Kitchy Rental in a Beautiful Setting with Plenty of Space - Great For Family!
We enjoyed access to the river, the peaceful setting, and LACK OF MOSQUITOS!!! We had no idea why we were able to sit near a river so late into the evening without a single bite, but it was priceless.
The cabin is large and well kept but a bit quirky. There are plenty of towels, linens, and kitchenware. It is clean and accommodating. The odd layout is fun for the kids to explore. The size of this place and number of beds makes it a great value, especially if you are staying with a group.
The back deck is amazing and provides a great view of the bend in the river. It was very relaxing to sit and watch low flying birds, fish jumping, and a variation of water crafts passing by. It is nice to be able to fish off the concrete dock 5 feet from the back deck. We brought a little inflatable boat, tied it off to the dock, and let the kids float around a bit. They loved it! We didn't catch anything, but weren't in it to win it ;).
There are your usual cabin issues including a dated stove (that is tough to clean up), spontaneous ants (don't leave any food out on counters), and a musky smell (which presents itself if you turn the air off). There is also a long list of "rules" posted that includes no fires (which is fine, but perhaps a fireplace shouldn't be listed under amenities).
The owners were extremely pleasant and helpful. The place was large and accommodating. It is 10 minutes from Indiana Beach, a drive-in theater,and some very cool corner shops. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend it!!!
Time at the beach
The property was very nice, however quite outdated. If you have issue with stairs, this is not the place for you.
clean simple and quiet
We enjoyed our stay, the only complaint was we went to use grill and there was no gas, they did offer to reimburse if we got it filled but we just cooked inside. I did not want to be bothered getting it filled. I would rent again.
Quirky but clean and peaceful.
We came to attend a funeral and found this home to be so peaceful near the water. We really enjoyed sitting on the deck. Plenty of chairs and cushions available. The house has a bit of a quirky layout. For example finding the door to the upstairs was an adventure but my sons thought it was cool. Be aware that If you have trouble with stairs this is not the place for you! The owner has notes everywhere which made it easy to locate everything, light switches etc.
They have well water so you might want to bring drinking water. It was very clean and well supplied with necessities. The owner was also prompt in answering any concerns.
Thanks for the review. I have blocked out are of the available dates . I am just renting to former renters thru VRBO. If you ever decide to rent again feel free to e/m thru VRBO and I will get back to you ASAP.
Thanks Steve Smart
The location by the river was the best
The place was very clean and everything we needed was there. The light switches were a bit inconvenient and the TV in the downstairs bedroom needed repair. We thought that for the price and the value, we were very happy.
Enjoyed the peaceful setting on the water
We were overall please with house, including the location and the size. We appreciated that there were kitchen paper products available - plates, foil, plastic wrap, etc. Only complaint is the freezer door does fully open.
