Beautiful View, Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed a week in this beautiful River House when we went to Owensboro for my Niece's wedding. We loved it. It has all the amenities, including a modern kitchen. But what we really enjoyed was that back deck. Coffee in the morning looking around at all that green, the birds, a couple squirrels, and just peacefully watching the river flow by. The revamped "water-front" area is 5 minutes away, where there's lots of great restaurants and shops. I will definitely stay here again on our next visit to Owensboro. Loved this house! Brenda was easy to work with and we got our deposit back right away.

What A View!

  • 5 of 5

First off, the photos shown do not do jutice to the amount space or view this property offers. Very Clean, Comfortable, and Charming. We really enjoyed the wrap around deck that faces the Ohio River-and the ceiling fans on the deck really kept the air flowing which is a plus. Also, the privacy is noce in that from the street, one cannot see around to where we gathered and enjoyed the deck and River view. The close proximity to what Owensboro has done with its downtown could not be better. Obviously, millions have been spent re-vamping this towns river front downtown area; which we enjoyed a great deal especially being so close to this River-House. The owner was very easy to work with, answering my many questions before we arrived and she refunded our deposit promptly-which is always appreciated. Next we are in Owensboro we look forward to booking again .
