My fiance, 3 pups and I had the most relaxing and pleasure of staying over two nights at this gorgeous cottage. Everything is amazing, tidy and beautiful. Location is great, everything was close by. Deb and David are so easy going and very friendly. We will be back

Amazing accommodation.

  • 5 of 5

I took my girlfriend here on a secret getaway one weekend. The cottage we stayed in was great with plenty of space for us and our dog. The back yard area was fenced so he could play around and had lovely views of the grounds and river. Deb and her daughter even arranged a secret area for me to propose down by the river at sunset. Complete with cheese hamper and fireplace it was perfect. She said yes of course.

We loved our stay at Riverbend and will be back for our next holiday.

Could be improved!

  • 2 of 5

Adequate in furnishing although things could do with a scrub eg, leather chairs! The scenery was pretty, although you could hear the traffic. Having to take your own bed linen and towels was very inconvenient and there was no soap in the bathroom apart from anti bacterial handwash! Stayz receipt had a picture of a gorgeous swimming pool - alas no pool here, just a muddy creek! Very misleading!

Owner's Response: Dear Helen As a "replacement" guest who stayed in place of your children, who were unable to take up the reservation, it is unfortunate that it appears you were unaware of what Riverbend Lodge offers. Had you looked at the photographs and read the description on the website, you have been aware that only bedding is provided, and that guests are required to bring their own linen & towels - this is listed in the description so guests are aware, prior to making a reservation, what is, and what is not, provided. You would also know that the property does not offer a swimming pool, hence if the Stayz website sent you a receipt with another property's photo on the receipt, that is beyond the property owners control and the STAYZ website mislead you, not the property description, or its list of features. No other guest has ever expected the property to have a pool, as none is listed or shown in any property photos. You would also be aware that guests are required to bring along all their own consumables including all toiletries, which is specifically detailed in the information provided prior to arrival. Nice to hear you liked the scenery. Regards Debra

Quiet and relaxing

  • 3 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at River Creek Retreat. While not fancy it was very relaxing, and we had everything we needed. We stayed in the studio cottage which had a queen bed and a single bed. There was a kitchenette and a bathroom.
