    This is a nice waterfront rental that our family really enjoyed, for the 2nd time. Mark is a great host, very friendly and accomodating and he ensured we had everything we needed after we got there. The cabin was clean and had everything we needed and a great deck to view the river from and a waterfront dock to launch the kayaks from or fish. I highly recommend this cabin or his other cabin next door if you want a peaceful getaway. Do be advised that the internet service is very limited due to not anything else available in that rural area, not an issue for us though it was great to unplug for a while. We did have enough cell service to make calls and use our data as needed. Again, highly recommend! We will definitely stay in one of Marks cabins again!

    Fantastic cabin and owners

    We had a great stay here! The water was low, which Mark informed us about before our stay, but we were able to fish and kayak anyway. This is a very comfortable house and Mark went the extra mile to be sure we were able to enjoy it!

    Perfect Weekend Getaway!

    This was the perfect place for a quick weekend getaway. The owner was amazing and made sure we had everything we needed! The weather wasn’t great, but our kids still had a blast. The tornado sirens went off and the owner called to let us know where the tornado was relative to us. That’s great service for people not familiar with the area. We will be back!

    We all loved it!! We all dream to have a place like this of our own someday!!

    The home was really nice. Modern with upstairs and downstairs bedrooms. 2-complete bathrooms. Really nice screened in porch. Very quiet and relaxing. Very large dock to hang out on and sun bath, fish off of or read a book. I would highly recommend this home. Mark is a great host.

    Beautiful Setting and well maintained.

    This property is sitting right on the river with two decks. Enjoyed drinking my coffee and watching the wildlife and the birds. We also sat on the dock in the afternoons. The cabin is well appointed and had everything we needed. Comfortable beds, which is always a plus. Mark came by to check on us and made us feel so welcome. We hope to go back again some day. Loved every minute.

    Nice quiet house on the river for a great price

    This house was better than expected. The price was great and the location was even better. The river side of the house was fully in the shade by 4 in the afternoon which makes for some very cool afternoons. Dock was recently redone and a great place to hang out. River was deep enough around the dock to jump in and float around which we did often. Best part of the house was the screened in porch, which we used every morning and afternoon. Mark was a great host. He was very responsive to all our needs. He even took us up river and dropped us off so we could kayak back down to the house! I wish we could have stayed longer than we did and would recommend this house to anybody looking for a getaway on the water.

    Great Waterfront Getaway

    Our family of 6 stayed for 3 nights in Mark’s great cabin on the Elk River. The house was well equipped and had plenty of room for all 6 us. Our oldest son with his fiancée visited for the day as well. We all loved the dock to fish and swim from and we especially enjoyed the use of the kayaks, none of us wanted to leave. It was nice having a gas grill there as well. Mark was very prompt and informative when communicating with us and he made our stay easy and relaxing. We highly recommend this waterfront rental and we will be recommending it to our family and friends and will be staying here again in the future, hopefully for much longer next time!

    I spend a wonderful time, but way too short, with my four sisters at Mark’s place. We had a great time and our favorite place to chat was on the back porch over looking the water. First thing in the morning and last place at night was that beautiful view, especially with the moon reflecting in the water. I really hope to go back again. Thank you Mark. You are a wonderful host. We were so pleased to meet you. Your history lessons were great! Thanks again.
