                                                                  This house exceeded our weekend expectations. Lots of beds, open floor plan where everyone could spread out yet still see and talk to each other from different rooms. We choose this home over others because of its outdoor area: hot tub, party lights, grill, volleyball, washer pits, fishing and easy river entry. We will return to this home next spring!

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  So glad your group enjoyed the home. Hope you return soon!

                                                                  Beautiful property with plenty of room for the kids to run.
