We had such an amazing time. The house was perfect and the location was so accessible to all the springs we wanted to visit. I HIGHLY recommend this sweet little spot. You will not be disappointed.

Lovely hideaway!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Pam’s riverfront cabin. The cabin was completely stocked...Pam thought of every single detail! There was not a pan or kitchen utensil that wasn’t already there! The bed was very comfortable :-) We loved spending time on the patio soaking in the beautiful river view. We took our boat with us and launched it at the community boat ramp and tied it up to the dock. Everything was so beautiful. Our 3 small dogs also enjoyed running around the fenced yard while we cooked on the gas grill and relaxed around the fire pit. We will definitely be back if Pam will have us!

Upon arrival it was a quaint cute cottage. Upon entering it was clean and well set up.

  • 5 of 5

Inside the place was very clean and well equipped for our stay. Location was beautiful and serene. Saw deer and birds all of our stay. Dock was useful and fun. Firepit and bbq grill was nice and ready to use. Lots of seating for deck, firepit, back patio, and upstairs deck. Comfortable beds and fresh linens were on the beds. Would stay here agaoin.

Great place on the river

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. House offers everything you will need. I would just recommend you bring your own pillow if you have any neck or back issues.

Side note - The boat in the picture does not come with the property (someone asked that question)

Beautiful location in a well loved home

  • 5 of 5

This house on the Santa Fe River had everything we could want in a vacation rental. The owners live up the road, met us at the house for a tour and offered all sorts of help including a shuttle if we wanted to tube down the Santa Fe.

This older house was immaculately kept, the beds comfortable, the kitchen well equipped. The wifi and satellite TV worked great. We just brought food. Everything else we could possibly need was there, including paper products and plenty of towels. Our dog loved the securely fenced yard. Hummingbirds visited the feeder on the big upper porch and deer grazed in the lot next door.

The spring-fed river is great for swimming, there is a very nice floating dock and a lovely swing right down by the river's edge. Many of the most beautiful springs you'll ever see are less than a half hour away.

We rent a lot of homes for vacations, and some of them have been very 'fancy'. But this is the one I want to come back to, again and again.
