The soft trickle of the fountain adds character to your outdoor time here.
DOCK AND RIVERSIDE: Just a few years ago, a brand new 70+ foot seawall was installed to improve river access for our guest that enjoy boating, kayak, canoeing and more. You have access to numerous boat-let in's for the river including 2 marinas and a city dock. There are several sets of tie-down cletes to accommodate all sizes of watercraft. A gorgeous dock and sitting area was also installed at this time. Made of composite decking so you'll always have a sliver-free and beautiful dock to enjoy. We've also recently added a 4-stool pub-height table and chairs set with an umbrella to extend your river experience and give you as much shade or sun dockside as you want.
And as the sun goes down on the river, you can cozy up around the fire. We've provided a fire ring to set off the full experience.
We hope to see you soon at The Apple Blossom Cottage!
