Linda was great and very accomodating. The location was right on the river and near a ton of activities. We had a large group and there was plenty of room to play lawn games and hang out. Several neat areas around the property to spend time with people. All of the rooms were well equipped for all of our needs and everything was very clean and well kept. I can't say enough nice things about the property and our experience. Having animals around for the kids (and adults) to look at was very fun. Overall my group was raving about the location. Also Linda said they are even working on a deck and beach to use the river which would be fantastic! We highly recommend this location!!!
