Great get away spot!

  • 5 of 5

This is a clean, comfortable, well maintained cottage. The location is ideal. It would be crowded with more than 2 adults. The owners are super! We repeat year after year. I would highly recommend to couple who wants a quiet get away.

Cozy Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This place was great! It was very cozy, clean, and comfortable. It's just what we were looking for, a "home away" from home! The owners were especially accommodating, getting us whatever we needed and allowing us our privacy. We plan on returning again soon since the town was so cute and cultural, and our stay was so pleasant.

Very clean. The location is not directly on the river as it looks in the pictures. They do not have canoe paddles, bring your own if you want to canoe. This is not the place if you are looking for a getaway experience...owners live only 15 feet from carriage house and placed several phone calls and check in's during our stay.
