activities. We love real estate and when we first visited this home we saw so much potential. We have carefully and methodically thought through every improvement and change we have made to the property. We really treasure our time at La Casa Del Rio - The River House.
Sheri purchased this estate in 2011
For years and years we searched for the perfect vacation home for our family. It seemed like everywhere we looked, our time was spent fighting traffic and navigating our way through the sea of other tourists. We actually 'stumbled upon' this amazing home and decided it would be perfect for us and so many other families. It is large enough to host multiple families and generations. Also, for the couple or even in-laws that want more privacy, the guest house is an incredible and spacious retreat.
The views, the views, the views are amazing! You will simply melt with the sunsets.
The house is beautiful and has many nice features. Sheri was great to work with and very responsive. This is a perfect place for a little getaway. I would definitely recommend to everyone.
We are a group of 6 retired couples. We had a fantastic time at rhe house. It has everything... dock (we brought 4 kayaks and there are 2 there), heated pool, hot tub, fire pit, great porch overlooking the Elk River, media room with huge TV for movie watching and wonderful large kitchen. Plus many other extras. We didnt have kids with us but there is also a playground, volleyball court and plenty of sports equiptment. We had an amazing time.
A family gathering of 13 fit quite comfortably in a lovely house with picturesque grounds. The activity level was high with pool table, pool, volleyball and tether ball but there was plenty of room for those who needed a little quiet time. We experienced a few mechanical problems, but I give Sheri credit - these were addressed promptly
This was an exsquisite weekend away with girlfriends! Beautiful house, amazing views and sunset, luxurious pool and hot tub, and an excellent host who was easily accessible when needed for questions. Kayaking on the river was breathtaking. I can't say enough about this house except that I can't wait to go back!
We stayed at The River House with our adult children and their families, so there were 8 adults, 5 kids from 6 - 10, and a 2 1/2 year old. The house, cottage, and grounds were ideal. There was plenty of space for the kids to run around, lots of activities to keep them busy, and enough room to separate the families so no one felt on top of each other. The house is a short drive from shopping and also from a multiplex for a rainy day. It was a great week for everyone.
The River House is beautiful. Views of the river and sunset are breathtaking. Our large family totally enjoyed themselves, especially the children. The one level house is perfect for our elderly grandmother and made it easy to keep track of the children. We would consider coming back in the future.
