They property was great. everything is new and done with excellent worksmanship. Bathrooms are wonderful. Commerical kitchen is great for any one that loves to cook. I will be back!!

This is a wonderful cottage away from it all. It is kept in meticulous condition and you want for nothing. I debated writing a review as to keep this place a secret but decided it was o.k to share it! We spent time in there over Christmas so when we entered the house to the warm fireplace going, and the adorable Christmas tree we knew it was going to be magical. And it was. Can't wait to visit again. Thanks Bruce and Deanna!
