This was our third time to stay and look forward to next year. It's a peaceful and serene retreat. Having morning coffee and watching the freighters come down the river, it's a true escape from our day to day responsibilities.

The property was clean and everything was in working order. It was comfortable and very relaxing; views were spectacular. We have always enjoyed our visits to the "soo" and love watching and chasing ships. This was our first time staying at the house and we hope to have the opportunity again! The check in and out process was efficient and friendly. Thank you for a great family weekend. your friends from Green Bay, WI

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing stay and can't wait to return. Loved seeing the freighters up close like that. The house was very comfortable and all the windows allowed us to see the river from different angles.
