    The River Bend Lodge staff was exceptional; they were friendly, knowledgeable and warm. The service was exceptional and intimate. The location was perfect and the overall feeling of the lodge was rustic and refined.

    We stayed for only 1 night because our whole trip schedule was very tight, but we would have stayed a few more days to enjoy everything offered there. The service was excellent, the staff very friendly
