All of the beds had clumps of dirt, sand, and what looked like dog hair in the sheets. The dishes were filthy and thrown in the cabinet. The trash cans had garbage in them. We ran out of dish soap. There were no extra trash bags in the premises. Directions to the property could have been more clear. For the price we paid for two nights and the condition of the home when we arrived, we were very disappointed.

The location was great! A beautiful view of the river and the sun set over the river. Nice to watch off of the deck. It was located a little off the beaten path but that is just what we wanted. The kitchen is not well equipped. It has only 2 scratched up teflon pans and few other utensils but it did have an insta-pot and a nice grill. No ice trays in freezer! There were lots of lights over the kitchen counter but none of them worked. No nightlights either. There were some dirty utensils in the silverware drawer so we washed everything before using. The towels were badly stained but I read that in another review so brought my own just in case. Beds were comfy and shower/bathroom was good. There is a 17-step walkup (pictured in listing) and the parking/yard is very steep so if someone is walking/stair-climbing challenged, I would not recommend it. I would definitely stay here again knowing that it truly is a "river cabin" and not a luxury get-away. Just know what you are getting before you go. The location makes it all worthwhile.

We liked staying here, though for the same price in the same area with similar views, there are other, better options. The big plus is the view and access to the Current River, which can be seen from the deck. Otherwise, the place is above a garage, meaning you need to lug everything up those steps. The rooms were clean, but the oven had some sort of residue in it that made it smoke the place up, even after we tried to clean it. There were also no sponges, scrub brushes, etc. to wash dishes with.

Overall we were pleased with the property. The walk to the gravel bar was not very nice. You walk through a swampy marsh on wood plank boards that needs work (boards loose/broken) and the grass was really high walking through the boarded path. Once you got the gravel bar it was nice. Outside around the house needs some work to look more pleasing (old hood laying in the driveway/bit of trash laying around). There is no area for a fire at night so I would suggest the owner build a small burn pit. The master bedroom door does not shut all the way, The second bedroom has no door for privacy. The bathroom needs a curtain because the people on the deck can see right in. The deck is nice outside the loft we spent a lot of time on there in the evening. The loft was very clean inside and cute, They had everything we needed for our stay. Overall, we were happy with our stay and as I said the loft was really cute inside. Property owner should take some time to make things a bit cleaner outside and possible build an area for fires at night. The owner was also very responsive to my questions prior to our stay. The internet and cell phone service at the property is really good.

The loft was clean, the owners were easy to communicate with, and answered questions promptly. However, we felt as though the pictures and description of the property were extremely misleading. While the deck was probably our favorite part of the place, the river is barely even visible though the trees. The river access/gravel bar is NOT at the bottom of the hill as you would expect from the photos shown. We had to travel down the hill, turn on a sand road that looked like it was meant for an ATV for .3 of a mile to get to the access. If you have children and/or a cooler, you should probably drive. But unless you have 4-wheel or AWD, I wouldn’t risk it. Also, please note that you will be traveling down gravel roads for nearly 5 miles to get to the property which we found to be rather inconvenient. However, we wouldn’t have been as bothered by it if we had felt as though we were actually on the river.

Our family of four used the loft as base camp for a couple days of exploring rivers and springs... and it didn't disappoint! The directions to the property and for check-in were spot on. We were excited to be able to pick the property out from the river during our float and spent some time on the gravel bar in the evening. Beds and furniture were all comfortable and suited our needs perfectly. My only suggestion would be to have the AC unit turned on on the day guests are expected. We arrived late in the evening of a 95* day... and it was a hot first night while the window units tried to catch up from the day.

Wonderful stay
This location is amazing, the house and its river front access was perfect for us to stay at. We had a few minor issues ( Master bedroom door was somewhat broken, sheets had stains, and pots/pans were dirty when we first arrived). But despite this, I would plan a return visit in a heartbeat! Also the Cabin sighs are behind some overgrown grass, so make sure to pay attention to the directions very carefully.

Close to the river
This was the first time we stayed here. It has a path down to the river which we loved. We not only got to lounge in the river upon arrival and got to stop and refill during our float. there are about 4 miles of gravel roads to get to this rental including some steep inclines/declines. I suggest you have a 4 wheel drive vehicle. I have a Ford Fusion and ended up getting a rock stuck in my brake assembly causing a grinding noise when I got home. The house is exactly what you see in the photos with just about everything you need. Unless you're making spaghetti. No strainer or spaghetti fork/spoon thingy. This is a good rental for the price and if you have a 4 wheel drive vehicle I do recommend it. The fact that it is located on the river is a huge plus.

Our stay
Overall the house was cute, clean and served it’s purpose for our family. The window unit air conditioner made it hard to close doors and it was still warm in the bedrooms with doors open. The roads to the house were pretty rough and we had a 4 wheel drive. We looked forward to the water access but felt like we were intruding on someone’s property and it wasn’t swim friendly like we wished. Small thing: need ice trays. Thanks for opening your home and being open to suggestions! There were a lot of small necessities there which was a nice surprise.
