  • 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.

  • Cutest place by the creek


    It was a beautiful home and perfect for me and my baby to stay at while my girl scouts were at a nearby camp. A great place to stay if you can’t stay at the girl scout camp. Everything was setup so beautifully and it felt very much like home just with a better view and surroundings!

  • Gorgeous little piece of heaven


    Everything about the river cabin was perfect. No better way to start your day then sitting on the back porch enjoying coffee watching the river
