We have stayed at River Cove Cabins many times. Gary and Wanda are wonderful people who work hard to keep everything very clean and welcoming. We do not feel like our year is complete without at least 3 or 4 visits to these little cabins. When we drive into the lane leading to the cabins, we always have an "arriving...

I travel a lot for business and this has been the best business trip by far. It is so much better than staying in some cookie cutter hotel. When you pull onto the property you are greeted kindly by the owners Gary and Wanda and if you're lucky their dog Dixie. I was in town for three weeks for business...

My husband and I arrived with our small children for a nice family get-away. We were met by Wanda and Gary, who were the two most friendly, sweet people we've ever met! Right away, we were whisked away to a cozy country cabin overlooking the river. I must admit, I was nervous about how the kids would do in the...

I will admit the value is good, grounds are OK, stream is not moving too much, quiet. Kitchenette was way too small to prepare/cook a meal, strong mildew odor in bath. Owner has nice dog that visits. No wi-fi, and is a 'dead zone' for ATT cell phone. Best thing was enormous water pressure in shower!

Stayed five nights in a one bedroom cabin. Wanda and Garry were friendly and helpful owners. The rooms were very clean and simple. The grounds were well maintained, quiet, tucked away from everything. So nice to stay in a "Mom and Pop" kinda place and get away from the commercialized hotel scene. The room had a small kitchenette to use...
