Cool Water Retreat is a dedicated vacation rental with good wifi that sleeps 10 people located directly on the banks of the famous White River. It is located on a paved road approximately 15 minutes from most area attractions and shopping.
Guests have access to cabin and all amenities including stocked kitchen and W/D, wifi and 2 internet streaming TVs + cable, new stereo system for you to bluetooth, river frontage with step access (from Kay's next door), bonfire area, grill and starlight that will melt you. On main level there is 1 king, 1 full and 1 twin bed (each in separate rooms); upstairs - also in separate rooms- 1 queen, 1 queen, 3 twins. The cool breezes the river lets off around dusk comes standard. There is no dishwasher or ice maker as of this posting 9/11/16.
This is the cabin of my long time friends, The Garlands. I've been living in this area for 10 years. My hospitality hobby is now my profession. I will manage the booking of your stay and insure you have all questions answered and are a satisfied and returning guest! I'm in touch by text, phone and email before during and after your stay. There is a kindly neighbor, Kay, who handles the cleaning and such. She might welcome you with a hug if your paths cross. I can help make intros to local musicians, outdoors folks and artisans if you ask. Most likely you'll never see me.
Cool Water is a fantastic enclave - end of road and saddled along the river with almost no development on opposite side of bank. You may see folks touring about on their 'buggies' at dusk waving and just being neighborly. There are full time residents and part-timers. About a mile away are several public boat launches. Also you are within arms reach of Angler's White River Resort (the only restaurant in the county with an alcohol permit -accompanied by great scenic dining. It'll be hopping on the weekends)
Upon booking confirmation you will receive an area guide and recommendations from myself and some pals. This will also include more details about the immediate environs. Directions. keyed access. trash. etc.
*cell signals iffy depending on carrier and location at the cabin . Wifi calling and texting now available on newer model smart phones. Needs to be activated in advance. Also plenty of apps on the market that can keep you connected via wifi. There is a landline for local calls.
*there is a short line railroad a couple of hundred yards from the cabin. Its lonesome whistle will indeed blow on occasion. Not usually overnight though.
*steep steps to access the second level.
