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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Another Fantastic Stay

The cottage has become my home away from home while in Anaheim. Everything was perfect once again! Thank you for a wonderful experience and for having all of those roses in bloom just for me! :-)

Peggy andJack offer a beautiful cottage with everything needed for a wonderful stay! The cottage is clean, cozy and well stocked. We loved sitting outside on the porch enjoying the Disney fireworks on our first evening there. We would definitely stay again!

Big city oasis

  • 5 of 5

I have used VRBO/Home Away numerous times and have been consistently impressed. This cottage was absolutley perfect. Quiet, clean, cozy with all the amenities needed for a relaxing get away. The neighborhood is very clean and has a safe feeling. We were two ladies traveling and having Jack and Peggy just next door added to the secure feeling along with well lighted off street parking. Not to speak of the proximity to Disneyland and several nice restaurants within a very short drive or walk. It was unfortunate that we left our "cook" at home because this cottage has a beautiful kitchen. I also enjoyed the front porch and Jacks lovely garden. For a small family or couple you can't beat this cottage.

Great property at a great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time in our first family trip to California. Peggy and Jack are very organized and helped us with the questions that we had. The cottage is very clean and well equipped. The setting is very peaceful and the location is central to many attractions. The Wadie family.
