  • The bach is perched above Queen Charlotte Drive and the Bookabach website...

    The bach is perched above Queen Charlotte Drive and the Bookabach website photos give an accurate idea of its setting. Inside the bach is beautifully presented with an eye to detail and comfort. Renate's pottery studio is an added bonus.

  • The cottage was well equipped and lovely, filled with Renate's work

    The cottage was well equipped and lovely, filled with Renate's work. The porch overlooking the garden and the sound was beautiful and peaceful,a great place to spend both mornings and evenings. One downside is the rather steep driveway but was still manageable, just unexpected.

  • What a delightful cottage even in a downpour

    What a delightful cottage even in a downpour. Peaceful and very special. Renate has her pottery for sale next door. Loved it. We'll have to go back to see the beautiful view in the sunshine!
