Guest Comments

“We have been renting a cottage with our children and grandchildren for 5 years – this was the best cottage of all – great for a multigenerational family!’

I & L Silver – 2017

“The descriptions and photos do a a good job of describing the property. The cottage is very well equipped inside and outside. the kitchen is very nicely set up with the the dishes and cooking utensils we needed. There are lots of games and things for the children to amuse themselves with including the water trampoline. We had a great time and would certainly be interested in renting again. We really appreciate the thoughtfulness of the owners. It really helps set up the vacation when you are met at the cottage by such a helpful and friendly owner.”
