First, Anderson Cottage is pet-friendly. Part of the charm for me is sitting on the hammock and throwing a stick for my border collie and knowing he can step into the burbling stream behind me and get cool. Then I dry him off and we go upstairs in the Kitchen Cottage to our bedroom, sitting room and kitchen which is closed off from the rest of the little cottage by a gate so that when we walk down the road to eat at the Waterwheel we can leave the pooch safely ensconced and happy. Breakfast was a prepared put in the oven and cook casserole (lovely French Toast this time) with a loaf of banana or some type of bread, fruit and this time, sausage. The coffee maker is there for you as is tea and all the accoutrements. We only stayed overnight (they would prefer two nights but accommodated us) and I wish we had stayed longer. It is a lovely setting, quiet, convenient to the restaurant we like and close to the Jefferson Pools and simply, totally, a delightful place to stay and relax!
