About the property

Lovely, beautifully furnished 1 bedroom "queen size bed" / 1 bath cottage. Perfect honeymoon or romantic getaway spot.

Love the peace and quiet yet near to town when needed. We cooked while there but had to provise a little since there was no stove/oven but not really an issue for us. We wanted a peaceful comfortable mini getaway and found it. Will come again.

Absolutely wonderful! Spent our honeymoon here and couldn't be happier with our choice.

  • 5 of 5

Cottage is exactly as pictured and the owners, the Schultz's could not have been better to us. Upon arrival we were greeted with a handwritten Congtats note and a very sweet surprise which was totally unexpected but lovely and appreciated. The property is tranquil, peaceful and serene- which is just what we wanted. And the surrounding area is filled with plenty to do and multiple great restaurants to choose from. Dennis recommended several for us. All of which we tried and loved. Thank you! We will definetly be back in the future.
