Beautiful & Privateî™ î™ 

1650 Bodoit Rd, Hancock, NY, 13783, United States (360686)

Date of Stay: July 30, 2011

Spent a week here with family & friends and had a wonderful time. We rented both the main house and the 2 bedroom with the great room. It is so beautiful, the view from the deck is amazing. Very quite & private. The river is real close by so we did some fishing and canoeing, lots of trails for 4-wheeling and very kid friendly. Pool was great and the on site caretakers were very helpful for all our needs. Would recommend this location to anyone wanting a relaxing private vacation and we plan on spending time here again next year.

We stayed for a long weekend with our ski buddies for a spring fling. We went hiking, swimming, fishing, played pool and had a fantastic time. The place was immaculate, the staff was professional and attentive to all our needs the owner was warm and a great host. The food was like dining at a 5 star restaurant. This estate felt like we were skiing at Aspen and had all the extra perks without having to fly anywhere just a short drive from NYC. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants a wonderful experience. I will definitely go back at least once a year.

Our 3 families, including the kids stayed in the 5 bedroom main house as well as the entertainment house with 2 bedrooms for 5 days. It is hard to describe how wonderful and magical this place is. You simply will not believe it until you are here. It is ideal for families, large groups, corporate functions etc. We spent our time on ATV's, fishing on the river, relaxing, enjoying the magnificent views, night grilling and making S'mores by the fire pit. It was too cold to go in the pool but it looked very inviting. Can't wait for next time. The owner was a pleasure to work with and answered all of our questions. The on-site staff was available whenever needed. They were polite, friendly and knew how to make you feel at home. We cannot imagine there are many places out there like this! Whoever is lucky enough to stay here, it will meet and exceed your expectations! We cannot wait to book our next vacation. Miss it already!!!

Will highly recommend it

Word cannot capture how awesome this place is. Gale has put together an estate that provides the guest with an unparalleled experience. Jason and his staff was amazing and really added significant value to our stay. I rented Gale's Riverview estate for my wife's 50th birthday. My children and I were joined by 24 of our family and closest friends. Within 1 hour of everyone showing up, we decided we were going to make this a yearly event. It's just that incredible. The main house is opulent and enormous. There are too many amenities to name them. The guest house is spacious and very clean. The Entertainment lodge is beyond belief! We were 30 people and we were lost in there. You can't imagine how huge this estate is! It will take us many stays to really appreciate everything. The hiking trail is well maintaied and challenging. The River front of the property is picturesque and the view of the pasture and the mountains from the main house's enormous rear covered deck is breathtaking. Gale was great to work with and Jason was a real concierge as well as a terrific propery manager. We really cannot wait to return and all our family and friends feel the same way.

This place was great for a family Thanksgiving. My family of 23 stayed in the Main House and the Entertainment House and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The manager, Jason, was readily available for anything we needed. He was very kind and helpful. It was great having a workout room, a pool table, and enough space to get together. The views were spectacular as well. Thank you again, Jason!!

Perfect house and setting for a guys trip (15 of us). Plenty of areas for the group to congregate throughout the houses and grounds. Great hiking on the property, great vistas from the main house back deck and multiple fire pits to hang around at night. Perfect for a group of guys getting out of NYC for the wknd. House manager is extremely helpful and friendly. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for an upstate house rental that can accommodate a large group.

My extended family, 21 in all, including 4 young children (and two small dogs), recently returned from a glorious stay at Riverview Estates. The accomodations and the property were beyond our expectations and the friendliness and service provided by Jason and his staff was superb.The views from the deck of the Main House was both soothing and spectacular. The children loved the pool. The multiple kitchens and large outdoor grill allowed for easy preparation of the never-ending feasts for the hungry and, after the children were put to bed, the Entertainment Lodge and fire pit(s) provided relaxing venues to end the day. Simply put, wonderful place to enjoy with family and friends.

Annual family reunion vacation

1650 Bodoit Rd, Hancock, NY, 13783, United States (360686)

Date of Stay: August 9, 2013

My family of approximately two dozen people who visited for varying dates and durations during our reunion week at Riverview Estates are in unanimous agreement that the accommodations and facilities are perfect for our needs so we have already booked for the next two years! We thoroughly enjoyed swimming, jacuzzi, sauna, hiking, biking, cooking, billiards, chess, movies and relaxing. The estate is very spacious and the pictures are quite accurate and current. There are so many decks, porches and comfy couches I don't think we even used them all. The location is definitely remote but there was enough to do on premises that no one was ever bored. For an outing I highly recommend the Woodstock museum which is only 40 minutes away. Jason, the general manager, is both attentive and personable and I look forward to visiting with him again next year!

