My husband and I rented a cabin towards the end of August 2021. We didn’t go on a rafting or fishing adventure. From the website I thought the cabins would be on, or at least have access to the River. The cabins are actually across a road from the river and in order to access it, you have to drive down the road. The cabins were sanitary but old and dusty. They had a lot of clutter and we’re not finished out well nicely. This is fine, if the rental price of the cabin, and the website, reflected the condition and location of the cabins accurately. We checked out a day early and paid for an earlier flight home, just to get away from the River Dance Lodge.

We had a wonderful time at River Dance Lodge. The staff was wonderful and the cabin was exactly what we were looking for. We also enjoyed the rafting trip and can't wait to return for another visit. I highly recommend this place!

I love this area! It is very beautiful and peaceful. The property is very well kept and clean with great amenities. We stayed in the little cabin, which can sleep 5-6 comfortably. We loved the private hot tub as well! Anytime we had something we needed, they accommodated us quickly. They were quick to get the gas stove going and let us borrow a small fry pan from the cafe when we forgot our griddle for our camp stove we brought. Thank you!

It was nice to have a quiet, clean and classy cabin with all the amenities that we need - bathroom, kitchen, grill, and hot tub. September is blackberry season - they are all over the place. The lodge is located right off Highway 12 but there's no traffic at night. The staff is wonderful.

Our family loved this glamping tent! We were warm and enjoyed both decks. Tent was clean and had everything we needed. Our kids enjoyed trying to hot tub also. Listening to the creek didn’t disappoint. Can’t wait to try it again soon.

Jodie and her Team of amazing helpers once again made our traditional visit to RDLodge memorable. The service is excellent. The Glamp tents are just what we wanted. And we were within 4 miles of a perfect white sandy beach where we spent from 9am to 5pm soaking in the sun, quiet, cold river and the glorious views. The Cafe served only the visitors to the Lodge (no public) and we social distanced - Jodie was wonderful about keeping everyone safe...but that did not take away from the FOOD! OMG, steak, salmon, bacon wrapped meatloaf, chicken and the huckleberry pie to die for. My son and I had incredible conversations (no cell service - yeah!) and we bonded plus he honed his rock throwing skills. We will be back! And don't forget to HUG Echo for us. She is the most loving and beautiful Lab you have ever seen. GO to RD Lodge. You will make it your family tradition! Jodie, we'll be back, we promise!

The staff went out of their way to ensure we had a great time and that we were well taken care of. The rooms and restaurant were in good order and well taken care of. We will definitely be back. We floated the middle fork of the Clear Water which was relaxing with a few short sections of excitement.

My wife and I had been wanting to do this for a long time and when COVID hit we thought this could not be any better of a socially distanced vacation. The lodge did a fantastic job of keeping everything clean and safe during your stay. This was the first trip we had been on that we had extremely limited access to internet service and communication to the outside world. It was fantastic. The trip allows you to get back to nature and experience all of the natural beauty we have around us. The lodge and amenities were great but what truly made the resort shine was the amazing staff. Jodi and Chris are a priceless asset to the River Dance Lodge. They made us feel like we were right at home and Chris did a fantastic job on both of your adventures.

Awesome get away! No T V, no signal for electronics, just Mother Nature at her best! We had an adorable little cabin with an outside, real jacuzzi, comfy beds, clean and well stocked . Each and every day we would have an employee stop by and make very sure that we had everything and anything we needed/wanted. The whole staff was exceptionally awesome. You could tell that they truly enjoyed their jobs. They paid attention to COVID guidelines and I never felt like I was in any danger of getting sick. And......talk about being well fed! Food was excellent and plenty of it! A piece of paradise!

We spent 3 nights at the River Dance and everything was great from start to finish! The cabins were nice and cozy and the private hot tub was great at night to watch some stars and wind down from the day! Jodi and Chris were great hosts and were extremely friendly. I would definitely come back!
