Testimonials from our Chalet Customers

Owen & Krista Penney - Paradise, Newfoundland

Chalet Rental

We are overwhelmed with our first stay at the Chalets. We loved the privacy it offered as well as having everything available inside the Chalet that you could possilby want. The warm cozy atmosphere was the perfect getaway. Thoroughly enjoyed the hot tub, and found the jacuzzi quite enjoyable also. We will definitely be back again, and are aiming to do the River Rafting in the summer. I have highly recommended this resort to friends and co - workers. As my wife said on the drive back " It is one of Newfoundlands Gems!"

Chalet Rental - Rafting Trip

I stayed at Riverfront Chalets on Sept 13th and did the Badger Chute Rafting the following day with my 9 year old son and a couple of friends. Everyone enjoyed the experience. The owners and guides were awesome making it a weekend we won't forget. We will definitely be returning in the spring/summer for rafting and might try to get out snowmobiling as well. Thanks for everything!!

The Carter & Norman Group

Chalet Rental - Rafting Trip

We had an amazing time at your beautiful chalet! Everything from the children catching frogs to the fire pit area was great! The rafting was so fun, even through the thunder, lightening and at times heavy rain. I think that made it more of an adventure actually. Our group had 3 boys ages 10, 9 and 6 and they had a blast as well. We will be back for sure, maybe next time for skidooing. Thanks a lot!!

Chalet Rental - Snowmobile Tour

MARCH 31st - APRIL 1st 2013

This was at least my 5th stay at Riverfront Chalets, but the 1st one with the goal of snowmobiling Central Newfoundland in mind. Paul (Owner/Operator) had mentioned to me before that Central Newfoundland has some great snowmobiling to offer and we should consider coming out for a tour sometime. We usually make the 4 hour drive to the West Coast for our sledding trips and never really took in much snowmobiling in Central Newfoundland, despite living here. Despite not so great snow conditions along the highway, Paul insisted that there was lots of snow in the Hodges Hill / Gaff areas, and terrain to offer a variety of riding. Let me tell you, he was right! There was loads of snow everywhere, on the trails, in the woods, on the bogs. We had to awesome days of riding with Paul. The first day he took us straight to the top of Hodges, and what a view! absolutely perfect day with a stunning view overlooking Central Newfoundland from 570 meters up. We could see all the way to the Gaff Topsails. Managed to get in a few hill climbs and then we were off to see some other areas. Paul took us to numerous areas to play around, whether it was snow covered bogs with powder drifts to bust, open hills to climb, back country chalet for lunch, or my highlight of the trip, making our own trail through the treed hillsides and valleys. There was so much snow in the woods that after one stuck I stepped off my sled and went past my waist in snow. Picking through the treeline, we even got to see a Moose making its own tracks through the forest right along side us.

After an awesome and satisfied day of riding, we got back to the chalet and BBQ'd up a great late supper then relaxed in the hot tub. Nothing better after a great day of riding. As mentioned in all other reviews here, the chalets are still as warm, cozy, and inviting as the first time I stayed here approximately 4 years ago and we all had a great sleep in preparation for our second day of riding.

The second day included a group of beginners who had never been on sleds before. Paul managed to get them up Hodges Hills as well to enjoy the views and then we spent the rest of the day covering a lot of territory, and enjoying the scenery. Paul was an excellent guide and really made the trip for us. There is so much we would have missed if we had tried to guide ourselves.

We all had a great time and will definitely be returning in the future for many more snowmobiling trips. The area more than surpassed our expectations and our only regret is not taking advantage of this opportunity earlier. It's a shame we only saw 4-5 sleds the entire 2 days but it also was good in a way since all the areas we traveled to were untouched and ready to be tore up.

We just returned from this trip and were already thinking about the next one. If you enjoy snowmobiling and the outdoors in general, you should give this a try. You won't regret it. Thanks for the awesome snowmobile trip Paul. See you next time.

