This property is special.. It's proximity to the Salmon Falls river (which is tidal) is so close that you feel nature and its beauty everywhere. This property is a unique architect designed home that offers a private and secluded stay. It is an oasis of nature. The house blends the vernacular of historic and modern.

It is more intimate and personal than hotels, and offers the perspective of the owner in discovering the local area.

The area around this property is primarily land trust. There is a wonderful state park and historic home called the Hamilton House. South Berwick is home to Sarah Orme Jewitt and the oldest private schools in Maine. There are several farm to table restaurants that have been highly reviewed in the Boston papers.

Had an amazing stay. So peaceful and relaxing. Mark is an excellent host, nothing is too much trouble. We are sorry to be leaving but this will be our 1st choice if we are back this way.

Thank you so much for everything.

Riverhouse was and is a fantastic find for me and my 9 year old son and 11 year old daughter who were all looking for a warm, friendly, tastefully luxurious home-away-from home while we explored the Southern Maine coast.

Kaitlynd and River made us fell right at home. Wish we could stay longer this time but will in the future.
