About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Hummingbird Cottage is a stylishly furnished modern cabin in a quiet, north side neighborhood. The Hummingbird is a 475 square foot studio apartment with all modern conveniences, including free Wi-Fi, flat screen TV and a washer and dryer.

The sleeping area has a pillow top, queen sized bed and a nightstand with drawer and a iPod/iPhone dock clock.

The full-sized kitchen is outfitted with Ikea cabinetry and fully stocked with cooking utensils. It also has a double porcelain sink, microwave, gas stove, fridge, toaster, coffee maker and pantry.

The bathroom features a vintage cast-iron porcelain tub with shower and porcelain sink.

The walk-in closet has a washer and dryer, saving you from trips to the Laundromat.

The living area has a 32' Toshiba flat-screen LCD TV with integrated DVD player. The TV swivels so that it may be viewed from anywhere in the apartment.

The front porch is covered and furnished with a table, chairs and an electric grill.

The gravel driveway/yard is fenced but not fully enclosed. Dogs are welcome with a nonrefundable $50 fee per dog but there is no secure enclosure so they must remain leashed.

Nice Cottage

  • 4 of 5

Our only complaint is the unvented natural gas heater which caused the place to smell like a natural gas leak. We basically turned off the heater when we were in the cottage. Otherwise, we would definitely stay there again.

Owner's Response: The guests had trouble with the heater which was fixed as soon as I heard about it. Unfortunately, they left a note upon departure rather than notifying me during their stay. If they had, it would have been taken care of immediately. Jenny

very clean and new, well appointed, and very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This is a very cosy little cottage right in Alpine in a quiet neighborhood. We stayed two nights, and felt right at home. Everything inside is clean and new, everything you need is there, and all for a great price.

Excellent experience, highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

Great accommodation, great host, centrally located, perfect balance of size and simplicity, no hassle whatsoever, quintessential VRBO experience. Perfect for a single or a couple. Not a lot of great lodging options in the area, better experience than any of the local hotels IMO, very pleased and would definitely stay here again. Thanks!

A Four-Night, Five-Star Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the Hummingbird Cottage for four nights and had and absolutely wonderful stay. The cottage was impeccably clean, beautifully decorated, and comfortable. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed, and the locally roasted coffee was a nice treat. We visit Alpine several times a year, and we plan to book the cottage again. Thank you, Jenny. Your B&B was just perfect!

Better than a regular hotel

  • 5 of 5

If your looking for a place to stay in this area don't stay anywhere else. The place is perfect and Jenny is so hospitable. She accommodated our every need. When I come back to Alpine this is where I'm staying.
