Proud Mary memories

  • 5 of 5

Proud Mary was exactly as the owner described..cozy..quaint and well furnished with many amenities our family enjoyed on our brief stay. The owner was very responsive to any questions we had and seemed genuinely concerned that we had an enjoyable time while we were her guest. The scenery was beautiful and the house was perfect for our family with kids and all activities were nearby. On a scale of 1 to 5 ,I would rate our experience a 4.5..Thank you

A quaint house located right on the river! Beautiful views from the various decks! Plenty of space!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at this home! It was a great get away filled with fun and memories made with our children and granddaughter! The owner made sure that all of our needs were met, including going out of her way to purchase new fans, because I had asked about them if we turned off the air. There were fresh flowers in the kitchen, plenty of clean towels, toys for our granddaughter and the kitchen had everything needed to cook meals. It is located just a short drive to downtown St. Joe and beautiful Lake Michigan! We loved coming back to such a nice place after spending the day at the beach! Quiet location, relaxing and convenient!

What a relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Right from the beginning, when I contacted the owner to rent the property, I had a good feeling. The owner was very helpful with our vacation plans and always very quick to get back to us. The house was in peaceful setting down a quiet, dead-end road. It had everything you need away form home with kids. There was a bunch of toys for the kids to play with and a great swing set. Several nights we enjoyed the river view while grilling as the kids played in the yard. We also rented a canoe and floated down to Lake Michigan in it. We have many great memories from our vacation there and can't wait to come back next year.

great stay!!!

  • 4 of 5

This rental has the best of both worlds...... things to do on the river and yet close to the town. The house is decorated very sweet beds comfortable and the house has everything you need. We vacationed with our teens and they were never bored (how is that possible)!!!!! You can rent a canoe very reasonable spend the day on the river then head to the great beaches of St.Joe'

Autumn Stay " The Proud Mary River House."

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay, although it was too late to enjoy water sport's on the river, we loved watching water fowl, and squirrels. We did get to enjoy the leaves though.

My wife loved the large kitchen, very well equipped, eating in the dinning room was a pleasure.

All views from the house were great, especially sunrise and sunset .It was like you could" get away from it all," here.

Also, convient to anything needed, shopping, resturants, highway.

Neighbor's were wonderful, as well as the landlady.
