“Thanks ever so for our two-week sojourn north. It was wonderful to get away…I was thinking how grand it is for you to have such a positive impact on the lives of so many people. It’s really cool. The setting is delightful; the staff has always been friendly and courteous and there’s no better location to actually “get away” from the rat race in such wonderful surroundings. Sure, you might experience cell phone connectivity issues…but, that’s one of the reasons we go; to get away from the constant bombardment of electronics! You can fish, swim, canoe, kayak, hike, shop in Wolf Den ( I swear we own half of everything they sell) or venture into town Ely for a few hours.
Time is yours to do whatever…no one pushes you to get up/out and do anything (unless it’s a family member). We read, we read A LOT…on the deck, on the pier, on the beach; in the boat…we snooze and relax…and basically spend our time decompressing from the craziness of our “real” lives. You can sit and see/hear the loons, the eagles flying overhead, the laughter of young kids at the swimming beach, watch the rabbits nibbling the clover, see the chipmunks foraging for whatever they can, and the deer…oh the deer. This year, a doe and her fawn and the buck were evident (and visible) almost everyday. (Apparently, there was a moose on site, but I personally missed seeing it—drat.) In the evening, bon fires and s’mores are pretty much standard every night.
The River Point experience is yours to make it what you will. This year, we added the significant other of one daughter…next year we’re also bringing a best friend from Oregon…and look forward to the year we’ll be bringing grandchildren, as well. Clearly, we don’t think you can go wrong at River Point. It’s an annual sojourn to reconnect, with nature, your family and your soul. A wonderful location to find inner peace.”
