Gorgeous home and property!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was warmly and tastefully decorated, with attention to every detail! The beds and linens were high quality and ultra comfy, plenty of towels and toiletries were provided. The kitchen had everything we could have required, and we were pleasantly surprised to have a delicious assortment of coffee, tea, granola bars, snacks, and bottled water waiting for us as well. The owners were amazing; they graciously gave us a tour and history of the stunningly beautiful Manor House, and invited us to visit their horses, both which we all really enjoyed. We highly recommend this property and will definitely make plans to return.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful home, wonderful hosts! The cottage was the perfect place to spend a week reconnecting with family. We've rented properties from HomeAway for many years now and this one is our all-time favorite.

Excellent property, well kept, wonderful furnishings and everything is very clean and neat

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful week! This was our (6 members of our '65 high school graduating class) second annual visit to the cottage. What a great facility for us to "come home" to after a long day of hiking and other activities. Wonderful place to relax, drink wine, grill and just hang out. Cliff and Chris could not be nicer. We are looking forward to returning again next year!

Incredible Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing weekend! Every detail is tended to in this home and the property exceeded our expectations. Relaxing, comfortable, welcoming, and stunning inside! We spent a lot of time on the porch and huddled around the kitchen. Everyone in our family enjoyed it immensely! We will be back :)

Fabulous, relaxing and beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 6 college friends from the '60's, who get together once a year. The Vine Cottage was the BEST of our former 5 house rentals!! The house is very well stocked with everything you could need! The furnishings are beautiful and comfortable. You can tell that a lot of love and caring went into decorating the house. The hosts even supplied things like coffee pods, creamers, snacks, little shampoos and lotions! Cliff, the owner gave us a tour of his home and B&B...Inn at Forest Oaks, which is spectacular! He and Chris are so friendly and gracious! We all hated to leave after our 3 nights there! We will probably come back at some point, even though we said we would always have our gatherings at a different place each year! The Vine Cottage is PERFECT for groups of friends, couples or families! We had a wonderful time and made lots of great memories! Thank you Cliff and Chris for sharing the cottage and we hope to see you again sometime!!

Oh Vine Cottage, how we love thee!

  • 5 of 5

We love you from the moment we drive onto the grounds of the Inn at Forest Oaks. We are transported back in time with the tree-lined driveway making its way to the yellow Vine Cottage impeccably prepared for our retreating time there. Oh Vine Cottage, we love your amazing blend of elegance and comfort, helping us to feel very lucky to be there and very comfortable to be our self while we are there. Oh Vine Cottage, your spaciousness and your furnishings, your porch and your living spaces, your restful bedrooms - all have us in love with you and always eager to return. Take good care until we are back in April, 2018 for more.

And as always, a gigantic thanks to Cliff and Chris, the owners, for their deep hospitality and care of this amazing property we love so much.
