Ideal escape from the noisy city

  • 5 of 5

A Shore Thing is a recently renovated property that is kept in immaculate condition. It had the warmth of a home with the amenities and cleanliness of a luxury hotel room. We found the covered dock on the river idyllic for sharing meals, drinks and books during the day, and the drive to town for dinner close and convenient. This was the perfect rental to readjust before heading back to a busy urban life. Highly recommended.

Wonderful in every way!

Everything we needed (and more!) was provided. Beautiful house, all the amenities you could ask for. Great covered dock with plenty of fish to catch. Our gracious host greeted us and gave us lots of information about the house and area. Thanks David and Amy!!
