    The smell of the many trees surrounding the property was invigorating. While there are neighboring properties within eyesight, and the owners live on site, our experience was very peaceful. From what the owner told me upon our arrival Spring might be the best time to visit when everything is blooming. The grounds had a Wintertime dead look while we stayed over Christmas. The unit was comfortably furnished, and wood was provided for the stove.

    The only negative thing I have to say about the terms of the rental is that the check-out time of ten a.m. is too early.

    My writing coach and I went to finish my book even though they have a My writing coach and I went to finish my book even though they have an air mattress which I do not want to sleep on my writing coach and I decided to just share the big king bed .

    Oh Beautiful setting love love love the privacy and at the same time appreciate that there were people close by just in case. Beautiful location the BED!!! Omg !! The most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. I want to go back just to get another nights sleep!

    Great hosts and my favorite were there very sweet and fun dogs Bonnie & Clyde. They were well behaved and quiet and sadly not roaming but easy to go pet and give a few treats to.

    The cottage is lovely, and was a great place for us to use as a home base for some adventures. I will say though that it wasn’t as private as the listing suggested, but we also didn’t feel too exposed. The rental process was odd, since it’s actually done through a 3rd party company other than VRBO. It wasn’t bad, just different. I think the listing should mention that at least because it caught me off guard. It was raining almost our entire trip which was lovely. We didn’t really get a chance to enjoy the koi pond, but what we saw of it from the main drive it was gorgeous. The whole property is stunning, especially in the rain! I imagine that big tree in front looks amazing in the fall.

    Overall, it is a great property and I would likely stay here again. The host is super nice too!
