This is a cute resort. The unique art sets the place apart. The owners and staff were friendly but unintrusive. The room was a bit tight and pretty bland for the price. I enjoyed the river view/access. We loved jumping from the bridge. And they're cats gave us a warm welcome. We were able to float right up to the... More

This was our second time to stay at The River's Edge Resort. We enjoyed it, in spite of a problem with the mattress. They quickly resolved the issue. It's very convenient if you are there to float on the river. Already want to go back! This is not a Marriott, Hilton, or Hyatt type of hotel, but it's perfect for... More

Great place to stay if you are canoeing on the Jack's Fork. Its a family run place in a good location. My room was very comfortable and clean, bed was comfy. Shower worked good. Has a cabin like feel. The river is right in front of the motel so you can sit on the balcony and relax and enjoy the... More

Stayed here at Rivers Edge for three nights (October 13-15, 2015). The 2 bedroom suite that I stayed in for $149 per night was a rip-off because the bed linen on both beds had NOT been changed when the last occupant of the room checked out. Both beds had a lot of human hair on the sheets and pillow cases.... More

This was a cute, comfortable place to stay. The owners were friendly. It was very clean. We used the fire pit and barbecue grill on the side they allow pets which is what we were looking for. They also have cabins and a path down to the river's edge. They have free wifi but service was spotty. We would stay... More

The motel is very clean and well kept. The owners are peculiar. It seems as though they have come to believe they own the river. It appears that their efforts to protect their side of the river from erosion have pushed the river to the opposite bank and seriously undercut the opposite bank. I think they hauled in truck loads... More

Thank you for your positive review, the river in front of the main building changed course because of gravel mining without respect of the vegetation over two decades ago. We tried to stop it and it was permitted by the U S Corps of Engineers and a lot of large trees were dozed out to get more gravel. This was... More

It seems as though like a few others on this site I am not alone in stating the owners of this establishment were down right rude and unaware of how to properly deal with customers and problems that may occur. I will start by saying our our first trip here was pleasant. The room was pretty clean and we had... More

we have visiting eminence several times a year for over two decades and always have always stayed at river's edge and it has wonderful every time. The owners have always been great hosts and very helpful. The resort has grown through the years and has been done so nicely along the river with unique iron artwork everywhere. The rooms have...

I stopped by the office to ask about prices and such. It was a Saturday afternoon, I was alone and was not drinking, drunk etc. The lady I spoke to was very hateful and stated over and over again how quite time was 10 pm and they were a family resort and did not tolerate loud people after 10pm.

My two friends and I stayed for three nights at River"s Edge. Our room was huge, clean, and it looked like the bathroom had been recently remodeled. The water pressure was luxurious. Our room had a double bed and a king sized bed. There is every amenity a person would need: a coffee maker, microwave, mini fridge, a tv, a... More
