    Quiet, peaceful and beautiful surroundings away from, but close by the big city. Great value and amenities. You are at home here; not at a commercial establishment

    Aileen is SOOPAH and the cottage lovely....nestled by the Wade river, Doctors Bay. A scenically beautiful and tranquil spot. The cottage is historic and was interesting to learn about. Aileen has created a comfy summer bach.
