River Shanty
The River Shanty was a lovely space.; it is very quiet and peaceful. The house was clean and well stocked. Cortney was helpful and responsive. I would stay here again.

River Shanty
Nature Retreat!
I had a great stay at the Blackwater River Shanty! The river provided a perfect backdrop for relaxation in addition to watching turtles from the dock! Exploring the river on kayaks was a fun adventure and the shanty itself was cozy, well-equipped, ensuring a comfortable stay. The place was really clean & cute and came with everything for a fun adventure with friends and family! I highly recommend this spot to anyone seeking a peaceful retreat surrounded by nature's wonders.
