Tea, coffee, green tea and condiments are provided.

    They loved their stay so much my husband and I are trying to find a couple of free days to spend at the Cottage. They said that there was a lot to do and especially enjoyed the sauna, the peace and quiet and the house. Thank you

    Lovely cottage hidden away in the bush. The name "bird song" is very accurate.
