We stayed here for our one-year anniversary and had such a sweet, relaxing time together. It was in the high 90s that weekend, but they already had the a/c on for us, cooling the cabin down. We were met with the same consideration the next day when we came back from a sweltering bike tour - the a/c turned on and a cool cabin waiting for us. The four-poster bed is a little elegance out of place from the shabby-chic quality of the rest of the place, but I loved that incongruity. It was such a comfortable comfortable bed for some very stressed out people looking for a relaxing weekend. We were delighted to find we could walk to the center of town so quickly, and then retreat to our rustic little hideaway at the end of the night. White Christmas lights ring the porch, leaving such a romantic glow to come home to. We loved peeking out the window in the morning to see the breakfast basket on the porch, and then fetching it to eat the simple but wholesome breakfast in bed. SO relaxing. It was too hot to use the fireplace, unfortunately, but they made sure we had a little starter log available even if we wanted to go for it anyway! It's not a 5-star resort, but it's also not plasticky/cookie cuttery. It's a lovely, relaxing place to stay.
I asked Rebecca about the bed bug review before we made reservations, and she was quick to assure me that they are regularly inspected and always pass inspection. That review almost deterred us from coming here, so I just wanted to point out that the cottage was cleanly and there was no sign of any pests. I could only imagine that the reviewer had been eaten alive by mosquitos on the porch, perhaps, but who can help that?! This was a really charming place to stay, and I highly recommend it.
