We were so pleased with everything about this place! Small, cute, and comfortable. My wife travels for business a lot. She said, and I agreed, this was 100,000 times better than a hotel room. All you bring is clothes and food. A little chilly when we were there, but, still enjoyed the few boats we saw. Even saw a dolphin playing in the ICW one morning. Both Gary and Richard were very nice. The only 2 recommendations I have is that the extra charge for a pet be listed on the website. I understand a charge, and have no problem paying. Just would like to know about it when planning my stay. Second, update the contact phone number. When I called to let them know we were on our way, it wouldn’t go through. We will not hesitate to book this place again in the future for a weekend getaway. Thoroughly enjoyed it!
Weather was rough but our stay was great. Richard was awesome for restaurant suggestions and places to go.
Fishing should be good off the front of condo but was too nasty weather wise for us to fish. Watching the boats go by was also great.
Overall we enjoyed our 4 day experience. The boat was well decorated and equipped with most of the necessary items. It was nice to be able to fish off the porch. The weather was generally nice while we were there.
There was a problem,however,we felt with the cleanliness. The cooking utensils needed cleaning before we used them. One frying had grease and hair in it and the coffee pot had some bugs inside. Since you are required to pay $75 in advance for clean up of the boat, we felt it was not up to our expected standards of cleanliness. Also the refrigerator ice maker did not work and we had to take a cooler to the nearby lodge to get ice as needed. If someone could spend a few hours cleaning, it could be a much better experience, especially at the rental rates charged.
Richard and Gary (at the Core Creek Lodge) went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. They were wonderful hosts and the houseboat is large and comfortable. I would highly recommend it if you are looking for something new and different.
