Better than we could have ever immagined

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was bigger, nicer and cleaner than the pictures even show! The ammentities are all there and the beds are COMFORTABLE!!!! You really cant even ask for a better location, it is the last cabin on the road and it is literally 10 feet from the river.

Our crew used it for the winter but I can only imagine how peaceful this place would be on warm summer nights over the fire pit.

The owner was great to deal with, and has a great attitude.

I will be renting every year, making this our annual destination!!

If you are looking for a great place......LOOK NO FURTHER!

Peaceful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was much needed. We had a peaceful getaway, wine , fire , the river and our dog. We couldn't ask for anything more. Thank you for allowing us to bring him. The cabin was beautiful. Next year we will plan on hiking with the boy.

Girls weekend

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Marlun was great! We gathered for a long, girls only weekend and had a blast!

We fished w/no luck, ate to much, drank just enough, laughed a bit loud, canoed, kayaked and floated in the sun! The kitchen is well stocked & the beds are comfy!

Your place is very nice and we are planning a return trip next year!

PS- if you see a fish wearing glasses- they belong to my daughter!

A beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

We just got home from our long weekend at the Marlun. Wow. My husband and I, our 3 boys (8, 10, & 14) and my parents all had a great time. We were looking for somewhere that we could bring our 11yr old lab with us and he enjoyed playing by the river with the boys and napping on the deck. The view of the river is gorgeous, two eagles sat across from us the entire time. We relaxed, hunted crawfish, watched turtles, and even floated from the bridge right to the cabin on some inflatable sleds we had thrown in the truck! It was so nice to have the boys spend time away from video games and internet! Quiet and away from it all but still close enough to a general store to be convienient if you forgot anything. The house is beautifully decorated and the pictures in the listing just don't do it justice. So glad we went!
