September 2019

The Boathouse was absolutely beautiful,picturesque outlook and so homely inside we felt (Email hidden by Airbnb) a host Lindy went over and above in every way possible-definitely a place to stay again
September 2019

The Boathouse is lovely inside and out. The area is beautiful, very scenic and relaxing, but only five minutes from Daft Eddys. The walk is very nice and the restaurant has good food. Lindy was very helpful and a pleasure to deal with, we cannot recommend the Boathouse highly enough. We will definitely return.

Lindy's place was much better than expected, it was extremely comfortable and the view is amazing! I would highly recommend to anyone that plans to stay in the area.

Lindy’s Boathouse is in a fantastic location with stunning views. The perfect setting for a peaceful and tranquil stay. Communication was fantastic. Daft Eddy’s a couple of minutes walk & the food was delicious. Will definitely return.
