The swiss cottage was definitely a wonderful place to stay and get away.
Let me start with my small ‘not-so-good’ things and finish with ALL of the good things that this house has to offer. The pictures that are posted are a bit deceiving in that you can’t tell that you are relatively close to other houses. Normally when we get away, we try to stay as far from people as we can get. That being said, we didn’t really 'see' folks and the views from the cottage were spectacular... My only other complaint would be that the water is well water, so it has a ‘sulphur’ smell… Even though you could probably drink it, with the egg smell, you don’t really want to. They left a few bottles of water in the frig which was good (for coffee), but had we known before we got to the house, we would have brought more bottled water for our dogs – we think the water didn’t set well with one of them.
So, now all of the good things… The furniture was super cozy and nice to lay around on… the bed linens –pillows and sheets--were magnificent, I was trying to find the brand, so I could get some when I got home. The sun setting in the gap of the mountains was superb and the STARS-- wowsa, you can't even begin to imagine… Our dogs LOVED running around in all that space.. we, too, enjoyed walking around the space –the little stream that ran down the side, the bridge to cross over—it was all very nice.
FINALLY, I locked the door to leave on the final morning and left my cell phone inside. One of the ‘neighbors’ was nice enough to allow me to use her landline to call the owner, Bob, who met us at the house in 10 mins to let me in to get my phone… now THAT is service! We would definitely stay here again…I would have given 4.5 stars because of the water, but with the service that Bob provided in getting to us quickly, I have to make it a 5-star stay.. Thank you!!
