    Not what we expected

    Reviewed by: Kathy W. on


    Was dark when we arrived and had difficulty finding address and walking to door. Took 88 year old mother with us and did not know only 1 bedroom was at walk-in level (master) and other bedroom was down a flight of stairs. Had to give her the master bedroom while my husband and I had to sleep in twin beds. House was too cluttered. Yard and deck full of leaves that should have been blown off before our arrival. Small roaches in kitchen. Best part was back deck on river. Suggest you make some changes.

    Our Thanksgiving Get Away - feeling at home away from home

    Reviewed by: William M. on


    Waterfront, relaxing home. Loved this property - a welcoming place with plenty of room for our family of 5 (kiddos 20, 17 and 11) to spread out... but with a layout that made it easy to get cozy together too!! Comfortable beds, soft towels, beautiful views, and a kitchen that we could have easily been able to prepare our own Thanksgiving meal in if we had chosen to... but we were on vacation. Enjoyed the outside just as much... fishing off the dock and sitting around the firepit. It was the first trip we had our dog accompany us on and she loved it too!! We couldn't have asked for a better experience. Already starting to plan our return visit!

She was a huge help and very understanding with questions we had during our stay! We will HIGHLY recommend this property. My husband and son are actually trying to arrange a time for them to stay while on a trout fishing trip!

    Great house on the White.

    Reviewed by: Joseph on


    Upon arriving we realized the house was nicer than the pictures from the website. We stayed for 3 nights and loved the place. It had everything we needed. Fishing from the boat house dock was fun and we caught a few rainbows. Had they not been generating the whole time we would have probably caught alot more fish. Great place to stay. Met the owners when they brought us some firewood for the firepit, and they were super nice people. We will stay here again.

    Everything you could want for a few days on the White River....even in the COLD! Really comfortable king bed in the master, everything you need in the kitchen, and nothing beats the deck overlooking the river and the boat dock for you or your guide to have easy access. Multiple room heaters to stave off the chill downstairs for your early morning shower. Great towels too!! Thanks.

    Reviewed by: Terrie on


    Nice place with an excellent location right on the river. Nice deck overlooking the river as well as a nice indoor sitting area overlooking the river. The house was well equipped and well decorated. It was perfect for two people, more would have been crowded. The downstairs would have been good for kids but not another couple. Plus we were unable to heat it. Lights were a little quirky. Would have given it 5 stars except for some maintenance issues. Still a great place to stay.

    Reviewed by: Tony Y on


    The property was exactly as described. The views of the river from the living room were awesome and helped make our stay even better. The house was extremely clean and one of the best stocked vacation homes we have rented. Every pot and pan you could think of was there including a new deep fryer and crick pot. The amount of open space surprised all of us and the children had a great deal of private space separate from the adults. The location was very easy to get to and 10 minutes from Mountain Home for shopping and restaurants.

    I really loved this place. The river was beautiful and the location was perfect. We were able to watch the neighbors take off in their airplanes on the runway. We caught lots of trout and the house is really cozy. Only 2 things I would mention. The master bath tub doesn?t hold water. I had to use a wash rag to cover the drain and underneath the kitchen sink smelled like something died. I had to light a candle in the kitchen to mask the smell. But all in all it was awesome! Will be going back here!

    Breathtaking view right on the white river. We awoke to the sounds of birds chirping, fish jumping and hummingbirds buzzing. You could have coffee on the dock or on one of the two decks. Everything about the house was comfortable. It had a big cozy bed that connected to an enormous bathroom with garden tub. You could also walk out to a screened in porch and slip into the hot tub for a relaxing soak. The downstairs has a wonderful seating area, two twin beds and a bath. It has access to the lower porch overlooking the boat dock and river. There are 4 large flatscreen tvs and a wonderful family room. We did not want to leave. Oh, one morning I got to see a plan taxi by. How cool is that?? I can not say enough about this beautiful home. I am so happy the owners let us borrow it for a little while. Loved our stay!!!

    Property was very clean and well maintained. The owner was quick in responding to all my questions. The fishing was GREAT, caught 44 Rainbow and 2 Brown trout off the dock!!! There is a lot of wildlife around? saw 3 mink, deer across the river, 2 bald eagles in one day, 4 river otters when water was high. One of the pics shows a propane grill, there was only a charcoal grill. Also, the dock is shared with the neighbor. While this was a problem for only one day with me, I think you should be aware since it isn't mentioned in the description of the property.

    The accommodations were great and everything was very clean. The property and layout were perfect for our needs. However, there was some routine maintenance that had been neglected: a step leading to a lower deck needs repair, the solar lights and solar rope lights do not work well or at all and this makes navigating stairway at night difficult, the downstairs bedroom has poor air circulation and was very hot, a seal on downstairs toliet needs replacing, and a panel under dishwasher kept popping off. Nothing on this list could not be fixed in an afternoon. The window in the master bath needs a shade or blinds. We are already planning another trip and hope this property is available.

    The house was wonderful so many rooms with great views of the White river. The house was fully stocked - it was just like being at home. Food was all that was needed. The hot tub was great after a long day of fishing, the boat dock was perfect allowing many people to fish at the same time. We caught our limit each day! The owners were very responsive to questions and I really enjoyed the keyless entry it was nice to go outside and not having to constantly wonder where my keys were! The deck areas are very nice and the weather was perfect. We were there mid May and looking forward to going back again. Also big TVs in all areas so that was very convenient. We highly recommend this place. And it was VERY CLEAN! My wife owns a cleaning service and she was very impressed - ?????????

    The house is very clean and beautifully decorated. The neighborhood is very quiet and very nice people. Two large decks which are shaded most of the time. The dock is large with a roof over part of it which was perfect. The fishing was great we caught a lot of fish there. We got to meet the owner's son Eric, he was super nice and made sure we had everything. The sunroom has large windows so you can watch the river and boaters going by while you eat. There was a lot of steps but the hot tub was nice for any sore muscles. We had a wonderful time and will come back to one of there three properties.

    Fantastic for fishing

    Reviewed by: GNAR on


    Great view and can?t beat the convenience of having access to a dock out your back door for fishing and for your guide to pull up and pick you up! Great deck space overlooking the river, from the deck, the covered porch area and from the living rooms. Bed in master was fabulously comfortable with a huge master bathroom, but a bit weird to have only a handheld shower in the tub. Walk-in shower downstairs though to offset that minor inconvenience. Received quick and comprehensive answers to a couple of questions we had while we were there. Only gripe is a non refundable cleaning fee, which we were informed of at booking time, so although we didn?t like it, and hadn?t experienced same at other VRBOs, for us the choice was obvious given the access and use of a dock. Super well maintained with toasty central heat for those sub freezing mornings. All in all a great place for fisherman and families..

    There are multiple places to sleep. One master King bedroom and two other twin beds in a downstairs common area. There are 3 "sitting rooms" with couches. It would accommodate a family. For several couples, maybe not enough privacy. The views are awesome. Two decks, a great porch area, 4 large flat screens and a good kitchen.
