Our guests have described the cottage as "like having a country house without needing to maintain one." Everything in this quaint 530 square foot cottage is there for you to use and everything you'll need is there. The place is furnished with a queen-size bed and two additional twin-size sleeping spaces. Prepare to snuggle up in pure cotton bedding with lots of pillows. Robes, quality towels and toiletries provided. An assortment of fresh teas, coffees, spices and condiments are waiting for you. A grill, patio furniture, hammock for two, glider, books, games, local maps, brochures, travel tips, and so much more are all provided, too.
The cottage is perched among 16 idyllic acres of secluded forest enveloping the maintained grounds, offering all the solitude you need. The property offers over a mile of walking trails you are welcome to use, along with many relaxing surprises (tables & chairs for a romantic picnics, resting benches, meditation nooks, swings, a little library, etc). You can chill out on the bluffs, dip your toes in the stream or walk down to the river. The cottage has its own grill and a fire pit. Yes, it's true, we provide FREE FIREWOOD and marshmallows, too. There is plenty of shaded parking, even enough for a trailer, and lots of room for primitive camping.
The cottage is a separate building from our house, so guests will have the run of their place without worrying about disturbing or being disturbed. While our property is large enough that we rarely cross paths, you may occasionally see another human or a furry friend. We have a real "petitude," respecting animals as much as people.

To insure no one is hungry, our cottage has a fully equipped kitchenette and we offer meal services. The meals on request are not exactly cheap (as the price covers visiting local farms, fetching organic ingredients, carefully crafting individual menus, preparing food and serving it warm to your doorstep, bed or sunroom at any time you like). We promise they won't only fill the stomachs, without exception our guests praise them as some of the best dining experiences ever. They range from Picnic Basket (for breakfast, lunch or light dinner for at least 2 people), Country Breakfast, Surprise Dinner, warm bread, home made yogurt, jam, pâté, Slow Food Blast, list goes on...
We also offer additional services such as professional massage, access to hot tub, fitness and spa (European standards apply), vow renewals and wedding services on the spot, we can arrange a perfect birthday / anniversary surprise for your beloved one on arrival, happy puppy retreat... all for a fee (the complete list of options with prices will be sent to you in your booking conformation). These services are for the comfort and convenience of our guests, who are under no obligation to partake.
Rule no. 1: UNWIND, RELAX & ENJOY. We appreciate finding the place just as we left it for you to enjoy. Please return things to where you found them. Unless your mom is coming, wash, dry and put away your dishes. We strive to minimize our environmental impact and so should our guests. Wastefulness is not appreciated. RECYCLE. We appreciate peace and quiet to maintain the tranquility. Smoking outdoors only (ashtray provided). Fee for additional guests applies to ALL AGES. Well-behaved, housebroken, groomed, crated pets or those with their own bed are welcome, but are NOT to be on any furniture at any time. They're welcome to experience freedom, exploring the surrounding woods, fields, creek or swimming in the river. However, if you can't trust your dog off-leash, don't bring it. Our dog Kora has been attacked twice by visiting dogs and it won’t happen again. If your dog can’t be a good guest, you both will be asked to leave. $35/pet/stay (payable on ARRIVAL) to ensure the comfort of our pet-allergic guests. We like people very much but if you are the type who stresses over upside down receptacles or birds chirping too loudly, please do us all a favor and book somewhere else. We adore kids and animals but refuse to babysit adults. If ever in doubt about anything, ASK. We are always just a click or phone call away. The last house rule is to play fair: you relied on the reviews of others (it's common courtesy you contribute too), so MAKE SURE TO LEAVE YOUR REVIEW.

For us hospitality is a labor of love. Come join us and let us introduce you to this spectacular part of the world, where we celebrate every day of our lives. We like spoiling people and revealing secrets of cozy country living. It's our pleasure to have you comfortably tucked away while unwinding and recharging in our little retreat. We guarantee we'll do our absolute best to satisfy your needs.
Yes, we take our hosting very seriously and cutting corners is not our style. In fact, our ideas are constantly being borrowed by other local hosts who lack what we have in abundance: experience, expertise and imagination. After being guests ourselves in +130 countries, we are well trained, qualified and capable of providing highly personalized hospitality you'll fondly remember for years to come.
