Cute cottage!

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was small but clean. The property was lovely and quiet. It suited our needs as we only stayed one night. Not fancy but certainly worth the money.

Nice Stay but needs upkeep

  • 3 of 5

On a positive note, it did have a small stream, land, front porch with rockers, small fire pit ( no wood) and was private. On a negative note, it was an adjoined cottage and we thought we were getting our own. No views. There were no pastures of horse as depicted online. It was very small, had a bad smell and could have used a better cleaning. There were cob webs everywhere and it just didn't feel clean. We like rustic but rustic can be clean. The beds were like sleeping on marshmallows but some people like that. Just not our preference. The second bed was in the kitchen/living room combination so there's no place to just sit and watch TV or chat (no couch). was priced right for what we got. Unfortunately, I do not think we will ever be back to that cottage. Might be worth paying just a little more to get what we need, and a place that is clean.
