Other Things to Note: We are serial rennovators and we are in the process of replacing the back porch so you must exit through the front of the house to get to the back yard. Water straight from the tap is untreated so we recommend drinking bottled water and using the filtered water spigot on the sink for cooking and cleaning fruits/veggies. We provide complimentary beverages for our guests. Also, to help our guest disconnect, there is no WiFi or TV, just the river and plenty of nooks to relax and read a good book while surrounded by nature.
