    Additional Location Information
    Located on a century old family farm, the Farmhouse faces a gorgeous pool on the Middle Prong of the Little Pigeon River. The house is so close to the River it feels as if you could cast your fishing rod from a second floor window. The grassy bank along the River is sloped-not steep, but not flat. It has both sun and shade. The water depth in the middle averages 6ft and the size is comparable to 2 olympic sized swimming pools. However, there are many places shallow enough for young and old to dip their toes in without going for a swim. Above and below the large pool in front of the Farmhouse, the river has shoals/mild rapids (Class I, maybe Class II, in whitewater terms) and it is easily floated by canoe, kayak, tube or other inflatable.
    The house has plenty of yard space and is surrounded by towering Pecan, Chestnut, and Maple trees. On one side is a small creek and fenced pasture. On the other side is a large grassy field that is kept mowed and ready for recreation. Behind...

Just returned from a wonderful stay at the Spence Cover River Farmhouse. We had two young kids and it was perfect for them. It has such a beautiful setting right on the river with a wrap around porch complete with swing. So relaxing! The owner has so many extras in the house that you don't see in other rentals and...
