From the time we arrived until the time we had to leave, it was awesome. The cottage is extremely comfortable and well equipped. We saw two eagles at eye level, the closest we had ever seen, and watched as they went down to grab a fish from the river. The blue heron also made an appearance as he too was looking for breakfast. Unfortunately they are camera shy. It was soothing, it was totally relaxing and even enjoyed the trains after the first one, remembering what it was like many years ago. My husband and I got to enjoy the owner's company for a bit and soon realized that he is a wonderful gentle man, who is hospitable and assures your every need. We look forward to seeing him again. Thank You Dick for sharing your piece of paradise with us and we look forward to you coming to visit our home soon.