Thanks again Paul,

Mark, Des, Andrew. Joe and I had the repeat pleasure of free riding with our friend Paul Rose, the owner of Riverfront and the Ambassador of snowmobiling in Central Newfoundland, truly a great Father and Son multi-generational experience that will not be forgotten. Having made the mandatory West Coast pilgrimage two weeks ago my sledding' Buddy Des and I asked each other why drive the extra kilometers when you can experience the greatest terrain you could ever ask to ride minutes from the best accommodations anywhere in Atlantic Canada. Listen to Paul's Blog his report on Snow Conditions are truly accurate, 8" of fresh spring powder today, the season is not done in Central wow!

Thanks from all of us.

Just came back from a weekend in the Chalets and snowmobile tour (Mar.15-17).
Had a great time!! Chalets were beautiful and very accomodating as usual. We've stayed there a couple of times before, but this was our first winter weekend. The snowmobile tour was great. We had some mechanical issues, but Paul and the others on the tour were very patient and helpful. My daughter celebrated her 19th birthday there with us. She rented one of Paul's machines and although it was a different experience for her she enjoyed it. Thanks to Paul for helping her out in the rough spots :) Although she's 19 it was still a bit nerve wrecking for me lol.
The hot-tub after a long day of riding was sooo nice.
Overall great experience, would highly recommend it!!

Just home from a weekend getaway with some friends at Riverfront Chalets. As all of our other visit's out to Paul and Joy's place the hospitatality was second to none. We have made many trips out so this weekend we did not partake in one of the tours but decided to explore around on our own. Like so many others say, the snow conditions near the highway are not an accurate indictaion of the awesome trails that surround Hodge's Hills!! We spent all Sautrday on snowmobile and the ride was fabulous. As Paul says in his blog we could always use more snow but the trail condtions are perfect for an all day run.
Hope its just as good or better for next weekend when I make the annual trip with my co-workers.

Chalet Rental - Snowmobile Tour

We arrived in Grandfalls January 21st, 2013 with high expectations of lots of snow , we booked the riverfront chalets and a snowmobile tour for 2 days . The conditions along the highway and in Grandfalls were very discouraging , Also we stopped into town to pick up supply's for our stay,and the local residents were encouraging us to go more west to find the snow as they thought the snowmobiling conditions in Grandfalls were horrible because of the amount of Snow in town , well let me tell you that DO NOT go by the conditions close to the highway or in the town of Grandfalls because Paul and the rest of the gang from riverfront chalets will bring you to the snow and let you have the time of your life , myself and my buddies were very thankful that we stuck it out and gave Riverftont Chalets a chance and never ventured on further to the west coast !

Karen Bursey - CBS, NL

Chalet Rental - Rafting Trip

We stayed at Riverfront Chalets during the Grand Falls Windsor Salmonfest 2012. The chalets we rented were spotless and the accommodations could not have been more comfortable. On Saturday prior to the concert we went on a rafting trip and had an excellent day on the river. The rafting guides were very knowledgeable and a whole lot of fun! We were a group of 10 people and everyone had a wonderful time during that weekend We are already booked to return next summer. I would highly recommend the Chalets and the Rafting Trip.

Dave - Deer Lake

Our family had a great time at the Riverfront Chalets. The chalets were clean and the owners Paul and Joy were very accommodating. Our initial reservation was for only one night but after after a very ebjoyable evening we opted to stay an additional night. We will be returning in the summer to take in the river rafting. I highly recommend Riverfront to all, you will not be disappointed.

Darrell Jenkins - Botwood

Chalet Rental - Snowmobile Tour

This was our third trip in two years and, once again, we had an awesome time. The idea of going ski-dooing seemed insane but Paul trailered our snowmobiles in Aspen Brook Road about ½ km and we hit snow! We dropped the machines and hit the trails. The riding was awesome with a nice variety of old roads, woods trails and ponds. It was hard to believe that there was so much snow in the back-country compared to what you see driving along the TCH. There was actually 3-4 inches of fresh powder with light flurries throughout the day

The day was not over when the snowmobiling was done. After supper, we enjoyed a relaxing soak in the hot-tub with the river flowing in the background - what a view! It was so nice that we went back for another soak around midnight.

