  • Perfect spot for family time!


    We were here for a weekend stay and my boyfriend is from Clinton. This was the perfect place to have his family stop in and out for coffee, lunch and dinner! We even had a slumber party on Saturday night with his son, daughter in law and grandkids! Such an amazing time at a great location! The river was so peaceful to wake up to.

    Pleasantly pleased with everything. So very cute with lots room! Booked this place before reading the reviews. The reviews were negative. So glad the reviews were wrong. Only thing that would make this place more pleasing would be air conditioning upstairs. Difficult to sleep in heat. I should have noticed while reading the advertisement for this place was that it didn’t have air conditioning. Otherwise, very happy.

  • False advertising, deplorable conditions, horrible.


    It took me a while to do this because it was traumatic. There was no first floor bedroom as advertised. The house was damp and musty. The bedding wasn't clean. We had to carry my 92 year old mother up and down the flight of 16 stairs. It was a fire hazard because there was only one exit on the main floor and the sliding doors on the second floor along with the balcony were not safe. There was a plastic tablecloth or something covering one of the beds with sheets that had no elastic. There were no curtains or blinds for privacy or to provide shade. I reached out to the number provided on the fridge and never got a reply. I would expect some type of compensation or refund. It was awful and your company should be ashamed to have them in your listing.

  • Amazing location tucked in your own world.


    The location on the river was amazing. The house was well equipped for guests and had a great layout for hanging out. We had a daily woodpecker visitor that really wanted to join us knocking on the windows. The house could use some work, a couple outlets we went to use did not work on main floor and upper master room, and one lamp had no light bulb. The upper sliding doors were difficult to open and close. But overall a nice stay.
