The cottage, built in the late 1600’s, is a classic, where function defines form, where light and shadow create mood and atmosphere, where every nook and cranny provide its own adventure, where nature blends into everyday life… Perfect for the whole family, a quiet romantic getaway or to write the great American novel.
The Cottage is cozy and charming with great attention to detail. The first floor contains the primary living quarters with a working fireplace, full kitchen, full bath, enclosed sun porch and full size comfortable futon bed/couch. Ascend a modest spiral staircase to the sleeping quarters with pitched roof, one full bed and two twin beds in a separate room.
In the spring and summer use the air conditioning or refresh in the gentle breezes that flow through open windows. In colder weather there is forced air heat or warm yourself with the working wood fireplace. Relax, explore… enjoy!
