5/5 Excellent

Great long weekend on the river
These accommodations fit our needs very well. We had seven adults and seven children with us, it was snug but doable. Strong wifi and well stocked kitchen. Plenty of extra blankets and towels. Very pleasant property with bulbs in bloom and it was fun to explore along the beautiful stretch of river. Only two (minor) things not ideal for us- The upstairs bathroom does not lock which is not the best with so many people coming and going and half of them being young enough to forget to knock! And, also bathroom related- the extra stock of toilet paper was a little low for a group our size we had to run out and buy more within the first 24 hours of our three night stay. Again, minor things. That being said, we had a great time, and we were all remarking on how it would be great to come back in the summertime and spend more time on the large deck with beautiful view.
