This is the real deal. It is right on the water with big beautiful huge trees that line the river. We loved the huge yard and porch!

Very nice place. The river is very pretty. We ate in both nights, lasagna one night and burgers the next. We used the grill, but it's not gas, so bring a charcoal. We bought some in Leakley. Very private and nice deck and hammock. Thanks for a lovely weekend.

Very nice and clean place. Nice outdoor patio where we spent most of our time when not in the river. River was low but there were a few spots that were deep. Very relaxing place, great for family trips. Garnder State park is a short drive away for hiking trails and other activit…