Awesome trip - we are already looking at the calendar trying to figure out when we can go again!

Travis Benteau - River Front Chalets

Chalet Rental

First of all I have to say that the chalets are fabulous. I have to tell a little story about paul the owner. We had been on our own little adventure without a guide for the whole day and covered about 250kms of skidooing. Just before dark we relalized that we were not able to make it back to the chalet. So we called upon paul at the chalet. We had asked him if he would come to retrieve us. Without a second thought he said yes. He dug his double trailer out of the snow bank and hooked it up to his own truck and drove over an hour to baie vert jcn where he took 3 sleds and the 6 of us in his truck. We arrived back at the chalet around midnight. On the way back he had many stories to tell that were very interesting. I guess he has another story to tell someone else now. I would and the 5 other people with me would recommened staying here again. The service and hospitality is by far the BEST I have ever recieved. The view from the chalet is amazing. The only downfall about River Front Chalets is that I had to leave after spending 3 days there.

Chalet Rental - Snowmobile Tour

We all had a wonderful experience on our two day skidoo expedition - Feb. 20 & 21st, 2012. The accomadations at the chalet were more than had been advertized & more than what we expected. Paul & Joy were perfect hosts, very professional, but friendly. During the morning of day one, two more skidoos - a family of four - joined us on our trip. We traveled the Hodges Hill Guided Tour and we had a delicious hot meal at Paul's back country cabin. It was our choice to have the prepared meal inside or outdoors. On the second day, we spent 7 1/2 hours exploring back country trails, lakes, and Miller Town Junction. At the time the groomed trails were not overly favorable (many yes ma'ms). However our experienced tour guide, Paul, guided us through unbeaten trails and new snow. At the half way point during our trip we had a open fire and a boil up and again it was our choice of an inside or outside lunch. We all enjoyed the trip more than we ever imagined and we are looking very forward to doing it again in 2013.

Chalet Rental - Snowmobile Tour

Three terrific days of snowmobiling fun, February 5-8, 2012. Plenty of snow, some fresh powder, blue sky and sunshine during the day and the amazing full moon rising on the trip back to the chalets. A run to remember! Paul went above and beyond with providing excellent guiding service, tailored to the experience and abilities of his riders. His knowledge of the region is impressive and we appreciated that he took forestry roads and trails to avoid the un-groomed and extremely rough railbed. And of course it's always good to soothe the tired body in the hot tub! We are looking forward to a return trip this season with our adult kids from Nova Scotia. Always a great time at Riverfront Chalets! Thanks Paul and Joy!

After staying and sledding twice already at River Front Chalets, I finally got to enjoy them with my wife who was very happy and impressed with her stay. We booked 2 nights in April not expecting to do any sledding but much to our surprise Paul informed us he would be able to get us in to Hodges Hill for a day on the sled! Our sled is broken but no worries as Paul and Joy had a great quality rental available that was well equipped with a good track able to handle the back country conditions we experienced. We were absolutely thrilled to get one more ride on skidoo this season. And by the looks of the snow in there a few days ago there is lots of time for another few runs! Paul and Joy have some of the best snowmobiling in NL right in their own backyard! I really enjoyed the fact that for all 5 of the days I have spent so far in the country with Paul on the sleds I could count the number of other sleds I hae seen on just one pretty much have it to yourself to enjoy with no crowds!!! Can't recommend River Front Chalets enough....this is definitly our favourite getaway destination in NL!!! See you again soon Paul and Joy!

Duane & Tonya - St. John's, NL

Chalet Rental - Snowmobile Tour

Thanks Paul & Joy for a great weekend of skidooing this past weekend (April 9 & 10, 2011). Hard to believe there is still so much snow up there, when there is so little on the Avalon. Hodge's Hill area & Gaff Topsails look good until May! Spring snow conditions are making for good traction (and few stucks) all the way to the summits on Hodge's.

