My grown children- and grandkids- and I met here as halfway between our homes. It was a perfect weekend! The house is absolutely beautiful with so many thoughtful touches for guests. The setting is lovely with pastures in the back yard and across the street- the kids loved seeing the cattle close up. There’s a screened in porch looking out on the fire pit and woods perfect for relaxing. And a well equipped basement with plenty of toys. The host is a sweetheart- very friendly and accommodating. We recommend this location very highly!
From the owner: "Oh, Thank you so very much! I truly appreciated you and your family choosing The Nickel Cottage and showing such LOVE for it! Everything was left in A+ condition. I am hoping that if you decide to come back this way, you will think of us and stay with us. Please give my love to your family."
