Spent a few days at ROLF mid-June and had a fantastic time. 3 mid-thirties couples stayed at the Chalet on a whim and found it to be a very charming cottage with an amazing view of the meadow and the falls from the front porch. There was plenty of space to spread out for privacy. The kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms were very spacious and well taken care of. There was easy access to a nice flat on the river as well as walk down access to the Falls. Myron and the staff were ultra-accommodating and really nice down to earth people. If you have any questions regarding the history of the area and the river Myron is the man to ask, he knows it all!
The North Fork....The trout fishing was top notch! I've fished a lot of well known rivers in the Midwest and this has now become my favorite. The wildlife in the area is unbelievable! We saw so many wild animals we lost count...bald eagles, red-tail hawks, flying squirrels, badgers, ground hogs, deer, armadillos.
If you do stay at the ROLF(and you should), definitely spend a day floating...the river is like an aquarium...it is teeming with so much life it's insane...fish, crayfish, clams, otters, beavers. We think Myron should start renting our clear-bottom canoes so that the paddlers can look straight below them as they paddle down this pristine river.
I debated putting up a review because I would like to keep this place a secret...but it's too good to not share with people. If you're thinking about...just do it. You'll enjoy it!
