Excellent home. Beautiful Location. We could not have been happier. John was a very prepared and gracious house manager, everything was just wonderful. Sleeps a large group very comfortably. You will not regret renting this house.

Great experience inside and out!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of about 18 stay here in August 2016. We were curious to see what the place looked like on the inside since there were not many pictures. The inside was nice and the houses were very clean when we arrived. The real experience is outside on the huge party deck and the patio underneath the treehouse with a TV set up. John was a lot of help during our stay and was responsive to any needs that we had. The instructions to check-out were simple and it made the early morning check-out a lot easier than other experiences I have had. We also enjoyed the pier where we spent some time fishing and having fun with the tubers floating by the house. The house couldn't have been in a better location. It was only about a minute up the road to Mountain Breeze where we rented our tubes to float. I would recommend this house to any large group looking for a good time on the river!

Rainy but relaxing!!!

  • 5 of 5

We all came to stay at the river house for a company work trip. Unfortunately it rained pretty much the entire time, which was a bummer because this house is PERFECT for river floats!!!

Even though it rained, the house was spacious and clean and great even for the rain.

We cooked and hung out and jumped in the river whenever the rain let up enough to give us the chance to swim!! The owners wife was even sweet enough to bring by a bag of board games for us!

We loved the house so much and defintely plan to stay here again when it is sunny!!

Thank you for the hospitality!

Awesome fun family weekend!

  • 5 of 5

The two houses were a great deal for our large family. The owners were great, and very helpful. I wish the kitchen had been a little better stocked as we found it difficult to cook breakfast. There was an awesome deck overlooking the river where you could watch floaters. I would go back again!

Worth every penny

  • 5 of 5

Property was fantastic.

-Great location in relation to tube rental locations, can even plan it it to stop at the house mid-float.

-Great owner. Was at the property as we arrived, making improvements and making the place look even better than it already did.

-The two house combination was a little different setup but worked out great

-The yard, deck, and river access was fantastic

Definitely plan on reserving again.
