Clean and charming century cottage

  • 5 of 5

This was my second stay at 12 Elm and the home was as lovely as I remembered- clean, bright and full of charm and a short walking distance to shops, restaurants and Huntsville's Main Street. The owners were warm and welcoming; there was a beautiful bouquet of flowers from the cottage garden to greet us and Linda checked in shortly after our arrival to see that we had everything we needed. We hope to return next year and would definitely recommend this home to others.

Wonderful stay in Huntsville!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four rented this beautiful home for 3 nights in January for a little winter getaway. Al and Linda could not have been more warm and welcoming. The house was charming, spotlessly clean and thoughtfully equipped with everything we needed. It was a short 5 minute stroll to Huntsville's charming downtown with plenty of little shops and restaurants to explore. We did 2 day trips to Arrowhead Provincial Park. Just a shame that the weather was too mild to enjoy the skating or tubing trails. We will definitely be returning! The Awde Family.

A gem of a getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed over the New Year's weekend. It was a snowy winter weekend but Huntsville was sufficiently plowed.

The location was pretty much exactly what we were looking for: it's outside the city and near nature for a weekend getaway, but close to a small downtown so that you're not in the middle of nowhere. It takes about 10 minutes to drive to Arrowhead Provincial Park, with groomed cross country skiing paths and (if it's open, which it wasn't this time) a skating trail.

The house was warm and cozy: the fireplace, Christmas tree, and lights on dimmer made it comfy. Rooms and appliances were all very clean and functional. The kitchen was well stocked. (No large soup pot but I guess most people don't plan to go on vacation to cook...!) Little things like cling wrap, napkins, and some coffee and tea were available just in case. Thoughtful touches from warm and helpful hosts!

Also, the place feels roomier than the pictures might suggest. Four adult females fit very comfortably... and we spent quite a bit of time inside.

Seems like a great place to get away to in any season.
