"This cottage was absolutely perfect! Lots of stairs, clean, beautiful, best sunsrises ever, quiet, perfect for what we needed. We were looking for an old cottage with lots of history. The stairs from the old Hotel that once was there were on our lot. The old gazebo as well.
We hope to go back to stay there again. The owners were wonderful too. It was very helpful that they lived next door to help us out on a few issuses."
