I had such a splendid stay here at River Haven! My host, Susan, was a delight to spend time with while I was here. I ventured here by myself and was the only guest during my stay. Susan showed me the property, we sat around and drank tea in the garden, laughed at jokes and enjoyed the scenic river below or would gaze up at the amazing mountain peak that was visible from the property.

There was a kitchen area in the house that I was able to use, in which I made some asparagus, tomatoes, and mushrooms. The windows in the house are kept open during the day and the cool air just flows in and out. It is such a homey and cozy feel to the house, just like being back at home!

Outside, there is a lovely garden area, trails that lead to the river and one lookout point, as well as the tents where you get to sleep in a comfy bed out in nature! I stayed in the Angel tent and it got down to maybe the high 40s that night, but I stayed warm and wasn't cold at all. There was a coffee pot available for use in the kitchen, so the next morning I made coffee and sat down on the couch in the angel tent area just to relax and wake up. Later going down to the river below and listening to the water and watching the world wake up. The water is clear and beautiful and it's a very secluded spot. If it wasn't so cold, I would have gone swimming in it!!

Susan said she gets a lot of hikers coming in to stay from the Pacific Crest Trail - besides the outdoor tents, she has indoor rooms available that are equally as comforting and cozy. There are many spots for sitting and eating or visiting with friends, even a cool spot you can walk to that overlooks the river and has a comfy couch. She has showers and toilets available for both indoor and outdoor staying guests. For a fee, you can also do your laundry here. All in all, this is a wonderful little getaway spot for friends and family alike.

Thank you Katie. I enjoyed your presence on my property and from the minute you got here. You are warm, cheerful, sincere and very comfortable to be around. I trusted your intuition on taking quality photos as you are quite professional. May you continue to enjoy your travels as you are being of service to others. You are real asset to Hip camp.
