Gale Brophy, her husband Walter, and the staff at Riverview Estates are first class all the way. We had a party of 38 and it was all ages. Everybody had a magnificent time.The Hosts - Top notch hosts, ensuring that everyone is having a good time. They are always accessible and are obsessed with pampering their guestsThe Property - There are a couple of different properties. We were at Deer Ridge, it is on a beautifully landscaped property. It has hills, trails, and a wonderful fire pit for a great night activity.The Accommodations - It looks like one big building as you look at it from outside. In reality, there is a long porch spanning the entire frontage of the house. Off of the porch you can access a private 5 bedroom house, a large private suite/apartment, stairs that take you to a private are that has about another 7 bedrooms and plenty of bathrooms. Back downstairs next to the suite there are two rooms that are perfect for entertaining 40 people comfortably. One is a dining room and commercial kitchen and the other is a bar and pool table area. In the back of those rooms there are another couple of bunk bedrooms. Then next to it is a private handy-cap accessible bedroom and bathroom. In the back of the house there is also another bedroom and private bath.Town - The area is absolutely beautiful and secluded. If you are coming from a city, this is just what the doctor ordered. We caught some delicious trout just steps away. The properties are very easy to access from the highway as well. As you get to know Gale Brophy, you learn that she thinks of everything. We had an outstanding time!
As a group of college friends getting together for a wedding, the Riverview estate provided us an incredible place for our weekend. Walking around the estate, from the pool, to the fire pit, down by the barn, and generally through the woods, was gorgeous and made for both great exploring and a great setting to enjoy each other's company. It felt like Riverview could sleep as many people as you could imagine comfortably. The owner stopped by on Saturday, not to hover over our group to see if anything was wrong, but to ask if we were enjoying ourselves and if there is anything she could do for us. The amenities inside the houses, such as the pool table, hot tub, and workout area, were unexpected but terrific additions that really enhanced our weekend. I would absolutely recommend this property to anyone with a big group who plans to spend time in the area.
