“Relaxation at the Hidden Cottage”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2007

My husband and I needed a quick relaxing get-away, and the Hidden Cottage was perfect!

What we loved:
-Wonderful six-person jacuzi hot tub in a beautiful 4 season sunroom
-The sunroom was sunny with 4 skylights and 3 walls of tinted (for privacy) windows.
-The sunroom also doubled as a garden with dozens of potted plants, giving it a tropical feel.
-The kitchen was fully stocked - eggs, milk, cheese, yougurt, popcorn, muffins, 5 varieties of cerial, crackers, cookies, tons of fresh fruit, etc.
-The master bedroom overlooks the sunroom and was a pleasure to wake up in.
-The proprieters were very helpful, friendly, and considerate, leaving lists of local restaurants and directions in the cottage.
-The privacy that the cottage allowed, which wouldn't be possible at a hotel.
-For $130 it was the best price for the value in Springfield that I could find for a relaxing suite.

Drawbacks:
-Personally I didn't mind, but don't stay here if you want top of the line, modern furnishings. The place has a cozy, slightly seventies, slightly country feel.
-Again, I didn't mind, but the neighborhood wasn't top of the line either. Functional and lower middle class.
-Leap of faith - the website's photos don't adequately show the charm of the place, so it is hard to know what you're getting into. I am truly glad that I made the leap of faith though, which is why I am writing this up, hopefully I will help at least one person who is sadly in need of a decompressing weekend.
