This was a great place to stay. My spouse and I were looking for a seclude getaway and we found it. The river provides a nice place to explore and the peaceful sounds of the rippling water over the rocks. The cottages are clean, well appointed and wifi is available in each cottage. The wifi was very important to me...

This place is amazing! Pictures can not describe the detail Frank has put into carving the most unique paradise out of a river valley. If you want 24 hour maid at your beckon call you'll be very disappointed. Are you looking for a night life with loud music blasting? You won't find it here but the jungle sounds at night...
