From the owner: "Thank you for choosing Ferry Creek! We welcome you back any time!"
What an amazing experience it was staying at Ferry Creek Cottage. I typically don't leave reviews when staying at homes - but this one deserved it! My boyfriend and I stayed for 4-nights, but easily would've stayed for the month, if we could have. Whether in the house, on the back porch, on the dock, or paddling down river in the kayaks, we had smiles on our faces the entire trip. The house was cleaned to perfection, down to every detail. EVERYTHING that you could've possibly wanted or needed was provided within the house. I have never stayed at an airbnb with more amenities and activities available to us. Between the Kayaks, Fishing Poles, Crab Trap, Grill / Fire Pit, all of our wants and needs were provided to make us feel like we truly didn't need to leave the property once. That being said, when we did explore neighboring towns we happed upon some really cute date night spots and antique shopping as well that made the experience all the better. Ferry Creek Cottage is truly a little oasis, and you can't help but feel at home and happy when staying there. The host was accommodating and gracious, provided wonderful recommendations on local spots to stop by, and our booking experience was both simple and straight-forward. I already can't wait to book my next stay ASAP!
From the owner: "We are so pleased you found the property exactly how we envisioned it to be for our guests! We look forward to having you again as guests!"
