Guestbook comments from the manager

I loved my stay at River’s Edge and would recommend it to a family for a great vacation. The town of Cuchara is so quaint and the people are very friendly. Two good places to eat in town.

Enchanting, fully equipped, spacious, delightful

  • 5 of 5

Family reunion. My sister and I had never gotten all of our children and grandchildren together. Her son & daughter, their spouses, and their 3 children. My two daughters, theirs spouses, and their 5 children. Plenty of room for everyone. A shallow creek where even the smaller children could safely play. Lovely rooms, and plenty of bathrooms. Fully equipped kitchen. We hiked, went horseback riding, played miniature golf, fished, and had plenty of time for card games. Loved it.

We could not have had a better Christmas vacation! River's Edge was the perfect place for our family of 15 to spend Christmas together.

Great place for a large family gathering.

  • 4 of 5

The house is in a good location. In some of the bedrooms, the windows can be opened to hear the sound of the river, and enjoy the cool air, all night. (July vacation) Plenty of room for our large group. The kids had a great time. The little town of Cuchara is so cute, and the older kids were able to go to the stores by themselves with a few dollars, and have fun. Mini-golf right across the street. Very good kitchen. The house is not perfectly wheelchair accessible--if you are concerned about that, you should discuss it with the owner (who was very easy to contact.) Nice firepit outside for S'mores. Pretty easy drive from Texas.

Location was great

  • 4 of 5

We loved the location and the size of the house for our group and the purpose of our stay, which was a wedding. The deck and firepit by the river was constantly calling our name. This home has an attached apartment with one bathroom and 2 bedrooms. The apartment is very old, I'm talking very old building. While unique and charming, It lacks some of the modern day features, like electrical outlets and switches to turn on lights. The lights are turnd on by a chain that you pull....see, old but unique. The worst thing in the arpartment was that the mirrors are so old that they are cloudy. And with the already poor lighting, putting on makeup was a challenge! This apartment is only 2 steps up from the main floor. The bathroom was small and there was no counter space in the bathroom, however they did have 2 desk/makeup tables in the living areas. Tub/shower combo. In the main section of the house, it is more up to date. All of the bedrooms did not have a private bath. For those that cann't do stairs, the main level has 2 nice bedrooms that share a bathroom. Upstairs, had 2 nice bedrooms that have private bathrooms. Upstairs also had a bedroom that had a set of steps that led to a private loft which had 2 beds. The loft and it's attached bedroom shared a unusal bathroom. This bathroom had the shower behind one door on the left of the steps to the loft. And behind a door on the right was the toilet and sink.

The home did not have hair dryers, at least we did not find any. We did not take hairdryers, so getting ready for the wedding was stressful! Management brought two hairdryers the next day, but was to late for us.

While looking out the window in the apartment about 4:40 AM, a fox walked past the window on the sidewalk. This town is great!

Owner's Response: I hope your family wedding was fantastic. I apologize to you for not having a hairdryer in the house. Honestly people take them and we sometimes the cleaning staff oversee if they are all missing. I realize this was very stressful. The cabin/apartment was built in the 20s and for an old cabin it is clean an charming. This was a time before people had to have big bathrooms and were happy to have moved from the outhouse, to indoor plumbing. We have chose to keep the old mirrors in the living room and bedroom. They are surrounded with rope and have a look we like. These mirrors have pull chain lights above them. I personally hung two new mirrors in the bathroom a few years ago, so seeing your self clear is no problem in the bathroom. The modern addition was built to be a bed and breakfast and the owner lived in the attached cabin for years. We now operate it as a vacation rental and people love it and build lasting memories here at River's Edge.
