Stephanie was a wonderful host! She was kind enough to provide breakfast and tea during our trip. She kindly gave the tour around the cabin and gave us tips on whats around the neighborhood in case we needed to go out to the local market, coffee shops. Kitchen was well stocked and the place was much bigger than we expected. During our stay we were greeted by a loving, tame, and very sweet cat who also made our stay very enjoyable.

Stephanie was the perfect combination of helpful and respectful of my privacy. The cottage is on a lovely wooded hillside. Inside, it's one large studio space with high ceilings and lots of light. The cottage is charming, well equipped, and comfortably furnished, The unexpected delight is Gabi, the resident cat. She's talkative and friendly and loves to be petted. I woke up one night to find her sleeping on my chest! If you love cats, this is an especially great place to stay.

Due to a health problem which changed the host's plans. It's the first time and hopefully the last. Many regrets.

Stephanie made a great host. She welcomed my boyfriend and I with sweet treats (cookies&tea). Also provided privacy and was quick to repond to my texts. The cabin was perfect with Gabi the house cat being so friendly. Gabi was no problem at all she had a food/water dispenser and the litter box didn't bother me one bit. The kitchen had almost everything expect a blender and I wasn't used to cooking on electric stoves but it was a great first time experience. Be careful when walking in the bathroom, my boyfriend is 6 foot and every time he walked in he bumped his head on the shelve to the right. The neighborhood was quiet which we loved. Parking was tight but the next street over had plenty of parking if you have friends coming over. Also the bed was super comfy. We enjoyed our 10 day stay and definitely would go back to dwarf town. Haha that's what my boyfriends dad said they called it in the 60s. Enjoy.

"Dwarf town" . . . that's a hoot LOL! Small is beautiful, right? Sorry about the bathroom shelf, it could be removed for tall guests. I guess this place IS designed for little people. Glad you enjoyed it.

The cottage was in a quant little town, near a beautiful mountain range. Stephanie made sure that we had everything that we needed for our stay, offering cookies and tea on our arrival. The location was wonderful and the bed was so incredibly comfortable. This is the perfect location to get away from everything and just relax. Thank you so much Stephanie!

Originally from the Midwest, I've been in SoCal for a decade. Now semi-retired and having a blast! When not working part-time as a college librarian, I'm having adventures and meeting cool people. Interests include hiking, exercising, spirituality, personal growth, and exploring the sights, events, and scenes wherever I am.
As an airbnb guest, I'm neat and clean. My needs are minimal and my tastes are simple. If I stay at your place, I probably won't be there much but rather checking out the area. When I return in the evening, I prefer a quiet dark room in which to crash and recharge for the next day.
