Cosy and quiet

5/5 Excellent

Great location and dog friendly
Is a small space, but tidy and private

5/5 Excellent

Blissful spot
Absolutely blissful spot, on the edge of the forest, surrounded by birdsong. Racheal and Steve were amazing hosts, attentive to your needs and also allowing you the privacy to enjoy the surrounding nature. Will definitely be returning!

5/5 Excellent

Cabin in the Woods
Tiny but perfect, the cabin is extremely well appointed. Clean, comfy bed, good heating, good fridge to get the beers really cold. Even the chiminea just needed a match. The woods aren't native, but the bird life is. Quirky and artsy , we hope to go back. Thanks Rachael for your thoughtful, but mindful hospitality.

5/5 Excellent

Secluded setting with stunning views
Cute little cabin on a beautiful bit of land. Loved the little walkway around the property and all the cute mushrooms everywhere. Great couples getaway.
