  • Bay Cottage is a hidden jewel!! We could have spent every day...

    Bay Cottage is a hidden jewel!! We could have spent every day on the deck just enjoying the beautiful views and tranquility! The house is well equipped. We were able to enjoy several meals in but we're only a few minutes drive from The charming village of Russell. Bay Cottage was the perfect romantic retreat for us on our 25th wedding anniversary! Highly recommended!
