"This was our 4th stay at the Great Escape, and they just keep getting better. We are a family of 12 ranging in age from 16 months to 65 years from 4 different households. There is more than enough room for all of us and with the pool and the river there is entertainment for all. The kids enjoyed the playhouse and the adults enjoyed the rocked off pool area in the river (worry-free river swimming for the little ones). Phil and Peggy have thought of everything to make the house comfortable and functional. We will be back next year." - Mary Ann & Philip

"I rented the house for a family gathering. The house was clean, well appointed, and comfortable. We loved hanging out on the back patio watching the river. In the evenings you can hear the water rushing with the windows open. Very much as advertised. We used the hot tub and the kids got in the shallow pool! Only cons: No portable cribs, booster seats, or high chairs. Overall though it was a wonderful rental and I'd recommend it to friends." - Sarah S

    "The 8 of us have been friends for 50 plus years and once a year like to get away for a few days. We could not have chosen a more perfect vacation home to spend time with each other. We all enjoyed our stay and the lovely accommodations. Your home was perfect for our stay. We enjoyed the river, walking nearby and just watching the stars at night. Lovely home and had everything we needed. Thank you so much. We will be back." - Susan F

    "The Great Escape was the perfect location for our family to stay for a wedding weekend! We enjoyed the beautiful, relaxing river, watching the sunrise, star gazing, and delightful family time. The house is well appointed with very comfortable beds and lounge areas. There was enough room for the whole family from seven years to seventy years!" - Kim S

    "This property was a perfect choice for our group and event. It provided a retreat setting on a beautiful Texas River in a quiet setting with a variety of activities for a wide range of ages. The accommodations were casual, inviting, and welcoming as well as fully equipped with careful attention to a well appointed and clean facility." - KooKoo
