Kitty is the best AirBnB hostess I have had the pleasure of interacting with. Always prompt, communicative, courteous and what a cottage. No detail is too small, down to the spare toiletries. The cottage is full of love and pride of ownership. We had a blast and seriously can't wait to come back. Besides, Kitty loves dogs and flew planes. Dogs don't dig hollow people and you can't be a pilot if you're not honest and perfect. Kitty is an amazing woman. Book with confidence.

We had a wonderful stay at Kitty's cottage. The home was clean, comfortable, and cozy. We appreciate all the treats and comforts of home Kitty provided. It is the most well stocked Airbnb I have ever stayed at. The neighborhood is also nice and quiet. I would highly recommend!

Our stay at the Enchanted Cottage was amazing! We felt very comfortable throughout our stay and Kitty outfitted the house with plenty of personalized touches to keep our minds and imaginations active! We were greeted by homemade coffee cake, a bottle of wine and a treasure hunt. It was a nice way to explore the subtle details of the house while enjoying the wine. The house was well stocked with basic toiletries (for men and women) and plenty of clean towels. The kitchen was also fully stocked with pots and pans, plates, utensils, spices, etc. We would definitely recommend a stay the Enchanted Cottage and would love to stay again if we come back to the area!

Kitty was a great host. The house interiors were thoughtfully done. We had a nice time playing the treasure hunt Kitty arranged. My son had fun playing with the piano. Overall a nice pleasant stay

We spent three days of our holiday in this lovely house. Kitty was helpful in planning, the communication worked perfectly, and we even got help in planning our trip from Boston to Elmira. During the trip we got a helpful text about local road works. The house corresponds perfectly to the description - cozy is the key. It is located in a quiet and peaceful neighborhood. In the house we were greeted by freshly baked cake, basic groceries in the fridge - and a treasure hunt - TFTC ;-). We had all in all a truly wonderful stay - thanks Kitty.

I love to be pampered so it gives me great joy to create beautiful, comfortable spaces with little surprises of wonderment. Prior to owning a guest house, I was a software guru, a jet pilot, and a journalist. Now I focus on keeping a balance between work and play. If there is anything you need or want, please let me know so I can make your stay as enjoyable as possible.
