Perfect off the beaten path place that you want to keep all to yourself but can't help but share.

We were intrigued with staying on the river near the beach as we love the slower, less crowded places but do enjoy going to the beach for the day. We certainly were not disappointed!! This is our new favorite place. There's enough to keep you exploring with the kayaking and if your good with a kayak, can take your fishing poles or use the canoe. We went to seafood market bought our own seafood to cook, ran by local grocery picked up steaks and cooked on the grill a meal that we must pat ourselves on the back for, the best we ate, besides Mrs. Kathryn's breakfast😋, while we were there. But for eating out, Nick's was our favorite place and we often like to go to Grayton beach we tried Camp Helen and loved it. You have to hike in a bit to the beach but it's worth the hike. We just loved to sit on our screened in porch and listen to the wildlife and even had a fire in the fire pit and had s'mores. Here you can stay put and be perfectly content or take a quick drive to whatever you find to do. We definitely will be back, very special place (and might I add for you OCD people like me, cleaner than anywhere I've ever stayed😉) with the breakfast or without for you non breakfast eating people. Ron and Kathryn genuinely enjoy having and hosting people at their little corner of the river, along with Annie and Gracie, just don't sit in Gracie's spot on the boat😁 and they keep the grounds so beautiful there aren't many sticks for Annie to fetch but if you find one, you'll have a new best friend.
