A private detached guest studio apartment for your romantic getaway, retreat, digital detox, or vacation.

The natural light filled private suite boasts a vaulted ceiling, skylight, wood and natural stone floors, full bath shower/tub combo, storage for hanging garments, and over-sized wood stove with firewood for ambiance and to keep you toasty warm.

Studio furnishings include a plush Queen bed for a single or a couple, and table for two. Quality cotton linens, pillows, towels, comforter, and duvet are freshly washed, fluffed, and ironed before your visit.

Additional conveniences include coffee maker (with fresh ground coffee, decaf, & tea selection), microwave and mini fridge; great for keeping snacks and beverages close at hand but not suitable for meal preparation.

Glenn and Suzanne are unbelievably sweet people! It was almost as if I was staying at a mini resort. They were very helpful with everything and the accommodations they provided exceeded my expectations for an air bnb! I will definitely be returning!

Glenn and Suzanne, are by far the best hosts one could hope for. They gave us very detailed directions on how to get to the cottage. Once there, they had a ton of helpful suggestions on restaurants and hikes we could do. All of which were amazing. They even gave us a pair of binoculars to use over the weekend, which was great. The cottage itself is really nice, cozy and clean. It's secluded which meant it was absolutely quiet and also gave us the opportunity to star gaze. It was an absolute joy being there over the weekend. Would go back in a heartbeat !

We had an incredible weekend at this cottage! The space is beautiful, cozy, and pristine. The hosts, Glenn and Suzanne were wonderful and super helpful. They made us feel like family upon meeting them, and made my fiance's birthday weekend very special. It will be a weekend we won't forget! We highly recommend staying here if you are looking for a peaceful weekend surrounded by nature.
