"My family stayed at this property with another family over July 4th weekend. All in all, we are two couples and four kids six and under. We had an amazing time and really look forward to making this an annual trip. Our kids keep asking to go back so we might need to schedule another visit sooner.
The property grounds are fantastic. The vista from the Cottage is breathtaking. The landscaping all around the Cottage, the owners' house, and the rest of the property is lovely. We spent most of our time in the in ground pool and were pleased that pool toys and towels were plentiful. At night, we used the gas grill to BBQ and built a fire (with some difficulty!) in the patio firepit to roast smores. The kids loved roaming the grounds and visiting the various animals. After meals, they would visit the chickens to feed them leftovers, play with the owners' pets, or run around on the grass and catch fireflies. The outdoor layout is perfect for the letting the kids safely run around. There is playground equipment right outside of the Cottage as well as a good size field and chicken coop.
Inside the Cottage, the owners' sense of style and thoughtfulness is clear. The house is stocked with toilet paper and soap (bring napkins, paper towels, etc.). The kitchen is stocked with plenty of dishes and basic cooking oils / spices. Everything was spotless. The beds, sheets, and towels were all comfy.
As a previous reviewer notes, the Cottage has three bedrooms on one side of the house and a master bedroom (with bath) on the other side of the house. This worked well for our group. I should note that the third bedroom on the larger side of the house has a cut-out in the wall that faces the A/C unit on the stairwell. My three year old daughter slept in that room, which was a little difficult because the room is open to the stairwell (and living room below). We needed to turn off the lights on that side of the house (inside and out) so that my daughter's room would be dark and quiet enough. Small inconvenience only. Other than this, the place is very kid-friendly. The owners have a gaggle of grandkids who clearly spend a lot of time there. Our friends used the pack'-n-pack and we all enjoyed the children's books and game throughout the Cottage.
All in all, this was an incredible vacation. The owners are very friendly. Highly recommended."
