Creekside Retreat
My wife and I celebrated our 11th anniversary at this delightful cottage. The Stutzmans arranged a copious amount of rain to serenade us during our stay. It was perfect. A husky squirrel, hummingbirds, and a pair of cardinals danced for us right outside the large glass door. Everything was lovely inside and out, with a well-appointed kitchen and plenty of room for lounging and resting. We slept often and well in the comfy king bed. It was perfect for what our souls needed.

Amazing Getaway in the Woods
This place was such a gem. The cottage is immaculate and very stylish. The nature surrounding is breathtaking and very peaceful. There's a bird feeder in front of the sliding door that allows you to watch the nature come and go. My husband and I were able to unplug and enjoy without any worries. We'll definitely be back! :D
