This rental is for the ENTIRE COTTAGE!
Adorable 2 story, 1 bedroom/1 bathroom homes is not only unique, but includes all the comforts of a hotel but with the privacy of your own entire home. Perfect for 2 people, but can accommodate more. Free Wi-fi. Does not include a TV.
Main floor: Kitchen + futon couch that turns into a full-size bed.
Upstairs: Queen bed (with a pillow top mattress cover) + full bathroom.
The cottage is located on a residential area in a wooded area right outside Castlewood State Park. It is located on a private street on 3 lots so you'll have a lot of privacy but you're not far from others. It's fully updated with A/C and and heat (all electric). Includes all furnishings, fully stocked kitchen, coffee maker, microwave, all utilities, linens and towels. It's walking distance to Castlewood State Park, which has walking and biking paths, playgrounds, picnic/BBQ areas, and even a beach along the Meramac River (which you can walk, bike or drive to in minutes).
The house grounds are very private with neighbors on the street below. Includes a paved front yard patio on one side, perfect for relaxing and nature watching, and a small fire pit and bench on the other side.
The upstairs has a queen sized bed, two closets and a large bathroom with a full size tub and shower, sink and toilet, and ample storage. The windows are double-paned with a screen in between, allowing you to open them up to get the fresh air and hear the birds day and night.
Heat: base-floor heating
Air conditioning: Two window units (one upstairs and one downstairs).
It's very comfortable throughout the year, on all seasons. The rock foundation of the home keeps the house (at least the main floor) fairly cool naturally. There is also a ceiling fan upstairs for additional air circulation.
INCLUDES FREE high-speed internet and FREE WI-FI.
It is truly unique and different--you feel like you live far away from civilization although you're only a minute away from everything, including outlet shopping, stores, parks and restaurants only a few minutes away.
Available for an annual lease as well as short term rentals for a weekend getaway, including month-by-month, seasonal rentals and even holiday/vacation rentals and event rentals.
If you've ever wanted to get away without going far, this is it! And offered at a very reasonable price, priced well below area hotels. Please note that there is no washer/dryer or hook up (enjoy your stay at the house and leave the laundry for later).
No smoking anywhere in and on the property.
PLEASE NOTE: This is a very unique dwelling and experience. It is not your cookie cutter Hilton. The foundation of the home is 100+ years old, but of course, updated. The main floor flooring is a textured, stained concrete. This allows us to minimize issues associated with having a dwelling located in a wooded area. The upstairs has vinyl flooring. There are area rugs throughout the cottage. The windows are double-paned with a screen between them. Because it's located in the woods, there is going to be natural exposure to bugs. To minimize them coming into the house, please keep the screens down when you open the windows and make sure to keep the front door closed at all times and do not store any trash or food outside. There isn't trash service to the house.
The cottage has eclectic rustic appeal and is a charming place to rest after a long day. We appreciate the green lush surroundings and the relative closeness of many types of activity centers. We would certainly choose it again.
Thanks, Dennis & Gayle
My husband and I came to the area for a wedding and we stayed at this cottage for quiet time for just the two of us. It is tucked away into a hillside, serene, in a neighborhood surrounding by rolling hills. The cottage was clean, well-provisioned, and had everything we needed for a stay. The owner Caroline was very thoughtful and accommodating, and even mailed me some items I forgot. I hope to return, especially in the fall because I think the foliage would be lovely.
comfortable & clean
able to cook if you want - everything provided in the way of cookware and dishes
owner very responsive - checked on us by phone before our arrival as we were traveling in bad weather
replied to all questions and concerns
would stay here again
Enjoyable stay in this quaint little cottage. Peaceful. Although there is no yard there is a beautiful state park very close by. Parking arrangements are not to our liking.
We stayed at the cottage for two nights. It was very clean and comfortable. It has free wifi, but there is no television set. We had our son with us so we took card games to play, which was a lot of fun. The owners was wonderful. She emailed me after we booked with detailed check-in information. She sent another email with detailed directions to help us find the cabin a few days before our arrival (something we needed!) The cabin is literally tucked back into the woods. We travel often, and staying at the cabin was a nice break from hotel rooms.
We rented this cottage for an out of town wedding. There were three of us. It is an older home nestled into the side of a treed hill. It gives the feel of staying in a place from yester year. A shaded home with sun peeking in through the windows. Clean with basic amenities. Both the bed upstairs and futon were very comfortable. We slept very well. During our stay the weather outside was very hot, heat indexes up to 115. The air conditioning units, one up one down, seemed to have cooled the inside perfectly. Not too cold and not not enough. Having the sleeping arrangements up and down gave each party privacy. Caroline, the owner was very helpful with directions and having the cottage ready for us. A delight to work with.
