About owner/property manager

Kim & I have been married for 33 years and enjoy travelling and meeting new people. We have traveled to Europe, Central and South America. We know how important it is to find a place that is clean, comfortable and homey.

Our goal as hosts is to provide a place where guests can come and find an immaculate place of comfort. We love when you feel at home here and look forward to meeting you!

owner/property manager purchased this cottage in 2016

Why owner/property manager chose Dundee

The land where the Cottage is located belonged to my Father as pasture land when I was growing up. The creek right below the Cottage is one I used to play in as a child so it is very special to me.

What makes this cottage unique

You will love the quiet and serenity on the front porch as you enjoy your morning coffee. You may get to see some deer if you are up early enough since they roam through the adjoining woods and cross our yard.

You will be able to hear the Amish buggies out on the road as well as lots of birds and other wildlife.

There is nothing that refreshes the soul as much as taking time to listen to the wonderful sounds of nature in the country! We know you will love it here!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Loves the Blue Door Cottage.

  • 5 of 5

Esther and Kim were very welcoming. The attention to detail for the Blue Door Cottage was over and above expectations. The cottage is beautiful. Very cozy with plenty of room. Breakfast foods, milk, juice, coffee, creamer, Keurig (!) in room, as well as, a regular coffee maker..... and coffee for both. Fresh baked cookies when we arrived. Beautiful location and area. We were along a creek surrounded by trees and beautiful flowers. Over and above with amenities. Would definitely recommend this Cottage. Was a real blessing to me and my mom.

charming and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I were looking for a unique place to stay just for a quick getaway. This little cottage was just the place! The cottage was charming and very comfortable. It's a very small place, but bigger than it looks with the large upstairs bedroom. We appreciated the comfy living room furniture and the beds and pillows were also comfortable. There is no TV, but there is a DVD player. They provide a few movies, or bring your own. They also provided light breakfast food,but remember to get milk if you will need it. The little porch is a relaxing place to spend part of your evening or morning. If you're lucky Oreo or Mocha , the resident cats, will visit and demand to be petted. We met Esther and she wanted to make sure that all was well for our stay. We've stayed at many B&Bs and this one comes highly recommended :) The McCoys April 2018

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time at the Blue Door Cottage. It was charming, very cozy and the perfect place for our weekend getaway. The kitchen was well equipped to meet our cooking needs and the bed was very comfortable. Esther even had delicious, fresh baked cookies waiting for us - Yum!

It's obvious that Esther & Kim take good care of their cottage and we hope to stay there again when we're back in the area to enjoy the local cheese, wine & broasted chicken!
