A very delightful place

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for a month and had a great time. The cottage is nicely decorated. The view over the water whether from inside , the nice patio or from the dock was fantastic We would give it a five star except fo a few drawbacks. There were no instuctions when we got there. The second bedroom has a nice little ensuite but is really too small for two persons. The linens are minimal but there is a nice washer and dryer. There was no gas grille, dvd player, stereo, or wine glasses.The cookware is minimal . If bringing a boat be aware there are underwater obstacles next to the dock, no cleats for tying up, and the boat lift is broken. One key reason for booking this place was the inclusion of a paddle boat. Alas there was no boat and Holly declined to compensate us so that we could rent one locally. Lots of parking though, a boat launch next door and a nice large screen TV.

Peaceful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is perfection! My friend and I decided to have a spur of the moment girls weekend, and this little cottage was the perfect host. The second we walked in the door I felt completely relaxed and at home. The house is newly renovated, and styled to make you feel at ease and relaxed. The back porch was the perfect setting to drink morning coffee and take in all the natural beauty surrounding us. The river is the backyard, and just steps away is a personal dock. Perfect for personal boats, dipping toes in the river, or casting a couple lines out. The kitchen is beautiful and equipped with all the necessities to prepare meals. Both bedrooms were comfy and made us sleep like babies. If you're looking for a relaxing getaway, this is the place to stay!

This cottage was an absolute perfect getaway. Beautifully decorated made for a relaxing stay. Had absolutely everything we needed. It was wonderful to walk out on the dock and watch the beautiful pink sunrise every morning :) Paver patio was perfect to hang out on as we grilled our catch of the day!

Beautifully decorated! Boat dock for cleaning fish and keeping your boat!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful views of the river to wake up to! Home was newly decorated with IKEA furnishings. Easy access to the river for boat fishing with a cleaning station. Had enough room to host a 13 person dinner party. Don't misplace anything, such as a remote control, coffee cup, or hand towel, as you will be charged a high fee for replacement. Home needed a DVD player and grill.
