My husband, 2 dogs and I had a wonderful time at the Riverside Nest! The setting was gorgeous, the little touches provided for the dogs were so appreciated, the secluded location was perfect to unplug, and everything was so comfortable. Hoping to make another trip here in the future! Thank you for a lovely stay!

Favorite rental ever

This cabin has such a peaceful, warm, welcoming feel. I loved everything about it, especially the sky lights over the comfy bed so you can look up at trees and stars as you fall asleep. Everything was super-clean. The only downside is the narrow, steep road up there - I would strongly advise not arriving after dark like we did! The stairs down to the river are steep as well but doable and good exercise. Dog bed, blankets, dishes, treats were provided for our dog. And the whole property is fenced as well. Our Australian shepherd is terminally ill and this may have been his last trip, so we needed the weekend to be extra-special and it was. Really hope to return to this place!

The magical Treehouse

From the moment we saw the cabin tucked high in the mountains with a view to die for,I knew we were staying at the right place. The cabin was immaculate with everything we needed to enjoy our stay with our two fur babies! I got to relax to a beautiful thunderstorm with the lightning coming through the sky lights. The hot tub was another bonus because I had a failed back surgery and it made the pain bearable,the comfortable robes after enjoying the hot tub were the icing on the cake!. We used the walking sticks to hike each day,thank you for that. We enjoyed evenings sitting by the fireplace with a glass of wine. Saw deer everyday we were there!! I did make it down to the creek,walking slowly and enjoying all the nature around me. We had a wonderful week and will definitely return. Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful cabin with us.

Perfect Couples Cabin

I fell in love with this cabin. The bedroom has sky lights and a door to the deck. Plus the bed was amazingly comfy! The deck was perfect for lounging around, enjoying views and relaxing in the hot tub. Speaking of views, the windows were from the floor up and afforded beautiful views that even my dog could enjoy. I've never seen windows that could open from the top down as well as the bottom up so that was an interesting discovery. The kitchen had everything we needed for making all our meals for the week. I really enjoyed all the cute decor and design. The steps to the river made for great exercise, but my dog wasn't a fan. LOL They had everything you could need for your dog, including cookies! There was a chest with a variety of games to play and a selection of books to read as well. We had a great time and did not want to leave! This has been my favorite cabin yet!