The beauty of this mountain is its variety of slopes, everyone from beginners to extreme sledders can enjoy and challenge themselves amongst the open glades, or in the tighter treed Burandt styled climbs. Paul can show you some awesome back country tracks that circle the mountain in a series of wicked tree lined climbs and descents. Thanks again for the hospitality, hope to get back soon!

I visited riverfront along with some friends on 27-Mar-2011. Paul gave us a fabulous tour around Hodge's Hill and made sure we had a lot of fun. It was hard to believe that snow conditions could be so good for the end of March! Looking forward to the next trip already and would love to get back to enjoy the Gaff Topsails in April. By the way, you won't find better accomodations and beautiful scenery to help perfect your vacation!

Jay & Heather Pittman - Western Bay

Chalet Rental - Snowmobile Tour

Don't know how you guys managed to pull it off, but there was better snow conditions this weekend (Mar 25-27) than we had the last 2 times we were out this winter (the previous 2 times had excellent snow as well).....lots of powder with a good solid base underneath meant we could go anywhere, absolutely perfect for going off trail and into the woods for a bit of fun. Based on what we saw this weekend, I would imagine you should have another 3 solid weeks (or more) of excellent sledding, now to just figure out a way to make it back for one last sledding trip before its all gone. And if we don't manage to get back this winter, we will be seeing you this summer for a ride down the exploits!!!
Thanks again Paul, Joy, Heidi & Jack for your excellent hospitality!

John Cox - St. John's

Chalet Rental - Snowmobile Tour

Visited riverfront on 27-Mar-11 and went on the Hodges Hills Tour with Paul. Snow conditions were amazing. There was lots of powder but did not get stuck much at all (perfect amount). Paul was an excellent guide and was able to sense our level of skill. He adjusted the tour as we went to ensure we had maximum fun. The tour offered several different styles of riding that kept our interest at a peak. Also, accommodations were the best I have ever seen for a chalet.

Chalet Rental - Rafting Trip

We had an awesome weekend at your resort. The chalets are next to none and the rafting trip was the greatest and of course your dogs were the stars of the weekend. Our girls fell immediately in love with them! They are already planning for our next visit to bring some extra treats for them. We can't wait to the rafting again next summer. Our guides Paul and Geoff were very experienced and made the trip that much more enjoyable. Our girls, Jonnie and Jaimie had a ball and are looking forward to our upcoming winter vacation with you guys. For the past 20 years we have vacationed outside of Canada for our annual month long vacation and thankfully this year our girls, who have had 8 trips outside of Newfoundland, have decided they would like to do our vacationing at home this upcoming, vacation year. This past weekend was a taste of vacationing here at home, other than camping during the summer, and it was the best. We have travelled to numerous destinations with our girls who are 9 and 10 years old and have done many adventure tours on our holidays and they said that this was one of the best. Thanks again and my hat goes off to you guys and your beautiful resort. Can't wait for the next visit and adventure. Say hi and give a treat to Nanook and Nekeah for us!

My family rented two chalets and went on the rafting trip for a weekend and loved it! The chalets were beautiful and we loved the jacuzzi and fire spot, we literally stayed up until dawn we had that much fun. The rafting trip was extraordinary! our guide was one of the nicest people I have met and I would love to go on a trip like that again. Even though I fell off while riding the bull I loved it, I recommend this place to everyone, if you want to have a exciting and fun weekend you should definitely come here.

The chalets were warm and inviting with a beautiful view of the Exploits. Saturday my husband went off on a Guided tour which included a delicious bowl of home made soup. What more could you want!

Thanks for a great weekend Joy, Paul, Erica and Jason, can't wait to return this summer to check out the white water rafting.

