Great peaceful stay

  • 4 of 5

Evan cottage was very neat and clean. Locals were helpful and friendly. Only complaint is the golf cart rental. We were here less than 2 days (got cart Saturday evening and left Monday morning) but got charged 3 day rental. Other than that no complaints.

This was our second stay at Evan Cottage. It felt like going home. We are hoping to be able to stay a couple of weeks in the Spring. Perfect for a couples get away.

A Great Little Place

  • 4 of 5

Evans Cottage is a great little place. Nothing fancy, but it's clean, safe, quiet and (literally) centrally located. Cottage was well equipped, instructions clear and easy, and host is prompt with his replies.
