We stayed in the house with friends (three couples, two with toddlers) and it was a perfect place for little kids. The river was an easy walk down the hill with a nice shallow pool for little people and a great swimming hole for big people. The house was comfortable and clean and it was great to have the use of the little cottage for the couple who didn't want to be woken up by toddlers at 5:30 am. Great deck for evening with a beautiful view of the park. A good thing to note is that there are no basics in the kitchen (sugar, oil, etc.) so you really need to bring absolutely everything with you.
