Plenty of room, nice kitchen.

  • 4 of 5

The house was great. We had 5 adults and we could have had 5 more with plenty of room. Tubing on the river was great fun and Mr. Fitzgerald was extremely helpful when it came to fishing spots. The fire pit was a big hit every night. My only recommendation would be to bring your own cutting board and a baking dish, we could find neither in the kitchen. We would take this house again in a minute; great mini-vacation. Special thanks to Mr. Fitzgerald for allowing us to bring our diabetic cat; he had fun too.

The property was perfect for us!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 5 kids and two adults and the cabin and location was perfect for us. There was plenty for the kids to do, plenty for the adults to do. Everything was easy and fun. We will definitely be back!

Fun weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Booked this cabin for my sons 16th birthday. We invited some family up and it was perfect. There's so much to do the kids never got bored. Really hoping we can get away for a weekend this summer and use this same cabin.

Fun weekend spot with friends

  • 5 of 5

I visited this property for a long weekend with 10 or so of my closest friends. We had such a great time! It was perfect for spending some time outside by the river and relaxing and hanging out. We loved the fire pit, the "man cave" and the juke box was so much fun!

House Needs Some Work

  • 3 of 5

First and foremost, I echo what many visitors said about the owner Rick Fitzgerald (Fitz). He was VERY accommodating, very friendly and tried his best to make the stay a memorable one. However, I never got the final directions or instructions on how to get to the cabin , etc.....because he sent that info via text to my home phone (land-line). So, when we got there we had to call him to get thru the gate and then call him again to actually find the cabin!! When we got there it was apparent that the cabin needed a better cleaning. The kitchen counters were "sticky", the oven and stove top was very dirty.....even the front of the fridge was in need of a good "wipe-down". The toilet in the downstairs bath (at the bottom of the stairs), kept backing up so we had to "plunge it" several times as well as pour draino down the sink in that bathroom and the sink in the upstairs bathroom so it would drain properly. Finally, the statement that it sleeps 12 is just a little mis-leading, as one of the bedrooms upstairs has a full bed and then 2 twins that have "roll out" trundle beds underneath them. If you rolled out both trundles there would be absolutely no room in that BR to walk around!! We had to re-locate the 2 trundle beds/mattresses from the upstairs to the basement (Man-Cave) so we could separate some of the folks that needed a bed to sleep in!! Fitz helped us move those 2 beds down to the Man-Cave......again, very accommodating and very friendly, but we were disappointed that we had to do that at all!! Overall, it was a very nice stay and it was GREAT having both daughters and all 5 grandchildren all together for the Xmas holiday. The pool table and Jukebox were BIG hits (no pun intended), and once we got the sleeping arrangements set-up, I think everyone had a good time. We just think that Fitz needs a little help in the cleaning and getting the cabin ready for the next visitors portion of the rental scenario. Plus, there were 2 TV's that were the old CRT type models that weigh a TON, and we ended up trying to switch one of those old TV's out because we thought the first one was those damn things are heavy!! Turned out that one of the cable boxes was not working properly, so we found one that wasn't being used in the MBR downstairs, re-located it to the BR upstairs, and got the connection working!! Cabin is down an unpaved, dirt road, and the actual driveway is pretty steep. Hope this helps!!
