        Once again we stay at this charming cottage that never fails to deliver a warm and welcoming rest stop during our travels. Each time we stay we are reminded of the superb accommodations and attention to detail that are evident in all aspects. Hosts Carl and Louise are most gracious and responsive to any requests. The place was sparkling clean, and all the many amenities are much appreciated, making a visit comfortable and memorable. Highly recommend, and look forward to our next visit.
