This is truly a special place

5 on September 12, 2012

These cottages provide a truly special get-away. My husband and I stayed in the carriage house which has a nice view of the Deer Harbor marina but still provides privacy since it is set back in a lush garden behind a charming wooden gate. We would go there again in a heartbeat. The setting was perfect, service was outstanding, and the overall accommodations were five-star. I smile just thinking about our time there. It truly is a great place to stay and worth every penny.

If ever there was heaven on earth, this is the place. In utter honesty, the charm, supreme privacy, total relaxation, and consistent pampering will leave me with a vacation i will never ever forget. This is definitely the place in which nature surrounds you with love and protection!! The proprieters and staff were very personable, and helpful. I was really touched when i had arrived early for check inn on June 8th and the housekeeper went out of her way to make me a pot of mint tea and the proprieter sat down and talked to me as a human being. Talk about class. The breakfasts were 5 star and beyond. Everything from home-baked muffins and breads, freshly squeezed orange juice, fresh coffee and the eye-catcher the presentation and arrangement of flower sprigs resting lightly on each entree daily. Enough can not be said about this "hidden sanctuary". The proprieters do their utmost to make ones' stay a little bit of heaven that will impress your inner fiber of your inner being for your next vacation to Cayou Cove. They most definitely have my vote!!!!!!!!!!!!

Charles & Valerie know what you want before you do! They have created the most charming, beautiful, and elegantly appointed B & B we have ever stayed in. We arranged to stay a week in celebration of our 25th wedding anniversary and wish we could have stayed much longer. Our stay in the Gardener's Cottage was delightful, beginning each day with one of Charles' outstanding breakfasts. Fresh fruit from their organic garden, entree dishes prepared with local ingredients, beautifully presented to us in our room, and at the time of our choosing. The cottage is complete with everything a guest could possibly desire. A bed so comfortable you don't want to get up, but you do because breakfast is on the way! Private hot tub on your porch for a soak after a day of hiking, adirondak chairs and table at the water's edge for relaxing, a shower for two in a charming bath setting complete with luxurious robes and slippers, a fire prepared each day for you that truly only takes one match to set, outstanding daily housekeeping, and excellent wines and cheese for an afternoon delight. The organic garden tended by Brad is a delight for all your senses. A visit in the morning is a must - it is gorgeous! And don't forget to ask which veggies you may choose for your own meals and snacks. Charles & Valerie will take care of it all for you. There wasn't a single thing we asked for, or needed, that they were not able to help us with. They are delightful hosts and truly enjoy what they are doing.
