Property description


Sleeps 4 Total

A truly romantic property on 4.6 private, wooded acres. The cottage is nestled on either side of a gently sloping and beautiful, natural 70 foot waterfall - the sound of the water will lull you to sleep after you enjoy a wonderful day, either staying at home or venturing out into the culture and activity of the area.

The flowers and garden on the property are stunning in spring, summer and fall. But if you are interested in a winter or holiday treat you can snuggle up and get cozy around a fireplace and in the warmth of friends and family. These homes and land really draw you in. It is a magical place that makes you feel that the fairies are living amongst you.

This property is the perfect spot for:

~ Family Reunions
~ Retreats
~ Small Gatherings
~ Outdoor Entertaining
~ Multi-family Vacations
~ Girls’ Weekends

Make an appointment to personally visit this property to experience the entire range of possibilities.

Nicknamed “The Shrek Cottage” because it is right out of a fairy tale.