My second experience with Rafting Newfoundland came near the end of the Fleetwood Mac tribute tour. After over a week of travel and hotels we arrived at the Riverfront Chalets about three in the afternoon. It was warm for April and although the river was still frozen the gang took advantage of the outdoor hottub! We were thrilled to be there just as the river was about to open up from the winter freeze. That night we had our first home cooked meal in over a week and Paul lit a fire down by the river. Next day before soundcheck we snowshoed up to the second falls on Leech Brook. That river was in full spring flush and was quite the sight. Along the way we caught sight of a crow chasing a bald eagle away from a fox skeleton - not a familiar sight to a townie. It was very hard to go back on the road the next day. The new Chalets were totally excellent - three of us to a cabin was more than comfortable and everything from the cooking utensils to the linens and towels were first rate. And right outside the window all of nature's glory. My first experience with Paul and Joy came on my sixtieth birthday - my "surprise" gift was rafting down the Exploits. It was the perfect day - 32 degrees and full summer sun. I had the time of my life - I've always been a little bit obsessed with rivers and the Exploits is the grandaddy of them all. I had such a great day that I now figure a day on the Exploits with Paul and Joy will have to be an annual event. And even though we never did get to see "the ice crack and the river rush/ like a prisoner about to escape" if I may quote Ron Hynes, I think the spring break-up on the Exploits will be another event on my annual calendar. Paul was good enough to send pictures when the ice finally did give way. I tell everybody I run into about the rafting, chalets and great hospitality I enjoyed at Rafting NL. For me it's a new home away from home. `The Riverfront Chalets at Aspen Brook are truly the Jewel of the Exploits.......`

Chalet Rental - Snowmobile Tour

Paul and Joy were our hosts for a most enjoyable weekend snowmobiling in Central Newfoundland. The first day we conquered Hodges Hills and day two was a tour across the Gaff Topsails. We were pleased to get great snow conditions for the end of March and even saw a caribou herd on the Gaff. Paul showed us some great riding places such as Mary March Brook that could be a very interesting play spot for next season. The accommodations were 10 out of 10. The new chalets are warm and welcoming with all you need for a perfect stay. From the Jacuzzi tub to the relaxing sofas and a fully equipped kitchen and BBQ, each chalet is ideal to prepare a great meal. And to top is all off, the hot tub overlooking the Exploits River is an amazing way to unwind after a day of great snowmobiling. Paul and Joy’s tours and accommodation are second to none. The tour to Hodges Hills and the Gaff topsails is definitely one of the top three snowmobile destinations in Central NL. I can’t wait to go back. Thanks Paul and Joy for a great trip.

Chalet Rental - Rafting Trip

Day 7 of our Newfoundland honeymoon, and what an eventful day it was! River rafting with Paul and Mike from Badger down to the Riverfront Chalets which was our home away from home for the night. The rafting was great, it never got boring or "tour like". With every change in water formation, there was something new and exciting. There was supposed to be a water fight between the two rafts, but it seemed that our raft was every man for himself! It didn't take long before the first victim went overboard. By the end of the trip everyone was in the water on occasion, some more than others of course. Along with the rafting there was loads of swimming, including this one place in particular. Just before lunch we stopped off at a great little swimming spot, where you could jump in and the current would pull around in one big circle. Paul and Mike knew the river like the back of their hand. The lunch was fantastic! Wouldn't have packed it any better ourselves. We mixed up the boat crews a little bit and got a chance to do some surfing in the rafts, and all I can say is "ride the bull!". As if the rafting wasn't enough, the chalets are simply amazing! Hardwood, and ceramic throughout. Full kitchen with great appliances, two bedrooms, satellite, DVD player, bbq on the deck. Hottub, boot dryer, and did I mention Jacuzzi?! The mattresses are so comfortable, and there is so much natural light. On top of it all, you don't even need to call CAA if you lock your keys in the car, Paul and Mike had it covered. Thanks Guys! Should be 5 star!

