Rivers Edge Cottage was perfect for our Family! From the Bunk room for the grandkids to the screened in porch for the adults to sit outside. It had all the amenities of home, all we had to do was bring our food and beach towels.Water parks for the little ones and winery's for the older ones. Great Family Fun! The staff was accommodating and so polite. We would recommend Rivers Edge Cottage and we will be going back again!
This cottage worked wonderfully for our family! We had three couples and each couple had there own bedroom, that are very comfortable and spacious. We had 5 kids that slept in the bunk room on the other side of the cottage. It is very big bunk room with lots of extra space for the kids to play. We never felt crowded at all, because the layout is very open. It also has lots of dining space with a huge dining room and the screened in patio. We saved a lot of money on this trip by bringing our own food and using the grill and kitchen, and had smores over the fire pit. Julie and Eric are great hosts and provide a lot of extras like bikes, games, and canoes. The entire property is full of nature and is nice and private. It is also centrally located to so many activities from a day at the beach, to kayaking, Berry picking, wineries and breweries, antique shops, and even a casino. Lots of great ice cream parlors as well. Would highly recommend this cottage for a wonderful family vacation.
We had a wonderful time and loved the cottage. It was top notch and the hosts are welcoming and helpful with any questions you may have. would like to come back when we have more time to enjoy all the farm has to offer as well as the surrounding area
We held a family 60th Bday party at Goldberry; in the River's Edge house with overflow guests staying in the owners' home. Had the time of our lives. River's Edge has large open spaces where we hung out all day playing games and just catching up. We were a group of over 20 from 2 years old to 65....plenty of space for all to spread out, but to also be together. The house is bright and kitschy in just the right way. Good kitchen with MORE than enough dinnerware, glassware, etc. We cooked and ate all our meals in River's Edge with no problem. Bedrooms at River's Edge are very large with plenty of room. Views over the river are beautiful. There is screened porch that would be lovely in the warmer weather. Owner's home is large and accommodating. Those that slept there said the beds and baths were great. This is a great home for a family reunion. Very private, you don't see any neighbors or even the inn, yet you can easily follow the path and go through the gate to be right on that part of the property.
