My group of five shared the River House that was built in 2012. The setting is idyllic and the house is luxurious. It is directly on the La Platta river and the river sounds are easily heard through open windows. The two large bedrooms have large, well appointed bathrooms. The little library window seat makes into a very comfortable king bed. The kitchen was a joy to use to prepare whatever meals you should choose to cook. We all loved the in floor heating that made the wood floors and tile bathroom floors very comfortable to walk on in the cold mornings and nights.
Our mornings were spent watching the deer graze right outside the house. The breakfasts prepared by gracious Jackie were delicious. All of our requests were granted and the experience was perfect. We plan to return next fall.
P.S. We dined at Kennebec Cafe twice and both times afforded us superb meals and delightful servers. It is a great restaurant in a rural setting.
