      Anniversary

      5/5 Excellent

        Lovely place to stay!

        It's a wonderful place to unplug and relax. We sat on the deck and listened to the creek. It was very relaxing! Super clean, comfortable beds and plenty of room for a larger family! It is a bit of a drive from town with winding roads but worth the drive.

        5/5 Excellent

          Perfection!

          We were looking for a location that felt secluded but close to activities and we found it with this property. The rental has EVERYTHING you need, is comfortable, and relaxing. Owners are kind, professional and excel in their attention to details. We hope to come back.

          5/5 Excellent

            Friends get away

            As the owner told us and we expected, the road was a bit rough. Everything else was great and all six of us agree we will come back on our next float in this area.

            5/5 Excellent

              Girls getaway!

              My sisters and I celebrated birthdays and we couldn’t have picked a better place! We loved the feeling and hominis of it all. The location and beautiful piece of property along sinking Creek was relaxing and we did not want to leave! I could sit and listen to the water all day and night. The peace and tranquility was amazing. We found a new place to stay when we are not camping in the area! The owners are very thorough and you really only needed your clothes and food...they have thought of everything to make your stay welcoming! Highly recommend...
