Our family loved this place!

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we walked in the door everyone was saying Wow! Up tight from the long drive to get there, the blessings and sprit of this home had everyone just where they needed to be. It was so beautiful and peaceful. We will be back and for hopefully a longer stay. Karen, thank you for sharing this wonderful "Do-Less" cabin home! P.S... The decks and floating dock are amazing, and it's easy to get the kayaks out on the river :)

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

Our stay could not have been more relaxing and peaceful. The craftsmanship of the woodwork gave the place a rustic appeal. The property is so well maintained and clean! A trip out to the dock at night to gaze at the night sky was a spiritual experience.

My only suggestion would be to replace the mattress in the master bedroom. I woke up sore both days, but it wouldn't deter me from staying again.

Thank you for sharing this little gem with the world!

Do Less Inn

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the the Do Less Cabin on Labor Day weekend and we loved it!! The pictures do not do it justice....beautiful home and has all the ammenities and more! So peaceful and relaxing. We brought our boat and the boat lauch is about a 1 mile away for launching so very easy. The cabin was actually bigger than we thought and had plenty of room. Loved all the decks and the view of the river is spectacular! We definitely want to go back..Thanks so much for sharing your home with us!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the AWESOME review. I have tried all kinds of angles to get good pictures & still can't seem to get the true size of the house inside. So glad you were able to use the convienent boat ramp & you are so right about the beautiful view of the river from the back porch. Anytime you are ready to come back ....The "Do-Less" will be ready & waiting!

Peaceful getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was our third visit here and we love it more each time. My husband has had some serious health issues for three months, and I surprised him with a birthday getaway. It was what we both needed, but was just not long enough! We enjoyed our coffee on the deck, hearing the peaceful sounds of nature, and watching that gorgeous river flow. It flooded while we were there and I loved watching the rain from the porch! We love this place and can't wait to come back. Thank you for sharing your beautiful place!

Wonderful property. Lots of fun for the four boys that were with....

  • 4 of 5

Wifi would have def been an extra plus!! Mayo has limited cell phone service towers, and google is needed for address assist. And the cleanliness a tad better....however it is advertised as a shack, so it was fitting.

Owner's Response: I have been checking into wifi my options are slim but still investigating. On my information sheet I do suggest that you mapquest it out because GPS does seem to get guests lost. I will check on the cleaning. Normally I get the other response on how clean it was so I will definetly correct this. Thank you for your review!

Great river location!

Quaint house/cabin on the river with an amazing floating dock. A huge plus were the kayaks and canoe available to use. Hoping we will visit every year!
