About Pauline Sullivan

We are the Sullivans, Pauline and Clair. We live on the property, which we find very convenient, problems, help with restaurant recommendations, even pet sitting have all been our pleasure to perform.

Pauline Sullivan purchased this cottage in 1979

Why Pauline Sullivan chose Historic Old Town

We originally purchased 659 King Street, for its close proximity to Live theatre and a wonderful golf course. It was originally used by the family as 2 cottages, 1 for guests. After retiring we decided to live in the front cottage and rent the rear cottage as a vacation spot.

"Home From Home"

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at Alnwick cottage whilst visiting Daughter and had an amazing time. Cottage is awesome and will always be our first choice when we visit again. Beautiful gardens and sun room, and the cottage is so homely and just perfect for a holiday or short break with everything you would need, comfy bed and lovely soft towells.

The cottage is attached to the owners property and you still feel as if your very private. Nice knowing Pauline and Clair are there if needed for anything. Short walk to the most amazing little town and close to many attractions. Back in UK now and really miss it, thanks so much Pauline and we hope to visit again soon if you'll have us......Carol and Ian....x

Pauline was a gracious host; the cottage was quaint and lovely.

  • 4 of 5

Pauline met us upon arrival and ensured that we were set up for our weekend getaway. While she does live next door, she allowed us our privacy--we even had our own section of the garden to lounge in, complete with apple tree! The cottage was clean, cozy, and lovely. And it only took about 20 minutes to walk everywhere. We did find the beds rather uncomfortable (they could use an upgrade?), but this could also be a matter of personal taste, as Im sure there are people who enjoy a firmer mattress. But overall, we would highly recommend Pauline's cottage.

Quaint, great location

  • 5 of 5

Pauline was a wonderful hostess! She greeted us upon our arrival, showed us around, oriented is to the area with a map, and provided several local brochures! The cottage was very well stocked with all linens & towels (& tea!). The patio (enclosed former carport) was our favorite place! We were able to keep our bicycles out of the weather. We ate dinner at the table there as well as relaxing in the lounge chairs. The selection of books was nice too! Location was great! We rode our bicycles on the many trails, short ride to town and several nearby wineries. We also walked into town. Unfortunately we didn't get to enjoy the beautiful gardens as much as we'd like (mostly due to weather and full schedule).
