    The house was very nice and spacious. But we didn’t like how far the house was from the main road. It was difficult navigating the road, especially at night. Also, the trash was piled up in the garage when we arrived.

  • Beautiful with Dangerous Access Road


    The road to the property was hazardous. It was raining most of the weekend and although we knew it was a gravel road with a very tight turn from the highway, we were unprepared for the single lane with drop offs and no rails—it triggered PTSD symptoms in the 2 of us who have been in MVAs. Fortunately we did not have to travel out after dark or during the rain. We also had some confusion about the thermostat and our contact person was less than helpful. I got no response to my text for about 30 minutes. When I called, I got an answer but was asked to send a picture of the thermostat and didn’t hear back at all after that. We figured it out after about an hour without their help. The house and property were beautiful and spacious, but bring extra essentials, such as toilet paper, paper towels, trash bags, and cups if you have more than a few people.

  • No Gas to Grill


    I didn't see the fine print that the kayaks are not available until April. I requested that they allow us to use them, but no go. I did get a text message from the owner, but no kayaks.

    We arrived on a rainy evening. The road to the house was about as bad as all the other reviews. GPS only gets you so far. There was a sign on a tree at a fork in the road which gave us some confidence. The dirt/gravel road was a bit soft with the rain and it gave us pause. You have about a half-mile still to go when the GPS quits. We kept driving the narrow road. There is only room for one car with either a downslope or trees to stop the fall. Eventually, we came to the house on the river. Very secluded, private, and peaceful.

    It was March Madness time, so one of the first things I focused on after unloading was to check out the main TV. I struggled for quite some time before I finally found the YouTube app worked. Whew! I was trying everything. Couldn't download other apps. Couldn't cast from my phone.

    Then it was time to grill burgers for dinner. Nope, the grill wouldn't get over 200 degrees. We finally gave up on grilling and took the burgers inside to fry on the stove.

    Of course, this set off the very loud smoke alarms which would not turn off. Toni, our contact never answered the phone on numerous attempts. She finally did answer when the alarm was blaring. She told us to unplug or take out the battery of the alarm, but it was so high up on the wall, there was no way to reach it. She said she would come to the house the next day to fix the grill. She never showed up and did not answer the phone again.

    We wanted to grill hot dogs for lunch the next day, so I went to Walmart and exchanged the propane tank. The grill did get a little hotter, but still not perfect. I'm sure the regulator on the grill is shot. After lunch, my son-in-law could smell gas leaking. This is an explosion waiting to happen. The owner did give me a credit of $50 for my troubles, but we would have preferred the burgers.

    The house in general was nice. The master bathroom had a spa tub and a large shower. The kitchen was adequate with a nice island to gather around. The outside decks were good as they were covered. Part of the deck was screened. We used the 2-car garage for our cars. We enjoyed the firepit as well.

    At $395/night with all of the fees, its a bit pricey, but it can sleep 10 people. We celebrated my wife's birthday. She liked the house.

  • Peaceful Oasis


    We thoroughly enjoyed the coziness of this property! The kitchen was absolutely beautiful and great for gathering! We could not have found a better place. The only thing we were a bit surprised about was the narrow and dangerous road to the house but it was well worth it once we got to the house!
