Our old fashioned one bedroom cottage is private and quiet with a full kitchen with dining table and day bed. Living room with surround windows, wifi, comfortable seating. Our guests say: "This is paradise!" Located in sunny Deer Harbor in a very private valley on a dead end road, you can watch our mustangs play in the meadows below, or the deer munching apples from our 100 year old trees. Our snug cottage has an old fashioned feeling with wood floors, wainscoating, high ceilings, lots of sunshine and walls of windows. Yet it is modern, warm and has high speed internet for those who are working or need to stay in touch. NO PETS, SORRY!
