Great place for a long weekend with friends/family

Riverview Estate by Brophy is a great place to spend a long weekend with friends or family! The accommodations are clean and comfortable. Additionally there are plenty of activities to keep you occupied during your entire stay. Gale is very responsive and attentive to any needs that may arise. I recommend for anyone who is looking for a weekend getaway in the woods!

The Best wedding venue!

I am literally in tears right now as I start to even think about writing a review for this place! This is the most AMAZINGLY gorgeous hands down BEST estate/hotel/wedding venue in the world. I cannot say enough about how amazing our time here was. But I’m gonna try because I have read so many reviews for wedding venues and let me tell you the Truth (as every bride wants to know) about Brophy Estates.. when we first viewed the estate we met Debbie the sweetest nicest person we ever had give us a tour of anything lol (we saw Atleast 20venues) she took us to room after room and when u thought it was over hold on.. cuz it only gets better! There was so much room so much space for family, so many unique little trinkets or pictures everywhere you felt like you were at home. We saw what was being turned into a reception hall and it was empty at the time. Gale came by to meet us and we were sold right then and there she is the sweetest person but beyond that she told us what this hall would be with beautiful birch wood trees and lanterns from the ceiling... When we finally booked the venue Kristen was helpful answering questions for us. (Do you have a keruig for my mom?! Lol ) We were nervous when we got there about how it would look but gale did NOT disappoint.. it is truly amazing romantic and so perfect. The day before my wedding I was bridezilla running around with my DIY lanterns that I decided I didn’t like last minute.. to my surprise gale called me to wish me the best and heard in my voice I was not happy about my centerpieces she came by in 10 mins.. changed out my centerpieces for me and made me the happiest bride ever! I was in such awe at how perfect this staff is.. I called Debbie cuz the tv was not working the first morning (cuz of rain damn direct tv) but she and tony came by and immediately attended to every need and question we had!(Debbie and Tony are hysterical ask them about anything they will make your day with their fun stories)
My wedding day called for rain.. my fiancé’s dream was to have the wedding by the river and it was a-little wet..Walter (THE BEST) came with hay to make sure no one got wet and my husband could have the wedding of his dreams! We had some grandparents who couldn’t walk that far to the river site and Walter drove them down! We are so so thankful so appreciative of everything they did for our special day but not only that I feel like we made new friends and family!

Amazing Weekend! Wonderful Hosts!

Last weekend, the non-profit organization that I volunteer for hosted our 4th annual Healing of the Heart Retreat - a retreat for 25 women who have lost a child to congenital heart defects. We rented both the Riverview and Deer Ridge Estates and could not be more pleased with our experience and the superb service that we received while there. The properties are both beyond BREATHTAKING, and provided a serene escape for these women and those of us hosting this retreat. From our first contact with the property managers, through our close out of the weekend we were so impressed with how much effort this family and their employees put into making our stay special. We had the owners number on hand and were able to contact her with any questions throughout the weekend, and this truly made our task of hosting this retreat easier. Because we were hosting such a large group of women, and needed private beds for each person attending, we chose to rent both properties, which are just a short walk from each other. Each property has plenty of space to host large group gatherings, entertainment areas and lovely sleeping quarters for all of its guests. We could not be more pleased with our experience there, and the love and compassion that went into making our stay amazing. We will definitely be back to host our next retreat this fall!

Beautiful Property, Great for Groups

We booked a RiverView for a 2 day corporate retreat for 25 people. We had an amazing time, everything worked perfectly, and the overall quality of the property exceeded our expectations.

The layout of the property is a large house, a smaller cottage, and a large entertainment lodge all within about 100 feet of each other.

The house is beautiful with original artwork, hardwood floors, palatial master bedroom, and more bedrooms downstairs. There's also a sauna, hot tub, some exercise equipment (that none of us used) downstairs.

The entertainment lodge has a large kitchen (with 2 dishwashers), full size pool table, tv, enough room to seat 30+ people for dinner and also 4-5 bedrooms.

The cottage is smaller and I think 4-5 people from our group slept there. Though I didn't step foot in it, the members of the group who liked peace and quiet were thankful to be staying there.

When it comes to sleeping arrangements, there are more King, Queen, and Full size beds than there are Twin/Bunk. What that means is that if you have 25 or more people then you'll have 3 or more beds being shared.

I've booked at least 10 group houses for friends, corporate, and smaller trips. This property is by far the largest, nicest, and most well appointed. In terms of value - I looked at houses in the Hudson Valley, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey, and RiverView was far and away the best value I could find.

A couple of helpful tips - bring basics like olive oil, salt, pepper and other spices if you plan to cook. We also brought extra paper towels & TP (although it was provided), we did find that useful. Also there was no hand soap, that might have been an oversight on the owner, but we did bring our own.

Lastly - the in-ceiling stereo in the entertainment lodge was in the process of being rewired. Luckily we brought our own stereo & bluetooth speakers, if you like music I suggest you do the same.

Space for everyone!

RiverView Estate by Brophy was a great place for our Thanksgiving/Birthday celebration. It is incredibly spacious with more than enough room for everyone. Especially nice was the kitchen/great room where everyone gathered most days. Equally nice was the hot tub and fireplace in the other building, which were used very frequently. Gail and her team were beyond friendly and helpful, checking in during the holiday weekend to make sure we had everything we needed; you couldn't ask for nicer hosts! Just two heads up for those who are considering staying at RiverView: 1) the kitchens, while generous in size and in most cooking needs, is shy on hand towels, oven mitts, and pantry items, and 2) the buildings are cozy and welcoming, but aging. I mentioned the need of hand towels and oven mitts to Gail and this may be a non-issue for future guests. The age of the buildings did not affect comfort in any way, but added character and charm. I hope others will enjoy RiverView as we did!

Stunning

Riverview Estate was spectacular! We arrived fairly late on Friday night and were immediately greeted by a very welcoming groundskeeper. All three of the houses were among the nicest, well-kept houses I've ever been in, and Gale (the owner) was particularly friendly and ready to accommodate any needs we had. I would definitely stay here again, and will absolutely recommend it to others!
