Beautiful, Clean Home!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd visit for a girls weekend! We loved it! Everything we need is in the home and everything is clean! 5 bedrooms is a huge bonus!! Also, there is plenty of seating so everyone can enjoy visiting. The screen porch is awesome, unfortunately both of our visits occured during cool weekends, but with blankets we loved having our morning coffee out there. Great place, highly recommend!!!

The home was perfect for our "International family" attending 80th birthday bash on riverboat Queen.

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have found a more perfect house for our gathering. Spacious, comfortable , all amenities needed, and back porch and grilling/bar area was a perfect gathering place for all to reminisce and reconnect, then retreat to private space (aka) bedrooms tastefully decorated. Thank you Cathie and Dave for providing such a wonderful place. Highly Recommend! Carol & Mike Connelly, Woman Lake, Northern Minnesota

Perfect spot for our group of six dear friends to gather

  • 5 of 5

Two years ago a group of us who all taught together ages ago decided to spend time together to renew our friendships. This year we selected to spend three nights at Rivertime. We loved how clean it was, how the space was organized to give us several places to visit, and the closeness to great trails, good food, and great coffee and fresh baked goods (across the street).

We thought we would want to try out a different place for each gathering but instead voted to return to Rivertime for our next reunion.

We spent most of our time on the porch and in spite of the very noisy street just above it, we loved being out there. Inside the noise was not an issue.

The kitchen was set up so well that all of us could move around freely and help in preparations. And it definitely was well supplied.

We were impressed at how nicely the home was furnished, obvious that much care was taken to make it sp pleasing.

A special treat was our being able to visit the sweet library across the street, only open seven hours a week.

The owners were very accommodating and friendly - thank you Cathie and Dave!

Wonderful home for a family get together.

  • 5 of 5

Rivertime is a nicely remodeled older home that was exceptionally clean. The updated bathrooms both had good showers. It has a very large, attached screen porch that made a great spot for morning coffee, discussions, games, etc. The house dining area has a long table that we often used for cards. It can easily seat 8-10 people. The owners were extremely helpful and quickly responded to any communication. I couldn't have chosen a better, more affordable spot for a reunion with my siblings who had gathered to attend a family wedding. I highly recommend Rivertime to any group visiting this lovely area of Minnesota.

Classic home with beautiful living area. Screened porch and the deck with river view were favorites. We had a great stay.
