  • House on the water


    Great location, had fun playing in water and exploring with the kids. Ran crawfish traps and made a delicious Alfredo. Huge perk was the playground/small park directly adjacent to rental. The kitchen was minimally stocked so if you plan to cook be sure to bring you own seasonings, critical utensils, etc.

  • Beautiful Gem on the River


    This cabin was great and the setting very beautiful and peaceful. Comfortable inside and out, we loved listening to the river below and the cicadas above and identifying the elk sounds from a friendly resident at the park. We enjoyed quiet nature walks by the river and preferred staying on the patio and reading a book instead of going anywhere, which was our whole point in getting out of the city! We went from stressed to refreshed in a few days. We hope to return here again!

  • Great location!


    The location is exactly what we were looking for. It was so nice to sit by the river and get out of the Phoenix heat. Cabin could have been cleaner, but overall it was great!

  • River cabin


    We had a great time staying in the river. We spent hours out in the breeze enjoying the sounds and the view. We were visited by an eagle and hawks during our stay. We plan to return in the near future!

  • So relaxing


    This property was clean and neat inside. We all loved to sit in the back patio area and enjoyed the sounds of the water, birds and sounds of nature. This was just what we needed. The neighborhood was quiet and residents we met were very friendly as we took leisurely walks around neighborhood.
