Property description

Nestled on eight acres of rustic and magical gardens, The Cottages are two single-family residences located just one block from the Village of Centreville. Our two-bedroom cottage includes a full-sized kitchen, living room, dining room, dressing room and single bath, two bedrooms with queen-sized beds, and large front porch with views of the meadow. Our one-bedroom cottage includes a kitchen/family room with beautiful wooded views, one bedroom with queen-sized bed, a dressing room/office, shower room with vanity, water closet with vanity, and small patio overlooking the quarry waterfall. Available for short-term rental, these tastefully updated and stylishly furnished homes offer both comfort and privacy - a true home away from home.
The Cottages and its surrounding property are large enough for our guests to welcome their own visitors. Garden rooms and terraces are perfect places to unwind. Walking the beautiful grounds provides both entertainment and relaxation for weary travelers. Every turn on a meandering path through the woodland gardens reveals something new.
The fully-equipped kitchens includes: full-sized range with oven, stardard-sized refrigerator, toaster oven, microwave oven, Keurig coffee maker, and dishwasher.
Off-street parking.
The Cottages have been in the owner's family for four generations. Walking distance to restaurants.
Please note that this property is not handicapped accessible.

Manager info

About: Owner, Bill Duncan, is a prominent landscape designer in the Wilmington, Delaware and Chester County, Pennsylvania areas. Born and raised on the property, Bill takes great pride and care in the management and maintenance of The Cottage. Christina Duncan, your contact person for The Cottage, is a personal trainer and also was educated at Longwood Gardens in nearby Kennett Square, PA. She is the former owner of The Scarlett House Bed and Breakfast in Kennett Square, PA.

Why Wilmington:
We decided to make our ancestral homes available for short-term rental so that we can offer a home away from home to travelers who prefer an alternative to hotels and bed and breakfasts.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The Cottage is your home while you are here. You will not be bothered by staff and other guests while you are enjoying the peace and quiet of the property and cottage. The Cottage properties adjoins the owner's so there is someone available should there be any questions. The Cottage is a short drive to many area attractions yet is not in the busy mix of traffic.