My family and a close group of the employees from our company stayed at the resort for a holiday getaway. I would like to start by saying that not only did the resort accommodate our specialized group of family and employees, but it also allowed for plenty of privacy amongst the entire group. The 3 homes that all sit right close together allowed for each group to go their separate ways, but also to join in together for nice holiday times. This is a magical place to share a holiday, and I am sure we will be back to enjoy more time here, not only for holidays, but for other corporate gatherings. My wife and I have also been discussing coming to the resort in the summer for a family reunion. The ideas of gatherings are endless. I can see this as a great winter getaway from the hustle and bustle that the world surrounds us in. This place comes highly recommended by my family and my employees alike.

We had a lovely weekend retreat at this estate. We had high expectations which were exceeded. You cross a charming one lane bridge just prior to arrival. The owner Gale was fabulous and welcoming. She really made us feel at home. Her staff was readily accessible and nearby 24/7 to address any concerns. We choose to come on a cold and icy weekend, and their concern for our safety was very genuine and I appreciated that. They carefully plowed the driveways and left us large bags of salt should we have needed. We chose to rent all three houses since we had a large group. We could easily have gone on an adventurous winter outing but we opted to spend our entire time on the estate playing roulette and billiards, sitting in the jacuzzi, and sipping warm drinks on the amazing deck while enjoying the beautiful view. The bed in the master suite was very comfortable. The kitchens were all large and usable. We made use of the grill outside to cook a feast on the last day. It was a perfect getaway from NYC. Upon my return to the concrete jungle I totally missed the high ceilings, fireplaces, clean air and breathtaking surroundings.

We stayed with 15 friends for a weekend retreat away from the big city and had enough room and activities to thoroughly enjoy the weekend. The property is absolutely clean and well-maintained. The owner was quick to respond to all questions and concerns. I would definitely recommend this place to friends and relatives.

It takes me a long time to select a rental property for my group trips. Riverview by Brophy was a definite payoff for my labor. The property is amazing. All three houses are in excellent shape and boast more beauty than the pictures can show. The entire staff is extremely helpful and timely. I had a group of young professionals, ages 21-36 attend. Most did not know each other but the space allowed for friendships to grow during our weekend. I will definitely recommend the space and would love to return! Thank you guys, Reggie

Absolutely fantastic home

1650 Bodoit Rd, Hancock, NY, 13783, United States (360686)

Date of Stay: February 14, 2014

We are a group of 7 couples who are 30 years old but have been renting homes together in the Catskills, Poconos and Vermont for nearly 10 years. The property was exactly as advertised and the whole group loved the home. The staff was really helpful and truly wants your stay to be worry-free. The best part of the home is the entertainment lodge - a large open room with a big kitchen, a pool table, big screen TV and ample seating. It is rare to find a home where our whole group can hang out together rather than being segmented in multiple smaller homes like we have had to do in previous homes. We like cooking all our meals and because the kitchen was in the entertainment lodge the folks who volunteered for cooking duty were not isolated while preparing all the food but instead able to hang out with the rest of the group the entire time. The bedrooms were ample and spacious. In years past we always had a tough time finding a home that fits our group size and this place really fits the bill. I would absolutely recommend it to other families or groups - just don't steal it from us next President's day weekend!

Date of Stay: June 6, 2014

Back in 1994, a group of ten guys became close friends in high school and formed a squad. We've all reunited at weddings and our annual christmas party since then, but for our twentieth anniversary we were looking to do something big. Most of us are married now, some with kids. Where could we go that'll suit us all? A place where the guys can grill and goof off, the wives can drink wine and roll their eyes at us, and the kids can run around and play together? The moment we saw this Riverview Estate page, we were hooked: this looked like our ideal vacation spot. (The entertainment lodge was the biggest selling point!) It worked out great. 17 "adults" in our mid 30s with 7 kids under 5. There was enough room to spread out (families with kids slept in the main house, child-free couples in the other two.) People would go off on their own excursions during the days (hiking, biking, excursions into town) and we'd all gather for dinner in the entertainment lodge every night. Grilling, drinking, playing pool and poker, having fun in a relaxed and comfortable environment. Gale was very attentive and helpful. There happened to be an issue with the pool liner, which meant the pool would be closed for half of our stay. She went ahead and purchased an aboveground pool, just for us and basically just for a weekend. It was above and beyond anything we would've expected. We all had a great time, and would be excited to return at some point. It was a vacation of extra-ordinary magnitude.

