The park is within 10 minutes of the cottage. If you bring your bicycle you would enjoy exploring here.
Hoot and I live in the 1700's house on the property where the cottage is located. We enjoy having interesting and fun people come from all over the US, Canada, England, and this month... Spain.
Everyone has the same reaction to the cottage. They are instantly charmed and promptly in love with our village. They all rave about how incredibly convenient we are to so many things.... and many enjoy their morning walk to the cafe for coffee and a muffin.
It's great to have a convenient, clean, quiet, and private spot to call your own when you are travelling. No need to go out in the morning. Enjoy coffee on the porch... work at home on our speedy internet access. We've travelled a lot so we created this home away as we would choose find when we travel.
