Great view on the river and fantastic home.
The home was really nice. Modern with upstairs and downstairs bedrooms. 2-complete bathrooms. Really nice screened in porch. Very quiet and relaxing. Very large dock to hang out on and sun bath, fish off of or read a book. I would highly recommend this home. Mark is a great host.
Beautiful Setting and well maintained.
This property is sitting right on the river with two decks. Enjoyed drinking my coffee and watching the wildlife and the birds. We also sat on the dock in the afternoons. The cabin is well appointed and had everything we needed. Comfortable beds, which is always a plus. Mark came by to check on us and made us feel so welcome. We hope to go back again some day. Loved every minute.
Nice quiet house on the river for a great price
This house was better than expected. The price was great and the location was even better. The river side of the house was fully in the shade by 4 in the afternoon which makes for some very cool afternoons. Dock was recently redone and a great place to hang out. River was deep enough around the dock to jump in and float around which we did often. Best part of the house was the screened in porch, which we used every morning and afternoon.
Mark was a great host. He was very responsive to all our needs. He even took us up river and dropped us off so we could kayak back down to the house!
I wish we could have stayed longer than we did and would recommend this house to anybody looking for a getaway on the water.
Great Waterfront Getaway
Our family of 6 stayed for 3 nights in Mark’s great cabin on the Elk River. The house was well equipped and had plenty of room for all 6 us. Our oldest son with his fiancée visited for the day as well. We all loved the dock to fish and swim from and we especially enjoyed the use of the kayaks, none of us wanted to leave. It was nice having a gas grill there as well. Mark was very prompt and informative when communicating with us and he made our stay easy and relaxing. We highly recommend this waterfront rental and we will be recommending it to our family and friends and will be staying here again in the future, hopefully for much longer next time!
I'm so glad you guys had s good time. I would love to have you again.
I spend a wonderful time, but way too short, with my four sisters at Mark’s place. We had a great time and our favorite place to chat was on the back porch over looking the water. First thing in the morning and last place at night was that beautiful view, especially with the moon reflecting in the water. I really hope to go back again. Thank you Mark. You are a wonderful host. We were so pleased to meet you. Your history lessons were great! Thanks again.
It was really great having you and your sisters. I hope our paths pass again.
The host was incredible. The setting was beautiful. The bed was very comfortable. The deck was my favorite!
