                                                              This was a perfect spot for our rest after antique shopping all day! The 2 rooms worked perfectly since I’m up early in search of coffee and my friend sleeps in! Lovely inside and out! Thanks so much!!

                                                              Great Little Cottage

                                                              We loved the experience of our stay at the cottage. It was nice how things were well labeled and the informative binder with information. The homemade cookies were a hit! It was also nice to have plenty of parking. We will be returning in the future.

                                                              Neat, Comfortable Cottage, Convenient location

                                                              Roy J.

                                                              The location was convenient, just off of Hwy 71, in a quiet neighborhood. The cottage is well maintained and neat. The bed is very comfortable. The sitting room with breakfast nook and daybed is also inviting. We would eagerly stay in the cottage during future trips to the bicycle tour. Last but not least, the cookies were delicious.

                                                              Clean and comfy cottage

                                                              We went to Smithville so my husband could ride the local mountain bike trails. We were very happy with our stay at La Petite Maison. It was very clean and cozy. The homemade cookies were delicious. We plan on visiting and staying here again. Highly recommend!

                                                              Very clean and comfortable. Close to main highway 71. Would definitely stay there again.

                                                              This cottage is perfect for a quick getaway. The owners were very hospitable and gave is great tips on where to go fishing. The sweetest thing was being greeted with homemade cookies.
