I spent 3 days there. It is a really nice place, very beautiful, nice food (even if the choice is rather limited). The location is extremely beatiful but there is only one short trail to the river. There is another trail, a long one but it is not marked and you cannot go there on your own. We had a wonderful guide in the person of a little boy from a nearby ranch.
Another problem is sleep quality. The rooms are nice even if very small, there is no room for a closet or any other storage place for your luggage. For me, it really did not matter. The view from the room was breathtaking.
What I did not like was the fact that I could hear everything that was happening in the house, including everything other guests said and did. Otherwise it is a very beautiful place and a swimming pool is quite nice.
