This cottage met my needs for an extended stay in the area (clean, quiet, affordable and easy access). I could tell a lot of effort has gone into making the cottage cute, comfortable and functional. The full kitchen was great as was having a laundry room. I made good use of both! Desiree was a great host and very responsive when I had need of something, and behind-the-scenes when I didn't. There were several unusually hot days during my 3-week stay. Without the typical evening cross breeze to cool the cottage down, it was quite hot that first night. I asked if she had a box fan or similar that I could put in the doorway to blow the cool night air into the cottage, and she was immediately on it. The very next morning, 3 fans appeared on the porch, plus she had purchased a box fan that was delivered the following day. The additional fans worked perfectly, and I stayed very comfortable on even the hottest days. The only very minor issues were the frequent country road noise (the owner mentioned recent nearby development had led to an increase in road use), and mold odors in the bathroom (the bathroom itself was clean and looked to have been recently caulked). I only mention these issues because someone else might have more sensitivity to these things than I do. I don't think either of these issues would keep me from returning, and I do think this cottage has a lot to offer. Thanks, Desiree, for a great stay!
