Best of the Best

  • 5 of 5

Everything was prepared for our arrival, which made it especially gracious. The car trip to Ellicott City took us longer than expected so when we got to our rental it was ready for us to hit the sack with no glitches.

The cottage was everything we expected from the advertising! There were some super additions like the great neighbors we met while on walks. Our hosts were very helpful, and I snagged more than my share of homemade muffins.

We took advantage of the covered porch out back with breakfasts and snack times. It was like being off the grid among the trees, with all of the conveniences.

The location was perfect. Close to historic Ellicott City and surrounding attractions. We found some great places to eat and a terrific Korean bakery with incredible Pastries.

OK, I gained a few pounds but I am working it off.

We loved the experience and will be back when we come to visit relatives again. Next time we will take one of the Patuxent River hiking trips.

Keep up the great work Dave and Jenn

Best personal regards,

Cozy,quiet getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

Came for our 5th Anniversary from Ohio and to attend a concert in Columbia. David and his wife were amazing hosts! Great communication through the whole process! The cottage is so cool and is in a very quiet neighborhood! Morning muffins were an added delicious bonus! I forgot my toiletries bag and they are mailing it back to me. Very kind hosts and we will definitely stay again! Thanks again for the hospitality!

Great property to relax and enjoy!

  • 5 of 5

The property is cute and quite! We loved relaxing, even though we had plans around a town not far from the cottage. Loved the fresh muffins Jen left for us and the great communication from Dave. Thank you!

Wonderful Weekend in Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My daughters and I traveled to Maryland to attend my dad's 80th birthday celebration, and decided to stay in Dave and Jen's cute "blacksmith shop" cottage. The space was cozy, just perfect for the four of us. Jen provided some yummy fresh-baked muffins. The beds were comfortable, there were fresh beans to grind for our morning coffee. We can't wait to return!
