Come Relax, Refresh, Retreat In A Quaint, Stone Cottage On Our Working Farm!
About Merre Putnam
I love: creating and designing things, learning, gardening, reading, anything having to do with off the beaten path adventure, fun, uniqueness, and bargains. Re-purposing things and working with people is energizing to me, but the best is hanging out with our 8 children (4 original and 4 spouses) and eight grandchildren. I enjoy traveling and staying with other Airbnb hosts.
Merre Putnam purchased this Cottage in 1998

Cottage is just as neat and clean as advertised. Felt instantly at home. Kitchen should leave no one wanting for anything, regardless how elaborate a meal you may want to prepare. Owners are available, but not on site, ensuring almost total privacy. Only slight quibble I have, is location. The property is not quite as remote, as it may appear. The property fronts two blacktop highways, and gets a surprisingly large amount of traffic, day and night. You will not forget you're in the 21st century, while outside. Highly recommend, with the one caveat.
Adorable little hidden gem
The owner of the property was out of the country when we stayed. The interaction with her fill-in was less than pleasant. We were prepared to be very aggravated when we arrived but I'm so glad we continued on. You could tell just by walking in that they really put thought and love into this little cottage. It's quiet and peaceful and my kids were amazed at the animals and they didn't even ask for their screens!! It was clean and there were farm fresh eggs in the fridge. My only comment about the property is that the beds are small. If you're a person who is on the larger side, don't plan to share a bed with your significant other. I recommend this experience whole-heartedly.
My family enjoyed staying at the cottage. It was super clean and peaceful. I recommend staying here!
Nice and cozy place to stay
Our hosts were very gracious and helpful and left us home made bread and fresh eggs. The cabin is cozy and on a farm. We so enjoyed the peace and quiet and especially the animals. Jill the cat ran out of the barn to greet us every time we drove in. The scenery is beautiful! I put 4 stars simply because the stairs are tricky.
Great family friendly stay!
It was such a pleasant stay at the Cottage in Carthage! The location, scenary, animal friends, and all were amazing! My kids really enjoyed the farm animals and were so happy to feed and learn a little about them as well. It was excellent service with everything you need to really enjoy your stay! Thank you so much again for everything Merre!
The property is just beautiful! The cottage is nice and comfortable and the animals are so friendly. The hosts were very attentive and welcoming. They went above and beyond to make us comfortable and relaxed! We will be returning!
