The beds were very comfortable, living space just right. Loved the screened porch!! Loved the decor. We had breakfast at the Swing Inn, good food & very good prices.
Took a bit to get used to trains but definitely not a show stopper!
The stairs are a bit tricky because of how the front door swings opens.
Thank you for spending time with us!! I know the screenporch is the.bomb, glad you had the opportunity to utilize it!! Would love to have you come back and stay again!
our time at river road hideout
Our stay was pleasant and enjoyable. There were a few issues as with anything. Nothing is ever perfect.
In case you aren't aware there is mouse entrance outside and Mr. Mouse was inside. Also the wasps are getting in thru the wall, we think in the bathroom
Some kind of a railing by the door would be a nice safety addition.
Allin all it very nicely fixed up for an older house and very comfortable.
First of all, thank you for staying with us! I wish I had been made aware of your wasp issue while you were there...this is for sure the time of year they can be a nuisance and I always try to locate any possible entry areas. So I apologize for that. And now mice in the fall..i will definitely look at entry areas!
Worked perfect for our Motorcycle trip.
The River Road house worked ideal for our three night stay. We used this as our home base for a motorcycle trip, and enjoyed our stay. The four bedrooms worked out well. The screen porch was perfect for evening relaxing. I would use this location again. There are bars, and restaurants within a short walk. Really, the only negative I have is a small one...the gas grill probably could be upgraded, but we only used it one time. Owners were very quick to respond to the one question I had while we were there. Very nice...I would surely recommend. Thank you!
Hi Kirk...thank you staying with us these past few days, and we're glad you enjoyed our home! It is great to be able to relax outside after a long day of riding and have no bugs and still be able to catch the news or a ball game on tv! The grill is due for its rotational replacement this winter. Thanks for starting the load of towels and dishwasher.
Very much appreciated! We look forward to having you back in the future....Merrilyn
Mystery Birthday Tour
I had stayed here before with some other people on a Motorcycle run over a year ago. I decided it would be a great place to take the ladies on a Mystery trip. We had a blast and we loved using the screened in porch! There was 8 ladies and we all said we would come back again. I recommended this place.
Haha! A mystery birthday tour, what fun!... I am so glad that you came back for another stay, and we hope to see you all again!
We had a terrific weekend stay in August and spent most of our Saturday out on the water boating all day. The property was well maintained, and the screened deck was a must, since the Mississippi has a lot of bugs in the summer. I think we spent more time out there, than in the house.....The sunsets were absolutely stunning.........My only concern was that the only parking was on the highway going through town, and I had a large pontoon, but we worked around it, and had a blast. I will certainly rent this place again. Great place for a getaway.
Jim, so glad you and your group had a good time! We appreciate your staying with us and look forward to having you back again!
For a group of seniors, it posed some challenges.
We probably would not have chosen this place had we known both bathrooms are on the main level, with none upstairs where the 3 bedrooms are. Navigating steps during the night wasn't enjoyable for us older folks. This probably would be no concern for younger people! We had a few other unexpected surprises that put a bit of a damper on our visit. For the price it was OK
The Driftless area has unparalleled motorcycling, bird watching, fishing and hunting. Along with an abundance of hardwood trees that offer some of the the most picturesque views during the changing of the colors, people travel from all over to immerse themselves in nature's beauty. The bluffs along the Mississippi also provide one of the best places in the country to view and observe the majestic Bald Eagle.
