Longtime Brophy Renter here. The fact that I’ve stayed at Riverview and Lakeview 4 times should tell you something about how great the experience is working with Gale, but if you’re not convince by the almost perfect reviews she’s received, keep reading:This time my group of 72 people rented both RiverView and the newly completed DeerRidge at the same time to accommodate everyone and I’ve had many of my group tell me it was the best weekend of their life. The properties are easily walkable and fit together nicely to create a massive estate perfect for a huge group like mine. Every house has a different personality, you can tell Gale had a master plan for this estate and spared no attention to detail.Beyond the property, so much of an enjoyable rental depends on the people that hand over the keys, and Gale Brophy is unlike any other host I’ve ever experienced. You have all the space and privacy in the world until you need something: a recommendation, help with a dead car battery, questions about how to operate the property… literally the second you need something her and Walter are there, ready to help. I struggle to call her a concierge because she’s really a friend that will do anything to make your stay enjoyable, but the level of service is world class.I could go on all day, but here’s the bottom line: For a combination of luxury, scalability, service, amenities, location, and price… this has got to be the best rental property in the world. Stop looking and go find out what I’m talking about.

We had our annual youth ministry staff retreat at this estate. It’s a way for all of us to bond and finish the year off strong and as you can imagine, the venue is an integral part of the experience. We usually go to a beach house, but that tradition was outvoted in favor of the woods. So that led us here.

Our experience at Deerridge estate was a blessing to say the least. The whole team went above and beyond to take care of our needs from beginning to end. They even mailed one of our staff their forgotten wallet after we left. The house was large, and yet remained cozy, which is an important quality in the winter months. The hot tub and pool table gave everyone something to do when we weren’t rolling around in the snow and the view of the valley was a beautiful backdrop for our morning stretches. I think I speak for everyone when I say that we all left abundantly pleased!

We will certainly be coming back in the future.

I can't say enough good things about this home... the pictures don't do it justice! My girlfirends and I visited Riverview for a bachelorette weekend and it was everything we had hoped for. We had a bout 20 people and rented out the large home and the big game room house and we had more than enough room for everyone. The houses were awesome- from the living areas, to the game room, to the indoor hot tub room...it was awesome! the areas outside the hose are just as nice. We enjoyed the fire bit and the bbq. It was too cold for use to go swimming, but the pool areas looked amazing. The staff of the house was equally as awesome- there was someone on call 24/7 for whatever we needed and Gail, the owner, personally called and checked in on us everyday. I look forward to visiting her homes again.

Great venue for our school retreat! A group of 30+ people, we stayed for a lovely weekend at DeerRidge Estate. We could not have asked for better accommodations to facilitate our group-bonding! The space was beautiful, clean and well designed to suit the large group. Everyone was able to mingle and have fun with others in the common areas of the Estate [and enjoy the hot tub, pool table, ect] when they wanted to, as well as enjoy some peace and quiet alone in their own room when need be. In addition to being a beautiful structure, the surrounding property is very pretty and serene.
