Susan has the most beautiful spot for swimming, relaxing and enjoying an incredibly lovely and slow time with friends and loved one.

Spent Labor Day weekend at the River Haven and so grateful for Susan's flexibility around our stay and for the amazing river views just off the porch.

Place is great and would totally come again.

We had a lovely stay at Susan's place. It is just as the pictures show - beautiful, in nature, and near the house. The area is absolutely beautiful and the area is relatively unknown by tourists so it was a great experience.

We spent time hiking nearby and other days visiting the Gold Mine museum, as well as the hot springs. It was a very relaxing stay.

Susan was very responsive and a great host! I highly recommend staying here :)