Our week at Riverview could not have been better. All 21 one of us, ages 75 down to 1 had a wonderful time. The wide beautiful porches kept us dry even in wild thunderstorms. The grandchildren(and the adults) had a great time in the pool, and swimming in the river across the way. The Main House master bedroom had the most comfortable mattress we've ever slept on. It was especially helpful having three houses, giving all ages a sense of privacy, and the pool table provided hours of fabulous indoor entertainment for teenagers and adults. I suspect all 21 of us would hope to return next year.

With three buildings each with ample bedrooms, bathrooms, living space, kitchens and patios, we found we could enjoy sufficient private time but also have large enough areas in which we could congregate. We've been taking annual family reunion weeklong vacations for 25 years so we have plenty of comparisons and Riverview stacks right up there at the top. During the day we all like to follow our individual preferences for activities such as swimming, hiking, biking, kayaking, reading, billiards, working out, hot tubbing or golf so we all were content in our endeavors and not stepping on one another's toes. At night we take turns cooking feasts to share so all three kitchens hosted at least one dinner. Each of the three building has a firepit and folding lawn chairs are plentiful so nightly bonfires can be enjoyed. Gale has provided all the comforts of home including plenty of cookware, dishware, exercise equipment, books, TVs and games. She was always there to answer questions and ensure our comfort. She's a delightful and charming person so I'm glad to have been able to meet her this year and look forward to seeing her again next year.

The Very Bestî™ î™ î&tra de; î™ î™ î ;™ î™

This review is a 2-parter, first half for the owner and second half for the property. The Owner - Gale Brophy writes the book on running a luxury rental property. She is engaged and available enough to make sure you have everything you need at any given time, yet provides enough privacy and distance to make you feel like you own the property throughout your stay. Her only concern is that you enjoy your time at Riverview, and works with you before and during your stay to match her property best for your needs. Every group is different, and Gale understands that better than anyone. It's rare to encounter a property like this where you really feel like a friend gave you the keys for the weekend. I really can't say enough about what a pleasure she was to rent from. A+ The Property - Being the organizer of my group I had studied the pictures of Riverview multiple times before arriving. When I arrived I noticed two things: 1 IT'S HUGE, the pictures can't really capture how large this property is. 2. The set up and floor plans are perfect. Large spaces for when you want everyone together flowing into pockets of seclusion for when you want to escape and relax. I had a max capacity group and many times I felt like there were only a couple of us there. The only difficult part of the weekend was trying to enjoy every amenity of this property is just 3 days; Steam shower, pool table, sauna, hot tub, fire pit, the list goes on and on. The views are beautiful from the house, especially while sitting on one of the 5 balconies/porches with coffee in the morning. Needless to say, this was the perfect vacation with the best owner and best property I've ever encountered. Only rent this property if you want to raise the bar on your vacations. Thanks Gale! - JP

We had a group of 20 adults of mixed company, and could have fit a few more. The amount of room was incredible. First off, we were greeted by Michelle and Bobby on our arrival and they were great hosts, taking the time to walk us through all 3 houses and pointing out important details. It was a great way to start, as we immediately felt at home. Bobby also responded immediately to any questions we had during the week, which was really appreciated. As you go through the rooms, all of them are spacious and elegant. Bedrooms are amazing, and all furniture is new and cared for. All three houses were in impeccable condition. The nice thing about this is that the 3 buildings are a stone's throw away from each other, but at the same time give people places to tuck away if they need some personal time. The Entertainment lodge is truly a highlight, and amazing place to congregate. We generally hung out here, when not hiking on a trail, and it easily fit all of us, from the TV area, pool table, and massive dining table, where we often played board games. Usually I like to give constructive feedback, but in this case everything was truly perfect. I can't say enough good things about Riverview Estate. This was our 5th reunion, and was by far the nicest location. This destination is truly 5*, and we are DEFINITELY coming back. June, thank you for having us. It was truly a privilege, and we look forward to seeing you for many years to come! Mike Nykoluk

Our group has been going away early fall together now (we're 20+ adults and kids) for the last 7 years and the Riverview Estate was easily the most interesting and enjoyable place we've stayed in. Beautiful wooded surroundings, gorgeous vistas, luxurious rooms, kitchens galore (we cook all our own meals), spacious places to hang out together or separately, and the graciousness of Gale and her staff made our recent long weekend retreat the best ever. We'll certainly be back again.....kudos to all the staff for taking care of our special needs and requests, of course Gale who made sure we always had everything we needed.

