Rented this home as well as the adjacent Fryar's Green guesthouse for a week long family reunion. There were many positives that have been well articulated in other reviews. The wide open space views and privacy are wonderful. Howerver, there are some factors to consider for potential renters:
-The river is not as easily accessible and friendly as we had hoped at this loction. You have to walk through tall grass and around a long ditch. Vehicle access would require driving off road. The river is quite wide with a strong current at this location and large boats passing by. Swimming and canoeing/kayaking is not simple here. We splashed around a bit along the shore once, one of our party had a leech bite, that was enough for us.
-This house does not have a large dining room table for large family meals.
-Power went out twice in the evenings of our stay for several hours when there were thunderstorms. This was an area outage that presumably happens often at that location.
-We were constantly fighting sugar ants infestation. The property manager regularly sent a person to spray the windows and other openings..
-The property manager does not answer the phone immediately when you call about an issue. The issue is resolved within a day.
Again, there are many positives. With more proactive management, this place would be 5 stars easily.
