About Jack and Peggy

We (Jack and Peggy in the picture) love life and are living in the moment, as much as we can. Jack is retired and I am holding a full time job. We like to entertain and make our guests feel at home.

We love the outdoors, travel, hiking, camping, and we love our home's setting. It is where we can relax and enjoy the pleasures of nature.

Jack and Peggy purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Jack and Peggy chose Anaheim

How can you not fall in love with this cute and tranquil 1880 Cottage and the neighborhood. Therefore returning guests will get 10% off the nightly rate (remind me).

What makes this cottage unique

One unique benefit is that the guest cottage is so tranquil and has a positive energy flowing through. Our guests did pick up on that and are saying our homes have a 'heart' and that it does affect their state of mind in a good way.

The cottage has an open floorplan, a cozy corner, and a lovely veranda with two rocking chairs looking out on the roses. Next to the guest cottage is another seating area with a fire pit and a two seat swing canopy (not a swing for children), which we invite our guest to use and enjoy.

The Crafthome and the guest cottage are located on a corner, which gives us some privacy, and a perfect place to entertain people. We are growing our own vegetables, fruit, and flowers we love.

You have to see and experience this place of paradise, our Peace of Inspiration cottage, then you will see and feel what I am talking about.

This cottage is perfect for couples.

Excellent experience!

  • 5 of 5

This charming cottage was everything advertised and more. Our hosts, the owners of the property, were incredibly accommodating and a most hospitable couple. The comfort of the space, the proximity to Disneyland and other Southern California attractions, and the well-maintained and beautifully appointed space made it a wonderful stay. I would highly recommend this property to anyone and have been spreading the good word to my friends!

Heavenly Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was just as described. It was clean and a peaceful getaway after a long day in California traffic. It had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. Jack and Peggy were great to work with. We enjoyed our time away and the landscaping around the cottage was beautiful and inviting. We would definitely recommend this cottage if you are looking.

Great Guest Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We really liked staying at Jack & Peggy's historic guest cottage! It was very clean and seemed to be in perfect condition. We spent three days at Disney/California Adventure and it was so nice to come back to the cottage after a fun-filled day and be able to cook, relax and then get a great night's sleep. If we can visit again, we'd like to stay at the cottage and spend more time exploring Anaheim. Have a great summer, Jack & Peggy!

The Perfect Place for an Enjoyable, Relaxing, Peaceful, and Fun Time Away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

This Historic 1880 Guest Cottage is as nice as it is depicted in the photographs on VRBO. It is clean and very well maintained and in a safe neighborhood. We were impressed with how quiet it was for being so close to Anaheim Blvd. Even though Disneyland was not included in the events of this trip, it is very close to the neighborhood where the cottage is located. One of our favorite places was the Packing District which is in walking distance of the cottage. The Packing District is like a very upscale food court with live music on most evenings. Being older women, we were somewhat out of place among the younger crowd, but we always enjoyed the time we spent there.

Jack and Peggy are a delightful couple. Unfortunately, due to our schedule and Peggy's busy schedule, we did not even meet her until the day we were leaving. It was disappointing that we did not get to spend more time getting to know her. Jack and Peggy are very unintrusive and considerate, but always available to answer questions or take care of anything we needed.

We would highly recommend this property as an excellent choice for a place to stay whenever you are in the Aneheim area. We feel fortunate that it was available during the dates we needed to be there. Thank you Jack and Peggy for all the work you put into making strangers feel at home and treating them as friends. Hopefully, we'll be back someday!!

Hugs,

Alane and Deb from Sparks, NV

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

This cozy, quaint cottage served as a great home base for LA/Disneyland trip. Cottage was on a quiet street. Grounds were beautiful, very calming to sit on the front porch and enjoy a snack and watch the cute little hummingbird flit around. Location was perfect. Close to Disneyland, restaurants and quick and easy access to freeway to head into LA/Hollywood area or south towards the beach. LOVED staying here and will stay here again. CLEAN, quiet and cozy. Jack & Peggy were extremely pleasant and helpful when setting up the reservations, too. :)
