Guestbook comments from the owner
Ann & Tony, Happy New Year! I just wanted to thank you for everything. We had a great time at the cottage and were impressed at the amenities in the house. As we hoped to relax a bit, we brought some wine and food and cooked feast after feast. We were surprised to find the kitchen so fully stocked. Thanks again. My Best,S. Gandhi
