Amenities & Room:
The rest of the river front is over grown and is inaccessible
A chair in any bedroom would have been nice as well
It was hard getting up the next day to leave
Everything was great televisions could use some updating
The cons to this property was the stairs which are really steep and need heavier blinds in bedrooms and bath
Very clean when we arrived
The house is in great condition as well its very clean and well maintained
and you can actually see the top of the fence post in the picture showing the willow tree at waters edge (neighbor's property)
We stayed here for three nights and four days during a stretch of warm sunny summer weather Four-person family (mom dad boys age 3 and 5) plus grandmother two cousins under 10 and one dog
It truly made our 42nd wedding annversary Just a suggestion the house does need a new coffee maker and more adult size forks very minor
Could have had some more cooking and baking dishes Needs
well We hope to come back soon
(not sure if it's the property owner or not) that the idea of being in a private setting goes away with the activity within the home and the golf course next door
The river access for this cabin is a section about 20 feet wide in the corner of property
but there is a permanent resident located about 30 feet from this cabin which was not show Pictures also show grassy river frontage and open area with lots of river access but those are pictures ...
There is a second cabin located on the property and it is definitely more private
If privacy and proximity to other residents are of no concern for you then this is otherwise a good little cabin
The cabin is a comfortable no-frills type of place Convenient to gas & grocery but on a quiet dirt road

Amenities & Room:
Very comfortable beds and furniture
oh the irony - and the beautiful Christmas tree farms that dot the landscape all around
The only downside to staying there was that the people in the neighboring town home took up a lot of the parking space
The beds are comfortable the bath linens are plush and the kitchen lacks nothing
And the scenery is outstanding
This part I must say is very important to me
The home is very clean
they even blocked our garage drive
We would have loved some additional TV channels so we could have watched more football
well kept sunny inviting and peaceful
so I can't help with dinner recommendations
So anyone staying needs to be mindful of others because we would not have been able to park both cars during this trip
drive away Lots of great restaurants and shops there
There is plenty of site seeing in the area within a short distance
it is a short distance to stores and interesting shops for your needs and pleasure
You are just minutes (<12 minutes) from
it only took me minutes to get to them
