One of the most special places we've stayed in. Location is unbelievable. The house's front yard faces a rushing river over some gentle falls. Breathtaking to be that close to nature. The house itself is perfect for a couple, three adults or parents with two kids. It has been perfectly equipped with everything one might need for a few nights in the Great Canadian Wilderness. Kitchen in particular is (website hidden) was a joy. We went canoeing on the lake, and long walks on the roads. The artist's gallery a short drive away is definitely worth a visit.
The River House is a perfect, romantic getaway with a side of adventure - which is exactly what we needed and everything we hoped for. The rapids are not only mesmerizing, but the rushing sound of the water is also very relaxing. We even kept our window open to let the sound sooth us to sleep every night.
We spent our days out and about in the canoe, searching for fishing spots, reading by the rapids and prepping meals in the well-equipped kitchen all while taking in the spectacular view.
The house is very clean and cozy with everything you need. When we had questions before and during our stay, Michel was very helpful and quick to respond. Thanks Michel & Renee the lovely stay. It was a real pleasure.
'Stylish Modern River House' is everything the listing promises--inviting, clean and well-equipped.
The view of Poverty Bay Chutes is spectacular, and it enchanted us completely, whether we were enjoying it from the vantage point of the kitchen table, the 'bear chairs' on the deck, or while sunbathing on the rocks right beside the falls. This breathtaking view was definitely the highlight of our stay.
Our hosts made us feel welcome and were a pleasure to deal with. Helpful information about the cottage and the area was at hand, and responses to inquiries were prompt and courteous.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and wholeheartedly recommend this cottage to others.
We spent a wonderful 5 days at the River House. This was our first family holiday away with our 5 year old son and the River House provided a perfect base camp for our explorations. We spent our days exploring the river looking for the best fishing spots, tramping through the woods and lane ways searching for mushrooms and creepy crawly's. The cabin was everything we could have asked for. Comfortable, well laid out, nicely put together and full of thoughtful little touches that made our stay perfectly relaxing. Last but certainly not least, the view of the chutes was simply breathtaking!
We found Michel and Renee were more than helpful with any questions we had about the property and the surrounding area. I would not hesitate to recommend this spot to anyone.
We loved the River House! We spent a week here after our wedding, and did nothing but read on the comfy couch, canoe in the lovely river just up the way, and swim - close to the house, and on the fun little beach right in Magnetawan. Even on the couple of rainy days, the wood stove, satellite radio and dvd player made the river house a great place to be. The beds are comfortable, the kitchen had lots of great tools (grater, big heavy pots and pans, lots of knives etc). The river is stunning and you have full view of it from inside the house, on the little viewing ledge down the steps, and from the rocks right beside it. We're thinking about coming back in the winter....
