  • Nice cottage at a reasonable price

    "This is a relatively basic cottage with all the amenities you might want staying on vacation. The bed is comfortable and the cottage is overall clean. John is very good about solving issues and wants to make sure you have a good stay, whatever it takes. It really is a great little cottage to stay for an extended period of time. Since it is close to the highway, it does get loud and the windows don't block all that much noise. If you are a light sleeper, this probably isn't for you, but it was an acceptable trade off and we got used to the noise after a few nights. It was great to find a flexible cottage that is walking distance to the city, trails and allows dogs. We would recommend staying here."

  • Great Location... Easy Walk to Downtown... Helpful Owner

    "We came to this charming town to visit our son for the holidays. This cottage is in a quiet neighborhood and convenient to everything we needed...restaurants, supermarkets, sightseeing, etc. The cabin is small, and it has a Murphy bed. What it lacks in space, it makes up in charm. It has a cute kitchen area and a very nice bathroom. The outdoor space is lovely and picturesque. The owner was very helpful both prior to our arrival and during our stay when we had a problem with the TV. She fixed it immediately. Would I return? Absolutely!"

  • So Happy With Our Stay

    "Our family of two adults and two kids (ages 4 and 6) stayed for three nights and couldn't be happier with our experience. We were in the area to visit family and it was just what we needed. It was clean, quiet, lovely and so close to town. We loved that there was a fenced yard for the kids to play in and we loved having a central meeting place for our extended family to converge (they live in Santa Cruz and Los Altos). One of our days was spent with our relatives meeting us at the house, making a picnic lunch and then going to Oak Meadow Park to ride the train and carousel. I should also mention that there is a huge soaking tub in the bathroom that we loved! Sid was wonderful to work with and we felt right at home. Thank you and we hope to be back again when we visit family."
