Canal was a little shallow ( during low tide) at the river but we did ok. The place was well furnished and clean. Thanks for letting us stay.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Jessica D.LaGrange, Ga

                                                                  We loved the hotel quality linens. We loved the cool atmosphere with all the well decorated furniture and modern conveniences. The direct tv and wifi were great. The screened in porch is heaven. The dock was just what we needed. We were in and out on the boat all day and being here between both marinas made it very convenient. My kids caught tons of crabs and catfish during VERY hot August right out back. It was all so perfect that we just had our rainy day wedding right there because no other venue was even nearly as beautiful or well supplied. We had 14 guests for a dinner party/wedding celebration and we were all pleased.

                                                                  Great location! Beautiful house!

It is in a great location--quiet neighborhood and a short idle out for fishing/scalloping. The house is spacious with every amenity you could ask for! We will definitely be back!! Thank you for sharing your home!

                                                                  Owner's Response:

We especially enjoyed the dock, being able to walk out the back door and get in the boat and go fishing and scalloping. John was very nice to deal with and we hope to go back next year.
