    This is our second stay at The Pirate Cove. We absolutely love the atmosphere around this place. It is so peaceful and quiet in February. The owners contacted us the day of our arrival to let us know if we needed anything and left us a welcome bag with some treats.

  • The Perfect Location!


    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Pirate Cove. We spent countless hours on the deck on the river just soaking it all in and enjoying the scenery. The house was very accommodating and met all of our needs. The owners provide a binder with a wealth of information of information about the house, activities to do in the area and restaurant reccomndations. They even provided a small gift back with Pirate themed items. We will definitely be repeat guests. We cannot wait until our next stay.

  • Needs attention.


    The pictures in the add are deceiving. The bathroom including the tub was tiny. The beds were all very uncomfortable, the double is just a box spring and mattress on the floor. The living room furniture has a very dirty odor. The floors were dirty at check in. Lizards were in the bedroom. The outside of the house including the screen room is covered in mold/mildew. Could be a nice spot but needs cleaning and upgrades. Too small for a large family.

    Manager's Response:

    Hi Mary, we take guest feedback seriously and passed your comments on to the homeowner who would like to share the following:
    - We are sorry you had issues while you were in the home. The bathroom is small but the bathtub is standard size.
    - While bed and mattress taste is subjective, we are disappointed that this affected your stay. All of the beds in the home have bedframes and the bedframes in the guest room are on risers instead of wheels. We recently purchased 2 brand new risers that are more sturdy to replace the broken ones.
    - We take cleanliness very seriously so we reached out to our cleaner immediately to address your concerns. We have not noticed any mold or mildew at the property but we will have the home inspected to ensure the safety of our guests.
    We do all we can for our guests so they can have the best possible stay!
