Response from Owner
Thanks Gina - Great to know you enjoyed your stay.
Wendy McLaren
We enjoyed our stay even at the beginning of winter. The fire is amazing and soon warms the house. It had all we needed for the days we stayed. Kitchen well equipped for making meals (and mulled wine). Shower was fantastic after cold, wet walks. The beds were reasonably comfortable. The owner was easy to work with. Would stay here again.
