About the Property
House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4 max)
The warm master bedroom is dressed with fine linens and is handily located close to the bathroom on the main floor. The second bedroom in the loft has a double bed, sitting area and stunning views of the river. The brightly painted bathroom includes a shower and “maids tub” along with piles of thick towels. The open living room is a cozy sanctuary with comfortable furniture, gas fireplace, folk art, antiques, hardwood floors and rows of windows soaring to the vaulted ceiling. Views of the lawn, decks and river complete the scene with many pots of herbs, flowers and shrubs to enjoy.
The cottage has a fully equipped kitchen, which opens directly onto the deck and features a gas barbecue and patio furniture. The path down to the river, through a stand of ancient evergreens leads to a private stretch of river abundant with wildlife. During the months of October and November watch and listen to the Salmon making their way up the river to spawn. This secluded spot is the perfect escape for couples or families with swimming, fishing, hiking, biking, or just relaxing only steps from your front door.
