The guest cottage is in a beautiful, romantic and private setting. Enjoy this elegant and secluded guest cottage on a lovely 2 1/4 are property located on a private point fewer than 75 feet from the pristine Piankatank River. Delightful as a romantic getaway for two. Watch beautiful sunrises over the water and sip a glass of wine on the pier while the sun sets.
