Fun for the whole family

  • 4 of 5

This home was perfect for our group of 3 adults and 4 children, all family. We came to see the life-size Noah's Ark (which is totally worth the trip!). It was nice to have a home to cook meals in and plenty of space to play games and enjoy time together. The kids loved the upstairs loft, it was perfect for them. They also enjoyed the tire swing, but sometimes would hit the tree since the tire swing was so close to it. My sister slept on the futon in the living room. Her only complaint was that the blinds did not keep out the street light at night, maybe some curtains in the living room would help with that. Only one bathroom for 7 of us was a stretch, but we managed just fine. The rooms were all very spacious and my kids say they hope to come back again sometime!

Absolutely wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We are so thankful for being able to stay at the cottage while down to visit the Ark - it was perfect for spending time with our family in a wholesome setting. The cottage was clean, homey and so close to the Ark. We loved walking through the cemetary across the street.

Cozy place for a family getaway.

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was great for our family weekend getaway. Cozy and safe. Just minutes from the ark encounter and easy access to the freeway. We made a short trip to the creation museum from here as well.
