My wife couldn't wait to get back to The River Jewel Suite at the end of the day. National Parks?! Forget them ... take me back to River Jewel Suites! We both wish we had more time there. It all starts with the owners and Diana and Larry are just wonderful.
The house with the two suites is literally on the edge of the River. A few steps down a wonderfully landscaped walkway and you're at the water. There are chairs and lounge chairs and a hammock and a firepit and a ping pong table and beautiful birds and ... the sound of the water working it's way past is such a balm. Is this heaven? No, it's Three Rivers. Keeps your eyes open for Blue Heron on the water ... fishing.
Bikes are provided free of charge.
There's a small kitchenette with refrigerator, microwave, toaster, Mr. Coffee maker, and ... Starbucks coffee to brew! Very nice HDTV.
We had a very short blackout due to storms and the Jules (River Jules - get it?) quickly provided us with battery operated candles!
Oh ... and the phone in the room is analog which means ... it works during an outage. I'm an IT manager so I LOVE old tech that works in a power outage. They also had a powerful flashlight in the room.
If you insist on the owners making your breakfast then know ... they don't. Which is fine by us. You've got a kitchen and the fantastic We Three Bakery & Restaurant across the street that does breakfast impeccably well.
Air conditioning and ceiling fans and ... thick, lush bath towels unlike the bath napkins you get at hotels.
The owners provide an excellent product and we wish them continued success and happiness.
