    2 - Mediocre
    1 - Poor

    4/5 Good


      This cottage was adequate for our needs. The property was clean and Susan and Emily were prompt and informative. The pictures of the location give a better impression however than the actual property. There is enough furniture but they lack any extras. There is no coffee table or end tables so sitting and relaxing with a cup of coffee is a challenge. Although there is Wifi the service is poor. There is no cable TV although it is a smart TV. Netflix is available as well as Sling TV but do to poor Wifi watching anything is a challenge unless you enjoy the buffering. The parking is also very limited, on street parking only, no driveway. There are several residence that also use what would be assumed was parking for this cottage. We had a full size truck and had a difficult time getting it off the street. This property has potential and I would not say we would not use it again. As I said it was adequate for our needs.

      4/5 Good

        Six week stay to visit family and friends

        Our 6 week stay was fine. The owners Susan and Emily couldn’t have been more helpful. I brought my 2 dogs and unfortunately that added a little stress. Susan allowed me to put up a temporary fence so I could keep my dogs from wandering around the property and separated from her 4 dogs. It all worked out. The neighborhood is great and was close to our many friends and family.

        5/5 Excellent

          This was. A beautiful getaway. The host made my visit very comfortable and relaxing. Really enjoyed

          Love love love this home.

          5/5 Excellent

            Amazing cottage weekend

            We had an amazing weekend at this cottage! It's a cozy place in a small area. It was nice and quiet and we were able to disconnect for the time and still be close to the town and see everything there. We had a great time!