Hi Paul! Have to say that the six of us had just the absolute best time ever this past weekend at your place! The chalets were perfect and the river tour was the most fun we've had in a long, long time! LOVE the hot tub and adore your beautiful dogs. You, Joy and Mike are perfect hosts and guides and we all felt so safe during the trip. Well all except Dana that is but that just couldn't be helped...! Hopefully, you'll see us and at least one of our kids before the summer's through for another day on the water! Thanks so much for a great, great weekend!

What a wonderful place to relax. From the moment we walked in the chalet, it was great. It was hard to even leave and go outside for awhile. Just wanted to enjoy it but the scenery outside was also nice. Your dogs became our friends. They were so gentle. We didn't want to leave this place. We have told many people about it so I think they will be staying there in the future. We will see you again for sure. Great, great spot you have. Thank-you for a lovely weekend.

What a lovely stay at your chalets! They were beautiful, clean, quiet, and provided a great place to unwind from all of our traveling. The snowshoe hike up to the falls was was seeing the Bald Eagle and mink on the railbed... I can't wait to bring my family back for some rafting later this summer. All the best!

Hi Paul: It was indeed a pleasure staying with you at the chalets. Having met you, Joy and Dorothy made it all the more special, after all, it's people who make the difference and warming up to you folks was not difficult. Now, having stayed with you once I'm sure we're going to look forward to staying with you again as the chalets make it ever so comfortable. The surroundings made our stay easy, the outdoors is by far the most preferable environment for any one of us and being so much in the country, alongside the river made it special. For Wayne and I at least, pursuing a few hares made it fun, and for Byron looking for rail road ties made it profitable. I know Ray enjoyed his 2 hour walks along the rail bed. Seeing so much wildlife was a bonus. A Goshawk got one of our rabbits one morning and that was worth seeing. You have grey owls too! The bald eagle make daily rounds and still there were enough hares that I was seeing 6 or more a day. Ruffed Grouse were plenty, other bird sightings included all the regulars and if you wanted to simply excite bird watchers you'd be able to run a business on that. The TV got turned on only to watch a DVD after our performances in the late night, other than that the big windows in the chalets were our view of the world for a week and the channel never had to be changed. It was always interesting. By now you might realize that we are all inclined to be outdoor enthusiasts and perhaps we may avail of your rafting or kayaking services come summer, we'd love to see the place in full summer bloom. I personally got a great break in staying at the guide cabin. I'm thinking to myself that it's a great model on which to erect one similar somewhere, I don't know where yet but I'd love to have that thing up in the country behind my house. I think my wife would put me on the missing persons list. Your daughter was singing "I'm the king of the castle" standing on a stone outside your house one day when I dropped over for something, anyway, your children will have a lovely spot in which to grow up. King of the castle is appropriate. Your two dogs are great company as well. That's the thing about dogs which are allowed to be themselves, they become ever so much more enjoyable. Yours are secure and independant, full of personality and easily befriended. I'd always want animals like these around. We'll do what we can to promote your business and spread the word. If you can use any of this note as a testimonial, go ahead. I don't mind a bit. Well see you next time we're doing shows regardless. Thanks again.

We did the river rafting tour with Rafting Newfoundland last summer and had a blast. It was awesome. When we found out the chalets were open we couldn’t wait to try them out. We were looking for a nice, relaxing, stress-free place to unwind and we definitely found it. The chalets are absolutely beautiful with everything you could possibly need at your fingertips. The quality is top notch. The service was second to none. Paul and Joy certainly catered to all our needs and then some. They even invited us to a fire by the riverside. We opted for a ride in the UTV which we thoroughly enjoyed….even saw a hawk and way too many rabbits to count. We absolutely loved the hot tub…it was the icing on the cake and catapulted the 4 1/2 star into a 5 star experience. We’d definitely recommend this place to anyone and will be back for sure. Whether you want to just relax or if you have a more adventurous spirit and want to enjoy the great outdoors, this is the spot for you!

Paul/Mike, we had a freakin' blast yesterday with you guys...we're still drying out today. Look forward to returning soon but I will have the art of marshmallow roasting conquered first for the fire pit. Thanks for a fantastic time!

