About Bill Ainslie
My wife and I, along with our two boys moved to Florida from Upstate NY in 1983 and bought this home in 1984. Besides the main house, where we now reside as empty nesters, there is one upstairs apartment and the cottage. My wife's mother and father lived in the cottage until her dad passed away and her mother moved into an ALF in 2014, which left the cottage empty. We have had the apartment completely remodeled which is now being offered as a vacation rental.
Bill Ainslie purchased this Cottage in 1984

Great Little Place
The property was exactly what we were looking for. Good neighborhood, and the owners are pleasant and very accommodating. We had to bring a trailer because of all the monsoon like rain between South Carolina and Florida. The owners let us park it on the property, which meant the world to us. Thanks Bill and Betty!
Enjoyed our stay!
I have stayed in many places during my travels and this place is certainly one of the best. Very clean and neat. Everything you need is on hand. The owner was kind and helpful. The price is great for what the property offers.
Fox Haven Cottage was very cozy and comfortable. Not lacking for any amenities and Bill and Betty were very gracious hosts.
We enjoyed walking to the lake and around the walking paths. Lots of restaurants and supermarkets close by.
Nice, quiet, safe neighborhood with a nice area to walk. Centrally located to town and wonderful hosts!
Thank you for the great review. We are certainly glad that you had a great time. We always strive to make every guest feel right at home when they stay with us. We look forward to having you come back the next time you're in our area.
