Location was wonderful! Property exactly as described

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at "The River House". Everything was exactly as presented. The property has a great location on the river with beautiful views. The use of the pontoon boat was wonderful! We were able to see the entire river by boat. The kitchen was well stocked. We enjoyed the use of the garage for our bikes, coolers, etc. We had a great time!

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

It was a fabulous time. The house had everything we needed. It was a beautiful setting with the river right there. The boat was a must to have and it ran really good for an older model.We will come again soon! Thank you for your hospitality Andy and sharing this beautiful place.

Fun Times!

  • 5 of 5

Our family rented the house last summer. Two adults and 4 teens. The house is beautiful. We loved the stained glass in the entry way and the kitchen. They supplied everything you could ever need. Plenty of room, great location and fun times. The use of the boat is a must though. To get to the river to swim you need a boat. Be aware, the boat didn't have a ladder so don't get off to swim in deep water. The owner is fantastic, we couldn't have asked for more. We will be back!

What a great vacation at this beautiful home. Grandkids had a blast sliding right from the dock into the river. Great kitchen since 2 of us are chefs and cooked all our meals there. Used the pontoon boat every day and it runs perfect. (who cares about the kind of "worn" look0. Fishing was awesome. we must have caught 100's right from the dock and my son's went with the canoe every morning at daybreak and caught bass. Tubing, swimming, boating, kayaking, canoeing, family pool tournament, We did it all! Very peaceful but located close to everything you would need. Will be back someday. have already sent several friends the info since they saw all our photos. Andy was great to work with and replied promptly when called about what color his canoe was. Didn't want to "borrow" the neighbors by mistake.

Weekend Escape

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I rented this house for a weekend with his sister and 5 of our friends. There was more than enough room for the 8 of us!

The amenities were plentiful, and really had everything we needed there and did not have to worry about running out for a pot or pan, or find a way to improvise (like we are so used to doing while camping).

We did not use the pontoon, although I thought the boat would be in much worse condition considering the boat checklist that the owners provided (it was not in mint condition but looked to be just right for a day on the water).

We tubed on Saturday starting from KP Hole and easily could have tubed directly to the house. Even then, the long ride dumped us out at the exit only a few blocks away!

Capt. Andy emailed/called me very quickly when ever I had a question concerning our impending vacation, and had I needed him throughout the weekend I don't doubt he would have answered immediately! Thanks again for sharing your home with us!

We highly recommend The Rainbow River House :)
