Wonderful Family Get Away..

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I booked this cabin for his parents and us to have a weekend get away. They are advanced in years and don't really get to go too many places anymore. They totally enjoyed this weekend. In fact they wanted to stay an extra day.... The fellas went to the dock and fished and the woman just really relaxed. We went to Fall Creek Falls and to Rock Island Park. They are not very far away. The cabin is fully stocked with anything we needed. It was a wonderful weekend and we will be booking this cabin again....Thanks for the opportunity to make their weekend special.

The Milam Family.

Quiet place to stay with natural beauty everywhere

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for a wedding and the cabin accommodated our needs very well. We loved the dock on the river and the enormous size of the property provided plenty of privacy. The cabin was spacious and had all the amenities. We had 6 adults and 4 children so we had to get creative with sleeping situations but we made it work. The stairs to the loft made us a bit nervous, especially with kids as there is no outside rail. The master bedroom and bath is beautiful.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Great rental house, very well stocked and good floor plan. Fantastic backyard with direct river access. Nice open floor plan with large tv and good couches. The fire pit looked fun but we didn’t have time to do everything there was so much to do for our 3 day stay. Only one very minor complaint was there was no pot for the coffee machine that we could find.
