The feeling of seclusion with the convenience of location and pet friendly too! Just 5 miles from downtown, our sweet cottage has a seashore theme and attached, fenced pet yard. IKEA king size bed in the bedroom and comfortable queen pullout in the living room. The large porch is screened-in for mosquito-free lounging!

The space
The Cottage is a 795 square-foot one-bedroom bungalow situated on our seven-acre property which overlooks the pasture where our two horses reside. It is accessed by its own circular driveway and has plenty of space for parking cars and a horse trailer or boat trailer. The exterior is well lit, so there is no problem with arriving after dark. The living room provides seating for four (more if you use the dining chairs), a couch which pulls out to a comfortable queen bed, a dining area, a half bathroom, a flat screen smart TV, and access to the large porch - and a view of the sunrise - through an eight-foot sliding door. On the porch, you can relax in the four Adirondack chairs while your burgers are cooking on the gas grill. The small but functional kitchen contains a refrigerator, stove, microwave, toaster, and coffee makers, as well as pots and pans, dishes, flatware, and utensils. There is seating for two at the counter. The bedroom is spacious and has a king size bed, double clothes closet, dresser and a computer desk. The back door opens to a fenced dog yard, so you can just let your furry friends out to “go.” In the master bathroom you will find a large vanity, a shower, and the washer/dryer. Oh, and there’s even a commode! The entire space is tiled, and there is seashore-themed décor throughout.

Since we live on premises (well, even if we didn’t), we do not want The Cottage to be the place for a wild party or gun practice! We want you to feel at home but be respectful of our home, our animals, and our neighbors.

While the all tile floor makes for easy living, it can be cool under your feet. We have slipper socks for the women, but you may wish to bring your own slippers.

Horses in my backyard was a life long dream. I hope you experience a little of your dream while staying with us. Thoughts become things so choose the good ones.

During your stay

We live on premises, so we are nearly always available if you need assistance. We enjoy meeting new people, so we can be as interactive (or scarce) as you would like us to be. All guests have a standing invitation to muck stalls with me in the morning!
