    Oh my, this is a little piece of paradise that is comfortable, homey, so clean and provides lots of extras and personal touches. The beds and bedding are luxurious and there is an abundance of guest towels for a family of swimmers and water babies ! The variety of songbirds, the aroma of the pines, the hummingbirds flitting about, the smell of the magnolias and the amazing view of the sunsets are sure to lighten your heart. They even provided a fire pit along the riverbank at night, and get this.......a nice breeze and no mosquitos !! Us Ohioans were thrilled ! Then there's all the toys We loved the canoe and paddleboat especially, and did plenty of fishing.. This isn't just a feels as though you are visiting family. We wanted for nothing. If i could, i would give them 10 stars !

    Very peaceful location, beautiful view of the river from the cottage. Spent quite a bit of time reading and just enjoying the view from the rocker in the living room. The bathroom has recently been remodeled, a couple of hooks for hanging towels would be a nice addition. The cottage is very clean, you can tell that the owners take a lot of care. Perfect for our group of 3.

    Though the house is small, it is quite comfortable, especially the beds and spotless clean! The kids had a ball in the paddle boat and kayaks. My daughter and her husband enjoyed the canoe. The extra life vests and lawn furniture was a nice feature. Trudy was so friendly and helpful, offering tips on places to eat and brought over an inflatable twin bed for my 6 year old grandson. We saw deer and even had a raccoon come for dinner under the bird feeder. It was a very relaxing 3 days....wish we could have stayed longer!

    My family and I very much enjoyed this beautiful site. Not fancy, but clean, comfortable, and picturesque (photos of property are very accurate). Lots of options for enjoying the river--2 kayaks, a 3-seat canoe, and paddleboat. Had some fun fishing as well...3 novice fishermen caught lots of fish! Washer and dryer added to convenience. Owner was very accommodating with a special request based on a family member's health issues.

    Awesome little river getaway! Kids had a blast too!

    My husband and I were just looking for a quiet weekend alone and this home did not disappoint! The view alone is gorgeous and it was nice sitting outside in the morning watching the squirrel play as the birds enjoyed their feeders. My husband was able to catch quite a few catfish from the pier. The home has everything you need! The grill out front was nice as well. The owner met us with the key and you couldn't ask for a sweeter person. We felt welcome the moment we arrived. We are already trying to schedule our next getaway here! Highly recommended!

    We were a party of 5 on a fishing/relaxing vacation. The cabin has a rustic feel with all the knotty pine walls & ceiling with wonderful large windows to take in the views. The bedrooms while small, have very comfortable beds. The large kitchen livingroom diningroom combo provide great views in all directions. Many squirrel, chipmunk & birds play in the yard all day. The level lot down to the water/boat dock is a definite plus & makes it a breeze to go boating. The owners met us at the house & were delightful & helpful with info on the area. We would definitely stay again. If you are looking for a quiet peaceful place to unwind I definitely recommend this cabin. Will, Hunter, Brent,Carolyn & Angie

    Me and two of my good friends stayed here recently for a 4 day fishing weekend. The place was perfect for what we were looking for. The bedrooms were nice and clean and the main living area was a good place to rest and watch TV. There is a nice gas grill off the front porch which we used each night to grill out after a long day of fishing. The house is located on a great lot with a ton of waterfront and is located in a private/peaceful part of the Elk River. There is a nice boat dock on the property which we used to tie up our bass boat to each night. The owners were very kind and met us out there to provide us with the key and to show us around the property and answer any questions. They were very responsive to all of my phone calls. I would definitely stay here again. Kris
