This is our story 



Hurricane Ian has done considerable damage



Our animals were saved

The storm surge sent 15 feet of water destroyed everything but the outer shell of our buildings.  Our dream  was crushed but not our spirit. Above all else the goats were saved. They are alive and well and just need lots of love. The goats have now been brought back home and although the property is destroyed, our goats are the bright spot while we dig through the rubble.

Marc and Meagan were fantastic hosts! This property is a gem and we enjoyed our stay tremendously. The cabin was super clean and cozy. We brought our kayaks but there were several available for guests. Both paddle trips were great (and lazy) with lots of wildlife to be seen. We also hung out by the water just relaxing. Our daughter had a great time petting the goats (and wanted to bring one home). We had a wonderul, relaxing and lazy weekend and totally recommend staying here.

What a gem!! I cannot express how much I just fell in love with this stay! Marc and Meagan are excellent hosts, and the property is a fisherman’s paradise! The cottage was so cozy, clean, well stocked and right on the water! Close to plenty of shopping and dining but, also very secluded and quiet. Kayaks, a really nice boat ramp, fire ring, bbq grill, and all the fish you want to catch right off the bank or floating dock! Just a very short boat ride down the creek and you are on the beautiful Peace river! Fossil hunting, kayaking, fishing, or just relaxing I highly recommend this stay!
