Great communication!

We assisted a family staying in this property. The owners were very accommodating in regards to all our needs and that of the family. They were available to answer all of our questions quickly to ensure a successful stay. We would most certainly book again.

Owner's Response: My husband and I take pride in this property and welcome feedback. We supply all of our contact information to our guest and Had we been contacted during your stay, we would have gladly addressed any concerns. The property was cleaned prior to your arrival, as we do this ourselves to keep cost low. The “clutter” that you may be referring to is bottled water that is supplied as a courtesy. We stand by the property description and photos. The chocolate that was left was our daughter’s and we have addressed it with her.

Beautiful spot, comfy home!

  • 5 of 5

I was here with family over the Labor Day weekend and we had a wonderful stay. So comfortable, and great to get up in the morning and sit out on the back deck with a cup of coffee and the beautiful river view, or with a glass of wine at night with the tiki torches lit. The owners could not have been more helpful, responsive and welcoming. The surrounding farm country is lovely! Highly recommend this home for anyone who wants a down to earth, comfy, beautiful spot to hang out for a few days.

Great weekend - owner really took care of us

  • 5 of 5

View was perfect. Extras were amazing - they left a bonfire ready to light, food in the fridge, kayaks ready to use and we're so responsive to all our questions. We were there for a girls weekend and lounging on the enourmous couch and having coffee on the deck were highlights. Comfy beds.
