The space

Small, self contained, clean and quiet cedar cottage with deck. Suitable for singles or a couple only. Sleeping loft, small kitchenette, shower, toilet, sink. No smoking. Wi-Fi, no TV, MP3 player/radio, a guitar to noodle on, and lots of books! The cottage is reached by pathway, and is backed by neighboring woods. Please note that the path to the cottage is sloped and the stairway to the loft is rather steep, therefore the cottage is not suited for the mobility impaired. Bedding is cotton and down. Our feline companion Belle is a regular visitor to the cottage.

People say they've had their best sleep ever in the loft! The spring water through our taps is sweet, and the ocean climate is temperate.
The essentials (coffee, tea, cream, local bread and eggs, butter, jam) for your first breakfast are provided; please take advantage of the abundant choices of local produce, cheeses, baked goods, wines and brewery for other meals.


Free parking on premises
Laptop friendly workspace
Unavailable: Carbon monoxide detector
