      Guys Get Away

      Fun get away for friends. Great location.

      5/5 Excellent

        Great river property!

        I stayed with 5 other adults and we enjoyed this house right on the river. The stock of river gear, fire pit, and screened in porch made this a perfect river get away.

        4/5 Good

          Relaxing get away retreat

          If your looking to relax on the river with your family, this is the house for you! Quaint home, newly updated with great amnenities. Many kayaks, canoes & tubes to float on the river. We took our personal chairs to sit by the river, although there were some at the house. Kitchen is fully stocked with cookwear! No need to go out for dinner but good restaurants are nearby. Our only disappointment was the seating in the living room, there could be more. A large sectional would be perfect but it would not deter us from renting this house again. We hiked in the morning & relaxed in the river to cool off We will be back!
