My family enjoyed kayaking on the creek and the common beach area on the river side. Terry was very helpful and welcoming.

What a wonderful spot right on the water. Peaceful, with a dock, firepit, grill and nice lawns. Comfortable inside and out, everything we needed, and plenty of space for a large family! Had a great sunset walk down the road, and seemed like a great little community of neighbors. Will be coming here again!

I stayed here with 9 other people and we couldn't have been more comfortable. We drank by the fire, grilled every single day and ate until we couldn't move. We walked to the shore on the other side on the street (1 min walk) and played volleyball in the water. The neighbors were amazing and even came over to say hi and share a hand with anything we needed. Terry gave us access to all her floats and kayaks which we took full advantage of. After she greeted us and showed us everything we needed she left us on our own for the whole weekend but was only a text message away. My friends are will DEFINITELY be back next year.

I love adventures but also the tranquility of a quaint getaway that restores the soul. Adventures are filled with helicopter piloting, hiking, camping, traveling, and exploring new cultures. But my favorite retreat is the "rivah", and I love sharing it with family and friends.
