Wonderful location - lots of space, lots of relaxation!
Our stay was a stellar experience. We had multiple families with multiple kids each, and everyone had plenty of space - both for people to get their quiet time and for groups gathering together .
There are porches galore, a deck by the Toccoa, a professional kitchen (inside) and grill (outside), and a fire pit big enough for a dozen people to roast marshmellows without crowding. The hosts - Neil and Neil Sr - are wonderful. They were more than happy to talk with those of us who wanted to know more about the area (and their horses, goats and chickens) but also gave the group plenty of time and space to just enjoy ourselves.
There are HD LCD's all throughout the bedrooms and common rooms, and a blu-ray/dvd player hooked up to the projector in the theater room. The hot tub is also spacious and enjoyable, located next to the theater room. The parents could relax in the jacuzzi while kids watched movies just inside.
Can't wait for our next visit - a truly wonderful vacation!
How nice to have such wonderful people stay at our home and treat it as if it were their own. We are so glad everyone had a wonderful experience and look forward to having you back soon. You're more than welcome. Hope the log turns out as a nice bowl. Please send photos of it once it's done.
Great time here. House is beautiful. We loved feeding the horses and goats. Had a blast! Thanks so much!
House was awesome. Size fit our families. I felt some updates were needed as far as bedding & towel.
Lovley sitting on the river. Was surprised how unkept the grounds were around the house. After paying $60 for firewood we were only able to use our pit one time because plastic ceiling tiles were being burnt in our pit. A bit upsetting. Wasp seemed to be a problem under the front porch resulting in 2 people being stung.ine if them being our 3 yr old grandson. We did appreciate someone coming quickly to reset our hot water.
Great getaway for a large family!
Neil is very responsive and a delight to work with!
Peaceful river getaway for the whole family
Our whole family enjoyed our stay at Bucks River Lodge. We spent most of our time on the deck at the river. It was PERFECT. Everyone enjoyed fishing, tubing and relaxing all week. The kids also enjoyed feeding the animals, making s'mores, and catching fireflies. We had an amazing time!
Breathtaking house with so much natural light
The property is beautiful, well maintained, and clean. We enjoyed the home very much. Appliances, rooms, beds, and everything is in great condition, and the entire stay was comfortable. Neil is extremely nice and welcoming.
