  • Just what we were looking for


    The house is well decorated and appointed, and was comfortable and a great option for our family (including our golden retriever). Would definitely consider again next time we are in the area!

  • Really great stay!!


    Seven adults stayed for two nights and, though we were out and about a lot for a family wedding, we really enjoyed our time here. They stocked the cottage with everything you could expect. One review said the kitchen and cottage itself were quite small, but we certainly didn't feel that way. Plenty of parking space, great bathrooms, and pretty comfy beds. Tons of closet space in the master bedroom for everyone's clothes. Smelled good, looked great, and felt very comfortable. We didn't have time to really enjoy the firepit or adorable pub/darts room this time, but we'll be back for another visit!
