The good things about this place is the view of the river.. And that's it!

The bad is that when you are renting this place it's not a vacation at all. It's more like prison. You stay above the owners witch stay down stairs and it feels like you are totally invading their space when you stay here. Because the owners stay under you they have tons of house rules you have to abide by on your stay so that you do not disturb them. You have curfews on when you can and can't shower, you can't run any water past 10pm, witch makes it impossible to fish as long as you want and shower in the evening, you cant run the dish washer or washing machine in the evenings, the washer and dryer don't even work, they don't supply hand soap or toilet paper, you are not allowed to enter the river unless you use the little steps way out of the way, your not allowed to put anything on the porch.. The ppl who rent the place live under the apartment and are always watching and micro managing everything you do. All they say is NO, to everything you do. They will change the rate of your stay on any given day and blame it on their poor English and say that you didn't understand them in the first place... This place would have been nice if ran by anyone else. But unfortunately this is as far away from a vacation feeling as you can possible get. Totally not worth the price or the hassle of dealing with the owners. I highly recommend to anyone to stay away from this place!

Exceptional location, beautiful views

Meticulous kept yard

The problem lies with the how the owners relate with the guests. Before I could put down my bags down or properly greeted the owners we were given a lengthy list of rules so we would not disturb them. It was shocking

I never felt comfortable there

We were told not to excessively walk around the apartment or run the water after 10pm

The owners stay below the apartment and I felt like I was invading their space.

I think there is potential for this property if the owners were to change their attitude towards their paying guests

Beds were uncomfortable and there wasn't any drapes or window coverings

Beautiful property - pricey - apartment right above owner

  • 2 of 5

Overall - it's a 5 star location, but it's pricey and too close to the owner.

I have mixed emotions on this property. It is indeed a beautiful setting with wonderful views of the river. The apartment has plenty of room to move about, and it is clean. The owner takes great care to make sure everything stays nice. The owner tries to address any of your needs, including advice on where to catch fish. I believe the owners have only the best intentions in mind when working with guests, and they want only the best experience possible for their guests.

However, the problem that can't be overcome is the fact that you stay right above the owner's apartment. Because of that, we had a 10:00 curfew on showers, dishes, etc (this was a huge deal, because we didn't know this until after we arrived). We had to walk right past their family guests on the deck below. We had to be careful walking upstairs for fear of too much noise. We could only approach the river from a specific place/trail. When viewing the property on line, I had no indication that I was renting a house with the owner living in it, or the rules about curfews, river approaches, etc.

For the price of the apartment, I really wanted privacy and relaxation. Since we were right on top of the owners, that was not possible. We were under constant scrutiny to make sure everything stayed in order. The 10:00 curfew made it impossible to stay on the water as long as I wanted to, and still have time in the late evening to shower, wash clothes, etc. I like to stay on the water till dark, and up this far north, it stays light till after 9:00pm.

The owner mentioned that they will be building more "suites" in the near future that would give more privacy, and I think that's a great idea both for the owners and future guests.

CRAZY CRAZY CRAZY!!!!!

  • 1 of 5

The owners live downstairs and are constantly micromanaging everything! The way you go up and down the stairs, to and from the river, when you can shower and on and on and on. The washer and dryer didnt work. There is a 10 pm curfew for showering! We went for vacation but this was no vacation. It felt more like prison. DO NOT RENT!!!!

Owner's Response: We had a very polite conversation with the group leader and he apologized for his wife bad behaviour. We frankly believe that she has problems everywhere she goes travelling.

The house is right on the River , it was absolutely beautiful. The river is crystal clear, full of fish.

We saw bald Eagles and dear from the living room window.

The house is very clean and had all we needed.

The owners met us and were very kind and gracious and told us what sights to see .

The owner is a fishing guide and was Kind enough to

get us a Salmon and even barbecued it for us in the backyard. There is a table to eat dinner outside under the trees.

Great location for all the sights and convenient to the grocery store.
