Truly amazing place, words can't describe the vie!

  • 5 of 5

An exceptional cottage that was spotless, comfortable furniture throughout, top of the line kitchen and "the views". From every window you are on the water. Incredible sunrises, even the master bedroom has a small balcony with table & chairs. Imagine waking up to the sun rising, quiet river sounds, seagulls all while you are having breakfast. First floor is entire windows looking out onto river with large deck & many comfy chaise chairs and table to eat at. This place is so lovely that I've already booked my next visit for 3 weeks in October. By far this is THE place to stay. Everything is close by but cottage is in a private quiet location.

Perfect get away

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay with plenty of room to make a short or long visit comfortable. The unit is right on the river with beautiful a view. The living space on first floor are very comfortable. There is a nice kitchen when you decide to stay in rather than go out to restaurants nearby. Sleeping accommodations are very clean and comfortable. The owner made the booking, check in , checkout very easy. We hope to stay again soon. Thank you!

Excellent place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This house was fantastic. We rented it for a few days and held my sister's winter birthday party there.

The owner was very helpful, accommodating, and hospitable.

The views are wonderful, and the location is perfect for walking to the bars and restaurants in the town.

I'm looking forward to spending a few more days there soon.
