Great house and view!
We had a great stay here! The water was low, which Mark informed us about before our stay, but we were able to fish and kayak anyway. This is a very comfortable house and Mark went the extra mile to be sure we were able to enjoy it!
Perfect Weekend Getaway!
This was the perfect place for a quick weekend getaway. The owner was amazing and made sure we had everything we needed! The weather wasn’t great, but our kids still had a blast. The tornado sirens went off and the owner called to let us know where the tornado was relative to us. That’s great service for people not familiar with the area. We will be back!
We all loved it!! We all dream to have a place like this of our own someday!!
Beautiful place to stay very well taken care of as well!! Mark was always quick to answer questions if we had them and made sure everything was perfect for us! We even caught some nice catfish from his dock to eat! We look forward to coming and staying again here in the near future!! Thanks for everything
Great view on the river and fantastic home.
The home was really nice. Modern with upstairs and downstairs bedrooms. 2-complete bathrooms. Really nice screened in porch. Very quiet and relaxing. Very large dock to hang out on and sun bath, fish off of or read a book. I would highly recommend this home. Mark is a great host.
Beautiful Setting and well maintained.
This property is sitting right on the river with two decks. Enjoyed drinking my coffee and watching the wildlife and the birds. We also sat on the dock in the afternoons. The cabin is well appointed and had everything we needed. Comfortable beds, which is always a plus. Mark came by to check on us and made us feel so welcome. We hope to go back again some day. Loved every minute.
Nice quiet house on the river for a great price
This house was better than expected. The price was great and the location was even better. The river side of the house was fully in the shade by 4 in the afternoon which makes for some very cool afternoons. Dock was recently redone and a great place to hang out. River was deep enough around the dock to jump in and float around which we did often. Best part of the house was the screened in porch, which we used every morning and afternoon.
Mark was a great host. He was very responsive to all our needs. He even took us up river and dropped us off so we could kayak back down to the house!
I wish we could have stayed longer than we did and would recommend this house to anybody looking for a getaway on the water.
The house is on Sugar Creek at the mouth of Elk River and is part of Wheeler Lake. Wheeler Lake provides great bass and crappie fishing and is considered one of the best cat fishing areas in the country.
Several of our guests have fished with Mike Mitchell with SouthernCats Guide Service and have highly recommended Mike. https://www.facebook.com/cprbigcats/
