“I felt we had been adopted, we were made that much a part of the family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2007

Having arrived in Floyd from Ireland to 'do' the Crooked Road music scene we went to the visitor's centre where we met the lovely Diane, who could not have been nicer or more helpful. She rang around and finally got us into Jeanie’s Cottage on Main. It was just on the edge of the main street – charming and unique.
This small, old-fashioned wooden cottage sits in her garden at the back of her more colonial style house. Beside the house is her cottage. Jeanie’s father owned all of this and had run his veterinary clinic from the cottage where he had also reared his family.
Jeanie is a handsome, lively lady who is an artist and designer of handbags. She is obviously a real goer. The Cottage is her most recent venture. She has developed two ‘suites’ in the Cottage and she has hand-painted everything, including floors, walls, furniture, light switches. The walls in every room show off her own oil paintings. She seems to go in for studies of groups of people. She is friendly and easy to get to know. She seemed to be delighted to have Irish (and one English) visitors. We were invited to her house for a drink at 6.30.
Steps led up to the small porch with comfy armchairs and a swing door led into a wonderful old world room. Wood panelled, carpeted, wooden floors, big sofas and sloppy armchairs; Jeanie’s work on the walls, a towering fireplace, photo frames and ornaments and artefacts everywhere. We enjoyed a glass of wine and a rambling exchange with them. She is a tall, handsome woman, with rough working hands, sharp, blue eyes and a warm, charming smile. She makes clothes and handbags, paints large packed canvases, and has just this month launched this new business with the cottage.
The cottage is a rare magical place.
