“Nice and comfortable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 December 2013 for a stay in December 2013

Janet was a very friendly host.
The cottage was nice and comfortable, if a little old, we like that it is self-contained in a garden setting and the kitchen was well equipped enough for us to have prepare breakfast and dinners.
It's a pity that the Wi-Fi connection from the main house was almost non-existent, not a big deal if you do not need wi-fi (but my kids who were of the iPad generation would have liked to have Wi-Fi). The cottage is not near the city centre and it's about 20 mins drive (some parts of the road are meandering.

Overall, we had a pretty good and quiet 2 nights' stay and would recommend it if you do not mind that it is not near the city centre.

Thank you, Madelyn. The Wi-Fi system has been improved and now operates independently in the cottage so there are no more problems with that and my guests are happy to have good, reliable reception now.
It was a pity that it was raining so much when you were here. Everything looks much better in the sunshine! Regards, Janice and Emanuel.

“Great vacation rental!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

The cottage was cute and clean and has all of the modern amenities you could want. The owner, Janice, was super friendly and you can tell she and her husband take a lot of pride in their property and everything is very well maintained. The landscaping on the property is especially beautiful and it's a great location right by the waterway. I highly recommend this property!

Thank you for your comments. The windmill is being repaired and should be turning again soon. The cottage is a cosy affordable holiday retreat where people can relax in a peaceful rural setting by a tranquil river rather than in a motel or 5 star hotel in the city.
