We were intrigued with staying on the river near the beach as we love the slower, less crowded places but do enjoy going to the beach for the day. We certainly were not disappointed!! This is our new favorite place. There's enough to keep you exploring with the kayaking and if your good with a kayak, can take your fishing poles or use the canoe. We went to seafood market bought our own seafood to cook, ran by local grocery picked up steaks and cooked on the grill a meal that we must pat ourselves on the back for, the best we ate, besides Mrs. Kathryn's breakfast????, while we were there. But for eating out, Nick's was our favorite place and we often like to go to Grayton beach we tried Camp Helen and loved it. You have to hike in a bit to the beach but it's worth the hike. We just loved to sit on our screened in porch and listen to the wildlife and even had a fire in the fire pit and had s'mores. Here you can stay put and be perfectly content or take a quick drive to whatever you find to do. We definitely will be back, very special place (and might I add for you OCD people like me, cleaner than anywhere I've ever stayed????) with the breakfast or without for you non breakfast eating people. Ron and Kathryn genuinely enjoy having and hosting people at their little corner of the river, along with Annie and Gracie, just don't sit in Gracie's spot on the boat???? and they keep the grounds so beautiful there aren't many sticks for Annie to fetch but if you find one, you'll have a new best friend.
Kathryn & Ron are amazing hosts & pulled out all the stops to help make our stay here great! If you want peace & quiet & love nature this is the place to go! Can't wait for our next visit!
I would highly recommend the boathouse for a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere. I was the only adult with 5 kids. We had plenty of room. The owners were great. The breakfast was amazing. My kids loved everything from breakfast, fishing, boat rides and just hanging out. We will be back for sure.
Kathleen and Ron were wonderful the boat house was neat it was very relaxing can't wait to go back
Ron and Kathryn where such amazing host! They where super friendly and very gracious. The food was wonderful each morning and the main home dining area was beautiful. It had an amazing view of the river and the old live oaks. Very peaceful and relaxing. A great place to get away from the hustle and bustle and just relax. The kids loved the boat ride on the river and looking at the wild life. Would highly recommend! -Reamer
Had a great time , everything we wanted to do was close by , 30 minutes to the beaches about the same to great restraunts . Plenty to do within a short distance . And be sure to take advantage of the river . Kayaking was wonderful Ron & Kathryn the owners are truly delightful and made sure our stay with them was one to remember. Ron showed us around the river on his boat and told us a little of the history and even helped us with the kayaks and Kathryn prepares a 5 star breakfast every morning . They are both very enjoyable to talk too and very helpful in planning your time there. Already making plans to bring my family back next year.
If you are looking for a place to relax and nature. This the the place to come to. The owners are very nice and welcome you to their place and best breakfast in the world.
Ron and Kathryn are the best! They are friendly, kind and really made our stay wonderful. The house is beautiful and the grounds and views are just amazing. I loved the lighting under the house and on the trees. The breakfasts Kathryn made us were to notch and we were surprised at everything that was offered. We had fun on the boat with Ron. I loved chatting with them about their experiences. I loved the location because it felt like a real vacation getaway. It was close to Panama Beach and dog races. There are so many things to do within a 30 minute drive away. We had peace and quiet when we needed it and chose when to be surrounded by people and that made it so enjoyable. The house is beautifully decorated, clean and very well maintained. We are definitely looking forward to our return. This is a place we would like to return to for years to come!
