This was such a great getaway and tucked in the woods but very close to town house was extremely clean and we also had the pleasure of watching owls land right in the back yard

This cottage was so adorable! Secluded enough to really feel you’re in the forest but super close to restaurants and grocery stores. There was a very thoughtful binder full of ideas for things to do and places to go. All around a great place to stay.

The cottage is such a sweet place. I loved my stay there, it’s quiet and very peaceful. It’s very secluded, surrounded by nature and woods. And very, very private. Mandeja is a wonderful host and I hope to stay there again someday. She even gave me a referral for a great massage.
