This was our first homeaway experience so I was a little apprehensive about checking out with Michael off the homeaway site. Let me assure you! He's friendly, honest, available when needed, and also hands off for a totally private country retreat experience. (He has a very friendly mind his own business maintenance man that we saw only twice the whole time who came to add firewood to the outside pile). Also full deposit immediately refunded day of checkout.
We are a young family of boys and my kids loved the pond, jumping off the raft (bring life jackets or floaties for kids for extra peace of mind), and kite flying in the fields. There are great woods as well so bring some long pants and bug spray for exploring too. Cottage has a great eat in kitchen, 2 bedrooms for privacy for adults and an open spacious immaculate hardwood loft that goes across the whole length of the cottage, great for indoor games or to put the kids to bed in sleeping bags etc. We also roasted marshmallows in the fire pit and ate right in front of the house on a picnic table. Great peaceful country cottage experience that makes you feel connected to nature and the great outdoors. Walmart and shoprite close by for last minute stuff and civilization. Great and relaxing time for us all! Looking forward to returning!!
