    Great Rustic Cottage for Two

    My husband I enjoyed the ambience and setting at the Garden Cottage. The fencing and stonework were charming. Also, the interior accommodations were accurately described. The parking is tight and the pull-out is on a winding road, but it is the mountains! We have no reservations in recommending a stay here.

    Perfect setting to end our day

    This cottage was super adorable. Location was perfect, Bob and Georgina made sure we had anything and everything we could need to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The house is set perfectly on a hill and I enjoyed watching the deer eat breakfast early in the morning while getting lost in the fall foliage. Their suggestions on meals and hiking were right on par, we truly enjoyed our stay during our “no kids allowed” vacation. It was the perfect time for us to reconnect as husband and wife away from the daily running of work, sports, and school functions. Thank you for sharing your little slice of heaven with us!

    Very Enjoyable Stay

    I greatly enjoyed my time (10 days) in the cottage! The location is great, the cabin is charming and comfortable, and everything I needed was provided. The hosts are friendly and accommodating. I highly recommend.

    Great stay!

    We really enjoyed our stay! Such a great property with lots of charm. The hosts went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. The weather didn't cooperate as we'd hoped, but they offered some helpful suggestions for alternative plans and even allowed us to borrow their toy train set for my son to play with. We particularly liked the fireplace and the porch :)

    Cute, cute, cute cottage with nice vintage details

    Adorable cottage built in 1940's has a lot of character and is well maintained. Super cozy living room has a fireplace and beautiful overhead beams. A small kitchen with full-size range was all we needed. The bathroom was plenty big and updated. There was extra space for seating, eating and washing clothes on the sunporch (with a very nice view). With the owners being next door they were very helpful answering questions. The cottage will sleep four, but we found it the perfect size for the two of us.
