I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for the use of the Howard-Smith house for the last week in June. I and my family had a magnificent time. We had perfect weather and constantly enjoyed views from the porch and from Blueberry Island. The house was better than advertised and very well stocked with towels, linens, books, glasses, dishes, puzzles and kitchen equipment. I now look forward to the arduous task of trying to coordinate schedules so we can visit again next year or the year after (at the latest)! Once again, thank you very much.
This is the second time we rented this property. The only complaint we have is that the week goes by too quickly. This place is heaven on earth. Our kids swam, fished and kayaked for a week straight. We can't wait to return.
I love this place, the huge 700 acre nature preserve that this high end 1930s house sits in the middle of provides privacy that is hard to come by. The view from the front porch all the way to Canada gives you an eagles eye view of everything that is happening on the river. The peace and quiet helps restore my connection to the earth and I return to reality with a new perspective on life.
We had four couples and five children under the age of 5 at the house and it was amazing! The house had everything we needed, was very comfortable and welcoming and the island was perfect! I was also impressed with how well prepared the kitchen was for extensive cooking and thanks to the large dining table, we were able to have all our meals together. It's a great spot for swimming, kayaking, hiking, etc. we really had a fantastic time and would definitely return to this house!
Thanks for a great time!
This well kept, very comfortable house is possibly the nicest spot on the River, very private and quiet with amazing views and sunsets. We spent many hours swimming back and forth to the island in front of the house which is owned by the family, also a great spot for a picnic. On this large island you can walk/bike for hours. We saw lots of deer, some turkeys, and all sorts of birds including bobolinks. At night the resident loons serenade. Entertaining the kids was easy. They loved the tubing and skiing which felt safe in this quieter part of the river, fishing is good for a few hours each day and as I said swimming. There's a good selection of board games and puzzles when they tire of all that.
I appreciated the house for it's charming decoration and very well equipped kitchen that made cooking for a crowd fun. The porch was a great place to settle down with a book in the afternoon while keeping an eye on the kids swimming down below. There are actually 6 bedrooms now so even though the family asks no more than 10 guests there are plenty of sleeping options. Just recently they have added a queen size bed in a comfortable new room at the boathouse - only thing is there's no bathroom, not such a problem. The dock is new and comfortably held all 3 of our boats with room to spare, boathouse too. We had a fantastic week. Thank you!
