Smooth check in process. No issues.
Perfect size house for a family. Loved the Adirondack style of furnishings. Beds were comfortable and everything seemed brand new. Really appreciated the landscape lighting when arriving back to the house after dark.

The location and decoration were great, but it is the property owner's personal attention that made the trip memorable and should recommend this cottage to others.
