About the Property

Cottages, 1 Bedroom each, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Nestled on eight acres of rustic and magical gardens, The Cottages are two single-family, one-bedroom residences located just one block from the Village of Centreville. Please note that our cottages are not suitable for small children. Our Brinton Cottage includes a full-sized kitchen, living room, dining room, dressing room and single bath, one bedroom with queen-sized bed, and large front porch with views of the meadow. Our Harvey 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.

Why New Castle County, DE, USA:
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.
