We thought the house was great and, amazingly, there was snow on the ground, which was what we hoped for! We loved hearing the brook when we were outside. We need to come back in the summer to appreciate it with the windows open. Everything was clean and neat. The loft bed was great. The pull-out trundle worked for two people, but there is very little room to get around with it pulled out. (It is called a small room, and it is!). We loved the fireplace and used it a lot. We found we had to buy more firewood, because what was provided did not last even one day. Admittedly, we spent a lot of time in the house and used the fireplace during most of our waking hours, so we weren't surprised. We cooked all of our meals in the kitchen, bringing some of our own equipment, but the basics were there and very much appreciated. We missed having a table to sit and eat at, but we found the large ottoman, when protected by placemats, worked ok to sit around and eat at. We loved walking up the road and trail to the waterfall. We would highly recommend this cottage, and hope to come back in the other seasons. Thank you!
