Guestbook comments from the owner


Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us. We really enjoyed our stay. We left about 7:00 am Wed. morning, and left the sheets and towels that we used on top of the washing machine, as we did not have time to wash and dry them before we left. We did dry the towels so they would not mildew, but they still need to be washed. The house looked great when we got there and also when we left. We took the final bag of trash with us as we left.

The guys were able to catch only 5 fish, and that was disappointing, but we had a great vacation anyway. The water was beautiful, the scenery was spectacular, and we were able to play golf a couple of times and see the caverns as well. Your friend Laura was so very helpful. She even came over and let our dog out for us when we were gone for the day. Then relaxing on the deck with a glass of wine before dinner or drowning a few worms off the lower deck made for a great day every day.

Thank you again for being such a considerate host. We hope to do this again next year.

Warm regards,

Patricia M.

Beautiful, peaceful, totally adequate

  • 5 of 5

This home was much more than we expected, larger than we thought it would be with plenty of space for 7 adults and 2 dogs. The laundry room

was a good place to set up the dogs' sleeping areas, and the outside screened porch was perfect for when the dogs needed to dry off before coming back in the house. The three bedrooms had enough space for 3 couples and the living room couch was comfortable enough for the 7th person. An air mattress would easily have fit in the living room if needed. The whole home is beautifully decorated, but not cluttered.

The kitchen is very nicely stocked, with everything needed to prepare and serve all of our meals. I had brought along some of my own dishes, but they were not really needed.

And the property itself is beautiful, right on the river. If it was cooler, it would be nice to sit outside and enjoy the view.

We enjoyed kayaking, putting in a few minutes up the road, and taking out at the house.

In the afternoon we took a 45 minute drive to Wiliford Springs, a very nice 'swimming hole'. Just an fyi, dogs are not allowed at the springs.

We definitely recommend this home to others, and if we were the type to return to a location (we like to go different places) we would most certainly come back here. Thank you very much. Well done.

We had a wonderful stay, the house is beautiful and perfect. We had all the comforts from the home and got to explore and enjoy the Chipola River. We kayaked, swam, fished and just relaxed. Thank you!

Amazing, relaxing, perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This place could not have been named any more perfectly. It was definitely Heaven on the Chipola!! The house itself was beautiful and had everything we needed. The view of the river was stunning. It was great being only 30 minutes away from beaches, an hour away from other activities but right there was it was nice and quiet. We would definitely love to come back again!!
