Very spacious and comfortable in a beautiful riverside setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a family weekend to celebrate Mother's Day and kayak down the Rainbow River. The game room upstairs was a big hit with the pool table and the air hockey table!! There was plenty of room for all of us to be comfortable. It is conveniently located near several restaurants for the couple of meals we had out but also has a huge kitchen and a lovely large dining table to accommodate several people. House was very clean and grounds well kept. We spent a lot of time on the dock watching the birds!!

Ladies weekend away

  • 5 of 5

Just came back from our wonderful weekend. It was an ideal house for us - and the boat was the icing on the cake. Not too fancy that we were nervous, but gave us a scenic tour up the Blue Run. Could not have asked for anything more. Thank you Andy and family.

P.S. Loved the "House Divided' memorablia upstairs in the game room. Go Noles!!!

Beautiful house!!

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful time! It was by far the best family vacation we've ever had!! The house was amazing, the boat and beautiful water completely made the trip. But even when it rained we enjoyed the game room and board games at the house! The house had everything you could possibly need to feel right at home. We will definitely be back next year!! Thanks so much Andy for sharing your family's home with me and my family 😊

River House

  • 4 of 5

My family and I recently stayed a weekend at Andy's river house. Andy was very helpful with the booking process. The house is absolutely beautiful. I enjoyed reading through the journal of previous people's visit to the river house. Some might loved all the family photos, awards and memorabilia ... they didn't bother me ... but did creep my kids out which was very funny! At first I was taken back by the lack of televisions in the home, but ended up really enjoying renting a family movie to watch on the DVR at night and all the kids pilling up in one space on sofas and making little beds on the floor to watch together...never happens at home since everyone has a TV in their room. The boat looks like it has been through tough times, but was reliable. Some things I was not excited about and actually caused me some stress during this trip was the fact that you are expected to wash the bed linens. I personally feel the cleaning fee should include this. What stressed me out was the fact that you have no idea if the renters before you actually washed their bed linen....the nurse inside me could not let this go knowing some of the contagious skin conditions not to mention skin parasites that could be present. So, I started the trip with several hours of washing bed linens and finished the trip spending several hours washing bed linens. I also feel that there should be a river map in the home so you know where to find the springs.

Even with the stress of the laundry and not knowing where we were going on the boat....we enjoyed ourselves. The home was absolutely beautiful and had everything you need it. More than likely we would stay again, but just plan an extra day for all the laundry.

Very nice house - clean, well stocked with the necessary items for our stay. No complaints.

  • 5 of 5

We had a nice time with our family!! The down side was it rained the whole time, so we didn't get much time on the river, so it was nice that there was a pool table to keep us entertained. The location on the river isn't my preference, but since we were able to use the pontoon boat we were able to see the parts of the river I prefer when it wasn't raining. The owner is amazing to work with! He was quick with responses to any questions we had. Overall - beautiful home & I would stay there again:)
