“The perfect place to relax and have fun!”
My husband, infant son, my parents, and I all had a wonderful time. The men went fishing on the wonderful dock, while us women relaxed and went shopping in Elizabethtown. It's a great place to stay! Got hooked on the glazed crossiants from Bernie's in downtown Elizabethtown. The owners will not steer you wrong on nearby places to go and see. We were close enough to visit White Lake and the water park. We will be renting again, maybe in the Fall next time and will be bringing more people to share this wonderful place with. A great vacation!
“One of the best vacations we've ever had!”
As with another review on here, I am reluctant to write my review as I don’t want to give this place away. What a wonderful, wonderful place Rivah Getaway is! The house is spacious, comfy, extremely clean and well equipped. Awesome master suite! The grounds are magnificent and so well kept. The owners, Dale and Chio (and their little sweet daughter) are wonderful people that we enjoyed getting to know so much. They go out of their way to make your stay the best it can be. And they love to hear suggestions that would make your stay better, as if it could get better. But I really appreciate that about them. Here are just a few things that set this place aside from your ordinary rental: ~ Personable and flexible owners ~ Owners that get back with you in record time ~ Best neighbors you could ever ask for ~ Little things kept in the house (condiments, salad dressings, spices, charcoal, etc.) ~ Unlimited hot water ~ Awesome fire pit with the best burning wood ~ Two resident owls that like to get up close and personal. This was super cool to see. ~ Extremely private. We never heard a car the entire time we were there. And finally, be sure to talk to the next door neighbors Marcus and Ashley about the getaway they offer in their pontoon boat to a secret location on the river that will leave you breathless. And on the other side, Cathi, for homemade jewelry. Thank you Dale and Chio for a wonderful and memorable vacation. We can’t wait to come back and we will be back.
Response from the owner Hey Kym, We really enjoyed your stay with us and we are glad you and your family had a great time. We are looking forward to seeing our new "family" in the near future. Go buckeyes
“This is the perfect place to get away from it all!”
Magical place on the river! Dale and Rocio are wonderful hosts. Caught some catfish, watched some birds, met some nice neighbors, ate good food. Visted Harmony Hill Plantation which is close by. Lu-Mil Vineyard is also very close, but we had been there recently. Ate at Giorgio's in Elizabethtown, which is our favorite Italian restaurant in North Carolina. Enjoyed the antique store. A perfect weekend! Also visited some friends at Camp Clearwater in White Lake! Thanks everyone!
My significant other and I (and our 3yo lab mix) rented this cabin for a 3-night stay the weekend after Christmas and we had such a relaxing time there. The house is located right on the river, in a secluded area off the beaten path. You'd have to take a dirt road down the hill to the river to reach the property. Although a 4x4 may be required in case of rain, we made it down there just fine in our FWD sedan (road was dry when we got there, but forecast called for rain the next day so we drove back up and the owners Dale and Rocio were more than happy to take us down to the cabin in their truck) The property itself is very well laid out and had plenty to keep you entertained. There are several furnished decks where you can kick back and enjoy the outdoors, read a book, or just listen to some music on the stereo systems that are hooked up both outside on one of the decks and in the living room. I personally really enjoyed the private dock on the property, which is complete with your very own floating fishing pier. I spent quite a few pleasant hours just sitting out fishing while enjoying the scenery. At night, we built a big fire in the firepit and made smores. There is a gazebo with a gas grill inside (which we didn't use as we preferred the charcoal grill that is also provided for your use), and a hot tub that looks over the river. Unfortunately the hot tub was out-of-service during our stay but it didn't bother us none since it was cold out and there's a 2-person jacuzzi jet tub inside the master bathroom and it was more than what we wanted. Speaking of the master bath, you have to see it for yourself as the pictures simply don't do it justice. Everything looked newly renovated, and you can really tell the owners put a lot of thought and work into it. They're very accommodating and quick to get back to your questions etc. We will certainly be looking into coming back for our next vacation when the weather gets nicer!
Response from the owner Hi Teng! It was a pleasure to have met you. We are more than glad to know that you and your girl enjoyed your stay. Thank you for the positive feedback ! We would love to have you back!
“Will definitely be going back!”
The only reason I do not want to give The Rivah Getaway a good review is because I don't want the world to find this wonderful hideaway. The property is right on the river and includes all kinds of outdoor space and extras. The owners are friendly, helpful and just plain nice. The house is uniqueinside with hardwood all around and very cozy rooms with twonderfully comfortable beds (and a crib in the Master bedroom - perfect for my family). Modern appliances and hardware throughout. The Master Bath is heaven, period. Access can be tricky in rainy weather but the owner is willing to trek you in and back out if necessary. We got in just fine in my 2003 Chrysler mini-van in semi rainy weather. Will need a good wash now, though. Due to being so close to the river the cottage is on stilts requiring steps to get to the main levels but my 76 year old mother had no trouble and also loved the whole experience. We'll be going back, for sure. (PS - the dogs loved it, too!)
Response from the owner We enjoyed Rebecca and her family. They took care of our place as it was theirs. She gave us feedback and we took notes on the suggestions for making our place more enjoyable to other guests. Thank you Rebecca for choosing Rivahgetaway. We hope to serve you again sometime in the near future. Dale and Rocio Bollinger
“A Place With Character”
We stayed here Thanksgiving weekend. What a great house on the river. The house has marvelous decks with river view. The living area/furniture is very comfy. Beds/bedrooms/baths all very comfortable as well. The owner is very easy to work with. This place is definitely in an out-of-the-way location and the road could be a problem with heavy rains. But my Jetta made it just fine this time. We will definitely consider staying here again! Thanks!
Response from the owner Thank you Claire and Robert for taking care of our place. It was a pleasure to meet you. We would love to have you again in the future!
“Awesome and relaxing get away!!!”
This place was amazing and beautiful. Great place to relax and enjoy nature. The scenery was breath taking. I brought my family and my kids really enjoyed the fishing. Will be revisiting in the near future.