Paul, Joy, Mike and Ella, We wanted to let you know what a wonderful time we had on the rafting tour as well as the stay at the Chalets. Our Newfoundland experience was one of the best due to the fact that the hospitality is second to none. There were eight of us and we stayed in two Chalets (I would definitly give them a five star). We have travelled to places such as Cuba, Mexico, Jamicia and we always plan some kind of adventure while there, I would have to say that our rafting adventure was the most fun that we have ever had. In fact our whole vacation to Newfoundland was just as much fun as any of our southern vacations!!! Thanks for the memories! I would highly recommend it to anyone!

Thank you again for a fantastic couple of days !! You guys have got some great ideas and your place is absolutely the best vacation spot I've been in so far here on the rock, or the maritimes actually. And when I think about it, I enjoyed it even more than that time I went donkey riding through the hills in Cyprus to an old monastery. Seriously, you guys have a great thing going on and your hard work and dedication definitely shows that you love what you do. It was like going home to relax for a few days and you definitely don't get that at a lot of places. And besides enjoying the toilet paper, I think that your knowledge, attitude and the way you make people feel so at ease is bang on. Keep doing what your doing, cause you definitely got the right stuff.

Paul and Joy - Thanks for a relaxing few days. The chalets are awesome and were a perfect getaway for us. So close to home yet it seemed like we were in another part of the world! Keep the hot tub warm, we'll be back soon!

Dave and I stayed at the Riverview Chalets this past weekend. A wonderful young couple, with a huge vision, most of which they have already attained. Once the landscaping is finished this place will be perfect. The chalets are remarkable for their quality, the beds are super! The young couple are very, very friendly and accomodating. They let us book in early as we had to do some business in Grand Falls. The hottub is great! In the evening, Joy brought us over some movies to watch, which was very kind of her to do! Thanks for that! The location of this place is great for all seasons! Well done! We were too late in-between seasons to take in any outdoor activities but perhaps we will try the rafting next summer. We highly recommend these chalets! Extremely well-equipped! Well done! It is wonderful to see young people with such a vision! Good luck!

My wife and I spent a night at the chalets and we were amazed at how beautiful they are. There simply is nothing in Central Newfoundland that remotely compares to them. The comfort, the beauty, the privacy, and the convenience are matched by none. Of all the places we have ever been, and that includes the Dominican Republic, these chalets are the cream of the crop. You'll be hard pressed to find another place quite like them. A night spent here will be a night you won't want to forget!

There are many words to describe our rafting adventure: Fun, relaxing, breath-taking scenery. The chalets are beautiful and when all the landscaping is finished everything will look just perfect. We spent a relaxing Friday night with a BBQ and a fire outside. We spent Saturday rafting and it was a blast. Lot's of fun topped off with a soak in the hot-tub that night. Joy and Paul, you offer a first class resort. See you next year....

Just wanted to leave a note saying again (for the 25th time) what a wonderful experience we had at your Chalet. The lodging was second to none and the hospitality offered us by you guys made us feel like we were visiting family. The atmosphere surrounding the whole place made it easy for us to just relax and enjoy the sights and sounds while forgetting the day to day stresses. We have decided it not an "if" we will be visiting you guys again....its a "when". Take care and keep up the excellent work.

We just returned from the best trip we ever had with our group of friends..... We had the most beautiful chalets with a great view of the frozen river...the outdoor hot tub was just out of this world!! We all went on a guided tour that was awesome...the view from Hodge's Hill's was spectacular...Paul took a great group photo that I'm sure will hit the web site soon... Thanks to the staff who did a great job....I'm certain that you will have some returning costumers in the near future...Thanks again for a wonderful place to gather with a great group of friends.... I wish everyone could add this trip to their list of places to go!!

