Excellent rental property. Very spacious and breathtaking views.

  • 5 of 5

This was an excellent rental property for what we were looking for. The house was very spacious and accommodated all of us comfortably. The views at this time of the year were breathtaking. We highly recommend this property and have already talked about coming up again to take our kids skiing at Schuss Mountain this winter.

Plenty of space. Beautiful location.

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our group of families. There were beds for everyone, and the river and lower deck were great.

Nice for a large family!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for our annual family vacation. There were 4 couples and 6 children (14 people). The master suite on the main floor was large and offered plenty of room for the mother/father in-law. The 3rd bedroom on the 2nd floor has a pass-through I guess it would be considered 2 bedrooms in 1. This area was perfect for the children (2 double beds in the main area and 1 twin, 2 doubles in the bunk house). We were surprised that 2 of the main bedrooms were in the finished basement, which was fine during the summer season. Overall, there was plenty of room and everyone enjoyed there stay :)

Nice place on idyllic river outside Bellaire

  • 5 of 5

Had a very nice stay here. Favorite part was the very nice, large lower deck down on the river.

House was very large, with 4 private bedrooms and an additional "barracks"-type room with 5 more beds.
