We check our cottages often to keep them well maintained and our goal is for you to have a relaxing time during your stay. We are ALWAYS here to help you.

The Garden Cottage is more upscale then most homes for rent in this area & is decorated in an old farmhouse style inside with boarded walls & high ceilings. French doors in every room open up to the huge porches with river views. 6 tubes are supplied in the warmer months. We even have a tube run, rope swing ,slide & ..great swimming area.

There is a large flat rock to sit on in middle of river right in front of this cottage, perfect for lounging in the river. Wildlife comes daily and you can watch the deer and wild turkey in your backyard (not to mention Marshmallow the bear, who makes an appearance now and then). The cottage's land is length-ways on the river so you have over 1000' on the riv
