We highly recommend it!!!

We had an extended stay on the Rebel's Rest and it was amazing! My husband & I snuggled into the houseboat and loved it!! The owner of the boat is phenomenal in so many ways. My husband wanted to fish and she recommended a local guide who was fun and knew where to catch fish! I love photography and took many fun photos of a variety of boats passing by. I had to learn to take time to wave a
