  • Nice weekend stay


    My boyfriend and I stayed the weekend to celebrate my birthday. Brought along the English mastiff. Nice house by the river. We especially enjoyed the outside space… covered patio even nice in the rain. The house was clean and comfortable and thoughtfully fitted out with just about anything you might need.(The only minor problem was the sagging mattress on the larger bed. It could maybe be replaced, as it sleeps a bit like a bowl.) Still, really enjoyed the property and hope to come back again.

  • Absolutely loved our little creek get away!


    We really enjoyed our stay! The age and history of the house was really cool. It would be neat to have information on the old portraits (if they are associated with the property) or other "fun facts" around the house. The separate add-on room was convenient. We were able to give the teenagers the house (which they thought was the coolest thing ever) and we had our separate space. Morning coffee on that patio was the best way to start a vacation. The creek was comfortable. We spent several hours just hanging out down there, swimming, rock hounding, and catching crawdads. We also saw three shooting stars and one fire ball stargazing just up the BLM road. We sure hope to back again soon. We got in after dark so just wanted to inform others, that Google will say youre there a few hundred yards before the actual house. The house is the last one on the right, right before the bridge.
