  • Quiet Cottage


    Nice little cottage, clean and well furnished. We loved that it was at the end of the street which was very quiet. Another huge positive was having the trails right in the back yard. We would most definitely return.

    The cottage was pretty much as advertised. Large enough for a small group. Kitchen is equipped for cooking. Internet was very good for streaming and other devices. We would book again.
