We stayed at River Dance Lodge with our daughters, son-in-law, and granddaughters for six nights in July. With the exception of the almost round the clock road construction during the week about a mile away, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
The strength of River Dance is its staff. Jodi, the excellent Manager, did everything possible to ensure that we enjoyed our stay. Chef Everett and his meals are simply awesome. Even though we ate in the restaurant every night and most days for lunch, we never got tired of it. The chicken tava, the hamburgers, the sauces on several dishes, and the huckleberry ice cream were particularly good. Activities Director Tim, his assistant Erica and our river guides, Ben and Joey, were wonderful.
Oh yes, and Lisa at ROW Adventures patiently answered endless questions.
For me, River Dance Lodge would be nearly perfect if it were tucked away from the highway in some nice quiet woods. As it was, it was at truly wonderful place to go for a family vacation. There were plenty of outdoor activities - rafting, kayaking, horseback riding, and hiking.
The cabins were comfortable and well-appointed. There is no air conditioning, so it did get a bit warm inside during the afternoons. But it cooled down nicely after sunset. The outdoor hottub on the deck offered a relaxing time for the whole family. Although the restaurant does not serve breakfast during the week, Jodi arranged to bring us breakfast baskets with bagels, cereal, milk, juice and fruit.
We look forward to returning some day to enjoy the hospitality, scenic beauty, and wonderful river adventures.
