Perfect spot on the River

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a mid summer vacation. It is great place to relax and unwind and the photos do not do it justice. The stretch of the Jackson river the cottage sits on is awesome, clear, cold, and clean with lots of landings to start or end your float from. We spent a lot of time playing in the river floating and tubing. The trout fishing is challenging but good and I enjoyed fishing early mornings and late evenings while the kids were resting. The cottage itself is great, it was clean and comfortable with everything we needed. In addition, the garage had a nice raft, kayaks, and tubes for the use on the river. The raft was a great way to introduce the kids to floating down the river and there were a bunch of life jackets to use as well. We also spent a day at Douthat State Park which is only half an hour away and really is a state treasure.

I would highly reccomend this cottage if you need to get away. A bit of advice I would pass on- the river really is wonderful and great for families to enjoy, but remember you need to respect it, there are currents and riffles so make sure the kids wear a life jacket when tubing or kayaking and pay attention. Also there are some special regulations on the trout fishing but well worth it as there are healthy, strong fish in the water that are a challenge to catch.

Many times when I take a vacation I am ready to head for home by the end it, this was not the case at this cottage, when we had to pack up and leave I felt like we could have stayed on longer.

Amazing! Very well kept... and easy to work with owners!

  • 5 of 5

We reserved this for an extended weekend and found it more than what we could have wanted! We ranged from ages 2 to 68 and all 10 of us easily fit in the house, found lots of activities even for a teen ager :) and had more adventures that could be fulfilled. In fact the whole family agreed to meet here again. I have already referred two other groups to this location!

Beautiful property on the river. House and Property are very well kept, will make you want to stay!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful setting for a family vacation. Lots of activities close by. We really enjoyed the peace and tranquility this place has to offer. We rafted and kayaked the Jackson River a handful of times during our trip. We enjoyed visiting Lake Moomaw and the beach. We made a short trip to Humpback bridge located less that 10 miles away. The house and property are very well kept. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to visiting again in the future.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in early March. We had a great time during our stay. Our host could not have been more helpful. The cottage was perfect and we really appreciated the fishing tips and the use of the raft for our float down the Jackson. The location of the cottage was perfect on the river and close to amenities when needed. We are looking forward to returning later this year.
