Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home. It was the perfect setting for our family vacation. We all enjoyed the cool weather and trees. Our granddaughter said her favorite part was the "water" and Dyna Lou! We will certainly be back.

Cuchara's River House! ...walking distance to the village
average rating of 4.0 based on 7 reviews

Beautiful home - inside & out!!

  • 4 of 5

We rented this property for a family weekend get-away. It was perfect for us. Walking distance from the famous Dog Bar & Grill, mini golf, ice cream, and more! Our family's ages ranged from a 1 year, toddlers, teens, late 30's & 60's. Plenty of newly remodeled space to be together, but not on top of each other. The Cucharas River is steps from the back deck. Truly a relaxing, peaceful & beautiful place! Owner was wonderful to deal with!! Defiantly plan on going back!
