Welcome to our cottage nestled in a historic waterfront town. This winter enjoy a cocktail by the fireplace. Turn on some music and dance while cooking up your favorite dinner in the fully equipped kitchen, have dinner brought to you or enjoy a delicious dinner at one of our restaurants . Just a quick walk down Main ST., grab a specialty coffee, pick up a souvenir, catch the sunset on the river, and much more! Great place to work with high speed internet!

The space
The cottage sits approx. 75 feet from the back of the main house, with a granite/stone breezeway between, creating a large patio space for you to enjoy. Once inside the cottage it is open and airy, decorated with a nautical theme in the main living space/dining. This area also has the warmth of a cozy gas fireplace. The bedroom area is just around the corner. The kitchen is more farmhouse industrial decor and is just off of the dining area. The bedroom is in the back left threw a short wide hallway from the living area. Full bath has a stand up shower w/waterfall showerhead. The entire space is for you and you alone (we may cross paths on the patio/parking area) Get away and come relax is our small riverfront town. We look forward to welcoming you as our guest.

Note: The upstairs bedroom can be opened to accommodate 2 more people for an additional 25 a person. (It is an A line roof, so we do not recommend for people over 6 ft, it is an open staircase, not recommend for young children, 2 twin beds)

Dogs are welcome, but must be on a leash at all times, outside of the fenced in back yard. Owners are responsible for all Doggie damages and must clean up there poop. Sorry no cats.

Guest access
The entire Cottage is yours. We live in the Main house, our back deck faces your front patio, which is quite large and we might see each other in crossing. The lot next to the Manor is graveled and is our own private parking. Bring the bikes, kayaks, jet ski, and boat. The cottage has it's own front entrance, and also has a side door out to the small fenced in yard. Feel free to use the entire patio, grill up on the back deck of the Manor, enjoy smores at the fire pit, have dinner out on the patio table w/umbrellas. Welcome!

NOTE: 2nd floor bedroom, 2 twin beds, decorated in a shabby chic decor, bring the family or friends, if opened up for your stay it is 25.00 extra per person per night. NOT RECOMMENDED for people over 6ft and small children, it has a A line ceiling and an open stair case! If interested ask for photo's and more information, we will be happy to accommodate as best we can.

For our longer term guest (30 days or more) we provide wash for towels and sheets. Just put in plastic bag and hang outside the door for a 24 hour turn around.

Bryan and I (Gwendolyn) bought the Historic home in 2015, I absolutely fell in love with it and the quaint waterfront town. The "Cottage" at the time was being used as a glorified storage shed. However in the past it had been many things, most recently about 2011 it was known as a small little Bar called "The Bee's Nest" then it became a small convenience store. When we first bought the property we did a quick fix up of the cottage and our son and his wife moved in and rented for a while. After buying their first home we were trying to decide what to do with the space. Open another store? Move my gift shop into the space? So Many possibilities, but we finally decided to open it to guest visiting our little town. Currently there is no where to stay right in town, and we wanted to share our love of it with travelers/guest. It is a great little weekend getaway location. Not wanting it to be referred to as the Bee's Nest all the time.(mine you we love a cocktail or two from time to time) We decided to rename property, Gwendolyn's Marigold Manor (Built 1902). ("The Cottage" was a shed/wooden structure as far back as 1920) We are so happy that we took the time to look at this property, it was meant to be, we came to town to downsize, buy a little condo on the river, we said, ha ha ha.
