Guestbook comments from the owner

The family and I really enjoyed staying at your place in Hammond. We found things to be well kept, in good condition, and in proper order. I really enjoyed the location as it is only three miles from Warrenton Marina and very near where we like to fish. Fishing was excellent, again this year. We hope to reserve for a longer stay for next year. Thanks for running a first class operation.

Nice home.

  • 4 of 5

The home was comfortable, well stocked, nicely designed and decorated. My only complaint is that the pictures give the allusion the house and the fire pit area are right on the water when in fact the river is across a small dirt road and a strange chain linked fenced area. Not sure what it is protecting as it is fenced on only 3 sides, but it is unattractive.

Your house is so welcoming, functional and enjoyable! Great location for parks, beaches, restaurants

  • 5 of 5

We were enchanted and entertained with the views from your living room. We had several "cocktail hours" on the porch and by the fire pit. We even got to see a whale and a seal while still watching our Ohio State Buckeyes beat Oklahoma! It was a wonderful stay!
