Amazing find in Burlington
We had a four day stay in Burlington and this home away from home met our every need. What a honor to stay in a bit of Burlingtons history. Beautiful views for breakfast, cozy living room in the evening and well stocked kitchen for making dinners. Everything we could have asked for and more. Thanks you Angie in Burlington and Richard we had an amazing stay and hope to return soon.
We had a wonderful time! The house was awesome, very clean and cozy. The communication was wonderful. The views were fantastic. We will come back!
Amazing view, big spacious home, better than anywhere else
The pictures on line don't do it justice. This house is on a corner way up high overlooking the river, you can see for miles. The house has huge spacious rooms with giant picture windows just perfect for snuggling in the chair to watch the river below. Big sun porch with fireplace. Kitchen has everything and perfect for entertaining group. Gorgeous floors and architectural detail of the house itself. Has garage with a lift. Easy for handicapped person to get around. Everything you need is there, big comfy towels, great beds in each room, all the amenities were brand new. Bathroom has sit in shower and Jacuzzi bathtub. Owner kept in constant contact, easy to get hold of with anything you need. We travel alot and this is by far the best all around experience we have had with vrbo. Quaint town with lots to explore.
Beautiful home and views
We really enjoyed our stay and your beautiful home. We were in Burlington for a wedding and this home allowed us to relax and enjoy all the comforts of home while we prepared for the festivities. Thank you.
Thank you for your kind words...we appreciate having guests who are blessed by the wonderful view and the comforts we also enjoy so much about our home.
My family and I stayed at the Mississippi River Retreat for 7 days. The view of the Mississippi River was awesome. Everything in the home was perfect and charming. Richard and his Niece Angie were so helpful. Thank you!
July 4th get away
The 2 story white house outside was plain and unassuming, but once you entered, it was super amazing! Beautifully decorated and we loved the 3 season room! The manager Angie, touched base several times, and left treats and a sweet note! If you need a place to stay on a trip to Burlington, don't stay at a cheesy motel, when this gem is by the river and very reasonably priced!
