About the Property

House, 2.5 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5-7)

The Cottage is a second 'daily rental' offered by Barb Janssen featuring all the comforts of home. This house is located across the street from the Bluff View House.

The Cottage offers a relaxing, quiet and cozy atmosphere with hand-crafted butternut kitchen cabinets and oak countertops. Just the right amount of 'rustic' combined with 'modern' makes this house a great lodging option. This fully furnished and clean 2.5 bedroom bungalow sleeps five comfortably.

The yard offers a cobblestone patio with table and chairs, barbeque grill, shade trees, lilac bushes, sumac trees, etc. Off street parking for two is provided next to the back door.
