Beautiful, secluded estate!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

The stay in the Riverview estate was absolutely lovely. The house was clean and had absolutely everything you needed, we only had to leave in the very beginning to buy food! It was quiet and secluded, so it really felt like we were getting away, despite not being far from the grocery store or pharmacy. There was more than enough sleeping and living space, and having the hot tub in the house in the winter was a wonderful perk. This stay is absolutely perfect for large groups. We would definitely be interested in going back.

    We could not have asked for anything more! Not only was the premises breathtakingly beautiful and spacious, but Gale and her team were so accommodating and helpful throughout the entire process. We stayed for 3 full days and 3 nights and did not have to nor want to leave the estate the entire time - it had everything we needed from silverware and cutlery to pots and pans to dishwashers, plenty of space both inside and outside for activities, a hot tub, and fire pits at each of the three houses on the estate. We will definitely be back!

    Spacious, polished, amazing property!

    ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

    Everything was clean, spacious, comfortable, warm, and plentiful, and there was plenty to do with the property being so huge! Tons of fun and excellent customer service whenever had any questions about anything. Awesome hot tub, ample kitchen and dining space, great game room... everything was excellent. Would definitely love to come back and would absolutely recommend to anyone.

    I could not speak more highly of RiverView Estate. Not only is the property huge and gorgeous, but the care that the owner takes is on another level. They did everything that they could to make sure that our stay was comfortable and warm. The beds are comfortable, the amenities well-kept, and the owners flexible. I will definitely stay again and would recommend it to anyone.

    Riverview Estate by Brophy is a great place to spend a long weekend with friends or family! The accommodations are clean and comfortable. Additionally there are plenty of activities to keep you occupied during your entire stay. Gale is very responsive and attentive to any needs that may arise. I recommend for anyone who is looking for a weekend getaway in the woods!

    I highly recommend RiverView for any long weekend or trip to the Catskills. Super easy to get to from NYC and Gale and her team couldn't have been more gracious. Check in was a breeze and the property is absolutely stunning. Thanks for the great weekend!

    The Best wedding venue!

    ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

    I am literally in tears right now as I start to even think about writing a review for this place! This is the most AMAZINGLY gorgeous hands down BEST estate/hotel/wedding venue in the world. I cannot say enough about how amazing our time here was. But I’m gonna try because I have read so many reviews for wedding venues and let me tell you the Truth (as every bride wants to know) about Brophy Estates.. when we first viewed the estate we met Debbie the sweetest nicest person we ever had give us a tour of anything lol (we saw At least 20 venues) she took us to room after room and when u thought it was over hold on.. cuz it only gets better! There was so much room so much space for family, so many unique little trinkets or pictures everywhere you felt like you were at home. We saw what was being turned into a reception hall and it was empty at the time. Gale came by to meet us and we were sold right then and there she is the sweetest person but beyond that she told us what this hall would be with beautiful birch wood trees and lanterns from the ceiling... When we finally booked the venue Kristen was helpful answering questions for us. (Do you have a keruig for my mom?! Lol ) We were nervous when we got there about how it would look but gale did NOT disappoint.. it is truly amazing romantic and so perfect. The day before my wedding I was bridezilla running around with my DIY lanterns that I decided I didn’t like last minute.. to my surprise gale called me to wish me the best and heard in my voice I was not happy about my centerpieces she came by in 10 mins.. changed out my centerpieces for me and made me the happiest bride ever! I was in such awe at how perfect this staff is.. I called Debbie cuz the tv was not working the first morning (cuz of rain damn direct tv) but she and tony came by and immediately attended to every need and question we had!(Debbie and Tony are hysterical ask them about anything they will make your day with their fun stories)

    My wedding day called for rain.. my fiancé’s dream was to have the wedding by the river and it was a-little wet..Walter (THE BEST) came with hay to make sure no one got wet and my husband could have the wedding of his dreams! We had some grandparents who couldn’t walk that far to the river site and Walter drove them down! We are so so thankful so appreciative of everything they did for our special day but not only that I feel like we made new friends and family!

    Amazing Weekend! Wonderful Hosts!

    ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

    Last weekend, the non-profit organization that I volunteer for hosted our 4th annual Healing of the Heart Retreat - a retreat for 25 women who have lost a child to congenital heart defects. We rented both the Riverview and Deer Ridge Estates and could not be more pleased with our experience and the superb service that we received while there. The properties are both beyond BREATHTAKING, and provided a serene escape for these women and those of us hosting this retreat. From our first contact with the property managers, through our close out of the weekend we were so impressed with how much effort this family and their employees put into making our stay special. We had the owners number on hand and were able to contact her with any questions throughout the weekend, and this truly made our task of hosting this retreat easier. Because we were hosting such a large group of women, and needed private beds for each person attending, we chose to rent both properties, which are just a short walk from each other. Each property has plenty of space to host large group gatherings, entertainment areas and lovely sleeping quarters for all of its guests. We could not be more pleased with our experience there, and the love and compassion that went into making our stay amazing. We will definitely be back to host our next retreat this fall!

    Excellent! Beautiful Estate

    ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

    Excellent! Beautiful estate, well maintained. Had a recent gathering of 16 adults. The Estate comfortably accommodated this size group. Gorgeous pool, hot tub, sauna. The property manager and staff were a joy to deal with and responsive to any needs. Easy walk to the river and many hiking trails.

    Beautiful property! Great for activities!

    ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

    The Brophy RiverView Estate was magnificent! Gale, the owner, was so hospitable and welcoming. Her home was beautifully furnished and perfect for our group of 30 (so many bedrooms!). Kristen, the property manager, was really helpful and willingly suggested hikes in the area as well as caterers. The view was lovely. The pool was warm and kid friendly (fully fenced in!) Even though our weekend was a bit rainy, we still had a great time playing outside, making bonfires every night and having lovely meals together. We couldn't have asked for more. Thank you Brophy Estates!

    This visit was my third visit and every time I come it gets Better. I have already booked it for next year. This place is just the best. And all of my guests loved it as well. See you all next year in June. If your reading this and thinking about renting don't pass it up you will regret it. Fun fun fun
