We are so happy to share our home with you. We've been avid airbnb guests and now we're playing host. Growing up isn't so bad. We're recently engaged and after a few quick years in Austin, TX we're happily back in the Gem City. We expanded our family of 4 (2 fur babies) with a little human in February 2016.
We welcome you to the Stillwater River Lodge and we're happy to share our love and knowledge of Dayton with you!
