What our guests say
We pride ourselves on guests' experience, from start to finish. Below you will find a mixture of reviews pulled from Google, AirBNB, and the guest journal that we include in each cabin.
The following notes are excerpts from guests' reviews written in the notebooks provided in each room.
“We came here for our last family trip before our youngest leaves for college, We had such a great time...Thank you for making this haven of repute for those of us who can’t have a place such as this to go to on a regular basis. A wonderful place to enjoy God’s creation of nature and beauty. Meeting Miranda and seeing your beautiful La Ville Inn and Galley was the highlight of our trip-We will remember your graciousness always and pray for your family. God bless.”
River Bend Lodge Cabin #3 Guests
"Thank you for the beautiful lodgings here! We love the view! It's hard to come back inside with the cool morning breeze ruffling your book pages and all your cares millions of miles away. This was a perfect getaway for our three families to come with our young ones to re-connect. We will be back!"
River Bend Lodge Guests Cabin #2
"We have enjoyed the relaxing time here. I love the huge picture windows! We walked to the river and appreciated the gorgeous trees. Love it -you thought of everything for a perfect getaway-souls love to come again- A very restful setting; Loved the cabin! (Such a treat)! Thank you for having this for us.”
River Bend Lodge cabin #1 Guests, Denton TX
"A place of exquisite beauty, the cabins, the landscape, the nature, someone with taste and passion has created this perfect composition, almost like an art work. The wide open space is unique, rounded up by a beautiful river bend, glowing red in the afternoon sun. I hope this place will stay as it is for a long time - we will come back many times!"

“First may I say that I am a vacation planning guru. I spent over three weeks researching places to stay for a family get together. My brother and his girlfriend flew in for the weekend from Florida and my mother and father in law came in from Western Oklahoma to stay with me, my husband and three kids. There was plenty of room for us all!...There were massive windows throughout the cabin that provided amazing lighting. The kitchen is fully stocked and has every item we needed to include skewers for the s'mores we made in the fire pit out back. There is a huge hot tub that was already hot by the time we got there. It is in a screened in porch that provides the perfect breeze. There is a washer and dryer with soap provided so there were no wet clothes siting around all weekend. We used the propane grill they had every night. We had dinner on the back porch which has a massive dining table with the provided dishwasher and silverware. There was a TV but we didn't even use it due to the amazing views and huge backyard! We were a short walk from the river where we could watch the train go by...
This cabin was a dream and one my family and I plan on making a yearly tradition from now on. If you are wanting a luxurious cabin that feels like home choose this one. This is not a small run down cabin by the river that is overrun with tourists. This is a weekend to recharge and have family around helping cook, taking walks, making s'mores and telling stories around the fire pit and relaxing in the hot tub. We had plans to rent a boat on lake Arbuckle and go on the donkey zip line tour but we didn't want to leave the cabin after getting there. We were lucky to have been able to enjoy Turner Falls this weekend since it was flooded out last weekend but even if we had nothing else to do but stay in the cabin all weekend we would still have stayed!
Overall this lodge is amazing. It is beautiful and well appointed and large enough for multiple couples with kids. It is sad to leave but we will be back again!"

The following reviews are pulled from our AirBNB listings.
We have Tree House, Cabin #2 and a La Ville Inn suite, Contempo, listed on AirBNB, but you get better pricing if you book directly with us (without the service fee from AirBNB).
“As busy, working professionals and parents of three,….. I love to travel to unwind and relax. Whether local or abroad, we are always looking for the next adventure so we travel quite often. This weekend topped our list of absolute best destinations overall!! Talk about peace and romance, your place has it all. Simple elegance with modern touches were the theme throughout the cabin. Every detail has been well thought out from the amazing views from every area in the cabin to whisper quiet cabinets and drawers and slam-proof doors to maintain the peace and quiet of the property. We were able to connect and enjoy just being with each other. Do yourself a favor and take a long soak in the jacuzzi after a long (but, oh so worth it) hike up Turner Falls. Your muscles will thank you later! The treehouse was EVERYTHING I could've hoped for and more! We will definitely be back!”
Ivory - Tree House guests
“This luxury tree house is such a treat. Beautiful views, we loved the house and deck and the location was just minutes from many different activities. Highly recommend.”
Audrey - Tree House guest
“If you’re looking for a place “away from it all” yet minutes away from all of the Davis/Turner Falls activities and attractions, the Tree House is your ideal location. Miranda is an amazing host and it shows with all the personal touches she designed into the property. Be sure to read her amazing bio in the guidebook when you stay at this lovely place...and you will book it and love it.”
Lee - Tree House guest
“Absolutely great place to stay! If we are ever in Davis again, we would stay here! Room and amenities exceeded expectations!”
Pam - La Ville Inn Guest
“This was by far one of the best vacations we have had. I loved the privacy, view, and the tree house cabin was fun to stay in. Such a cute little setup, I didn’t want to come home!”
Jamie - Tree House guest
”This is a beautiful home with a gorgeous view! It is minutes from Turner Falls! Our family of four stayed comfortably (the teens weren't happy at first about the shared space), but it ended up being a great way to communicate and spend time together!!!!!”
Sarah - Tree House guest
“Being a first time guest of this ownership, I can't say enough wonderful things about what a blessing our stay at the La Ville Property or the owner/our hostess Miranda was. The accommodations and the hospitality my family was given was over the top and much more than ever expected. Because of it's uniqueness, this beautiful little place was more like home than a weekend rental. Quiet and serene, comfortable and nurturing to your mind and body, I would recommend this or any of Miranda's properties as the perfect get-away. I look forward to any future opportunities to escape to The La Ville.”
Carrie - La Ville Inn guest
“Outstanding experience! Very peaceful, well decorated, with amazing amenities and personal touches. Located minutes from Turner falls this a great place for vacationing with the family or for a romantic get away. I will definitely be returning.”

“Amazing set up. This cabin was the highlight of my trip here.”
“Stayed in the treehouse and it was awesome. The views, decor, and amenities were all very nice. We will return for sure. Owners are very friendly and helpful. A+ property.”
“This lodge is absolutely amazing! They offer a few cabin choices, but you don't really notice the other cabins when you are there. The cabins are well kept and have a lot more conveniences than I expected….The view from the front porch is magnificent and great to relax to in the evenings. Star-gazing by the camp fire makes a perfect end to the night. Beautiful land - great to walk around and down to the river. Not far from Turner Fall or zip-lines.
If you go here - get the Fried Pies from the nearby gas station - the best I have ever had!!”
“Beautiful accommodations. The views were breathtaking. I can’t wait to return.”
“Great cabins, we come back every year! Property is beautiful.”
“OMG this place is WONDERFUL!… No wifi and little cell service so it's the perfect place to go if you want to unplug”
