My boyfriend and I took our first vacation together at the Rivendell cabins. We stayed in Cedars. We did make it up the hill in my Hyundai Elantra, but after gravel was put down towards the end of our visit it was much more difficult to make it up the hill to the cabin. The cabin definitely needs a good... More

The wording said remote, it did not say rugged approach. The last mile is clay and gravel, very narrow and steep. Definitely would not take an ordinary car. Cabin was basically clean but needs a giid deep clean. Upstairs beds and almost all the furniture were bottomed out and worn. It was scary to see the pillows we were using... More

We stayed in cedars cabin. It was very accommodating and well equipped. The views from the deck are breath taking. We had daily visits from hummingbirds. Keep in mind you are on a mountain top so the drive up and down is not easy terrain. However the dirt road is maintained. The cabin is very clean. You are in the... More

However if comfort and or cleanness is not a issue for you, then this place is for you (rivendell cabin) many many spiders, bath room and bedroom. The road to this cabin was made for a tractor, not a car or small pickup, and forget passing anyone, if you meet a car, you must back up.

Ms.Nina was a very good hostess. The Cabin she gave us was on short notice and for longer than we expected. She helped us out as we were moving here from Florida and House Hunting. Her Dogs were great and were friendly to ours. It was private and peaceful and we will recommend Rivendell to anybody who asks. The cabin... More

The owner came in when we left to bring "sheets", there were several sets of Sheets available and this was not necessary at all. She came in unannounced when we left to go gem mining, letting out our beautiful Maltese. He was in the woods for hours on end alone and scared. In addition the owner left the DOOR open... More

Our stay in Cedars cabin was absolutely wonderful. It was quiet and very private. This is a great place for a couple to get away for a special trip. My husband and I loved sitting on the porch overlooking the beautiful view of the mountains. The cabin was very clean and well stocked with linens, soap, dishes, etc. The free... More

This was my second trip to Rivendell Cabins this year. This time I stayed in the Rivendell cabin. Loved having the hot tub right on the porch. This is an entirely different place each visit, depending on the seasons. As before, the cabin was clean, comfortable and well maintained. The homemade, fresh blackberry jam Nina left on our porch one... More

Our cabin was spacious, quiet, and serene. Everything was there other than food (except cookie mix and hat chocolate). Nina scripps our hostess checked in on us to make sure all was well. We really enjoyed the spa while sitting in a light rain and had our "vibation" looking out over the most beautiful views. I would highly recommend Rivendell... More
