  • The Cottage was beautiful

    The Cottage was beautiful. The layout was perfect for 2 people. We had plenty of space and the views were breathtaking. We loved our morning coffee watching the farm animals busy with their morning feeding. The outside deck was the perfect spot to relax and enjoy. The cottage as stocked with groceries and paper products to get us started as well as plenty of linens and kitchen items. We were grateful for a nice, clean and comfortable space to call our own for 2 weeks. Thank you!

    The cottage is close (20-50 metres) to the house and garage and outdoor area of the hosts but they are very unobtrusive. It looks out over their patch of land with various animals, rural and unpolished - restful, The cottage is very new, clean and well-equipped with everything you need. The double bed in the bedroom is excellent, but I found the roll-out bed not too comfortable - good for kids maybe. Beware of the rooster crowing at 5AM! Great location for biking and walking.

  • New, modern and lovely cottage set in a beautiful setting

    New, modern and lovely cottage set in a beautiful setting. Owners very accommodating and helpful. Our little girl loved the open space and the many animals including chickens, turkeys and horses. Located right on the cycling trail it is great for all cycling and walking enthusiasts. We would highly recommend a stay here.
