"I would highly recommend staying at this property! I was fortunate enough to have stayed at the Main House for 7 days, and hated to leave! Have you ever chosen to stay somewhere based on some photos and reviews, and then found yourself disappointed because things weren't exactly as described? This was certainly NOT one of those times! The entire house is beautiful and was everything we had hoped for, and more! It had everything we needed! The main deck is spectacular, both day and night! Nighttime brought some flying insects with it, but nothing that a fire in our beautiful fire pit couldn't keep away. The ducks and geese came to visit several times a day, too, and we looked forward to seeing them. Watching the sunrise and sunset from the deck, with the water as smooth as glass, was amazing! The location of this house offered us a quiet, and a serenity, that made us feel like we were a lot farther than 20 minutes from a major city!
It was fun to watch people ski and tube down the river and then wait for their waves to gently rock the house. Even though the house moves a bit at times, it is that very motion that lends to the peacefulness and relaxation of the entire experience. Night-time quiet, a fire, and fishing from the deck, could not have been more relaxing!
The property caretaker lives close by and tended to our every need. He was awesome! When we would return from a dinner, sightseeing, etc., fresh firewood would be stacked in our fire pit just waiting to be lit. He was very informative about the area and helped us find our way around. The property owner, Joyce, was also very friendly and gave us great tips on catching the river catfish. It worked! Thanks, Joyce, for everything! I loved this place, and this is one trip that none of us will ever forget."
