Susan and Dutch were Great hosts. We arrived at the home in the evening and they had both the outdoor lights on and some indoor ones so we could find the place better and also open the door easier. They had left the woodburning stove going so the place was nice and warm. The view from the house to the river is stunning both from downstairs as well as upstairs. We did run in to an issue with the water pump stopping our 2nd day there and had no water for a few days. But Dutch did come up a few hours after letting them know this issue and then a couple of days after he came up and put in a new one. We understood that they were not at fault about this because it can obviously happen to anyone and they tried to get a new one on asap. Overall the home is terrific besides that issue. 2 nice full bathrooms 3 bedroom and the master bedroom is huge with a desk, a lounge chair, and a beautiful deck overlooking the river. Not much to do around the area itself but just an hour drive is waterbury,vt with a lot of tours and activities to do and montepellier is under an hour away as well.
Susan and Dutch met us at the house with a warm greeting . They had a welcome basket of local cheese and wine. That was very nice and unexpected. They even included dog biscuits for my pups...how thoughtful was that.
The place looks exactly like the pictures.
This river home is an excellent bargain. Just having the river right outside the door is relaxing and healing .
What an amazing week ! Thank you so much, Susan, for welcoming us so well : wine, fruits, cheese, toys for the kids, security gates for the little one.
Beautiful rustic home, such a great view, perfect river for the kids to play, fire pit for the whole family to enjoy. Easy to get there, to live and far but not too much from supermarket and first necessities.
Susan got back to us within the next five minutes when needed, thank you for that :)
We will come back, for sure !
Beautiful home in the Vermont countryside. The river is warm enough for swimming and there is a great swimming hole just a few steps away. We enjoyed the wonderful hospitality of Susan and Dutch who left a delicious welcome basket of goodies including ingredients for s'mores that we ate by the fire. Wonderful deck that overlooks the river, everything you could need in the house and conveniently close to town. Also saw some wildlife which was fun. We BBQed almost every day which was great, and spent many hours sitting on the deck and by the river. The location is absolutely spectacular.
One thing to keep in mind is that this is an older home, in the country and is a bit rustic as you might expect. We found assorted grasshoppers and other bugs circumvented the screens. The house was also home to a number of spiders, again not a surprise in the country but if you are arachnophobic you might want to be aware.
Overall we had a great time.
Glad you had a great time and enjoyed all the River House and area has to offer. Thank you for the great review, everyone that has stayed up there has loved it!!!
(Just want to note that spiders have never been an issue at the house. If you read through all the other reviews no one has ever mentioned that. I think all houses get the occasional spider. Its never been a problem for us, the house isn't that old it was finished being built in 2002. Just want to make sure others that read the reviews understand that :) Hope to see you again, it was great having you both.
My family and I enjoyed a lovely stay at this perfect rustic spot. Waking up to the sounds of a babbling river is a rare and precious thing. This was across the board the definition of a fantastic and peaceful country escape. The fire pit and grill are perks that make the outdoor experience here especially beautiful. We enjoyed the swimming holes and stillness of the natural beauty all around. Relaxation comes very easily here! We were made to feel quite comfortable with thoughtful touches from Susan like a happy welcoming package. She was super attentive and accommodating the whole time. If you are looking to quiet the mind and build happy memories at a country get away in the woods, this is the place.
A little slice of heaven! The Vermont river house is the perfect place for some R and R. The house has everything you need to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. The river is fun to explore and the sounds of the river drift you off to sleep. Susan and Dutch were great hosts and greeted us with a bottle of wine, fresh flowers, s'mores ingredients and treats for our dog! We will definitely be back again!
River house is a true gem. It was exactly what we were looking for in an anniversary house: peace, calm, quiet, beauty. A burbling brook soothes you to sleep. Susan and Dutch were wonderful hosts, even bringing us wine, flowers, and marshmallows. At night there is a fire pit beside the river. During the day there is a perfect swimming hole just down the road. Wright's mountain is a great hike and just up the road a few miles. All in all this is probably one of the best places on AirBnB.
Thank you for the great review Thaddeus, I am so happy to hear you both had a good time, that really brings me joy! I love hosting people and I try hard to make their experience a good one. Hope to see you both again at the River House or in one of our other Airbnb places in NH or STX. We have someone staying in the River House from Sept. thru June, so it will be available again next summer.
