5/5 Excellent

This cottage was for me and my sister. We absolutely loved the decor and location. The owners go to a lot of trouble to put small things that will make you comfortable. Their communication was great and it was so nice having them right next door. We HIGHLY recommend this little cottage. It’s the perfect location.
