Guestbook comments from the owner
Shirl;



I have repeatedly attempted to post the following Review. At least on HomeAway, your last review is over a year old. DO YOU HAVE THE ABILITY TO POST THIS?

THANKS AGAIN, Ron





MUCH MORE THAN WE EXPECTED! This is NOT the typical vacation rental. EXPECT TO BE VERY FAVORABLY IMPRESSED... First of all this home is on a totally private river front estate with the mountains all around. The home is very well appointed and decorated, with highest quality fixtures and appliances. The huge Living Room with high ceilings has four leather sofas providing plenty of room. There is a massive stone fireplace with remote control gas logs to take the "chill" off the mornings. The large "picture perfect" Dining Room has a second stone fireplace. All of this with views of the river and the mountainside beyond that. The Master Bedroom Suite is extraordinary. My grandsons didn't want to get out of the Hot Tub. We enjoyed the Fire Pit for Smores next to the river, and the extensive grounds for foot ball. So much to do in this area. Do not miss tubing or rafting down the river. As we were leaving, my grandson said, "I want to Stay! I don't want to leave!" We all agreed with him. DO NOT MISS OUT ON THIS FINE VACATION HOME....

BETTER THAN FHE PICTURES!

  • 5 of 5
We were pleasantly surprised to find the house nicer than the pictures. The river was so beautiful, with quite a few rafters passing by. River was shallow enough for our two teenagers to enjoy swimming. We thoroughly enjoyed coffee out on the deck every morning. With table seating for 8 inside and out, everyone had plenty of room to dine. Kitchen is small, so I would recommend bringing some sort of storage containers for food and kitchen items. We had a great time...thanks for sharing your home with us.

MAGICAL FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
I just returned home after a week in the River's Whisper. It far exceeded my expectations. This is a fabulous home in a lovely, serene location. We were two couples with 3 kids between us: my two (9 and 7) and my friends' 5-year-old boy. It is very private, very remote. We didn't have to worry that we were making too much noise (and we were a noisy bunch - singing camp songs by the fire) and we couldn't hear or see another soul except for the occasional kayaker or tuber on the river (oh yeah, and cows and roosters and groudhogs and birds). It is not too remote, however. Gasoline, groceries and restaurants are all less than a 15 minute drive. The house is clean and in fantastic condition. The furniture is all very high quality. There were plenty of sheets and towels. The coffee maker wasn't working when we arrived, but I emailed Shirl (the owner) and she dropped off a new one the next day.
The house is full of beautiful Native American Artwork especially pottery pieces and animals preserved and mounted. The decor is charming. It is not kid-proof. We had no incidents (thank goodness) of children damaging anything, but ours are kind of mellow kids. We opted for the damage insurance just in case and fortunately didn't need to use it.
Looking at the pictures of the property, I thought "This is too good to be true." Believe me, it really is that beautiful. The river is clean and cool and has a very gentle current. We went wading and tubing with the kids and never worried for their safety. Do bring water shoes. The river bed is rocky.
In the morning, we would take our coffee out on the deck and watch the blue herons dive for fish in the river. I never caught anything when I went fishing, but it was fun to try anyway.
The property is HUGE. The kids flew kites, caught fireflies, and played epic games of hide-and-seek in the yard. The house has wifi too, but the yard was a bigger draw!
When you go, make sure you go to Rose Creek Gem Mine. It is the real deal! 2 buckets of dirt for $10. We got the $7 "school group" buckets for the 5 and 7-year-old. There's was "salted" with some colorful quartz and calcite. But we found some good stuff in our cheap-o buckets too! I found a very small emerald and a golf-ball-sized garnet! The owner (who goes by "Dr. Rock") explained the whole process and answered all the kids' many many questions about mines and gems, etc. The mining area is covered too which made it a perfect rainy day activity.

OUR NEW FAVORITE VACATION RENTAL!

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely LOVED this place and can't wait to go back again. The photos do not do it justice. It is the perfect blend of rustic outdoors and comfy, luxury living. I loved being able to get up and get right into the river each morning. One morning, I floated in the river while a bald eagle went fishing right next to me.

We were able to fish, kayak, tube, and swim right in our own back yard, and just a few miles up the road, there is a place you can put your tubes in the river to float back home. It's about a 2-hour trip.

It's close to hiking, biking, waterfalls, and rafting.

There are stores and restaurants nearby in the town of Franklin (we particularly enjoyed Boone Thai).

The house was clean and comfortable (and the beds were absolute HEAVEN. And Shirl was great to work with. We plan to go back again and again.

AN IDEAL PLACE TO UNWIND

  • 5 of 5
I can't imagine a better place to relax and let go of the day-to-day stresses in our busy lives. The house is spacious and comfortable. The setting is absolutely lovely, and it provided a perfect jump-off spot for us to explore the area and all it has to offer. We really chose a great time of year, too. Every night we sat on the deck and watched in amazement as the hills sparkled with hundreds, maybe thousands, of fireflies. It was a vacation to remember!

PERFECT CABIN!

  • 5 of 5
Spacious, well-appointed cabin with great views. We enjoyed watching the baby cows in the pasture across the river. The cabin is located in a quiet area without a ton of other cabins on top of you....We loved hanging out on the deck and the fact that our dogs were welcome. It's not a vacation without the entire family! Thank you. We would love to come back for an entire week!
