We had a wonderful weekend at Water's Edge. I had been looking forward to the clear water of the river, but what we got was much more fun. We were able to really play in the water and go tubing. The home was great and the amenities were great. We hated that the end of stairs was flooded, but glad our guys were able to salvage them for you to repair. We also enjoyed the back decking and the fire pit. Overall, we had an excellent time and hope we are able to do it again soon.

No compromises. Big enough for our group, and right on the water. We grilled, hung out on the deck and in the water. Everyone kept telling me what a great job I did finding the place. Highly recommend.

Had an amazing time here with my hubby and our three boys! We all enjoyed swimming in the river and looking at all the fish. It rained every day, but it was still a blast! We went to the bat flight and that was an amazing experience for our family! There's no better therapy from the day-to-day life than the river, campfire, and s'mores at Water's Edge.
