Soon after, Lisa, she bought three, additional, nearby riverfront homes, and has been inviting guests ever since. The homes are elegant, rustic residences, that are both casual and eye appealing.

Lisa enjoys filling these wonderful riverfront settings with comfortable furnishings, beautiful amenities, and the opportunity to enjoy a choice of many adventurous and leisurly activities, to the delight of guests.
I was searching for a rustic riverfront getaway - the kind I remembered as a child - a place o go with family and friends and leave the cares of the world behind! I wanted it not too fussy so it would have that 'relaxing' feeling. I wanted it to be waterfront, with plenty of beautiful views and fun water activities. I wanted it to have a big, covered deck, and plenty of room around the table. I looked for a LONG time, and when I finally found Firefly, I felt, 'This is it!', and the family fun began!
The covered, river view deck is perfect for year 'round outdoor enjoyment and dining. The views from the deck are wonderful, and the water is so close you can see the fish swimming. The river is slower and more lake-like in this location, making it a perfect spot for summertime fun. In the winter the warm glow of the river rock fireplace, the comfort of the soft leather sofas, and the fantastic views of the rushing river make this a wonderful choice for a cozy winter getaway.
