It's not without its quirks but I can't imagine a lovelier setting for a B&B/hotel. It's smack on the river and the water is great for swimming especially given the hot weather.We had the trailer and, whilst a little cramped,provided a superb secluded spot to while away our evenings. Yes some things don't quite work as they should but nothing... More

We stayed 3 nights in the self-catering Hideaway RV, detached from the house with lots of outside space fronting the river. The setting is gorgeous and we spent very little time inside, with our own firepit to sit around each evening. The ground and landscaping requires steady footwork, and there are steep steps down from the road. The RV is... More

We spent just one night here as part of our 19 day road trip and we were very pleased with the room and overall experience. We stayed in River Studio and it really was a lovely room with the most comfortable bed! We slept so well. We popped down to the nearby Pizza restaurant and bought takeout pizzas which we... More

We were on honeymoon, and therefore they upgraded our room to the mastersuite while we booked the gardensuite. It was amazing! Also there was a basket with... More

Do not take the Garden Room. Very small. Only one double bed. Hardly enough room to move around. Only about 50 ft from main highway, very noisy. Lot of noise from above you. If you ever take this place make SURE you get a room overlooking the river, not one facing the road. Very over priced for their accommodations!

This is a magical place; my family spent two incredible nights and three days here and we really felt like we were at a close relatives house. Everything is perfect, from breakfast that we opted for to the cozy house and the fire lit by the river every night. If you're looking for the perfect getaway with the family, this... More

We had three nights here and opted to stay in the hideaway We LOVED it! Such a cute place, super clean and couldn't ask for friendlier welcomes. Barbecues by the river, Campfires, listening to the river, wading in the river. Just idyllic. Thanks Margaret and co!

We stayed at Rio Sierra with our 4 children on October 4-6. We just had a perfect week-end. The rooms are well decorated, but what makes this place so unique is the friendly service and the amazing location. The river is beautiful and so much fun to swim in. Our kids had a fantastic time. We even spotted a black... More

The title of this review was my wife's comment on about the second day of our stay at this great little place. We stayed for 3 nights in mid Sept 2013. It doesn't look much from the outside to be honest - but as they say appearances can be deceptive. Quirky is a description others have used - and I'd... More

Stayed there for one night only, but it was really great. Amazing location beside the river, friendly people, lovely room. And it´s close to the National Park. Would definitely stay there again (and for more than one day).
