  1. Lake Front
    Any property that borders the state-owned ‘buffer strip.' Lake Front means you have access to the water for swimming and a boat dock if applicable to your home. You can go directly to the water from your door with no road between. Lake Front does not necessarily mean you have a view of the water, since much of our shoreline is wooded.
  2. Ski Area
    Ski Area homes and units are in the direct vicinity of Wisp Resort. Ski Area homes may require you to drive a very short distance and/or cross a road by foot. Some homes under Lake Front, Lake Access or Lake Area may also be considered a Ski Area property.

This was our second year at Rivendell. We like the attached bathrooms to all of the bedrooms. We love the location. We love how well stocked it is with movies, games and puzzles. We were happy to see some changes this year also. Overall, a great place to relax and enjoy the lake.
We’re so glad to hear that Rivendell met all of your needs and expectations, Terry! Please don’t hesitate to visit again soon. - Lainey, Railey Vacations

As we entered the second spring of this pandemic, the family was in need of a getaway and Rivendell was the perfect spot! With plenty of space and entertainment for everyone, our family of 7 could spread out and play as needed. The rental with Railey was easy and the house was exactly as portrayed. Thank you for a great week!

Overall great property!! There were several maintenance issues but they didnt take away from the great layout of the house. I would book again if they fix the hot tub and get a new fire pit.

Rivendell exceeded our expectations! Clean, well organized, on the lake and a well supplied stock of games, books, DVD's, ping pong, pool table and hot tub. We have been several times and this was the first home we loved so much we plan to rent it again next year. The location is perfect also.

The home and Lake view was absolutely gorgeous. We spent most of the time in the house due to the state of emergency regarding the corona virus. We did not get to enjoy any outdoor activities but there were enough games/movies to keep us occupied in the home. I would definitely recommend it and look forward to returning.
