Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to let you know that my son, brothers and I had a great time at your place on the river. It was very enjoyable. We will most likely do it again next year at this same time. We did get to canoe a long stretch of the river on Saturday. The water was to high and murky for fishing.

Rustic but with all the modern amenities.

  • 4 of 5

This cabin is wonderful, it really is 'right on the water'. About 20 min from Berkeley Springs with cute shops, a Food Lion and good restaurants. Tari's Cafe was fantastic. The cabin was comfortable. A few misses, as we found old coffee grounds in the coffee pot and the stink bugs were everywhere, but nothing horrible. We also had no cell service at all. The biggest problem was that I could not get an answer for over a week from the owner and he never gave me the key code to get in. We found that a sliding door was unlocked, otherwise we would have been unable to get in at all. I'd like to go back, but if we can't get in touch with the owner, that will not happen.

Owner's Response: So glad that Debbie liked the place. Not sure what happened about the emails she send to try to get in touch with me but as I told her on the phone the emails came though days later. And the same goes for the key code. When I give the directions in the same email there is the key code to get the keys, the Internet password, other instructions, and 4 phone numbers to call for any problems.

Great River House

  • 5 of 5

This house is a great place for a family vacation. Two families of 5 fit comfortably. The river is right in your backyard with lots of tubes ,a kayak, and life vests to use. We tubed right from the house to the end of the road. About a 5 minute drive took 2 1/2 hours on the river. It was very relaxing and beautiful. I recommend this house to anyone who likes camping but wants the comfort of a house.

Fantastic Stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

Absolute fantastic place to get away to for a weekend. We had a blast and took full advantage of being right on the river and having an outside fire pit. Very clean and plenty of sleeping space!
