Additional Information

No smoking inside the cottage. If you smoke outside, please don’t throw your cigarette butts on the ground or deck. No Pets, as we would like to respect the potential allergies of other guests (also, light carpets). No candles. Shoes off, please, inside the cottage, due to the light-coloured carpets. Please only use the fireplace if you’re confident with fire-safety and have experience with wood stoves. No additional guests at the cottage, beyond those mentioned in your booking… Aka: no parties. Check-in time is 3pm or later. Check-out time is before 11am. We need to give the cleaner time to turn-over the cottage. The Driveway in Winter: the private driveway is 800 feet long, and we have it privately plowed during the winter. In between plowings, it can still be a bit dicey, so we do absolutely recommend snow tires.

Review from Julie: 5 stars

“The cottage is so comfortable and well-appointed, it really felt more like a getaway home than a cottage. The view is stunning and there's lots of privacy. A great experience. ”
