Gene and Wendy are wonderful hosts. I was in town on business and stayed at Avalon Cliff for 3 weeks with my 2 dogs. Pet friendly!! They provided a dog bed, bowls and treats for the pups. The photos of the cottage were more than accurate and left little to the imagination. The grounds were more beautiful than expected and I knew exactly was I was getting when it came to the accommodations. The cottage felt like an "oasis in the trees". It is not the place for anyone afraid of nature and more than 4 people would be tight for the size of the cottage. Yes, there were stinkbugs but Gene warned me of that information upon my arrival and offered to remove them daily; There was not an abundance of stinkbugs. (There was also a great little hand held dirt devil to remove the ones that ventured inside at an instance). The house and linens were clean and I was able to use the private laundry facilities downstairs in the garage. The kitchen was well stocked and WIFI on site was a huge help as well. I was able to secure a dog walker (Erin with "Tails and Trails" was FANTASTIC and reasonable!) and having the park down the drive was a great convenience. The sun room was a perfect place to have the dogs during the day (no fenced area unfortunately) and the porch just off the kitchen was a great space to unwind and have breakfast. Overall, my stay was very enjoyable and I look forward to returning to Avalon Cliff next year! Thank you Gene and Wendy!
