    we loved staying in the Cottage at Riverside. Very clean and well maintained. Perfect place right on the river. If your looking for the perfect get away this is it. Be prepared that the road into the area is not paved and is very rough, the directions could be better, because of where the cabin is located. But that is the only negative that we had, but got to take the good with the bad sometimes!!! We will go again.

    Amazing trip!

    The Cottage at Riverside was an amazing Cabin. Location was great. To listen to the River was the most relaxing vacation We have ever been on. The Cabin was clean and well equipped with all essentials we needed. It was a great week over all. Thank you

    A Little Piece of Heaven

    The written directions were excellent! The cabin was spotless, beautiful and contained any kind of small appliance/cookware you would ever need! The view was awesome with surprisingly no outside insects to contend with.The fenced in yard for our baby (some people call them "dogs") was just an absolute dream come true! We had a little problem getting the gas grill to start...we called the office and someone was there in less than 10 minutes and had it going in 5 minutes! I cannot say enough good things about this place!

    We have rented other homes from Sliding Rock Cabins and have never had a bad experience. The fridge wasn’t as clean as I would like and the door wouldn’t close unless you pushed it shut.

    Very nice cabin

    Very nice and clean cabin.Enjoyed our stay,very relaxing.The cabin was very well stocked with all necessities.The only negative comment would be the gravel road with lots of deep ruts and potholes,just drive slow.

    We loved every bit of our stay at A Cottage at Riverside. It was so well equipped and comfortable. Just like home......only different!

    Homey, comfy and cozy!

    Lovely being by the babbling brook and we liked seeing it, having a fire near it. The hot tub being outside and listening to the natural surroundings was super. This cabin has most everything you need. A few winding roads to get there, cabin, very clean. Both beds were king size which was a plus. Enjoyed the fireplace and natural wood burning with gas starter.
