We arrived after work and were very pleased with the cottage. The pictures are very accurate. It was very clean. We spent the evening relaxing and watching TV before spending some time on the screened in porch. It rained on Saturday morning, but we were quite content to relax and watch the birds enjoying the berries right off the deck. The welcome book provided lots of good information. When our daughter and her hubby arrived, we sent the guys to get carryout from one of the local restaurants. It was great. Although it was chilly on the porch Saturday night, we had a good time especially with the special lighting. It was over too quickly, but we sure appreciated the noon checkout time. Thanks for sharing your cottage with us!
