  • Perfect Little House


    We loved this property. We have stayed in hundreds of vrbos and this is one of our favorites. It is beautiful, comfortable and one of the best well stocked places we have stayed. It is peaceful and quiet yet close to so many things to do. We will definitely come back!

  • Beautiful Cottage in the Woods


    This cottage is spectacular! One of the best stocked places we've ever stayed in. The decor is gorgeous. It even had one of our favorite extras...a blanket for cozy tv watching! The bed is comfortable. The views are peaceful. We will definitely be back again!

    We’ve stayed at a lot of short term rentals but this has to be one of the cutest, well appointed, and best stocked ever. Great house in a great location!!!

  • Cozy, comfortable, amenities galore.


    We stayed for 5 nights while in town for a wedding. The cottage is well appointed. The bed was super comfortable, it was very clean. Lynn was available promptly for any questions we had. There is a lovely sitting area in both the front and back. It was a fabulous experience.

  • Comfort


    The weather during our stay was in the high 80's low 90's and the home had no AC. It would have been fine if a fan had been available. The bed in the only bedroom was very uncomfortable, the bed pillows were very uncomfortable also. Other than these 2 issues the home was very nice.
