We will be coming back for sure! Had a great time. The facilities were great! Cabin was clean and completely furnished with all the linens and towels we needed. We ended up doing lots of grilling on the deck in the evenings. Loved it.

We enjoyed our stay at this excellent cabin on the river; The accommodations were superb and the stay was so enjoyable. We especially liked the closeness to nature with the spotted dear, rabbits, squirrels and several dozen bird species.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our family stayed here for a week. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! Ted and his wife were sweet and took time to talk to my zealous boys about their rocks and arrowheads they found. Everything was perfect!
