                                                                We enjoyed our 4 day stay in your home. Everything was clean, well-equipped and the floor plan was open with many windows. My husband and I came with our son and his girlfriend. The only criticism was the first bedroom with the bunk beds does not have very comfortable beds and may have plastic protection sheets on them. Really don't work for adults. They might be ok for small children. They moved to the back bedroom with the twin beds and that worked fine for them. Our bedroom was comfortable and spacious. It's a great location in Ephraim! We would enjoy coming back in the future.

                                                                I'm glad your family enjoyed your vacation at our cozy cottage.

                                                                Bunk beds feel a bit different because they don't have a boxspring. The foot board may make them feel shorter even-though they are standard twins. All of our beds have the same top end Verlo mattress covers for your comfort.

                                                                Enjoy your winter and we hope to see you again next summer or fall.

                                                                Comfortable, clean and quiet.

                                                                Everything was great.

                                                                The grates on the gas grill need to be replaced. Rust could not be removed. I spent a lot of time trying.

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                Glad you enjoyed the cottage.

                                                                This cozy cottage is certainly cozy!

                                                                This house was perfect for my family of 6. All the rooms are spacious and love the number of windows all throughout the house. The early part of our week, we kept the windows open for a most welcomed fresh air and sunshine!! The attention to detail was greatly appreciated! The kitchen was well stocked with gadgets, pots, pans, plates, bowls, etc.. The bathrooms were well supplied and loved the Homedics device with soothing natural sounds in the bedrooms! Looking forward to plan our next trip and to stay at the Cozy Cottage!
