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.

My husband I stayed in June 2014 what an awesome relaxing time. Quiet, peaceful, secluded and just what we needed. The owners are such sweet people and made sure we had everything we needed. Very Clean!!!!!

We had the opportunity to stay in 2 different cabins due to our late reservation which worked out perfectly. The Rustic cottage is superb and is located where no one else is so if you're looking for complete seclusion then it is it. The 2 bedroom has plenty of bass to catch off the dock which is down only a few steps from the cabin so it is awesome as well. They have everything you will ever need including bug sprays, dish soap, and many other items most cabins don't carry so don't do like I did and pack everything except the kitchen sink. The owners are wonderful people and they clean better than any hotel I've ever stayed at from the windows to the stair steps. If you're looking for peacefulness this is the place. Don't be fooled by the wonderful value price either because that is what makes this place even that much better. We will definitely be returning.
