We stayed 3 nights and the host was very good at recommending places to visit. Our experiences as a result were fantastic. Room was clean well furnished would have no hesitation in recommending for any one. As there was another room available we also met 3 other guests from other countries who only stayed 1 night each. All in all....brilliant

“What a Welcome”
Reviewed 19 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We were lucky to find Marilyn's. The welcome is fantastic, the place is beautiful and you'd be hard pressed to beat this for a place to stay near Mont St Michel. It's close to the Mont but away from the crowds in the pretty hamlet of Ardevon. It was like dropping in on an old friend; a welcome drink & joining in with other visitors around the table in the lovely garden.

Breakfast was superb. A cut above the normal French morning fare.The peaches were fresh from the tree and the jam was home made. It makes for a great start for the day

You can drive or walk to the Mont from the house. Marilyn has been known to give lifts to her more needy guests, but has bikes on site if you need them. We biked to the Mont because we're too lazy to walk and you can cycle across the causeway.

I'd stay again in a heartbeat.

My advice: book early to avoid disappointment there are only two lovely rooms.

Also, the area of Mont st Michel has a few mossies in late summer so bring some insect repellent

We stayed with Marilyn for only one night (very sad!) at the end of November. Her home is so lovely, warm, and inviting! She made wonderful dinner recommendations for us, especially considering we arrived pretty late and very hungry. The next morning she prepared the most lovely breakfast spread for us that even included homemade jams made with berries from trees in the backyard! Marilyn had bikes that were available for guests to use to bike around town or to Mont Saint Michel (which is only about 2 miles from her home), which would have been a fantastic way to explore had we been there during a warmer season. Marilyn helped us map out some places to visit in Normandy and overall was just an amazing host. We would definitely recommend a stay with Marilyn!

Liked best: The cottage has such an authentic french countryside feel from the location, and the home is so beautifully updated and cozy!
Liked least: The location is a little bit tricky to locate.

We so enjoyed Marylyn and her charming and very comfortable stone cottage. Marilyn could not have been more helpful with directions and information about the things to see and do In Normandy. I felt like we were staying with an old friend. Her warmth and hospitality are as impressive as her beautifully restores cottage. WOnderful experience in so many ways. Thank you Marilyn!
