We are pet-friendly, but only if your canine is not a homicidal maniac. My in-laws who have a second cottage on the property have their own very friendly rescue dog. 2BR/1.5Bath cottage on private 6+ acre tree-shrouded hilltop. Walking distance to downtown and famous swimming quarry. Miles of hiking/biking trails. Upgraded appliances and newly refinished screen porch. Recently added high-speed Internet and cable TV.
