We visited Rivers Edge Resort September 17 and 18. Joy and Scott the owners and hosts made us feel so welcome. They offer amazing wedding packages there and I highly recommend you checking this place out for a wedding venue. We spent a night in one of their lovely cottages, took a walk to the river and around their gorgeous grounds . Spent the night around the bonfire and finished off the evening under a spectacular starry night in the hot tub. I cannot wait to go back in the near future.
Myself and three others stayed in the small cabin over a weekend. It was very relaxing and fun! We were able to hot tub and snowshoe. The cabin is very cute and clean. The lady that met us was so sweet and great to deal with. I truly enjoyed my stay and will be back again.
Just had a wonderful winter weekend at River's Edge Resort! This place is a hidden gem in the Manitoba cabin market that I can't recommend highly enough to anyone looking for a quick getaway. My partner and I headed out on a Friday night and were joined by another six people on Saturday. We stayed in the Eagle's Nest and the cabin was warm, cozy, and absolutely spotless (especially loved the big bathroom with the huge shower head). Even with eight people had plenty of space. We made good use of the fully stocked kitchen for cooking all weekend and had everything we needed to prepare a variety of food. There's also a market down the street in case you forgot any groceries which is nice. The hot tub was a great bonus for the two of us (I wouldn't count on fitting more than three people in it, so take that into account). We also loved the snowshoes and used them for a really nice walk down the frozen river. Scott cleared the skating rink off for us to use—we went out at night when it's lit by strings of lights and really peaceful and lovely. The milk jug curling was also a big hit! I planned the getaway as a birthday surprise for my partner and Joy was incredibly patient in answering my many questions in the weeks leading up to our visit to make sure everything was just right, including touring us through the cabin when we arrived. She was also a good sport in helping me keep the surprise of our extra guests which was much appreciated. I've been telling everyone about River's Edge since I came back and am already looking at dates to come back for a stay in the summer. Definitely exceeded my expectations, which were already high to begin with. A great place to stay!…
The cabin we stayed at was really nice and cosy, it was nice and clean and the area was quiet and relaxing. Lots of things to do... We got to do some fishing, walking around, had a Bon fire, and went strawberry picking nearby. Joy and Scott were super friendly and excellent hosts. Highly recommended 👍🏽. Will definitely be back!
Had the best time *ever* - 3 nights with my sister visiting me (I live in Winnipeg) from Victoria BC, - Aug 24, 25 & 26, 2015, we were there. We couldn't have asked for a better place to be with each other to catch up on some needed sista time! My sister and her husband are experienced world travelers, 5 star traveller types where they go, top end hotels, top end cruise bookings etc. She LOVED this place! And wanted to stay longer I urge others to check this little town of Elma out and this resort and make plans to stay here, perfect new cabin with perfect amenities, and a perfect couple who runs it, what more could you want? Your peaceful and relaxing getaway from city life in about an hour, what's not to like about that! :)
We spent the weekend with our grandson Chase, who is 9, at the resort. We all really enjoyed it. The cabin was beautiful and Chase enjoyed sleeping in the loft area. Chase enjoyed fishing and canoeing with his papa. The cabin had everything you needed. All you had to bring was your clothing and food. The hosts were readily available to answer any questions you had. Would definitely go back again and recommend it to everyone.
The cabin is beautiful and so nice and clean. Very comfortable beds. Great shower. Nice property to explore. We really enjoyed the hosts, who were readily available to take care of our needs - they provided access to the garden, gave us a golf cart ride, lit a fire for us at night, and even drove us to a drop off point so that we could kayak back to the cabin without fighting the current. We look forward to returning in winter for cross country skiing and skating on the river.
The owners made our weekend the absolute best. They are so friendly and helpful. The cabin is beautiful, clean and well-equipped. The property is gorgeous and so well maintained. Firewood was always stocked, the garden was in good shape even though it was early in the growing season. The river was a beautiful to sit by, and to fish. It rained a little to much to enjoy swimming, so the riverside gazebo was very welcome. The area around Elma is pretty and just minutes from the whiteshell. This is a perfect little getaway so close to Winnipeg. Had we gone a week later, we definitely would have gone strawberry picking just out of town as well.
River's Edge was a great retreat for our family of 3! This cottage was immaculate! Very clean and well appointed. Fully equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, rain shower, soaker tub, sat.tv, etc. The cottage sits on an acreage overlooking the river. We enjoyed a bonfire on the river. Joy & Scott were excellent hosts. We have rented many Manitoba cottages over the years, but this one ranks at the top.
The cabin is absolutely gorgeous from the moment you walk in! Kitchen is equipped with everything you would need, bedrooms are comfy cozy and the entire place is spotless. Hosts Scott and Joy really go over the top to make your stay top notch. This would be the perfect place to go with a group or for a romantic getaway, don't think twice! :)
