About Rudy Coffin

when I retired I added the mastered suite/bathroom. Remodeled the house my sister and I grew up in. the family uses the river house often. by being on VRBO and renting out the property we can help off-set the remodeling cost, taxes and insurance premiums. Not trying to make a profit...just help to cover expenses.

Rudy Coffin purchased this house in 1965

Absolutely Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

What a great place. The home was wonderful and the décor exceptional. The view of river was breathtaking. The local was just minutes from everything the area has to offer. We rented a pontoon boat and parked on the river adjacent to the back yard dock, how convenient! The home offers all the conveniences of home and it is very well maintained. I will also add that when we arrived, the home was absolutely spotless, better than most high end hotels where we have stayed. The home owner is a pleasure to work with and his integrity is beyond reproach. We would highly recommend this home as a wonderful vacation stay or a great getaway. You will not find a more accommodating home or owner at such reasonable rates. We will definitely stay there again!

Exactly what we needed. Plenty of room to spread out with my children and their spouse's. We spent a lot of time on the porch with out feet up enjoying the views. The owner is absolutely awesome to work with. Very close to Rainbow river for canoeing, hiking and swimming.

  • 5 of 5

This peaceful riverfront home was the perfect spot for our family getaway. The shady yard and patio were fine for relaxing with kids and friends, cooking out, and late night chats around the firepit. The fishing was fantastic, kayaking great fun on the beautiful river. The house was very comfortable, clean and provided beautiful views of the waterfront scenery. Super nice kitchen and soaking tub were a highlight! The property owner was very helpful and easy to work with. We had a great time and hope to go back again every year for a family week of fun and unforgetable memories!
