For our anniversary, my husband and I only had a few "musts" in choosing our long weekend destination- scenic, secluded, a fireplace, and dog friendly. This location hit each one of those needs on the nose!
The owners went out of their way to ensure that guests of the cottage were provided with all the amenities necessary to make the stay enjoyable. Not only was the property clean, it was well stocked with binders of information (on nearby historic sites, restaurants, and grocery stores), books, kitchen goods, and linens. My husband and I did not arrive until late on our first night and were pleasantly surprised to find a voicemail from the owners on the answering machine welcoming us to the cottage and letting us know that they were available if we needed anything. It is gestures like that that make you want to return again and again!
Finally, I cannot express enough how wonderful this location is for dogs and their owners. As city dwellers, it is wonderful to stay in a location that is so welcoming to dogs. My husband and I found great joy in having our morning coffee outside while watching our golden retrievers happily bound through the snow only running back to the cottage for treats and the occasional pat on the head- luckily we have the pictures to remember it all by!
