I stayed with Sheila during February 2015, while recuperating from a serious injury. She created an environment in which I could recover in her home conveniently located near downtown and made every effort to be accommodating -- even if it inconvenienced her. Sheila also has a wealth of knowledge about Peterborough and the surrounding area. I strongly recommend you stay with her if you're coming to the Monadnock region.
Shiela was very welcoming. Yes it was a cozy cottage. If you want personal, intimate &scan share a bathroom this is the place. Day after lots of snow &nice . Sheila's son helped me clean off my car. Yes would do it again.
Sheila was fantastically welcoming and a great host. We had a wonderful time in the area. The other reviews got the details spot on...
A wonderful two nights in this charming home. Sheila is very welcoming as well as a talented oil painter. Her buffet style breakfasts are outstanding! Comfortable bed and cozy room with plenty of books and blankets. A great backyard. We were very relaxed as it is a quiet peaceful home. Very close to downtown Peterborough, trails and Dublin lake. If you're traveling through NH I suggest staying here during your travels. Thanks Sheila!
I highly recommend Sheila's cozy cottage airbnb in downtown Peterborough for anyone exploring this beautiful part of NH. The description was accurate, describing a comfortable room with private entrance, ample furnishings and available kitchen. Most importantly, Sheila is a gracious hostess and customizes breakfast supplies for her guests. The location is very convenient to shops and sites in the area, and the cottage environment is restful and includes a nice backyard and parking. What is not to like? Gayle
When we arrived, Sheila greeted us with a warm smile and lit candles and showed us the way to our own private entrance up a lantern-lit flight of stone steps. The room was very cozy, artfully decorated, with a comfy bed , beautiful writing table, and interesting books to read. Our room was off of the beautiful backyard, complete with a hammock, screened sitting area, white stringed lights, and a table. It was the perfect place to do morning yoga right before the delicious breakfast Sheila left out for us. She asked us our breakfast preferences and gave us our space in the morning. We really felt at home! It is just a 10 minute walk from the beautiful, artsy downtown area of Peterborough. Sheila's home is beautiful, and she is a fascinating lady, a wonderful painter, and a great host.
I enjoyed your company and loved our conversations together! You both are so appreciative of small things and that makes being a host very very rewarding. Thank You for choosing my "Cozy Cottage" ! Have a good Winter ! And come back anytime to Ski at Windblown .
Sheila was a great hostess! Very accommodating and knowledgeable about things to do and see in the area. The very cozy and comfortable room was perfect! Lots of wonderful books to enjoy while relaxing. A nice walk into town and a very quiet and peaceful stay. I really enjoyed my stay and am looking forward to returning in the future. Thank you Sheila!
