We had business activities in the area, and were interested in an authentic north-woods lodging experience. I’ve gone canoeing and camping in the Boundary Waters many times and was looking forward to combining the best of two "worlds" -- the solitude, wildlife sightings, fresh air and beauty of the wilderness with a good bed in pleasant surroundings in nature.
The Reflections vacation home was immediately comfortable as home, with beautiful décor, spacious views of woods, rocks and water, full kitchen and bath, deck, and screen porch and heavenly beds. All the amenities we could have asked for, and then some.
The grounds and buildings are clean and cared for with attention to detail, and the design of the entire place is very thoughtfully planned and implemented to offer optimal comfort and access to the outdoors. It's a place dreams are made of.
When we arrived, we were greeted by our host, Steve, with a smile and some humor as well as a welcome brew and a story. And checking out, we found the staff preparing a craft activity for children, letting their parents have some time to themselves. Our hostess, Jane, was very gracious and efficient. They were always ready to accommodate our every request and offer suggestions.
I look forward to another opportunity to visit River Point and recommend the high-quality vacation experience and nature immersion. Next time, I’d like to take longer and utilize the on-site Ely Outfitters gear for some canoeing as well.
