Excellent Spot for Outdoor Adventures
Great location for enjoying the outdoors. Norman Rockwell stream for fishing and kayaking. Bonfires and BBQs. Comfy screened in porch to enjoy meals and watch the river. Plus the amenities of the updated cottage. Ideal for families or groups. Will be back.
Everything you could possibly need is there, including kayaks. The house is very clean. The location and view are perfect. We plan to return next year!
Awesome Family Time!
We rented this cabin on the Jackson River for Thanksgiving this year, and we were so pleased with EVERYTHING that this placed offered. We loved the small town feel, the fishing, the coziness of the cabin. The owners are very well attentive and supply the cabin with anything and everything that you could possibly need. The fireplace was the icing on the cake!!! We even caught a few fish and the Teepee added a great touch! Being a black walnut fan, this place had hundreds of them, so we enjoyed cracking and eating them, while sitting by the campfire. The kitchen provided us with everything to prepare and cook our Thanksgiving feast. Thank you again, for sharing your cozy cabin!!!
Adventure at it's Best!
Our 3 families, 10 of us, and our 3 small dogs stayed at "Family Camp" in mid August. We had a great time kayaking 12 miles on the Jackson River, fly fishing, trout fishing, biking down the Scenic Jackson Trail, enjoying the camp fire pit, and preparing and eating way to much food!!! The house was cozy and clean. The location is perfect as it sits right on the river. It made for an easy stop point for our kayak trips...pull them right out of the river onto the bank! The river is gorgeous and clean. Our boys loved swimming in the "swimming holes". We caught rainbow and brown trout. My youngest son loved catching crawdads! The owner, Mike Moldenhauer, was extremely helpful and provided quick responses to our questions. We would definitely love to return for another vacation.
Beautiful property along The Jackson River! They had everything to entertain everyone in our family (ranging in age from 1 to 65). Spent time rafting, kayaking, fishing, sight seeing and relaxing around the camp fire. Mike was pleasant to deal with and gave great advice on things to do in the area. The cottage was very clean and well stocked for our stay. There's a gas station 1 mile away for other needs ice, drinks and etc. No need to bring food and supplies with you, there's a Walmart 20 minutes away.
Great place to stay for an outdoorsy family or someone just looking for a quiet place to relax. I have already recommended it to some of our family & friends for there next vacation.
We will definitely be contacting you again in the future Mike to schedule another family vacation. Next time for a longer stay though, because 5 days wasn't enough!
Perfect property for family gatherings.
We had a wonderful experience at this property.
The cabin is comfortable and well equipped. It is a perfect place for family gatherings and so beautiful by the river. Highly recommended! Robin Erickson
