Beautiful area. Comfortable home. Convenient to many locations.
Modest, clean, and comfortable with beautiful river access
Easy reservation process and wonderful owners. Our family loved having the river in the backyard to throw a fishing line or two. Close to Johnson City and the Gray Fossil Site, as well as hiking trails. We will be back!
After booking this property I was contacted by the owner who welcomed me to his rental. Franklin was very nice and helpful. He gave me some fishing tips and explained the area to me. He allowed me to communicate with him directly in case I had anymore questions, which I did.
Upon arriving at the rental, the place was exactly as described online. If you are pulling a trailer it may be a little difficult to get in and out of the driveway but the traffic in that area is not bad so you have plenty of time to maneuver in the parking lot across the street and back in. When we got into the house, it was neat, clean and homey.
We quickly unpacked and headed out back to the river. The back porch has plenty of relaxing chairs and a gas fire table for those cool nights. The back yard has a nice fire pit but we didn't use it because it rained on our stay. We stepped up onto the raised area at the edge of the river and were just in awe as to how beautiful and peaceful the view was. If you want to be by the river in a nice place, look no further. We grabbed our fishing gear and fished for an hour or so and caught three fish on spinner baits.
The following day we put in our raft at Wilbur Dam and floated down river while taking in the beautiful scenery and fishing. We floated down river right up to the back of the property and pulled the raft out there. We caught several fish that day and had the best time.
After a long day, we went into town and grabbed some groceries and cooked ourselves some dinner. The rental had everything we needed to prepare our meals and wash clothes if needed. I would definitely stay here again.
