I was truly impressed by the quality of everything I got staying at the Acorn kottage. Such a reasonable price to pay for exclusive comfort of homey environment. Kara was so helpful whenever I had a question, she even personally stopped by to fix some minor issue right away (the speaker cord was disconnected, and I could not figure out why TV had no sound). I felt very comfortable making my own breakfast without a need to dress and go to a hotel's lobby for it. There is plentiful supply of everything from bathroom to kitchen items, and beyond. The place was very quiet, I did not wake up even once during the night, which is unusual for me. Slept like a baby in cozy bed. Thank you Kara!

We could not give Kara's Kottages enough stars. She was kind, accommodating, and inviting; the amenities were exceptional. The entire atmosphere was romantic. Kara's thoughtful touches in regard to decor (claw-foot tub, soft linens, sound machine, antique lighting/fashions) make the stay all the more enjoyable for a couple or solo traveler who is looking to relax. We will be back!

I was a little apprehensive when I saw the outside of the building, but once inside our room, I was very impressed. Very clean, nicely decorated, beautiful kitchen and we felt very cozy there! I highly recommend it!

I was in town for a family funeral and my stay at the Kottage was a very welcome refuge during an extremely stressful time. The rooms are cozy and comfy and everything you can think of that you may need is available. Having the freedom to cook my own meals was a great money saver and the fire pit outside was a relaxing way to end each day. If I'm back in town again, I will be staying here. For what you get for the price, it's an absolute bargain.

We stayed here for one night during a road trip and what a treat. A beautifully furnished, fully equipped apartment in a beautiful Victorian. The beds were so comfortable with gorgeous cotton sheets. Great shower provided with all the products that you would need, soft white towels and robes. The kitchen was fully equipped and the fridge / freezer had the makings for breakfast (plus a welcome glass of wine after a long day’s driving). We even had time to relax on the the sofa to watch some tv. Kara has thought of everything and was amazingly responsive with recommendations for where we could catch a late dinner on a Sunday night. The place is fantastic and is such good value, compared to two rooms in a best western!
