Listen to the rain on the tin roof or relax and meditate by moss covered rocks and a gentle brook. Have breakfast on the screened porch off kitchen and dining situated over the tranquil brook and massive rhododendrons gardens.
Handsome library with games and books.
Property with 150' trees surrounding a large garden and flat area conducive to outdoor games. Stroll the vegetable and flower gardens or sit by the pond.
If the hot tub is not functioning due to mechanical failure, we cannot give refunds or credits. We maintain our spa but sometimes things happen that cannot be avoided. We will try to repair the spa as soon as possible but this is very difficult on a weekend. A functioning hot tub is not a condition of the rental. We will do everything we can to insure you a great vacation.
If this property is not available, we have two other absolutely wonderful cottages:
VRBO 376856 and VRBO 184869
