Beautiful and Peaceful Setting.
We stayed at this little cottage for the weekend. This is the cutest and absolutely cleanest houses we have ever rented. The decor and appliance are all up to date. Kitchen well stocked and bathrooms also. The owners are so nice and helpful. Can't say enough about this place.
