Rustic cottage on on Little River, a lovely trout stream that swishes around rocks. Great place for kids to play! Lake across the street. Canoe. Woods all around. Very quiet except for the sound of the river. Nice deck extends almost to the river. Charcoal grill. In all ways cozy and pleasant. Nice for couples, writers, artists, travelers, families, and pets—a place for quiet, peaceful people.

(A note about the lake. There's no beach or anything. Access is just a narrow path down to the water.)

Unavailable: Carbon monoxide alarm

If you are looking for a beautiful place to stay where you can step out the door, sit on the deck and watch the river this is the place for you! The property is absolutely beautiful. We fly fished in the river, hiked along the river banks and got a fresh water massage in the…

Glenn and his wife are super accommodating and friendly. The place itself was very roomy for my family (spouse plus two little kids) and if you're looking for a chill place to stay where you're right in the outdoors, this place is great. Would definitely stay again.

We both work at home, so we are usually on the premises with the rental house is. (Glenn Cheney is a writer. Solange Cheney has an export company.) We are very quiet, and we only want quiet guests. We are very open to people of all nationalities, religions, beliefs, incomes,…
Interaction with guests
We live on the premises, about 200 ft. away, so most of the time someone is around and more than willing to help with whatever. Be advised that guests must be quiet and peaceful. (Kid noise is OK, but no drunken shouting, no loud music, stuff like that.) We'll leave you to…
