"My husband, two kids and I have stayed at Cottage now for three summers, for a week to 10 days in late August. These have been some of the most magical days of our life! We hang out on the porch looking over the massive, expansive grass lawn, breathing in the oxygen and serenity... all you can see is grass and trees, and in the distance, the red hen house, with beautiful funny chickens running around in the mornings. After breakfast, we head down to the lake, a couple minutes walk, and swim on-and-off all day, using the canoes and paddle boats. The lake is gorgeous and clean, surrounded by lovely trees, and features little fish and turtles that sun themselves on logs. Peg and her husband keep the grounds so well groomed that you get the feel of being on an old classic estate with rolling hills and landscaping to admire. It's relaxing and lovely. Peg and her husband are great hosts while giving you all the privacy you need to feel you are in your own secluded space. Peg rides around in the mornings on her golf cart with eggs from the hen house, and she's been really generous to let our daughter, who is 8, ride around with her and help collect the eggs. I can't recommend Cottage more. The furnishings are modest, the beds are very comfortable with nice linens, and the little brick and wood house is all set up for grilling and time spent reflecting on the porch. There's also a screened-in room in back that the kids love to play in. (Our other child has been an infant to 2 year old when we've visited). I hope we can visit every year.
We visited once in autumn and it was just as gorgeous, refreshing and intoxicating as it is in summer."
