Lovely, charming cottage

  • 5 of 5

We are already planning a return visit next summer because we found Grace Cottage to be so wonderful for our family. Evening strolls through the State park (cottage is nestled right in the midst of the park) were so peaceful. The layout of the house is great for allowing everyone to have some space when needed but gather together for family time too. Josh & Jaimie were wonderful to answer any questions and provided a fabulous welcome which included incredible homemade cinnamon rolls. There was nothing we needed that we did not find in kitchen, bath, etc. We choose VRBO often and this is a stay that I highly recommend.

Wonderful family home

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in the Grace Cottage and will definitely return.

The house is peaceful and pleasant with all the comforts of home. The town of Washington is a wonderful place to rest and rejuvenate ones spirit. Grace Cottage is the perfect retreat nestled away in this quiet town. A tall glass of cold Lemonade or southern sweet tea sitting on the porch swing is simply heaven. Our family now shares memories and a sense of nostalgia for this place and we are already making plans to return.
