Great cabin. Enjoyed watching the barges going up the river. No complaints but the road is tricky for a motorcycle.

Great to hear from you! Quiet & Relaxing for sure! Yes, we are also motorcycle riders, & gravel can be challenging. We have many riders who return every year, & have no road issues. "Castle Colucci" & "Lodge at Buzzard Roost" are on blacktop, & may be the most comfortable for your ride. We look forward to your return, here on the Rivers edge. Ride safe, Bud & Michelle.

“Fabulous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2012 for a stay in August 2012

The Bonnie Pearl was absolutely fantastic. The wildlife was plentiful and the scenery incredible. Bud was absolutely fantastic. He was very courteous and helpful and just an all around fun guy. He came across as someone who just enjoyed life and what he was doing. If we are ever in the area again we would definetly stay in one of Bud's cabins.

“Nice Setting and Solid Accomodations”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2012 for a stay in May 2012

There is much to like about the Bonnie Pearl. The setting is beautiful and the cabins are very nice. The weakness of the property is in the sleeping accomodations. It's fine for 4 adults and can probably handle several additional kids but I would not recommend it for more than 4 adults. There were 6 of us and the fold-outs couch/beds are not my idea of good sleeping. (I did know the arrangements in advance, so I didn't assign a lower rating, just making note that it will probably be a factor in your overall enjoyment.) To put this in some perspective I would stay at the Bonnie Pearl again, but not with more than 4 of us.

My only other piece of nit-picking would be the need to strip your own beds and put all the towels in a room downstairs. I'm thinking at over $200 a night housekeeping could do a little cleaning up after the guests but like I said I know I'm nit-picking.

Thank You for the feedback. With 7 queen & double beds, & 3 bedrooms, I'm sorry that you chose to sleep on a sleeper sofa. You are correct, we advised you that the sleeper sofas were meant for kids or teenagers, not full grown adults. I hope we can have you visit in the future, to our 'Little Slice of Heaven'. Thanks Sincerely, Bud & Staff.
