A party in front of our cottage with loud music prevented us from enjoying this marvellous place. Kind of ruining the whole thing.
A part from that, the place is great !!
My sincerest apologies for the upset. I did ask that the children not go near the cottage and to turn down the music. Will discuss this with the director for future activities there.
The host canceled this reservation 4 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
This is a magical place. We stayed two nights and could have stayed a week. The cottage is lovely, both inside and outside, and it was very comfortable. The fridge and mini-kitchen were stocked with snacks and breakfast goodies when we arrived, which were replenished on the morning of the 2nd day. It's quiet, peaceful, and incredibly relaxing. To top it all off, there is a restaurant on the property that serves delicious lunches.
The staff we met were all friendly and helpful in making it a wonderful stay. We were lucky to meet the owner who gave us a tour of the entire property. Beautiful bayous, ponds with alligators, a huge bird rookery, and a 50-year old mansion grace the site.
Rip Van Winkle is convenient to many wonderful things to do in the area an we hope to return again. We would recommend it to anyone.
Everything was just as described on the listing, if not better. Getting to stroll the magnificent gardens alone at night after the gardens had closed to the public was a very special experience.
Our stay at Rip Van Winkle Gardens was fantastic! We didn't realise at first that we would actually say in the gardens themselves, but that was a highlight. We never met the host(s), but we went into the souvenir shop and the lady gave us complimentary tickets for the gardens and a tour through the mansion. The cottage itself was very comfortable and romantic and had everything for a DIY breakfast in the fridge, even a bottle of wine. Check-in and booking was easy and we found everything exactly the way it was described. Great place!
This place was exceptional! I would highly recommend it to anyone. Beautiful grounds and gardens set right on a pristine lake with peacocks running around, and a complimentary wine bottle and cheese for the evening with breakfast in the morning. We couldn't have found a better paradise. Only regret was not staying two nights!
This place is awsome, just perfect, we loved it.
The host is adorable, we felt confortable immediately.
We had the whole estate to ourselves for 2 days....heaven
The cottage was spacious and well-appointed, and the grounds are beautiful. It was very quiet and peaceful. Excellent value. We would definitely come back. Highly recommended!
We had a perfect stay in this idyllic setting. The private cabin was just as described, and had all the facilities you would need for a short stay ... including ample provisions for breakfast!! Full of character and very clean and very cosy.
