  • Cottage Mary Rose

    "Magical, mystical, memorable! My stay far exceeded anything for which I could have hoped! The cottage was neat, clean, and well-prepared, and Irish Soda Bread on the large wooden kitchen table welcomed me. Stunning gardens and Hydrangeas, Cosmos, and Roses were softly stellar. Baskets of flowering plants at windows and on the ground charmed. A nice deck connected the cottage’s backdoor with a lovely stream—relaxing, soothing. The red trim theme of the exterior was continued inside by a delightful red antique stove in the kitchen that was balanced by a red sofa and chair in another part of the cottage. Impressive. The mammoth fireplace with its massive cross-beam became one of the favorite aspects of my stay. I often reclined on the over-sized padded antique bench, leaned back on the pillows, and enjoyed the fire. Another touch that made it feel like I was borrowing a friend’s get-away instead of being in a rental was the ideal sprinkling of antique photos blended with family photos. A soft rain fell one afternoon, then the sun broke through to highlight the flowers and plants. The effect? As if liquid diamonds had blown into the gardens—magical. In the evenings, I dimmed the lights with dimmer switches. Warm, relaxing, almost mystical. The large brass bed was another plus. As soon as I snuggled into the plush bedding on the ideal mattress, I drifted into a deep sleep. No review would be complete without mentioning the caretakers of Cottage Mary Rose! They didn’t only take care of the physical property, but served as outstanding host and hostess, as well. In the wee hours of the morning I was leaving, while stirring the dying orange embers, a song I hadn’t heard for decades floated through my mind. At first, I couldn’t quite place it. Then I realized it was the end of the finale to Camelot: Don’t let it be forgot That once there was a spot For one brief shining moment that was known As Camelot. I doubt that any place or experience could ever come closer to life in Camelot than my stay at Cottage Mary Rose!"
