  • Perfect Birthday


    Stayed in this cottage over the weekend to celebrate my birthday. The location was close to restaurants, shops, and wine tasting rooms. This is a cute and cozy cottage. The farm animals on the grounds added so much character to this listing.

    The cottage was well stocked with snacks, water, and delicious breakfast foods, including fresh eggs. Yummy!

    I would definitely recommend this listing to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway.

    Thank you Angela!

  • Cozy cottage


    This cottage was lovely! It was comfortable, clean, and the owner was great. They were not only responsive but also very generous with snacks, fresh eggs, and food for breakfast. It was the perfect location to go into the town. Would absolutely recommend this to all!

  • Pretty, cozy and comfy


    Such a cute place, and in a pretty country setting. The cottage was supplied with everything you might need, including a variety of breakfast items, plus snacks and a few drinks. It is a short drive to Julian, but far enough away that the setting was quiet and serene. I felt so peaceful there. I hope to go back soon.
