This is a great little cottage to stay in if you enjoy being close to the city yet having the quietness of the country. I heard two barn owls hooting the 3rd night we were there that was one of the highlights of my stay.
It's located right by many great hiking trails, easy to just take off into the mountains in the morning and then hang out in the suburbs or the beach for the rest of the day.
Kathy, the owner, was kind enough to drive my sister and I around to show us where some other hiking trails were located. She was very responsive to needs and requests that we had.
Great place for getting away in the middle of it all!
