Even better than we anticipated!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the cottage was magical. From the working fireplace in the dining room to the sound of the running brook through the open windows, this was an extra-special getaway. The house was clean and tidy, kitchen was well-equipped, plenty of room for an entire family -- even though it was just two of us. Thank you to Mike for his thoughtfulness in leaving fresh fruit and fresh flowers -- small gestures of kindness that made the house even more inviting. Looking forward to visiting again soon!

Peaceful paridise!

We found the home to be very comfortable and enjoyed listening to the rushing stream. The toilets were a pleasant surprise and we are looking getting one for our home!

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

Quiet, clean, has everything you need. Fenced in backyard was great! Had a few inches of fresh snow the weekend I stayed here, it was great to have the carport to cover up my car! Hot tub is perfect under the stars. Great getaway for a quite weekend. Dam Diner is on the way to Stratton, talk about a score, love that place.
