About

NATURE at your doorstep: On our property we have deer, (we have a doe that usually beds down with her fawns under the cedars just outside your living room window), raccoons, opossums, fox, the occasional skunk and there is a trail that the nutria take from the wetlands area between the cottage and the golf course that ends in your front yard. The frogs will serenade you in the evening during certain times of the year and the stars are bright.

Birds of all colors and sizes are plentiful, from hummingbirds to Canadian geese. We have hawks, falcons, wild turkeys, finches, grosbeaks, and more, depending on the season.

AMENITIES: Free Gigabit Internet access, streaming channels through the Roku player, refrigerator (apartment-sized, not tiny), toaster, microwave, induction cook top with all pots, pans and utensils. Nu-Wave oven, toaster oven, single serve Keurig-style coffee maker.

DECOR: The cottage was built with a very country / farmhouse style. It has Dutch doors, reclaimed gymnasium hardwood floors throughout, and vaulted ceilings. There are cool stories behind everything inside.

SLEEPING arrangements: The cottage is ideal for 1 or 2 guests (a couple) as there is only one queen bed. However, up to 4 guests are welcome if you don't mind the full-size sofa sleeper.