We stayed at this house over Thanksgiving Break with our large family and had a great time. Everyone was very helpful and kind. The house was clean and very well furnished along with beautiful. It accommodated all of our needs and more. We all had a great time and we would stay at this property again anytime. We arrived on a very snowy day and the employees went above and beyond to help us with anything we needed. It gave such a comforting feeling and it was overall an amazing experience. We highly recommend this property to large groups looking to get away but still feel at home. We will absolutely be back again for our next trip!

We were a group of 17, 8 adults and 9 kids (ages 5-16). We stayed over New Years for about 6 nights. We had a wonderful time. We rented the main house and the entertainment lodge. Everything was clean and spacious. Beds were comfortable. Gail and Kristen were great to work with. They answered our 1000 questions before we checked in. They even drew up a layout of the houses including beds, bathrooms, etc. Our kids had a great time hiking the area next to the river and running around exploring outside. The kitchen has tons of supplies and pots and serving dishes for large parties and dinners. There is a great place to make a fire outside, we roasted marshmallows. It was very cold outside, but the house was nice and warm. Showers were great. There's a great big hot tub both the adults and kids enjoyed. We split the families between the 2 houses but having dinner and lunch is definitely more comfortable in the entertainment lodge where they have double stoves, double dishwashers and tons of tables and seating for large parties. There is also a great pool table and a huge TV in the entertainment lodge so the all the families could hang out w ample space. They have an onsite maintenance guy, Billy, who is great is always there to answer any questions or help with anything you have questions about. The only minor inconvenience was not having a washer/dryer. It wasn't a big deal and we were fine without it, but for some reason we assumed they would have that, so be sure to bring enough underwear! Regardless, Gale said she had people that could run into town and wash your clothes for you if you needed it. You are about 45 minutes from any major town. So we did a lot of day trips. One day we went to Cooperstown (Baseball Hall of Fame), another went to Binghampton, another day Holiday Mountain in Monticello, Hancock has a movie theatre and a bowling alley, etc. We highly recommend Lakeview and working with Gale, she was extremely accommodating and a pleasure to rent from. We will be back next year!!

Every year, a group of friends and family go away and on MLK Weekend we chose RiverView Estate by Brophy. The property consisted of three separate houses all on the same property and was absolutely fantastic. Each one was neat, clean, had multiple bedrooms/beds, kitchens etc. It accommodated our group of 11 families consisting of 30 people. The views were fantastic, it provided a large comfortable area for our group to relax and catch up for a fun weekend. The houses had fireplaces, a gym, jacuzzi, TV and other amenities. The employees/owner checked in with us frequently as the weather was bad one night, and someone was available for us 24/7. The kids hiked and went sleigh riding and adults had a perfect setting to just relax and enjoy time together. I highly recommend this property for a quiet weekend getaway.

The first word that comes to mind when you get to Riverview Estate is WOW!!!! We rented this property for a long weekend getaway to celebrate our daughter's Sweet 16. We had a total of 18 family members ranging in age 6 months to 78 yrs. We had use of the main house and the entertainment lodge. These two houses were just amazing! The pictures on the site really do not do the place justice. After reading all the reviews, we had very high expectations of what the property would be like. When we got there we were literally blown away. The place is just spectacular. Everything was spotless, the entire staff is so wonderful and helpful. The response time to any questions we had was VERY quick. We all congregated in the entertainment lodge which easily accommodated all of us for our meals. The kitchen is fully stocked and even had two dishwashers! The weather was not ideal during our stay but that was ok because there were plenty of indoor activities to keep us all busy. The pool table, the sauna, the hot tub, etc. When there were breaks in the weather, we thoroughly enjoyed hiking up the mountain, hanging out at the river and sitting around the firepit. The views were fantastic. We even had the pleasure of meeting Gale. She is just absolutely wonderful and a pleasure to work with. We are hoping to come back again so that we can enjoy all that Riverview Estate has to offer. Our whole family had the most wonderful time. We will definitely recommend this property to family and friends.

