This house is so uniquely beautiful. You have to see it to believe it. I thought the photos were great but it was even better in person! The hosts were attentive and kind to us.

We had a wonderful time, nothing like enjoying a glass of wine with friends by the fire place while watching the stream flow under you. The Bridge House!!!

Loved the patio overlooking the river. There is plenty of space to sleep, and there is plenty of parking. The management is great and really helpful. We will be back!
