5/5 Excellent

Perfect Minimalist Style Getaway
My boyfriend and I came down to tube ginnie springs and this property was the icing on the cake for getting close to "off the grid." We enjoyed our stay very much. Being right on the river was perfect for falling asleep. We heard lots of owls. We made use of the firepit and charcoal grill. The only thing that I would note is there are a few other tiny homes/cabins in close proximity. We were there during the week so we had it all to ourselves but not so sure that would be the case on a weekend.

5/5 Excellent

Rustic but peaceful!
We had a wonderful time! They represented it and communicated well so we knew what to expect and were prepared. For example, the GPS not taking you right there and the toilet being located away from the house. It was as clean as to be expected camping outdoors in a screened house. It was peaceful and beautiful. We watched the sunset and sunrise from the dock, roasted s’mores over a campfire, and listened to the birds and crickets as we fell asleep. Loved it!

5/5 Excellent

Great place off the grid
Lovely place in the middle of nowhere

1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
This really shouldn’t be on Expedia’s Lodging category. Much more like camping. The sides were screened so when the thunderstorm came through, we got wet! We actually had to try and sleep while holding an umbrella.

5/5 Excellent

If you like nature and silence this is it!
Came for a weekend getaway with my husband. Enjoyed the privacy and off the grid feeling. Loved listening to the owls and crickets at night. Perfect glamping experience. We brought our jet skis and launched at several boat ramps and enjoyed the river and its gators and turtles. Perfect and well needed R&R!
