Scott and Linda,

I just wanted to write to you and say what a great place you have in Avery.

It was a very modern, clean and comfortable cabin with satellite TV !!!

We really enjoyed our stay there, and the Humming Birds outside of the kitchen put on a great show every day!

We have stayed up in Avery several times over the years, and this trip was by far the most comfortable.

Thank you for sharing your cabin with us, we hope to be able to stay their again in the future.

P.S. We received the deposit refund today, thank you for the quick release of funds.

Great home!! Beautiful location!!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks for the great place to stay. We have wanted to stay on the St Joe for several years now and we finally did it. Your home was a perfect place to do it. It is located right in the middle of the stretch between St Maries and St Regis. This is some of the most beautiful country we have ever been to. Your home was very inviting and clean. Special touches like iced mugs waiting in the freezer when we arrived were great. I believe your place was the nicest place in Avery. Thanks for making our stay so good!

Family Fishing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Fishing, Hiking, swimming, and fun in the sun! This was the BEST vacation we have had in years, Thank you Scott. The cabin is so beautiful and the St. Joe River is amazing for fishing and exploring. All together there were two kids (7 and 5) four adults and two dogs in this cabin and we all had plenty of room to roam. We also enjoyed the town and its residents, who were all so very nice and helpful. We are looking forward to coming back next year and we are looking into buy some floats and to use on the river. Thanks again for working with us on our short notice booking. 5 stars all the way!!

A welcome surprise.

  • 5 of 5

Just spent 4 days in Avery flyfishing. Endless options along this river to fish. Absolutely beautiful setting. The surprise was this immaculately, well maintained cabin and property. It has every comfort and modern convenience you could want. After fishing from sun up till sun down, it was a very welcome relief to come back here for the night. Location is great and easy to find.
