The house is wonderful...location not what I expected. Maps of the area would be great...it was cold and the property manager never told us how to turn on the gas (propane) heaters.

About the neighbourhood
The cottage is situated on a gentle slope overlooking northern end of Lake Patzcuaro on the outskirt of the historic town of Tzintzuntzan, (tsin-tsun-tsan) within walking distance to the center of the town and 15-20 minutes to Patzcuaro, 45 minutes to Morelia, state capitol. This is an ideal place to stay and relax and to use as a home base to explore the many nearby attractions. At the end of the day, return home to the tranquility of the country setting.
Getting around
Your own vehicle or a rented vehicle is recommended. However, ;public transportation is available: buses and co-op mini buses, as well as abundant and inexpensive taxi service. You can walk from the cottage to the center of town.
Car advised
How to get there
Property is just outside of town, but within walking distance to the town's center. Road to the house is not yet on the town map and the road name and house number is not known to taxis. Will require the property manager, who lives offsite, to show guests the way. Upon confirmation of booking, Trip Advisor will release e-mail to property owner, who will in turn send an e-mail to the guest(s) as well as property manager with contact information so that arrangements can be made for the property manager and the guests to meet at a predetermined date, hour and place to show the guests the way to the cottage.
