Christmas at the Cabin on the River

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this property. The setting is lovely, on a quiet (gravel) road along this broad beautiful river. The community is gated and secure, but it does not feel 'developed', there's lots of woods and so many deer and birds. We were able to walk as long as we wanted on the roads, felt like wide paths in the woods. We spent Christmas Eve and Day with 8 people and all were very comfortable and had enough privacy and bathrooms. The kitchen was well-stocked to cook a grand Christmas dinner, and plenty of room. Very cozy fireplace. A great memory.

Beautiful cabin and great location!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay! The cabin is well maintained. It could use more lighting because the inside is dark, but other than that, it was terrific!

spacious cabin with just the river and you

  • 4 of 5

My husband and i spent a week in this very spacious cabin. We enjoyed being right on the wide water, hearing its soothing sounds and watching the geese land and feed just feet away from the bank of the river. The cabins quiet and private location at the end of the lane was a plus. We liked walking along the river road and watching the deer in the front yard. If you plan on doing much cooking, the kitchen could use a better cutting board, and some food storage containers. Mr Williams was very kind and accommodating with a quick response time to all our questions.

Great quiet weekend

  • 4 of 5

This house is at the end of a gravel road making it feel very secluded but also safe as it is in a gated community. Great for kids because they have a neighborhood pool. My son tried fishing in the river but had no success.. Still enjoyed himself. The owner is very accommodating too!
