September Getaway
This was not our first visit to Fish Tales. We have enjoyed ever stay. It's a quaint cottage with a perfect location. It's quiet and relaxing. The river view is beautiful and the fishing is great. Love it! The Fullers

5/5 Excellent

Fish Tales was exactly what we needed to get away! It was quiet, restful and well appointed. Catherine is responsive and easy to work with. We'll be back!

5/5 Excellent

Wonderful and relaxing spur-of-the-moment vacation!
My husband and I, our 19 year old twin boys (men) and two dogs had a great time - something for everyone! Fish Tales was great and location beautiful. There was plenty to do at the house or as a tourist in surrounding area, highly recommend it!
