Overall, this is a lovely cabin. It was very clean and comfortable to stay there. It has all the basic features you expect (dishes, pots & pans, silverware, linens, towels, etc.) plus a lot of little extras that you don't expect (plug-in night lights in the bathroom and by the bed, cleaning supplies, trash bags, indoor/outdoor thermometer, suitcase racks, extra blankets, a welcome binder of information including local restaurants, etc.). I loved being right on the river. The porch was awesome with rocking chairs and tables. With the dock right there, I'd wished I knew how to kayak, so I could have gotten on the water. The boat launch provided an excellent place to wade out into the river. The water was really cold (It's barely spring, so of course it was cold), so I didn't try swimming. The fire pit was a nice perk that I hadn't realized was part of the property. Bonnie provided excellent communication before, during, and after my trip. The only down to the trip was the close proximity of both the interstate (I-40) and the highway behind the house. These are mentioned in the listing and Bonnie mentioned them when I was booking, so there was clear communication there. Some others who have reviewed this property compared it to "white noise" once they got settled and to some degree that is true. However, if you are a light sleeper (like I am), then I would suggest bringing earplugs for sleeping.

This place is wonderful! When you arrive at the cabin have no worries., most everything you may need for your stay. I was so excited to see coffee, since I forgot ours, lol. For boaters there is a ramp very close by. The drive at the cabin is a little tricky with a boat trailer, but doable. Our philosophy is, if you don’t have to contact the owner during your stay, it’s a perfect vacation place. We enjoyed it so much, we plan on going back, if Bonnie will have us. Thanks Bonnie

Billed as a cabin and I guess it is, though cottage might be a better description. If you ever wanted to try life in a tiny home, you won't go wrong here. I'll not going to go into the details of the structure, but it is solid, clean, and fascinating in its own right. The building is clearly a work of love. The great scenery often includes a fly fisher, ospreys, geese, cormorants, ducks and on occasion river otters. Looking down in the water, you are sure to see carp, some of which are giants. Now for the bad news. no internet (though we made hot spots with both Verizon and AT&T) and there is road noise from a nearby bridge. The wife used earplugs at night and I'm blessed with a constant hum from tinnitus so a little background noise lessens the constant aggravation in my ears. Really, with the A/C running inside its no biggie, but it needs to be mentioned. The land itself includes three islands and has a history worthy of a bit of attention. As far as the Hosts go, seriously, you could not expect to meet finer people. If you are looking in the area, don't pass this one up.

If you like to fish for bass of any description, this is the place for you! Loved sitting on the porch and enjoying the morning and being able to walk down to the river for some quality smallmouth bass fishing. Place was clean, comfortable, spacious, and overall awesome! Hosts were lovely, Bill gave us tips on what to catch them on and Bonnie made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. Could not recommend them enough!
