The feeling of seclusion with the convenience of location and pet friendly too! Just 5 miles from downtown, our sweet, freshly renovated cottage has a seashore theme and attached, fenced pet yard. IKEA king size bed & comfortable double pullout. *New and Improved!* The large porch is now screened-in for mosquito-free lounging!
The Cottage is a 795 square-foot one-bedroom bungalow situated on our four-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 double bed, a dining area, a half bathroom, a flat screen TV with DVD player, and access to the large *now screened-in!* 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, 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.
Our guests use a separate driveway, so there is no worry of disturbing us as you come and go. The Cottage is accessed with a door code which is unique to you and is changed after each stay. You are welcome on any part of the property; we just ask that you respect our privacy and be kind to the property and our critters.
Interaction with guests
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!
Other things to note
WiFi is available, but while the connection is generally adequate for surfing the net, it may not be sufficient for streaming video or gaming.
When making your Reservation Request, please advise us if you will be bringing pets.
Check-in time is 3:00 PM; Check-out time is 11:00 AM.
Smoking is not permitted anywhere on the property.
Please be respectful of us and our neighbors by avoiding loud music/TV and by observing quiet after 10 PM.
Please wash any dishes you use – putting them away would be helpful, but leaving them to dry is fine. A drying rack and drying mat are provided.
Dogs may be loose in the fenced dog yard, but otherwise must be leashed when outside. Please pick up after your dog outside the dog yard. We have provided pick-up bags by the front door. We do not charge a pet fee, however you will be required to pay for damage caused by your pet or extra cleaning needed because of “accidents."
Please be comfortable, but we ask that you not waste energy. Turn off lights and/or heaters when you are not using them, etc.

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.
