We stayed at the Kitchen Cottage of the Anderson Cottage while attending a conference in nearby Hot Springs (5 mi.) The Kitchen Cottage is detached from the main house, but is right next door as it was the original kitchen for the main house. It easily sleeps 4-6 with two baths and a comfortable seating area. The downstairs is a bit rustic, but comfortable and the upstairs is very nice, with a full kitchen, bedroom and bath. We were provided with a basic continental breakfast to get us going, really totally adequate. There is a grocery store nearby to stock up on other essentials, and a couple of very good restaurants. The Waterwheel is just around the corner in this fascinating historic village. I would love to come back and spend a couple of days just wandering the area, reading up on Bath County and enjoying the cozy comfort of the Anderson Cottage Kitchen. Thank you Jean for your warm hospitality.
