More than 16 but less than 40 people, depending on count and privacy needs, consider renting both houses. They are within easy walking distance of each other.

This year we've added an outdoor elevator. So if you're concerned about lugging up groceries and suit cases, don't be.

This elevator is also handicap accessible. For the physically challenged, the house does have 2 walk in showers with a less than 6 inch entry ledge at the floo...

My family of four along with three other families spent one week in mid-August at this wonderful river house for a high school reunion and retreat trip. We arrived from across the States, from Houston, Baltimore, Chicago and Jacksonville. As for our family, after driving 7 hours on I-10, the exit to the house led us to a bumpy winding... more

The Great Escape River House is simply amazing. As you walk in you see a bar that is bigger than most restaurants and bars. The second thing that catches your eye is the amount of TVs in the house. I lost count after about 10. There is also a pool table, ping pong table and basketball goal. The hot tub... more

We had a wonderful time at the Great Escape River House. It was everything that the site had promised and MORE! You cannot comprehend the open living space by the pictures on the site. The kitchen and dining area is 1200 sq. feet. with a sit at bar. So much room to gather in during meal preparations - 3 sinks... more

The House advertised here, the Great Escape River House, sleeps up to 27 people. My 2nd Rental, River Lookout (on the same street), sleeps up to 14 people. That's 40 people combined between the 2 houses.

Unfortunately this Rate table doesn't allow as much flexibility as is really needed. For Instance:

While this House, The Great Escape River House, can sleep up to 27 peoplethat size group represents less than 10% of our bookings. So to stay competitive and have the house booked more than it is vacant, its rates are based on smaller size groups and as the group size increases, so does the Per Person Cost. That said, the Per Person cost, actually drops as the people count increases.

* Mid September - Mid May rates are based on one person per Bed (12 Full to King size Beds) - so based on 12 people. There are also 2 convertible sofas & 2 folding beds. This works out perfect for those friends getaways and Golfer Groups. Larger groups...
