  • Home away from home vibes


    This is a cute property and has been made to feel like home. 2 bathrooms 3 bedrooms 2 pull out couches-we did not use, a washer and dryer and a fully functioning kitchen,-no dishwasher-unless you count yourself as one. We loved our stay. Our Athens Alabama experience was amazing. This property is right on the shore of the Elk River. On the balcony at night you can hear the coyotes scream and in the early hours of the morning you can hear the turkey's gooble. Very beautiful and very cool. We loved it and will be back.

  • Beautiful view


    We stayed at the property during Veterans Day weekend to celebrate our son’s 2nd birthday. Just us and my sisters. We really enjoyed the view of Elk river from every corner of the property.

    We had a little problem with a shower, and it was sorted and the property manager responded promptly.

    Overall it was a beautiful getaway for our family.

    Thank you

  • Great getaway on the river


    Loved this house on the river so much. It was perfectly clean, comfortable beds, and very easy kitchen to use. We cooked all weekend and had no issues. The view is incredible and the bird watching was amazing. Will definitely stay here again!
