  • Great multi-family vacation


    This was our third return to the Rock Riverside Retreat and it did not disappoint!

    Jaime and the owners are extremely accommodating and quick to respond. There was even a tornado that went through Janesville two days before our arrival and we were still able to check in early! :)

    The house, of course, is great. Clean, plenty of space, great for families with kids of all ages. We enjoyed the little beach even though the river level was high. We used the ping pong table, and the grade-school aged kids really loved the game room this year. (And bunk room with a secret door to the game room!)

    Had a great time! See you next year!

  • Wonderfully relaxing!


    Our extended family enjoyed this fabulous home while in town for a wedding. Spacious for different activities, yet comfortable and welcoming. Thank you for a great visit!

  • Great house


    This was a perfect spot for a get together with 3 couples. The house was very clean and well stocked. The communication with Jaime, one of the owners, was excellent. She called us before our stay to see if we had any questions or concerns. She was very accommodating while we were there as well. It was a great place to stay!

  • Wonderful Stay


    Our family had another fantastic stay Christmas week. Same as last year. The air hockey and basketball games were the highlight. Plus there were plenty of other activities available to fill the time for everyone. The host is very helpful.

  • Absolutely Beautiful Home


    We were in town for my brother’s memorial service. Four of my family members and their family stayed at the home. We had such a wonderful time remembering my brother and enjoying each others company. We decided to make it a priority to get together every year.
