Great quiet weekend

  • 4 of 5

This house is at the end of a gravel road making it feel very secluded but also safe as it is in a gated community. Great for kids because they have a neighborhood pool. My son tried fishing in the river but had no success.. Still enjoyed himself. The owner is very accommodating too!

amazing getaway!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I took a long weekend to relax and spend sometime together and this cabin was perfect! Cabin was very nice and roomy for my family and the setting was great. The river sets the tone and the rustic feel to the cabin was great. My girls (age 5 and 9) didn't want too leave. The indoor heated pool was a hit with the kids. We are already wanting to book another trip in this cabin soon. And thanks Doug for sharing this treasure with my family, we made some great memories!!

Beautiful stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved our quick stay at this beautiful cabin. The view of the river is great and the interior is gorgeous. The only semi-complaint we had is that the hot tub was pretty cool - not sure it ever got to the 104, and was too cool to stay outside for long. Otherwise, perfect stay.

Owner's Response: This was a one night stay, which I usually don't do and it was last minute. The tub was drained and cleaned a few hours before their arrival so naturally, it had not come up to temp yet. I did have maintenance check and there is no problem with the tub coming up to full temp. Doug

Girl Trip Paradise

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to have a peaceful, tranquil, relaxing, refreshing girl trip. Five of us travelling buddies stayed in this very nice cabin on a beautilful river and made this our home base. Nights by the cozy fire and making samores at night or sitting in the hot tub was a fine way to end a great day. Very comfortable and secluded. The coloful leaves were at their best for us and the cool mornings were quite a treat. The Serenity Mountain Spa was also a great way to spend an afternoon. One of the best trips ever! We would recommend !

my dream vacation

  • 5 of 5

Just wanted to tell Doug, you have a beautiful cabin, everything was just as said. the pictures do not give this place justice. i could not believe how relaxing and fun this trip was, to be able to get on tubes right outside the cabin and float down to Fife bridge on a 3 hour trip. It was so much fun for my grandchildren, and myself. to be able to sit on the porch and watch tubers and kyakers come by each day made it so relaxing. the cabin was so clean, and well kept, loved grilling out on the porch and getting into the hot tub each day. counted 58 deer in one day, but saw them everyday, which my whole family loved. I took my wife, daughter 3 grandchildren and got to take my mother also. everyone said they had a ball, I do not see going to Hot Florida again in the summer, the weather was perfect. Again Doug, thank you for providing such a wonderful place for our vacation.
