We had a wonderful time staying at Ninas cabin! She is such a welcoming host! She brought us to this beautiful lake (and even lent us towels as we didn't pack beach ones!) made Tomas coffee every morning, and allowed us as much personal space as we wanted!!! The cabin was beautiful, the views are serene, we even saw a dear and it's baby right on the lawn. It's not far from the town, by bike it was about 15 mins, and there so much by way of bars/restaurants - really cool. The only very small downside was that the bed is like a sofa bed, so not quite as large as a double, but that said, we still slept very well on it! We will definitely return.

Nina was an amazing host! So personable and fun, we loved getting to know her and stay in her cute bnb.

The cabin was a thoughtfully designed space, which we thoroughly enjoyed. Nina was very hospitable and made us feel welcome. While the bed was a bit small for the two of us, the setting was scenic and the location was convenient for us to drive from Enterprise where we rented our car. Pooh was the cutest! Nina went out of her way to make us morning coffee, and we loved talking her about photography and her travels.

Response from Nina:
i’m sorry you felt the bed was too small.. it’s a double... as most people tell me they sleep so well.. like a rock..... i’m always open to having a larger size if it doesnt take away from the space of the cottage

This place is perfection. The cabin is immaculately designed, the vibe is so soothing and Nina is a gracious and easy host. Coming up from the city for a quick reset, this place couldn't have been better for its closeness and peacefulness. Can't wait to return!

i am an easy going , very friendly person… as long as there is respect and honesty and a consideration and care for the cottage i believe I’m a great host.

for myself . I’m a photographer.. documentary, fine art, street, love conversation , travel, being on the beach or near water.. a nice day is picking rocks or wild flowers.. or meandering around the cities or unknown places with my camera, talking to strangers and learning about this global world of ours

I’m efficient, clean, a great communicator and down to earth…

id love to host or to visit your air b n b….. i will leave any place i visit just as i found it on arrival.. minus the dirty sheets…
