We stayed in cabin 2 for a week there were 4 of us.and I can't say enough great things about this place if you're looking for seclusion.this is the place..very cozy ,,owner is amazingly friendly.has everything you need even coffee..and he came bye every 2 days to check for garbage and towels and ask if there was anything else we needed..the Ohio River in the front and barren Creek in the back..we will be coming back.. nevermind the mess we have been packing up to leave tomorrow 😫😭

This was a place we rented for 10 years. Owners son gave our date away from under us stating people are booking more than a year in advance. We never asked for a thing even though many people would have complained about burned out lights, dirt,outlets that cords fall out of to name a few. Maybe I'm swayed by the bend over but i know we deserved better than we got. I would cut the cards with these people. Good luck.

Very clean. very nice setting and great price with private boat dock. We stayed in the 2 bedroom which is a converted mobile home with wood siding and very nicely remodeled inside. Has a deck and pavilion with a swing grill and fire ring all overlooking barren creek and only about a quarter mile to the Ohio river, you can see both from the Cottage. It was very hot in the 90s during our visit and it has central air but the living room was a bit warmer then the rest of the cottage but still comfy. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend. The host are very nice and helpful.
