Midge and Tom were wonderful. Had everything you would need to be comfortable with the added bonus of fresh eggs and bacon in the frig for breakfast.

The owners were friendly and wonderful. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything you might need. The cottage was very clean and cozy. My mother-in-law wanted to rent it out permanently and retire. She's still raving about it 2 months after our stay. I highly recommend you give the Shady Tree Cottage a try...you'll be glad you did.
