The Rainbow Cabin is an absolutely perfect place to escape for rest and relaxation. My husband and I loved it!! If you like to fish, the location is ideal. I enjoyed spending time on the deck just listening to nature and watching the river roll by. Just lovely.

My husband and I have stayed at River Hideaway several times, with groups and as a couple, each time the trip has been wonderful. The cabins look as if they were professionally decorated, while still obtaining that cozy at home feeling. Our group adventure landed us in the rainbow cabin at our last stay, convienently located by the fishing dock.... More

My husband and I were truly blessed when we discovered the River Hideaway. We spent 2 months living here, and it was one of the most relaxing, healing places I have ever been. The cabin we stayed in was very clean, (the Blue Heron), and just being able to watch the sun rise & the blanket of stars each night... More

Relating to "Don't Stay Here!" I'd like to mention that I have a most-enviable occupancy rate of 75% year-round - which many 5-star hotels would envy! I also have a 50-60% returning guests, something I'm sure would not be true if all the allegations in this review were true. First things first: The guests were not provided with a key,... More

Stayed in the Brown Trout Cottage. It was small, but cute. It was right on the river with a nice dock for fishing. The down side: it was not clean. There was a layer of dust on just about everything. It wasn't so bad that we felt we couldn't stand it, but I did spend some time trying to clean... More

This review is about the "romance suites" upstairs in the Log Cabin Lodge - the Eagles Nest and Robin's Roost. NOT the cabins by the river. This is the new lodge as advertised on the website. THE GOOD THINGS - nicely decorated. Large bathroom with top of the line spa tub, nice soaps and candles. Lots of towels. Decent sized... More

Perfect end of summer getaway. My husband and I took our son and a friend to the Brown Trout Cabin for a few days before they went back to school. We loved it! The cabin itself was very nice, and very relaxing. We really enjoyed the full kitchen, especially with two boys! Loved the screened in porch - especially at... More

We stayed in the Rainbow Trout Cottage. This place is absolutely great. If you want a place that is quite and peaceful, this is the place to go. We enjoyed the river veiw that we had. And the porch on the river bank is a great way to unwind from the day. They allow pets which was a plus for... More

There are two cabins on this property. We stayed in the Rainbow Trout Cottage which was absolutely breathtaking, a french country paradise. Its not a large cottage by any means, but very comfortable. The deck overlooks the river and its a short walk down the steps to an awesome fishing deck. Our neighbors were kind enough to show us the... More
