Great place for a Writer's Retreat

My friend and I are both aspiring writers who needed a weekend away to just write.

This cabin was perfect. There was more than enough space for two people. In late March there was still snow on the ground and it was a bit too chilly to spend the entire day on the back porch. I managed to squeeze in a couple of hours lounging outside before retreating into the house.

The only downside is the shower. The shower is a bit on the small side. I'm 5'7 and of average build and I find moving around in it a bit tight. If the shower head could be adjusted and could be moved around, I *think* would definitely help.

Unfortunately, we had to cut our trip short by a day because of an impending snow/rain storm heading our way. The owners were great about it. In lieu of a refund, they comped us one day for a future stay which is great because I'd love to go back when its warmer.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your suggestions about improving the cottage shower. After your review I got into the shower myself to see what the issue might be. The shower head is over 8 feet high and is adjustable so I don't think that is the problem. The shower circumference is a little tight due to the size of the bathroom we had to work with when renovating this historic cottage. I removed the shampoo/soap holder that hung on the shower head and that has increased the "wiggle room" quite a bit. I hope that helps you during your next visit.

Second time we have stayed. We love this cottage and its location. Bathroom is the only downside - looks great, but has some practicality issues. Certainly not a deal-breaker. Would recommend!

Absolutely Stunning!

My husband, myself and our 3 year old son rented this cottage for the weekend. We are very familiar with the area having owned a home in the area ourselves-so the location was perfect. The pictures on the site do not do this home justice. This cottage is GORGEOUS...GORGEOUS...GORGEOUS!! It is a wonderful place to stay to "get away". Listening to the river, sitting by the fire, what a great way to spend a weekend. We have rented several houses through HomeAway and this one is the absolute best. Would LOVE to stay here again. Would recommend this property 1000%.
