4.8 "A bucket list check!"

A bucket list check off fer sure. We loved our stay. We walked down to the river, didn't have chairs but it was OK. Came back up, sat outside,had a few cocktails and went inside to relax. definitely a must stay. Lacey was very helpful with anything we needed and is a great host. We hope to stay in the houseboat next time. Thank you for everything. We will be back. The south is where it's at.

5.0 "Coolest place to stay"

This was the coolest place to stay! Lacey’s directions are very accurate so the bus was very easy to find. It’s in a great location - tucked away from the busy street, but also there’s so much right in the area for anything you may need. It was the perfect spot to settle for a night on my way to Texas!

5.0 " HIGHLY recommended!"

All I have to say is BOOK NOW. Lacey’s spot is everything. Check-in was super easy, and I had an absolutely wonderful stay. I loved everything about it from the decor to the outside area by the river to the bed. Speaking of the bed, I felt like I was sleeping on a delta biscuit!!! Lol. The thing I appreciated most about my stay was that Lacey’s husband drove by while I was sitting outside just to check on me. As a single woman and solo traveler, that meant so much to me. I HIGHLY recommend visiting Brusier, and I will definitely be back.

We loved our stay! It really is just like in the pictures, a bucket list event checked off…staying in a school bus! Love what they have done with cute lights and the way they arranged the inside. Totally comfortable for us, and being on the water was such a bonus! Definitely recommend.

5.0 "A unique getaway"

If your looking for a unique getaway with the feeling of being "off the grid" but still close enough to civilization to get almost anything you need. This is the experience for you! Beautiful scenic views of the river with kayaks and paddle boats included in your package, I give Lacey 5 starts every day!

5.0 "A perfect place to stay!"

What a perfect place to stay! My only complaint is that Louisiana is too far from Ohio or we’d be back sooner. Bruiser is a magical little space perfect for two, maybe three. We had everything available to prepare meals, but the local food is the best part of Louisiana. All the best places are close enough that your food is still warm when you get home. My daughter can’t wait to tell the kids at school she skipped school to sleep in a school bus. Thanks Lacey for all your help and the amazing snacks. We enjoyed everything and cannot wait to return.

5.0 "Fantastic stay!"

We absolutely loved Bruiser! We have stayed at at least a dozen houses during our "bucket list vacation" and this place is our favorite. We had plenty of room and liked laying on the bed and enjoying the view. There is also a gas station/Cafe about a half mile down the road that has delicious home-made meals you can pop right in the toaster oven. We had the jambalaya and it was delicious. This was a fantastic stay!

Great place to stay. Lovely view of the river, comfortable and very well stocked. Only gripe would be the bathroom is small but it is a bus so even that is not bad given the space.

5.0 "Quirky location!"

We loved our one night getaway in BRUISER! We throughly enjoyed paddle boating, fishing, and the water access! Lacey was so kind and friendly and I felt so welcome and trusted at her location! We felt like we were hours away from home and we were only in the next town over! I would certainly recommend this to other couples looking for a small retreat! The quirkiness and character of this location is enough to bring us back again and again! Thank you!

5.0 "Amazing view of the Ouachita river"

"Bruiser" is a converted school bus with an amazing view of the Ouachita river. The lights reflecting off the water at night is very relaxing. If you have always thought about camping or glamping and want a really easy way to get a taste of it while still having all the comforts, this might just be the place for you.

1.0 "Worst experience"

Worst airbnb experience I’ve ever had. It could’ve been a wonderful trip but the lack of insulation in the bus made for a freezing and ultimately unbearable stay. We reached out to Lacey all night with no response. Left and bought a space heater and it still didn’t work. Slept in our car only to return in the morning with no response and no running water. We left immediately. Refund was denied and we have still yet to hear a word of explanation or apology from Lacey. The reviews on what could have been a great stay would suggest that this behavior is how business is usually conducted. I hope things improve. Only extremely disappointed at the dismissal of me, my money, and my safety.

4.6 "Wifi problem"

The bus was an adventure and if the wifi had worked, we would have had the best time. As is, with the wifi down, it was not the best stay (we needed to get work done that required internet). Happy for the hot shower and coffee in the morning!
