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....

We had such a great time at the River House. It is private, cozy and very elegant. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
The River House was everything we expected. Well appointed, charming, and most of all relaxing. All the touches of home on a quiet street with canoeing and the falls mere steps away. Thanks Michel!
Another fabulous time at the river cottage! This was our second stay and we will certainly make in an annual one. Michel and Renee we very easy to work with. The views were spectacular as always! Everything was available in the cottage (linens, kitchen utensils, etc.), which made our stay seamless. Thanks again Michel and Renee!
The second we arrived at this place we were enchanted. Captivated by the incredible rapids, we ran down for a closer look and became giddy as schoolchildren. Upon recovering our wits we were further delighted to find a spotlessly clean and tastefully appointed cabin, with spectacular views from nearly every window and crisp white linens on the beds. During our week-long stay we swam the rapids, enjoyed morning coffee on the "lower deck," read and sunned ourselves senseless on the rock, slept in the rustic and completely comfortable tent, watched storms pass by from the comfort of the living room, hung out in front of the campfire and prepared memorable meals in the kitchen, which had everything we needed. There is an excellent farmer's market in Magnetawan with a great selection of smoked meats and cheeses, and grocery stores and the LCBO are all within a very reasonable distance. Michel and Renee were warm, hospitable and accommodating from the very first, and we felt their presence in the many small touches throughout the cabin, from helpful notes to pantry staples to the lovely bottle of wine that awaited us in the fridge. I can't imagine a better place or better hosts, and I am so grateful that they decided to allow others to enjoy such a magical place.
Tim was a wonderful guest. I would highly recommend him.
