Beautiful, Clean Home!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd visit for a girls weekend! We loved it! Everything we need is in the home and everything is clean! 5 bedrooms is a huge bonus!! Also, there is plenty of seating so everyone can enjoy visiting. The screen porch is awesome, unfortunately both of our visits occured during cool weekends, but with blankets we loved having our morning coffee out there. Great place, highly recommend!!!

Summer stay at River Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family of nine stayed at the Danielson's river home for a wedding in Taylors Falls. There was plenty of space for all of us. We particularly enjoyed the screened in porch where we ate meals, played cards, and told stories. The house was clean, nicely decorated, and was perfect for our long weekend. I would recommend this place to anyone looking to stay in the area.

Cooksville Wheelin Women

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay and wish we would have had one more day. There were so many wonderful things to do. We loved sitting on the screened in back porch. There was room for everyone all 9 of us without being in each others way. Many lovely spaces to sit and relax. We rode the Stower 7 lakes trail upon arrival and then the next day rode on the Gandy Dancer trail up to Luck. We had a delicious lunch at the Wren Cafe. In the evening we had an enjoyable and delicious meal at the Dulles Supper Club. We did some hiking at the Interstate Park and even stopped at the Franconia Sculpture park on our way home. Next time we would definitely go for that extra day. It truly was a wonderful time.

The best girls weekend yet !

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th VRBO rental for a group of 10 and the house was perfect for us and the best rental to date. Comfortable beds, great kitchen,sit down dinner at the big dining room table, great bathrooms,the best screen porch and outdoor bar area to sit. Walked to trails, shops, and evening entertainment. We all just loved it ! The only snag was we weren't prepared to run low on T.P. Saturday night for such a large group. But we had a great time and we hope to be back ! Thank you again !!
