Spacious cabin and bedrooms right on the river

  • 4 of 5

The cabin is very nice with nice size living areas and bedrooms. It has great view of the river and is a nice property and location. I would have given it a 5 star but several things need upgrading. We had problem with the electric cooktop and the dishwasher is small and didn't work well. Twin beds need box springs and all matresses could use mattress pads. Owner Rick is a great guy and was responsive to our request. A few little upgrades and effort and it's a 5 star

needs some tender loving care

  • 3 of 5

Really the place is a good rental. It needed to be cleaned better before our arrival. Everything worked good. The mattress was very squeaky in the room that we slept. We loved the six deer that visited and we thank the owner for the corn he supplied. Overall we would recommend this location, especially families in the summertime. Also the rental fee was very affordable.

fall break

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a very enjoyable fall break at this river house in October. The boys young and old enjoyed feeding the deer, playing pool, swinging on the rope swing and listening to the juke box. You can check it out on Daniel Bennetts youtube video "I almost broke my Neck on a rope swing" Subscribe if you like it and book it to enjoy it ! Mr. Fitzgerald was very accomodating and helpful.

Needs Attention

  • 2 of 5

Fritz is a very nice man and quick to come over if you have any problems however the house is in desperate need of a good cleaning and maintenance. We could not use some of the facilities there due to the condition: the basement has a water leak and therefore it is very moldy smelling and the outdoor screen room is full of spider webs and dirt. The bathrooms were clean and the sheets had been changed but that is about it! It is a real shame because it is a beautiful home and in a great location!

wonderful vacation spot for a big family!

  • 5 of 5

House was fantastic. The kids and adults loved the basement with the pool table and jukebox. Deer were everywhere, we tubed down the river daily, played in the river and on the rope swing, and found a nearby hike up a waterfall. Lots to do and lots of room to for 3 adults and 6 kids to spread out. We hope to come back next year!

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.
