Star Field Cottage can accommodate up to 6 guests (up to 3 couples or a family of 6 and up to 2 well behaved and house trained dogs!) and is beautifully appointed with many amenities, including some local treats like fresh coffee roasted right here in town at StageCoach Coffee and some of the best selections of beer from our very own world renowned Brewery Ommegang! There is a huge glassed in porch for dining as well as an outdoor area for your BBQing pleasures. We have 2 mountain bikes for your use in the warmer months as well as cross country skis and snowshoes for use in the winter months.
