Our cottage has been a dream come true over the past 12 years. My husband of 30 years and I have designed and finished every detail ourselves and we continue to develop the gardens to reflect a whimsical and romantic style. After raising a family, we're eager for the next leg of the journey, sharing our home and region with others who want to travel in authentic ways. We are passionate about gourmet cooking, organic gardening, and conservation. You'll notice we care about details - rain barrels, our geothermal heating/cooling system, and energy-friendly appliances. We look forward to making new friends, learning about new cultures, and enjoying this renaissance time in our lives.
