"We had a very enjoyable stay at this property! It was perfectly situated for the activities we planned: visiting the adjacent wildlife refuge; Discovery Center in Union City; fishing; relaxing; and enjoying access to the water. We couldn't locate a canoe rental place (so plan ahead if you want to rent a canoe), but power boats are available for $50-$70 dollars for a half day. The property is situated on a quiet street of small homes in close proximity to each other on the creek side of the street (the other side of the street is mostly wooded). Although the homes are close together, the layout and landscaping of the home provide ample privacy both indoors and in outside seating areas. The neighbors were very friendly and welcoming. Loud/late night partiers would probably not be a good fit for this peaceful neighborhood. Property owners Bob and Carole live next door, but were not at all intrusive (I never even met them) and responded quickly to a few questions I texted. The home is quite comfortably furnished and very clean - you'd never know from the quality, condition, or smell that it is a dog-friendly property. Some (non-threatening) neighborhood dogs roam freely, and we enjoyed meeting them on our walks. The master bed has a comfortable mattress and high quality linens, providing a great night's sleep. The home has a large flat screen TV and wifi, but no cell reception. We drove 5 minutes to the wildlife refuge visitor's center when we needed a signal. We had all pots, pans and utensils needed to easily grill and cook. The kitchen is stocked well enough that no immediate trips to the grocery store were needed to get settled in. Dish soap, paper towels, coffee/tea/filters, salt, pepper, sugar and various spices were available. Backup garbage bags, foil/saran wrap, and laundry soap were not provided, so be prepared to provide those if you need them, and you may want to bring your own food storage containers if you use them for leftovers. The ice machine is very convenient and there is also a reach-in chest freezer. There were good restaurants within 15 minutes drive (homemade onion rings at Boyette's definitely worth a return trip). All the locals we met were super friendly. We were very happy with our stay, highly recommend the property, and would definitely return to this home on future visits. Thank you Carole and Bob for a wonderful family getaway!"
