Amazing place and adorable hospitality!

Signing in again was the most simple way to restore my membership at Vacation Rentals. After doing that I feel a moral obligation to write this review.

I shared the very best experience and excitement with my god-daughter and a business partner in the end of July, 2014. Everything starts from the hosts, of course. Nancy and David are very kind and full of goodwill couple. Shall you have any (logical) wish, ask or desire they are always glad to do their best. David knows local area very well and is more than happy to give directions and advice. And the place is fantastic for every nature lover: peaceful serenity, watching starry sky in the evening or slowly floating fog in the morning from a porch with a cup of coffee or glass of wine are just a few things to mention. There are number of wonderful sightseeing places in a short driving distance. I don't know why, but the cottage in the pictures looks ordinary while in the reality it is extraordinary. There is no internet and I accept that as an advantage. It is great to rest a week or so from all that electronic garbage and routine. It is the place to spend your vacation. Moreover, really fantastic place. Thank you Nancy and David for unforgettable experience.

Excellent experience

  • 5 of 5
Most excellent place to stay. The pictures do not do the property justice. The owners are fine people and do everything in their power to make your stay an enjoyable one. Chalet is excellent and very convenient to all attractions, very quiet and relaxing. The restaurants in town are very good, we ate at a different one each day and had very good meals at all of them. Would definately recommend this property to anyone wanting a very nice and relaxing vacation.thanks again to David & Nancy for a very nice vacation. David & Charlotte

From the Owner

Just to be able to enjoy the peace and quiet. Relaxing with a cup of coffee each morning while swing on the porch. Going for a walk or hike through the woods on the property to get back to nature.