My family was looking for a place to hold our annual family reunion weekend and after having more than a few not-so-fun experiences with my Aunt doing the planning; I knew I had to take the reins this year. We have a large family with ages ranging from the grandparents to my brother's newest little addition and everything in between and I thought the task of finding a place that we would all enjoy would be close to impossible. That's when I stumbled upon Riverview Estate. First off, this place is HUGE! With three separate homes on the property everyone was able to get exactly what they needed in regards to sleeping arrangements. The grandparents (my parents) and other older guests enjoyed the privacy and seclusion of the 'couples cabin' while the grandkids and cousins loved hanging out in the 'entertainment lodge'. The pool is beautiful and would be perfect for swimming in the warm weather. There's a hot tub AND a sauna room in the main house that was perfect for relaxing during the weekend. There are nature trails encircling the property that we checked out and even a path that leads down a river-so beautiful! All in all, the weekend was wonderful. This property has something for everyone so whether you're a big family or a group of friends, you're sure to enjoy your stay here. The ground staff and management team are wonderful and very easy to work with. I thought this was going to be a huge headache to plan but it turned out to be a huge success! We will definitely be back again soon!

I organized a late spring college reunion for eight couples and to a man and woman, we all loved Riverview and would go back. The grounds are gorgeous, the hot tub and entertainment lodge looked and worked, just as advertised and we all went hiking on a great trail, right on the property. Unlike many properties that offer many bedrooms, each room was spacious and noone felt like they were drawing the last straw. Last, the owner, Gale and her staff, were super attendant and genuinely wanted us to just have a great time. I will definitely come back.

I organized my brothers bachelor party for here and couldn't be happier with the decision. We had 20 guys and made full use of the amazing property and surrounding area. The houses were beautiful. The activity lodge was perfect. The owner really went above and beyond to make sure we had a great time. We will be returning.

A unique and different type of resort with beautiful ground and excellent service. It is excellent for large groups as it has a nice amount of absolutely wonderful, very nicely furnished rooms!

Last but not least, thank you Gail for the delicious organic, free range eggs.

We recently stayed at Riverside Estates for a 50th Anniversary/Family Reunion! It was a great location for a large, noisy, fun family such as ours! Gale was a great hostess, checked on us several times to make sure everything was going great - which it was! Our family of 28 (14 adults, 8 grandchildren over age 12 and 6 grandchildren under age 12) has a family reunion every two years and are always looking for new places to go to. There were many amenities such as fire pits behind each of the three buildings, hot tub, dry sauna and exercise machines in the main house; pool table and fully-equipped kitchen with tables for all of us to sit down together in the entertainment lodge; and a quiet guesthouse with three bedrooms and a full kitchen area and sitting room. There were big screen TV's in each of the houses, two hiking trails adjacent to the property and outdoor porches and terraces behind each of the buildings. We were treated to fireworks on the 4th of July and did not have to move from the resort to see them!

I have to say I looked for months to find the perfect place for my bachelor party. After spending the last three such parties for friends in Las Vegas, and spending thousands of dollars, I was committed to finding an affordable place within driving distance from New York City that could comfortably fit my large group of 24. I was done with the expensive pool parties of Vegas and wanted something different, something truly unique that my closest friends would always remember. When I read the description and saw the pictures of Riverview, I was confident I had found my perfect location. I spoke to Gale and Kristen over the phone before booking and they convinced me that this was indeed the right fit... and boy, were they right. The weekend we just spent up there was one of the greatest weekends of my life. The pictures are fantastic on the web, but they couldn't even do the property justice - as it's very hard to quite capture the beauty and privacy afforded by a true 1200-acre property. We spent the weekend playing kickball in the giant field, sitting poolside in the hot-tub, and in the luxurious entertainment lodge. Staying in Riverview felt like we were in a private mansion, decorated with some truly incredible artifacts from the personal life of the property owner Gale Brophy, a former Kentucky Derby winner, among other accolades. The house and property was so incredible that our group did not leave the property the entire weekend. Gale and Kristen were great and were incredibly quick, open, and honest about any questions big or small that I had - no matter what time of day I asked. They aren't lying when they say they're 24/7. The property was exactly as advertised if not better. We easily could have fit a group of 32, maybe more. The property is just that big. Mine was a bachelor party, but the property works for any large group looking to just get away for the weekend and avoid the traffic, flights, and annoying expenses that come with the usual destinations like the Hamptons, Vegas, Miami, or New Orleans. I would 100% refer this to anyone I know looking to get away with a big group. Thanks so much Gale for a weekend my friends and I will never forget!
