Great location, beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Whippoorwhill Cottage. The house is nicely decorated and comfortable. We did a lot of cooking and the kitchen, though small, is well appointed. We loved the game room because we had a lot of rain and it gave us a place to gather and have fun. The beds were comfortable and the two main bedrooms were dark enough to sleep in. We put the kids in the daybed room because they are up early and it doesn’t have blinds.

The washer was broken but the owners were up front about it and tried hard to get a replacement out during our stay. The property manager also offered to have us wash clothes at her house.

Overall it’s a great house with beautiful views and a very nice owner and property manager. I highly recommend it.

Wonderful cottage with a beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is really nice and the view is better than the pictures. We had a wonderful stay and the place was very clean. They went out of their way to make sure the place was immediately useful and comfortable. They thought of many things to make the stay better from unbreakable wine glasses to spices and condiments. We would stay again and have already recommended it to our friends. You will not be disappointed.

Welcoming Home with Amazing Views

  • 5 of 5

Loved our weekend stay in the Whippoorwill Cottage. Unfortunately it was raining most of our stay so we couldn’t let our two year old run around in the large yard as we had hoped. But the interior was as comfortable as home to get some work wrapped up before heading to a friend’s wedding near by. Will have to return in the future.
