This colonial oak and chestnut house is very private and cozy. After a total restoration, it was even featured in This Old House Magazine. The cottage can sleep five people. It has two bedrooms, and a sleeping loft, modern heat and air conditioning and the conveniences of a modern kitchen and bathroom. (Look for the photos showing the house as it was prior to restoration in 1999.) Located at the end of a long and beautiful tree lined drive, the cottage sits on 50 rolling acres of woods and pasture. Enjoy the quiet and solitude. Sit by a campfire. Walk along the wooded paths. Stay for as long as you like. (One guest spent the entire winter and wrote a screenplay.) For breakfast, we stock your pantry and refrigerator with locally grown and produced foods whenever possible. You can prepare breakfast at your leisure. Included are local eggs, fruits and juices along with a variety of cereals, pastries, yogurts, teas, coffee etc. The kitchen has a microwave, a cook-top, coffee maker, full size refrigerator and freezer and all the pots, pans, utensils and spices one would need. There is also a Weber grill with charcoal.

Wow! Where to start? Kind and gracious hosts, super clean home with loads of personality, fridge absolutely stuffed with great breakfast food, deer, turkeys and horses in the early morning mist, curled up with hot coffee around the fire pit with my family, so limp from relaxation in the wonderfully quiet country air that I had to take a Viagra just to get out of bed in the morning. Two days and nights in this gorgeous country, made us forget all about our homes in idyllic San Diego. Forgot an item and it was sent back to us at the owners expense. This is a classy place with classy innkeepers! If you don't love it, write me and I'll refund your money myself. And no, we're not related to anyone there!

Just experienced a most enjoyable overnight in this absolutely "made for a movie set" bed and breakfast and it was a MUST RETURN event! Conditions were a frigid cold but very bright and sunny day and the delightful classical music was playing as we entered the adorable cabin! Hardwood floors covered with orientals made for a very inviting entry. The attention to detail with the renovation of this very historic cabin was exceptional and the ONLY regret was the 2 way fireplace (living room to kitchen) did not have either a wood stove or an electric fireplace in the opening. That would have been 100% perfect! PS: Loved the old door covering the refrigerator and the cozy beds with old quilts, very warm and comfy!

This cottage was exactly what we were looking for! It was private, quaint, clean and cozy with just enough space full of beautifully curated antiques, quilts and carpets. Horses just outside the front door and with vineyards nearby as well as Luckett's seasonal flea market. We watched a storm roll in from the front stoop, and fed the horses in the morning. We can't wait to go back later this fall. Thank you Ted and Gina for a great weekend!
