Great place on the river. The house is immaculate and you will not find a better owner. Mr Roberts even calls you to make sure every thing is good. Also good price.

Owner's reply: Thanks for the great review. It is our desire that our guests are pleased and comfortable in the River Cabin.

AMAZING get away!!! Mr and Mrs Roberts have thought of every detail to make our stay perfect! All the comfort of home on the inside yet all Gods beauty on the outside. Although we are "locals" (we live a short distance from the river cabin) it is completely indescribable the transformation you will have and feel on your first day here!! We have been returning guest for 3 years-we just booked next year WHILE SITTING ON THE DOCK AT THE RIVER CABIN!!!! Words can not describes how wonderful this place and The Roberts are.......you WILL NOT be disappointed!!!! GOD IS GOOD AT ALL TIMES......however He does "show off" at the river!! BEAUTY BY GODS HANDS:-)

Owner's reply: Joe and Adrianne Keefer are return renters. This couple is always welcome. They recently had their Son's wedding on our large docks on the river.They spoke so highly of the Cabin On The River that the son wanted to see for himself. He and his bride spent their first few nights together there in the cabin. We look forward to your next visit to the River Cabin.
