    The well water needs to be treated. It's unsat and health department should shut it down. Plus the price was 135 and night but they add in a $200 fee also. I would not recommend at all. I'd give it a zero star if possible

  • Very disappointed


    The one thing I can say about this place is it is located on the river. Everything else was miserable. I had to drive to town to contact the property manager to find out the wifi code, it was not left in the property anywhere. We didn't have TV the whole time as we didn't bring our own streaming device. The neighbors have erected a gate at the entrance of the street, so we had to open it and close it everytime we left or returned. The floors sagged, the sink and toilet were stained yellow from the water. Had to brush my teeth with bottled water. There were spider webs all around inside the house. I could go on, but I believe my point has been made. I gave it a two ONLY because it was on the river.

    Manager's Response:

    Hi Scott, we take it seriously when guests let us know that we missed the mark. We followed up with the homeowner after reading your feedback, and they would like to share that we have updated the listing to let guests know that there is no TV provider, but guests can bring their own Apple TV or Roku if they'd like to. They're looking into all of your concerns and plan to make the appropriate changes where necessary. We appreciate you letting us know of your concerns as it gives us the means to improve and provide 5-star experiences moving forward.

  • The place was amazing. Great for all ages and pets.


    My family and I absolutely loved this place. Quite beautiful peaceful little place. The husband and wife that take care of the property are so nice, friendly and very helpful. There's all kinds of things to do while staying there. We loved it there, only bad thing about the place, is the rusty well water. Which is most likely due to having very old pipes which they were in the process of changing when we were there. All in all we loved it.

  • There is a River to look at....


    And the a/c worked, the stove was clean but the three pots suppled were gross. Only one TERRIBLE futon to sit on and the TV didn't work. Found out it hadn't been maintained for quite awhile and they were trying to do a quick fix. But you can't turn years of neglect around in a few days. We LEFT after first day. Takes a lot for my husband to leave after paying.