Awesome weekend! First class chalets and excellent services. The snowmobile tour was fantastic packed with scenic trails and wildlife. Joy had prepared a homemade meal which Paul warmed up for us when we stopped for lunch. Paul catered to our every need and made sure our ride was enjoyable and safe. When we got home, the hot-tub was unbelievable - after all day on the trail, a soak in the tub eliminated all the aches & pains. Overall, a fabulous getaway ... we are already booked for another snowmobile trip next winter AND are looking forward to our first rafting trip in August as well.

I didn't think I was religious, until I stayed at the Riverfront Chalets. Now I KNOW there's a HEAVEN! It sits on the banks of the Exploits River and Paul & Joy Rose are the keepers of our very own EDEN. Thanks Paul & Joy for recognizing the beauty that already exists, right under our noses! You do Central Newfoundland proud.

Chalet Rental - Rafting Trip

Our day started on the Exploits River. The water was high, the waves were big, the adrenaline was rushing! As we reached our take out point we began to anticipate the night ahead. We were heading to the 4 ½ star chalets at Riverfront Cottages. As we rode down the driveway towards our home for the night, the sense of invigorating adventure of the days previous experience, quickly gave way to an atmosphere of relaxation. The luxurious cabins were such a welcome site, but what now? Hot tub? Campfire? Or explore a little with a stroll along the old railbed, past brooks, and quaint ponds. Further adventure will have to wait! We opt for a nice soothing soak in the jacuzzi, then a BBQ and refreshments with friends, all while taking in the majestic scenery from the deck overlooking the river. The friendly resident pooches keep us company while we sit back and take it all in. Later in the night we all gather round the campfire. Out come the guitars, and Paul plays a mean drum! Who could ask for more? I wake the next day to realize i pulled off a 9 hr unbroken sleep. The comfy beds make it hard to pull myself out of my slumber, but when the forest fresh breeze blows gently over my face, the guilt gets to me. OK, i'm up already! We finish off our vacation with a ATV ride along the Trans Canada Trail. Wish we had more time to explore, the trails and woods roads seem to go for miles in every direction. But that gives us reason to time we'll stay longer! When staying here, be sure to take in the river rafting. A fun filled day with good food, great people, and lots of opportunity to get some great photos to show off to your not so fortunate friends. Thanks Paul and Joy, looking forward to our next trip!

Belatedly we are writing to let you know how wonderful our trip was and how much we enjoyed staying in the Chalet. We stayed in March when the snow was still on the ground. You took us snowmobiling and snow-shoeing and we had a fabulous time. We loved the chalet and will be back very soon. Your knowledge of the local area and the time you spent with us made our trip very memorable. Thank you Paul and Joy and see you again real soon - we'll be back before you know it for the summer season.

My family and I stayed at these beautiful Chalets in May. Had a great time. Our hosts were great and the chalets were beautiful and had everything we needed. Will go back in the future and recommend to anybody that has the opportunity.

Stayed at the chalets on a business trip for 4 nights. Wonderful spot-wireless internet, two seperate rooms which made it more economical than a hotel and a hut tub! What more could be needed. The scenery and people were fabulous, the accomodations were outstanding. My only regret - I didn't have time to go rafting. Oh well, there's always the next trip! Thanks Paul & Joy, you made a business trip feel like a vacation!

I had a great time both times I've stayed here so far this summer. Hospitality is great, the scenery is excellent, and the chalets are second to none. We had a camp fire each time I stayed here with guitars and drums and had a fun time. Awesome place...will be going back for sure.

We have been staying at the chalets for a couple of visits this summer, and have loved every aspect of the trip. The atmosphere is amazing, the chalets are beautiful, and the hospitality of both owners makes you feel right at home. Two of the kindest people I have ever met, and that goes a long way when travelling away from home. Evenings on the river are beautiful, the scenery, bbq, and hot tub give you a little taste of heaven. The rafting trip is amazing, and Paul and Mike are excellent guides and their professionalism gives you the security to really get the most out of your trip. I highly recommend staying here and would give the overall rating of 5 stars!!!
