This is an upstairs apartment with a deck overlooking the river. So, you will need to be able to climb stairs. The first floor is a shop and a garage that is not used while guests are staying at Rivers rest. So it is very private (with locks) and you are in a separate building from my home.
Children do need to be supervised at all times because of the River Access. There is a Graco crib-bed if needed. Pets are allowed as long as your pet stays on your lap, if necessary, and remains off the furniture and beds. When you leave Rivers Rest for your daily adventures, it is appreciated if your pet goes with you.
