We had a wonderful stay at the cottage in February. I have family in the area that cannot accommodate all of us as houseguests so the location and three bedrooms worked out perfectly! The host left various beverages in the fridge and some sweet treats that were very much appreciated after our long trip via airplane and car ride to Ayden. The cottage was clean and comfortable.
As reported by another user, the shower is a tight fit but it helps with quick showers!
I did accidentally break an umbrella while I was there, reported it to the host immediately, and she was gracious enough to use the cleaning fee towards a replacement.
All in all, we had a great stay, the host was fabulous, responsive, and charming.
We will be back again (with my own umbrella 😊)
We enjoyed our stay at the Farmville house - the home is spacious and elegant. We liked Farmville itself, attending the church behind the house on Sunday, visiting the local gun shop (owned and run by a savvy woman!), the antique store, the Salvation Army, and even Piggly Wiggly. We like cooking our own food and were able to do this easily. The home is filled with antiques, which lends to the charm.
There are a few things that might be considered a negative. Showering in the claw-foot tub could be a hazard for some people. The shower in the tubs works just fine, but watch out for the hot water to disappear if you're doing dishes at the same time. It had just turned a bit cold when we got there and the house was a bit drafty. Even so, we all thought it was a terrific place to stay and quite enjoyed it. It was fun and different and we would do it again. Thanks, James.
