The River House Country Inn was a gift to us from our home restoration contractor. My wife and I arrived on a late afternoon and we checked into the "Wee cabin" - our own private cabin on top of a mountain overlooking woods and fields. The "Wee cabin" has a large California king bed, a whirlpool tub for two, separate bathroom, gas log fireplace, kitchenette, and a large covered deck with outdoor chaise loungers, table and chairs. The main Inn is down at the base of the mountain and overlooks the river. The front porch has chairs and tables to enjoy a cocktail or glass of wine while waiting for your dinner reservation. The inn has two dining rooms and the meal was absolutely delicious. The steak was tender and flavorful, the bread was fresh, warm, and delicious as well. Needless to say, the creme brulee was out of this world. Sherman and Paula were fabulous (Paula makes a mean dirty martini) and our server was very attentive as well. Back at the cabin, we were entertained by a deer just outside the cabin (appeared again the next morning). I would wholeheartedly recommend the River House Country Inn as a very special getaway. Thank you to Sherman and Paula especially for making us feel welcome and as if we were family.
