A perfect quick stop to see GR and campus on our way home from a long trip. Quiet, beautiful woods and kind, helpful hosts. Wish we could have stayed longer!

My wife and I were fortunate to stay for a night at this lovely property. It's very spacious, shady and private. Our host met us at the road to guide us in and then made us feel very welcome.

I really enjoyed my visit to Riverbend Retreat. The hosts were friendly and so helpful. Water and electricity were so appreciated. I was able to bike ride to a local orchard and farm to pick up fresh produce. I will visit again!

We stayed at Riverbend Retreat for 3 nights to outfit our rig for our 5 month camping experience. Doug and Melanie were incredibly helpful and gracious to us during our stay. As first time RV folks, they offered a ton of helpful tips and tricks for having a successful experience. we made lifelong fruends and we cant wait to stay there again.

We had a great experience at this location. Our hosts were very welcoming and friendly. Their property and house are in a peaceful spot but not too far from the action. We would love to come back to this location again in the future.
