Fabulous stay at this secluded little cottage on a beautiful property. The backdrop is amazing and the private " Tiny Chapel" is just georgous. The friendly pet miniature donkeys on the property greeted us and were feed lots of apples and carrots. We will miss you Bud and Sasha! A big thanks goes out to property owners and agents for their wonderful service and hospitality! We will be back.
