5/5 Excellent

    Great place!

    Karen has an amazing property, perfect for a weekend getaway. The place has everything you need, and Karen makes it so that you really don't need anything except the clothes on your back. She is extremely accommodating. Thanks, Karen!

    5/5 Excellent

      Karen's attention to detail was evident everywhere we looked. As a host, she was responsive and warm

      The location of this cottage was PERFECT for our needs....private, yet close to everything- groceries and an excellent Italian restaurant, sophisticated, yet with that hometown feeling. Karen was a knowledgeable host and kindly worked with us when our departure date was a tad fluid. My fellow travelers had never heard of VRBO and were so impressed. The only suggestions we would make are to place a trash basket upstairs, keep some ice cubes in the freezer and a tissue box on each floor. That’s it; Karen thought of EVERYTHING else. Our event is an annual one and if we can, we WILL be visiting Karen’s beautifully appointed cottage in 2020!

        Loved it!

        A beautiful place to stay!

        5/5 Excellent

          I came down to the area for a powerlifting meet. Walking in I knew I could get a good night's rest.

          The first thing that struck me was how the owner page such attention to details. From beautiful well thought out decor, having any little odd or end you might need, to the cleanliness. I don’t always sleep well at in unfamiliar places. Let alone with pre-competition nerves. I had the most rejuvenating nights sleep. Comfort and peace illuminated the place. The chalkboard wall was the coolest thing. I enjoyed seeing notes and artwork from previous visitors. Sticky notes were placed throughout the house with instructions. I found this cute and practical. The owner was always was quick to respond if any questions arose. I would recommend this place to anyone!

          • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

          Very comfortable. Like the character of decor. Good communication. We would recommend two things. One, warn people there is no microwave. We assumed there was and planned our breakfast using one (some diet issues). It never occurred to us that there wouldn't be one in a contemporary kitchen. Second, we would also remind guests that the bathroom is not on the same level as the sleeping area. With some medication issues overnight we had to adjust. It all worked out well but some warning would have helped.
