Nice place!

  • 4 of 5

The cottage itself is really nice. It looks like it was a converted garage or storage house, but it was very well done. It had two nice sized bedrooms, a living room with a flat screen TV, a bathroom, a little kitchen area with a portable electric cook top and a dinette. It would have been a really comfortable stay if there was AC in the bedroom (we only used the master bedroom-- it had a ceiling fan, but it was not very strong). The AC in the living room was nice, but the cool air really didn't make it to the bedroom. The location was really good-- quiet and tranquil.

Owner's Response: I installed the brand new $10,000 air conditioning system that the professional air-conditioner company recommended I install for that space just last year. Now that I have been made aware that there is a problem, I will certainly provide extra fans.

A great place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the quiet country setting that was near all the places we wanted to visit. We enjoyed the horses on the property and the availability of the pool and laundry facilities.
