Guestbook comments from the owner
Just wanted to say we really enjoyed your cottage and we could not have asked for better weather. We knew that week was risky and might have been cold when we booked it, so we were really appreciative of the great weather. Our vacation was very enjoyable and restful. Thanks for all the helpful info you provided. We are happy that you choose to rent out your cottage. We also enjoyed meeting Sandy as she was arriving just as we were leaving.
We would definitely rent from you again. Have a great summer.
