My wife and I have been married for five years. Between our children and my career.... Getting away has not been an option. My mother in law offered to babysit and my wife and I finally took her up on the offer.
We did not have much time to research our accommodations. Based on reviews that we read, we elected to try out Cathy's Cottages. We did not have reservations and were hoping that there would be a vacancy.
We drove up and very easily found the office at the other location where you check in. The person who checked us in was very friendly and genuinely cared about making sure it was a special stay for us. He gave us a great deal and even a bottle of sparkling apple cider....
We made the short drive to the actual cottages. The grounds were clean and well maintained. The neighborhood was comfortable with a very casual feel. There is a circle k on the corner which was good to know in case we forgot anything.
We stayed in room 225. We walked in and were immediately excited. The jacuzzi tub is right as you walk in....the bed was King sized... There was a cute mini fridge and microwave.... The shower was nice sized with two shower heads. The room was very clean and well maintained. There was a large variety pack of toiletries waiting in the bathroom. The bathroom had a heat lamp that made the whole bathroom red.... The fireplace ran on gas....no firewood required. The bed was very comfortable.
To sum it all up... We were very impressed and are planning to go back in a few weeks.... The staff did an excellent job in making sure that our stay( albeit a very short one) was a very memorable one. My wife and I really needed this escape from reality... I highly recommend Cathy's cottages to anyone looking to leave the world below for a while.
