Cyndee was great and very responsive. I booked our stay with her after midnight on the day of our stay. I wanted to surprise my girlfriend so after she fell asleep I contacted Cyndee and she got back to me within minutes! We worked out all the details and our trip was set!!! I highly recommend staying there if you have the chance. Thanks again Cyndee!!
Cyndee 's place was great! Would definitely stay again and recommend to others!
Cyndee is a great host and a great vegan cook. Her place was large enough for myself, my husband and our three young children. The futons were as comfortable as futons could be. She made sure we stayed warm with electric heaters and lots of warm blankets, it was very nice. The location was convenient for us, not too far from Princeton and close to Valley Forge, and the neighbourhood was very quiet. The sound of the crickets was almost overwhelming, it was a welcome reminder of our own nighttime noises at home. The place itself is spacious and accommodating, the bathtub was clean and the sheets were clean and fresh... The floors however could use a little attention, a good vacuum and scrub. Overall our experience at Cyndee's place was good.
We stayed at Cyndee's for 12 nights visiting from England UK.
I confidently would highly reccomend the Cottage. I have to say the lovely Vegan breakfasts were a delightful education most excellent ! .The location was great as we were within easy drives to New York City around one hour twenty also only half an hour from downtown Philadelphia also Jersey Shore and the many attractions in both New Jersey and Pennsylvania Cyndee was a wonderful and friendly host and it was like returning home to our secure private haven after our daily drives and excursions as promised I saw Hummingbirds got some great pics of Swallow Tail butterflies Hummingbird Hawk Moths and Cicadas we also saw a Groundhog some Possums and heard Raccoons at night along with the symphony of Crickets and Cicadas. Coming from the UK this was a great experience and sitting out on the deck was a joy in the evenings.
For a reasonably priced alternative to a motel this is great a bit like being at home when away I highly recommend.

Cyndee is very friendly personality. The place is lovely and very conveniently located. It was a pleasure to be there.
Cyndee's cottage was wonderful. The area was beautiful and it was quiet and comfortable. I was so glad I got to stay there, though sad I did not get to chat more with her. She was very helpful explaining how to get there from the airport. I travelled by train and it was a nice short walk.
The cottage was not very clean. Half of the ground floor is in fact a tools deposit. Pictures are accurate although make the house larger than it actually is.
The location is nice and quiet, but too bad for the too many mosquitos.
Cyndee has been nice with us.
Thanks for your input, Giacomo, but that area was actually closed off by a room divider/partition, separating it from the bed/breakfast area. It is my private workshop, hence, the walls that were there to divide it from the rest of the cottage, which should have been kept as so.
Since my husband's passing, I have cleared out most of the stuff he had stored there, but the very small area where the tools are will continue to be my personal space and private workshop.
I have plans on renovating more of the downstairs, though, to include another full-size futon bed, accomodating 1-2 additional people.
Cyndee was super prompt with communication and very kindly tried to plan in advance to accommodate my five year old's picky tastes! Her breakfast was delicious, and I didn't have to eat again until dinnertime! The cottage was private and just what we needed for our one night traveling through the area.
I spent 2 weeks at Cyndee's cottage with my dog and we had a wonderful time. The cottage is quaint and cozy and set back from the street. It was so peaceful and I enjoyed hearing and seeing all of the nature and wildlife on Cyndee's property each day. My favorite part about staying with Cyndee was her vegan cooking and our conversations over meals. Not only is she a talented musician but she is also a talented chef. She prepared the most amazing full vegan breakfasts and baked goodies for continental breakfasts. I am already missing her vegan sausage, orange scones, and banana bread. I have never eaten so well in my life! I hope to be back in the area soon so I can stay with Cyndee.
