About Margaret Barnes

I am hoping you find this cozy cottage enables you to relax and enjoy the beauty here in Southern Oregon
Margaret Barnes purchased this Cottage in 2016

Beauty and the beast of life's un-expectancies
We have been to this wonderful cottage last year and returned to it this year because it offers all that we want - a full kitchen so we can cook for our special needs, wonderful living spaces with comfort and care at every turn and close proximity to the Britt Festival and an owner who is responsive and truly cares about your experience! When we arrived this year we were greeted with a horrid smell upon entrance! The air conditioner was working away as it was over 90+ degrees outside and the smell was most strong coming out of the vents. I text the owner Margaret , and she came right over. We opened all the windows and doors of the house and decided to turn off the air conditioner. I eventually added rubber floor mat covers to the three floor vents, to control any smell intrusion. We were able to get the smell down enough to live and sleep (though my husband was more sensitive than I to the residual smell). We talked more with Margaret the next day about our concern for a friend that was to arrive that night and sleep on the sofa - the room where the smell was strongest. Margaret had placed a call with her son, who came that afternoon and crawled under the house looking for the source of the smell - to find nothing - but all agreed the smell was strong and real. Margaret, good owner that she is, had just had the central air ducts all replaced earlier this year - and now it appeared a critter may have gotten into the system somehow and died - smelling up the place! The cottage is wonderful, minus such issues. Unfortunately, we had to sleep with the windows and secured screen doors open - which allowed the heavy street noise to intrude on our sleeping. Our friend complained about that the most - though the smell was very apparent when we joined her in the living area in the morning. Margaret offered to refund us fully if we wanted to go elsewhere - which we did not and finding a place during a sold out Britt concert would be impossible anyway! We stayed and do not regret it, though we did ask Margaret to give some compensation for the problem to us, which she agreed too. All in all, I would return to Standish Cottage in an instant, because it is so adorable and practical, the owner is resonsive and caring.
Second time staying here. Can walk to everything.
We had a wonderful stay at the Standish Cottage. 2 minute walk to Main Street & The Britt Amphitheater. Cozy cottage with everything you need for an enjoyable time. We visit Jacksonville frequently and will surely book this cottage again.
