We've been coming to the Red Cottage for years. It's the only place I'll stay in the Capital Region. The cottage is extremely comfortable and always immaculate. The setting is secluded and quiet, and simply relaxing in the cottage or on the grounds is often the most pleasurable part of a trip to the region for me. Stafford treats her guests like family, and a gourmet breakfast is included. Over the years breakfasts I've enjoyed there have included french toast, home made muffins, breads and biscuits, local sausage and ham, scrambled eggs with herbs, fresh fruit, and the most excellent coffee (with only real cream and sugar) all made with ingredients from the local co-op. Having visited so many times and being so comfortable there, the cottage truly feels like a second home. Be sure to book well in advance. You will not be disappointed.
