Like stepping back in time...
Submitted: May 5, 2013
Stayed: April 2013
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this cottage, and we were sorry to leave. We felt so rested and rejuvenated by the time we left, it was hard to believe we had only been there for 3 nights. I thought it might have been so refreshing because not only did we feel like we were getting away from it all, but we also felt like we had stepped back in time. The house did remind me of my grandmother's house, except it had all the modern conveniences. It was the best of both worlds.
On our second night, a fierce storm rolled in that lasted most of the night. The winds were howling and rain was blowing against the house really hard, but the house was like a rock. That is one sturdy little house, and we felt very safe there.
Monica, the owner, was very gracious to us and was always just a phone call away. Because it got so cold during our stay, we wanted to light the fireplace, but we were having trouble doing so. Monica came over and got it going. The fire in the fireplace made things unbelievably cozy on such a cold day.
And I can't forget about the baked goods, all homemade. We even got homemade wild grape jelly for our biscuits. There was also banana bread and Panforte (I think that's what it's called). All was totally delish.
We enjoyed going to the "Peachtree Tea Room" for lunch, and we also went to the restaurant at "The Herb Farm". The Pioneer Museum was very interesting too. The town with all the shops and restaurants was only 10 or so minutes away.
We are city people and had never spent time in the open countryside. Before arriving, I didn't know what to expect or how I would like it, but I have to say this turned out to be one of my favorite vacations that I can remember.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind words. I am so glad your Mother-Daughter get away was so much fun. And you got to see and do so many different things. We even broke a historical record with that cool night when you were here. Come back soon, and welcome to Texas.
