Awesome stay

  • 5 of 5

Along with my mother and aunt, we had a wonderful time. The cabin is beautiful, the view is spectacular. There was everything we could ever want and need in the cabin. The three of us had been going to the Barbeau area our whole lives. Staying here brought back so many good memories. The freighters are so close you feel like you could just reach out and touch them. Thank you for the opportunity to cross this off my bucket list and we look forward to staying here again.

Perfect in every way! The place has amazing views and the house works well for the three of us.

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time to stay and look forward to next year. It's a peaceful and serene retreat. Having morning coffee and watching the freighters come down the river, it's a true escape from our day to day responsibilities.
