Enchanting little cottage
What an enchanting little cottage! We loved being here to rest and recover after much joy, excitement, family and fun over Christmas. We both have busy and sometimes stressful jobs and this little round house felt like a great hiding place. The grounds are gorgeous even in winter an d we can't wait to come back in other seasons to see the woods, trails and flowers. It rained quite a bit this trip, but it did not disappoint because the inside, with the little fireplace, was so cozy. We enjoyed the ceiling and exposed beams, and wondered, "How did he do this?" Thank you for an amazing time! The cottage was clean, cozy, and had everything we needed. Until next time!
Wonderful experience at a beautiful little house. We loved our 2 days there, and would definitely come back again!
The Little Round House was perfect! The owners were friendly and generous hosts! They provided helpful information about where to purchase fresh sea food and even shared a recipe for crab cakes. Those crab cakes were the best we had ever tasted! Thank you for a wonderful experience! We really enjoyed our hikes, trips to Gettysburg, and making s’mores by the fire. We look forward to returning!
Cute and secluded, but still close to food and entertainment
Had a wonderful time at the little round house, beautiful property and adorable well appointed lodging. You won't be disappointed.
We really enjoyed our visit to The Little Round House. Country setting, privacy and every thing we needed (other than food and drink) was there. Loved the eye level view of the meadow and bird feeders when in the kitchen. Very much enjoyed the golf cart tour with our host, Chris.
Best Stay of My Life!
Fantastic! Romantic! Magical! ...there just aren’t enough wonderful words to describe the Little Round House. From the exquisitely private and natural setting to the amazing handcrafted furniture a structural details, the fire pit, BBQ, and quietly tittering creek, the entire experience was that of a dream like fantasy. Yes, this place is hobbit land! We wish we could stay forever.
