I live overseas and was visiting home to see my family in FL. I visited Rainbow River with the family as a kid and had many good memories tubing/canoeing/swimming along the river. This time was equally good. Very clear water and for some reason seems clearer than when I last visted 20 years ago!
Our stay at the Heritage Inn was a very comfortable one. The rooms are well equiped - nice tea table by the window overlooking a farm (I stayed in the Thoroughbred Room), small fridge, wi-fi, cable tv, fireplace - and found the bed quite comfortable. We rented three rooms here and so I was able to compare - all were equally nice and roomy. The pictures on the website accurately reflect the good quality and peaceful atmosphere of the place. The bathrooms are especially nice with a large jacuzzi bathtub and seperate shower area.
Our hosts were wonderful and very accomodating. When we wanted to chat about things to do in the area, we could easily find them. When we wanted our privacy, we had it. We ate breakfast in the dining area every morning and enjoyed the variety of food. I had a job interview during my stay and did the interview over skype. Because we had many family members coming in and out of the rooms, I wanted to do it in a place that was more quiet. I was very grateful when Christa & Gerhard suggested I use the dining area for the interview, which also had high speed wi-fi that was strong enough to do the interview over skype without any glitches. Christa offered to pray for a successful interview. I took her up on the offer and wouldn't doubt that it didn't somehow help me to get the job! I am now moving back to the U.S. for that job and will definitely be making more trips to the Heritage Country Inn.
Thank you Christa and Gerhard for making our family reunion at Rainbow River/Dunellon a memorable one! We will be back.
