As if we don't have enough to do, we decided to open a cabin for people to come in and enjoy our county! :) We are on the river every chance we get and love love love the beautiful scenery here and would love to show people how nature can really relax a person! We have three children that love to be on the river or in the woods climbing on rock bluffs. Just makes for great family time! We would love for you to come and stay with us for your family time!

We had a wonderful time at the cottage and we are seasoned travelers to several hotels and cabins on VRBO. Your place was a constant reminder of why owners as yourself need to be commended on such wonderful details and making the place so inviting and wonderful to stay!!!
Finally, this is kind of funny story and it has to do with I believe your husband who checked us in. So he seemed laid back, pretty straight forward, nice guy. He told us about a 'pool' when he showed us the map. He explained it was within walking distance and it was okay to use it. Well we didn’t think we would but about a few hours into our stay we thought we would check it out for a bit and come back. We almost walked but decided to drive. We drove up about a mile when thought 'there is no pool'.. Then we asked someone and they kind of laughed and said as they pointed to river 'There is your pool!' --- So we took it as a joke... the pool never existed in terms of an actual pool... but the fact we drove up and down for a bit looking for a chlorine filled pool was kind of humorous!
We loved the area. Actually the kids and us did jump in river right off pontoon - the kids loved it! Overall, awesome and again... you were so understanding with all the back and forth decisions and I truly appreciate your graciousness.

Absolutely all positive comments. No gripesabout anything. We WILL be back
We spent the weekend away from home on a family retreat. Apprehensive at first that this would be the getaway that we were hoping to accomplish. My fears were relieved the moment we walked through the doors. The owner was super helpful and flexible with our schedule and departure. She was also quick to answer questions. The home is beautiful and decorated so nice. It felt very warm and cozy. The views of the river were spot on. We loved that we could hang out for a while outside and come in and relax when we got too cold. Everything was well stocked and we found the property very hospitable. Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to stay here!
I stayed for a weekend at this beautiful home with a few friends and had a wonderful time. I definitely would like to go back in the summer time to enjoy the outside more. The cottage is equipped with everything you need, so if you forget something no worries you will find it there. I would highly recommend this cottage for anyone who is looking for a nice view and cozy up-to-date house. If I could ask for anything to be added it would be wi-fi, even though it was nice not to have it for a few days. :)
We spent the weekend in the cottage, and could not have been more pleased. It is clean, in wonderful shape, the beds are extremely comfortable, and is furnished with every imaginable amenity... from satellite TV to games and cards, to frosted mugs in the refrigerator! It was rather cold this weekend so we couldn't spend time on the large patio overlooking the river below, or the deck above, but we look forward to coming back next year in warmer weather. Thanks Michelle!
The cottage was wonderful. We loved sitting on the porch and looking at the river in the morning and also in the evening at sunset. The accomodations were VERY CLEAN. Michelle was a very helpful owner. We would love to return and spend more time. We did not visit any restaurants in the area so on our return trip this will be a priority.
