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

Kim and Esther did a wonderful job making me and my girlfriend feel right at home as soon as we got there. The cottage was beautiful and had a very inviting and home-y feeling too it :)

Quiet, Exceptionally Clean and Great Host!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Blue Door Cottage in Amish Country! Esther is an exceptional host and has devoted great attention to the details of her cozy little cottage. Everything was exceptionally clean and organized with all the amenities you may hope for. The additional little things (welcome treats, milk and juice in the refrigerator upon arrival) she added helped to make us even more comfortable and were pleasant surprises. The peace and quiet of the area was just what we were looking for. Thanks for sharing your wonderful place with us for a few days!

Quiet. Good location. HomeAway did not send address. Google satellite worked

  • 5 of 5

It was as described - and I would stay here again. Absolutely great hosts - wish we could have spent more time with them. Milk, juice in fridge. Very clean everywhere. Poor AT&T cell coverage - had to go down the drive - but that was true throughout the county. I hear Verizon is much better. Not that we needed it, but no wash machine or dryer. The walk from the parking space to the cottage was accommodated with a wagon for the suitcases - nice touch.

Adorable private country cottage!

Beautiful country location. Private. Quiet. Wonderful Mennonite hospitality. Charming cottage. Suggest if you're tall, ask owner about interior dimensions prior to booking. Would stay there again.

Birthday Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful visit. Our mother turned 80 years old and we thought going to Amish country would be the perfect match. The cottage was comfy and very clean. Esther and her husband made our stay perfect! Esther had cookies waiting for us upon arrive. We had many laughs on the front porch sharing stories about when we were growing up. I would definitely stay there again. 👍?👍?

Our Stay Was Amazing

  • 5 of 5

Esther & Kim were very kind and showed amazing hospitality. We were blown away by all of the treats (fresh bread, OJ, coffee, creamer, jam, sparkling juice, etc)! Also they let us borrow a cookie sheet when we wanted to bake some cookies.

We also loved the cottage. The bed was comfortable and everything was clean and cozy. It was a great place to stay when wanting to get away from the city and it was great to have peace and quiet on their lovely property. It also is great if you want to explore Sugarcreek and the surrounding area. We definitely recommend people stay at this cottage!
