  • So cute!


    My husband and I went up for a last minute trip to look at properties in the area and this place was so cute. Our puppy loved the property and loved running around the trail. It was in a nice remote location which was awesome to get away but not too far from things to do. The little touches like leaving a bag of chili was much appreciated since we got in so late and nothing was open. We were excited to have some food! I had never been to Cellar 1914 and it was great to get a flight of wine and discover a new favorite place. We would definitely stay again!

  • Lovely "Country Cottage"


    We were in town for a wedding and truly enjoyed everything about this cute little "country cottage." I hope I have reason to visit it again.
