The cottage is even more beautiful in real life than in the pictures. Old charm with all the modern amenities. From before we arrived the owner 's instructions were clear and that made our arrival super smooth and easy. The handbook provided was very useful and recommendations spot on especially for dining. The location is great and provides easy access to all the little beautiful towns. The peace and quiet provided were like nothing I've ever experienced... we look forward to returning to Fox End for sure !
