    This property was a perfect location for all our adventures. Plus, it was quiet and mellow.

  • Perfect Solitude


    This place was perfect. Very quiet area. Was right in the river and I walked the the dock daily just to watch and hear the water. The back deck was perfect for drinking coffee in the quiet of nature and relax in the mornings or tea in the evenings. Well stocked with kitchen supplies and comfy beds. Lots of outlets for electronics. Well laid out. Something important for us is accessibility. Small steps to get in the front door and a few steps into the back. Close parking and level, stable ground. Safe for elderly or disabled. May be diff with wheelchair. All the switches were labeled (which I loved)! Will be Bach! 100%!!

  • Quiet and Relaxing


    Quiet, clean, super easy. The hosts were amazing. We got the isolation and coziness we were looking for. They were working construction on a larger place next door, so that may impact people seeking privacy. Sat on the back porch a lot, it was peaceful. Lots of stars at night.

    We had a short get away with family and this was perfect. Quiet and serene! The property was very clean, adorable, and they thought of everything! Dealing with the property management was easy and they were so nice. We had a wonderful time and are already talking about our next trip!
