  • Clean, enjoyed kayaking and fishing.


    Enjoyed kayaking. Learned from neighbor to call Rainbow River & Kayaks which was a 10 minute paddle to their river location and they transported kayaks and us to KP Hole to float down Rainbow River. Enjoyed 4 season room during rainy day.

  • No comfort


    It started at check-in we could not access the property due to dead batteries for electronic lock. Property manager sent 2 guys over to gain access . Changed batteries in lock then found batteries dead in thermostat. Unpacked and settled in for the evening. Discovered the worst bed possible in primary bedroom. Looked at other bedrooms and choice was another terrible bed or 2 kids singles. Chose primary bed and was awakened by smoke alarm due to dead battery around 3am. Spent the next day hiking and came back to not a comfortable chair in the house. Area was great but dreaded returning each day to uncomfortable sofa then uncomfortable bed. We left 4 days early as we could not get a night sleep. Odour sponges through out the property . Owners should invest in some upgrades for the money they charge per night.

    Manager's Response:

    Hi Ron, thanks for your review. After going over your feedback with the homeowner, we wanted to address the following items:
    - The owner apologizes for the inconvenience during check-in, but we're glad the issue with the battery was resolved quickly. The owner and their property manager have taken steps to avoid this in the future.
    - Mattress and furniture taste is subjective, and the owner has never received any complaints about this in the past; however, we apologize that the bed and furniture did not suit your personal preferences.
    - The owner works hard to keep the property well-maintained, and the home is provided with all of the conveniences needed.
    The owner does all they can to make the best possible stay, and we look forward to this property hosting many satisfied guests!

  • Great location


    Great location and property management! House was very accommodating and right on river couldn't have asked for a better area! *** BUT **** seems like the "neighbor " is not a fan of the home being listed as a VRBO .. they mad several calls to property manager Nancy. She handle very well with us and we were thankful she didn't let it ruin our vacation.

  • Excellent House


    This house is amazing! Very clean and very well maintained. The dish ware is new and good quality, linens and towels are also new. They have plenty of good books and board games.

    The only thing I didn’t like is a $207 cleaning fee. Although the house was perfectly clean the fee seems excessive considering you need to tidy up (take care of the dishes, garbage, linens...).
