My family has been going here for over 40yrs. We knew the original owners and now their daughter who runs the place. Between all of us we usually rented five to seven cabins for a week one or two times a year. It was a family tradition so we pretty much overlooked the condition of the cabins. My wife would spend a whole day cleaning and covering the couches and beds with our linens and such. On our last visit the owner accused two of my sister in laws of writing a bad review about a cabin they rented four years earlier. THE CABIN WAS UNINHABITABLE TOTALY COVERED IN ROACHES!!!!!!!!! I don't mean a few, a few thousand! they were everywhere. They kindly refunded their money and we moved them in with us, no problem. Cindy (owner) told us we were not welcome anymore so there you go, a 40 yr tradition down the drain. The cabins are distugsting, the pool is GREEN, but the price is not too bad and we loved the river.
Just so there is no confusion this time my name is RON TOOKER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We had insects in our bed, layers of dust, cobwebs, types of food we did not bring on the floor(Cherios), dirty dishes when we arrived, dusty-dirty couch, an allergy nightmare! We were there for three days and had to spend one day cleaning ans shopping for basic living supplies.
Doors falling off because they were not hung with proper hinges. Toliet was not attached to the floor and the wax ring for the toliet was black. A toliet wax ring collects feces and prevents it from going out the side of the toliet, so there was basically exposed feces....to cover the stink, they provided air freshners. We had a toddler and the bathroom door did not shut to prevent him from touching it!! The bathroom flooring was also coming up and mold was visible.
Bring your own, sheets, blankets, towels (dish, bath, & river), hand soap, dish soap, garbage bags, toliet paper, paper towels, etc. Our BBQ grill was rusted and the stove/oven did not work...it took an hour to slow cook scrambled eggs on high. The fridge was tiny and outdated with a sign that said to keep items in a cooler if it didn't keep cold enough. Both beds were leaning to one side and I almost pushed my husband out each night due to sliding toward him.
The owners were very rude, they insulted us within ear shot to our friends...they claimed we were trying to get a free vacation because we did not know to bring cash and they were never in the office when my husband went three times trying to pay. They even lied saying my husband yelled at her and threw things at her. I was standing right there and she was the one kicking attitude, not my husband.
Until recently, I was raised in the country and I understand outdated and rustic, but this place was filthy and unmaintained!!!
However, the river was beautiful!!! We did not let this ruin our time, but there are better places to stay with the same beautiful river, so I rated the overall experience based on the ""resort"" itself and not the location.
