Interaction with guests

This is the cabin of my long time friends, The Garlands. I've been living in this area for 10 years. My hospitality hobby is now my profession. I will manage the booking of your stay and insure you have all questions answered and are a satisfied and returning guest! I'm in touch by text, phone and email before during and after your stay. There is a kindly neighbor, Kay, who handles the cleaning and such. She might welcome you with a hug if your paths cross. I can help make intros to local musicians, outdoors folks and artisans if you ask. Most likely you'll never see me.

Other things to note

*you must set your pet guest intentions when requesting to book. there is a $65 fee to bring your dog. We go to great lengths to keep the cabin ready for those not pet friendly.

*cell signals iffy depending on carrier and location at the cabin . Wifi calling and texting now available on newer model smart phones. Needs to be activated in advance. Also plenty of apps on the market that can keep you connected via wifi. There is a landline for local calls.

*there is a short line railroad a couple of hundred yards from the cabin. Its lonesome whistle will indeed blow on occasion. Not usually overnight though.

*steep steps to access the second level.

Nice place, beautiful view of the river. Great location, the whole area is gorgeous! And the directions from our hostesses made it easy to find. I suggest downloading the map & directions they send so you'll still have it when cell signal gets lost. The river is pretty big and a little intimidating but it was probably the easiest float I've ever done! We had a really good time and will be back again for sure!

Highly recommended! The cabin was a perfect fit for our large group and everyone was very comfortable. The location on the river is very peaceful, and we really enjoyed sitting on the porch and deck and visiting.

Wonderful place to stay! My friends and I truly enjoyed every aspect of Cool Water Retreat on the White River. It was in a beautiful location and very quiet. Also not too far from some amazing hiking trails. Hosts were easy to communicate with and extremely friendly. I would highly recommend this place to anyone!
