Fishing Getaway
Fishing trip with a small group of family & friends. This unit met all the expectations and amenities we were looking for. The owners were great in communicating & accommodating our needs. We landed some nice salmon and the access to the river was one of the best I’ve seen. Will definitely be looking to book again in the near future! Thanks for having us!

Great Stay!
We had a really good time at this cabin! The location is beautiful, very secluded and right on the river. The house was the perfect size for 6 of us, and we really enjoyed playing ping pong all night long. There were a few issues with the place, but the host was very quick to respond and super accommodating. I would definitely recommend staying here!
