Better than a Hotel
My son, husband and I recently stayed at Kara’s Cottage. We haven’t ever rented a house/ room for a vacation. So, we weren’t sure what to expect. After staying at Kara’s Cottage the bar has been set high. We had a great experience! When we arrived we saw the beautiful outdoor deck area which had tables, chairs a grill and the cutest outdoor lights great for outdoor visiting. Once we got settled into our room we just couldn’t stop talking about how this was such a great find and how homey it felt. From the adorable home decor, the soft sheets, the aromatherapy shower gel, the streaming services to the ice cold beer glasses in the freezer. There wasn’t anything that she left out. We enjoyed our beverages out of the deck with the lights were a perfect end to our trip. Highly recommend this place it will not disappoint! Kara has thought of everything to make this a awesome experience!

Clean, spacious apartment style living
The Birch Bark Cottage unit was excellent. Two bedrooms, one bath plus kitchen, dining and living areas. Rooms aren’t huge but there was plenty of space for me and my two teens to hang out comfortably together and also have our own space. The unit was fully stocked with towels, extra sheets and blankets, simple breakfast items, plus plenty of kitchen supplies for people staying longer and cooking in unit. It’s really like staying at a friends apartment when they aren’t here, The location is close to downtown but not too close. Food, coffee, drug store all nearby. I recommend an eye mask and ear plugs for light sleepers - window treatments aren’t black out, and it is next to a main road. Those things don’t bother us and would not keep us from staying here again. There is a noise machine in one of the bedrooms, The unit was in excellent condition- looks freshly painted - and very, very clean. Better than many hotels I’ve been in.
