This property made me a hero with my spouse! Every single detail was well above and beyond the standard for this price range. Even before we arrived our hosts helped us arrange pet sitting for our dog during the days we would be out exploring the area. The location turned out to be perfect and right in the center of all the areas we wanted to explore.
The apartment was lovely with great big picture windows to see out to the woods and the beautiful river. It is apparent that the owners put a lot of thought into guests comfort to insure all of our needs were met. The property was clean and well cared for, and felt like an apartment for cherished family members and not a rental.
We loved the huge bedrooms! The bed was super comfortable, with pillows in an assortment of softness/firmness. Not only were quality bed linens provided (plenty of extra blankets, and a gorgeous quilt), but kitchen hand towels and bathroom towels were provided and of good quality.
We enjoyed swimming in the clean river, which even at low tide had a nice deep channel we could walk out to and enjoy swimming in. In the mornings we would watch the sun rise sitting on the dock with our coffee while our dog swam and wandered the property having the time of her life. We watched herons fish and surveyed the comings and goings of an osprey from a nearby nest.
Even though the owners live above the apartment, I recommended this property to friends who are newlywed. The first evening we arrived we laid down just to take a little nap at 6pm and slept for 12 hours straight without hearing a sound. After that one evening we heard some faint footsteps above us - so insignificant when one realizes if this property was a stand alone it would be four times the price.
So many little details impressed me about this property – I wish I had written them down as the details have faded after the rest of our trip, but I can tell you we loved it so much that my husband asked if we could please change our spring vacation plans and come back here and we sure plan to. Our dog loved the river apartment so much when we left she dug into the ground and didn’t want to leave, and we felt exactly the same.
