The river house was beyond perfect! We stayed for 2 nights and could not have imagined a more relaxing trip. The design and architecture of the house is breathtaking and the pool is gorgeous. Jeff and George are phenomenal hosts and we loved hanging out with Elvis and the poodles. Central to everything but totally secluded. We will definitely be back!

George and Jeff were phenomenal hosts. Our stay was very comfortable. The pool, hot tub and provided breakfast and coffee were especially nice. You certainly get HUGE bang for your buck. The only thing I didn't love was Albus, the big white bird who calls the River House home. He clearly didn't like me either. It wasn't enough for me to complain and certainly wouldn't be enough for me to give any sort of negative review. The dogs are super awesome. We wanted to steal the big poodle. My wife and I will certainly stay here again if/when we return to Tampa.
