We loved, loved, loved our stay at Canaan Cottage! William and his wife were great! We showed up earlier than check-in time, William came out and apologized our room wasn't ready. We were fine with that, we just wanted to make sure we could find the place and let him know we'd be back late. He showed us some of the bugs and flowers before we took off, he also said at 7 the fireflies would be out. We canceled our plans for that time and we were back by 7, my husband and 2 year old son had never seen a firefly before. William walked us and other guest around the garden, it's not the time for fireflies so we saw about 20( I guess during peak times there are hundreds). It was still fantastic. William showed us to our room, it was AMAZING. The wood work in there was fantastic, the smell that came off of the cypress furniture was great. We loved everything about our room. FYI the beds are firm. We are American but live in Taipei, so we're use to the firm beds and don't mind them(that is what you get in Asia). William showed us a flower that only blooms at night, it was fun to go check it out the next morning and see that the flower had fallen off. We set up breakfast for 8 the next morning. They served us a tradition Taiwanese breakfast, it was a delicious hot meal. William and his wife talked with us for a bit before we left and suggested a few places to go. The location is out of town, we really enjoyed that aspect but some may not. William and his wife were just great. I highly recommend this place. In fact we're going to be going back in August!
