This place is a really beautiful little home-away-from-home. Clean, tidy and well furnished, it provided a great overnight stay for us as we travelled around the area with another couple and their children. It has a nice little patch of lawned area which the kids used to run themselves tired. Jessie was a wonderful host, and was accommodating and helpful....

About 15 minutes later, Jessie brought us to cottage No 18 at Kepler Mountain View. Once we were inside...
