Enjoy a getaway on the peaceful, quiet River House on the Mississippi River. In the mornings the only sounds you might hear are the sounds of the birds on the water. In the wintertime eagles are on the ice in front of the house. In the summer on this part of the river, Pool 13, there are many inlets for boating and kayaking. The area is also known for its fishing tournaments, and there is a public boat launch one mile up the road. The wildlife and spectacular sunsets offer many outstanding photographic opportunities.
