IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Three Rivers Island is a golf cart community. You will park your vehicle in our parking lot and take a five minute drive on our golf cart to the cottage. The cottage is not suitable for children under the age of 13.
Really cute place. The golf cart community was fun but golf cart was not in the best shape. There was no cover for the rain and tires had to be consistently filled. I have stayed in golf cart communities before and having one that is operating at optimal level is key. The roads were not great which just increased your risk of having issues with the golf cart. I am not sure if the grills were taken out but there were none by the pool. It also appeared the pool pump was broken and filled with green rain water. So if you planned on swimming don't bother bringing a swimsuit. If this is their off season for the pool and grills then we should have been informed. The beds were nice and comfortable. The place was nice but does need some touching up to be a vacation rental. The screened in porch was great to have but one screen had a hole and bugs could get in. The place was clean but there were dust bunnies under the couch and beds. It was a cute off the beaten path cottage. Having the fishing equipment was nice and Brian's supermarket so close was great.
Loved the fact of only getting on and off the island by golf cart... The place was very nice and relaxing... Had a very nice weekend with friends.... Would love to come back..
Enjoyable stay. Although the golf cart seemed an inconvenience at first, we all readily adapted and the children were enthralled with the ride! The cottage was well equipped and cozy comfortable.
My girlfriends and I chose the "cottage" for a "mom's weekend off" and it was the perfect choice! We wanted a place that was kind of close to home but still away from it all. The cottage was decorated so chic and the views were spectacular!!! We LOVED the golf cart aspect of the weekend. That added a lot of fun to the trip! We met Linda from the store and she was so sweet. I was kind of eerie about the run down camp next door (when I read the reviews), HOWEVER we were happy to be next to it because it's vacant and provided us more privacy!!! We definitely plan to return and would recommend this place to others! Thankyou to the owners for sharing their peaceful retreat with us!!!
We loved the relaxing stay we had at this cottage! It's a golf cart only community so it's perfectly quiet while you watch the boats go by out of the comfort of the living room! We will stay again!!
This place was fabulous. It is tastefully decorated, and the view from the living room and porch is gorgeous. The sun rose and set over opposite ends of the canal and was truly stunning. The golf cart ride was actually quite an enjoyable way to get to and from the house. The beds are very comfortable, the A/C works great, there are plenty of dishes and pots and pans, a grocery store and restaurants are nearby (Sarita's is especially good) and the place was very clean. We will definitely be back.
