We spent four nights at the Cottage, which is actually a small, cute house about 2 blocks from the main motel complex. There were just two of us, but the house sleeps six. Two bedrooms (one with a double bunk bed), living room (with futon), large kitchen, full bath. Big, fluffy towels. Not a whole lot on TV (just a few channels), but great WiFi connection and a DVD player makes up for that. The grocery store in town has a good selection of DVD's for rent. A laundromat is nearby at an RV park.
The Cottage is a remodeled house from the 1920's, tastefully furnished with antiques and cute kitschy items. The stove is intimidating at first, but then you see that they've supplied a microwave and toaster oven and 2-burner grill. The stove is just for show, the best antique in the place. There's a BBQ grill on the patio for guests' use.
To see the Cottage from the outside, you'd never guess how spacious it is inside. This is a housekeeping cottage, which means you don't have someone coming in every day to make the beds or change the towels.If you need anything, you have only to ask the Circle D manager (Robert) and he is ready and willing to help. We were delighted to find a stack of guidebooks and brochures to help with our exploration of the area. The "Easy Day Hikes" was the perfect reference for our needs.
