Our stay at the Riverside Grande Lodge was amazing. Ten friends from high school celebrating turning 65 this year! The house was PERFECT for a group this size - the layout, the rooms, the fire pit and deck by the creek were all great. I contacted Brad a few times during our stay for questions and he was super responsive.
