Perfectly quaint! Can't wait to return!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved my stay. Debra was a fantastic host with great recommendations for local places to eat and hangout. My original booking was postponed due to a hurricane and the owners were so kind to not only allow me to reschedule, they added in an extra day for free. The cottage is adorable and perfect for 1-2 people, stocked with all necessities. It is secluded just enough, yet a short drive to everything you could want or need. The yard was perfect for my dog to enjoy the outdoors and it was overall very peaceful. Lots of water toys to enjoy! I kayaked with a dolphin and enjoyed the canoe too. I cannot wait to go back!

This cottage was perfect ! It was exactly like the pictures posted

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival to this cottage we were meant with an abundance of wildlife. This was super refreshing and relaxing to watch the squirrels and the birds ! We got out of our truck and looked around the yard was well maintained and landscape was gorgeous, with plenty of places to sit all around the yard to enjoy the outdoors and animals. Sitting out by the canal was super peaceful, with the tiki torches lit. My husband being able to fish all day was perfect for him. The water was crystal clear. Have the kayaks & canoe at our disposal was great ! We had a Chance to meet the owners, what sweet people ! Can't say enough great things about this cottage or the hospitality we exsperianced !

Thank you to the Schultz family

Great cottage, relaxing environment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 2 nights and enjoyed every minute. The cottage is beautifully decorated with a mix of antiques and tropical decor. outside is well equipped with a canoe , kayaks ,and grill to cook on. The river runs right behind the cottage in a quiet peaceful setting. Comfortable queen size bed, pet friendly, overall a great time for us.
