Charming Cottage, Fabulous setting

5 on May 10, 2017

We are regulars at the Ivy Cottage, Tree Tops, and Kathleen's Cottage! All these charming cottages are on adjoining properties, and all 5 STAR accommodations. This is a private, beautiful property, on the Piankatank river with amazing pier and swim area. Peacocks roam the area and will show off their beauty. Osprey, eagles, sea life. There is lot's to enjoy here! Travel down the beautiful tree lined drive and feast your eyes on the water view. Suzanne provides plentiful breakfast goodies to get your mornings started. Linens and towels are first class. Each place is lovingly appointed with taste and quality furnishings. You won't be disappointed!

Highest Quality in Deltaville

I stayed here once last year during the Stingray Point Regatta and it is an awesome place to relax, refresh and enjoy the peace and quiet after a day of competitive sailing out of Deltaville. Easy access, arrival and departure. The furnishings and amenities are first class. Everything you could ask for -- and more. Suzanne is a treat to do business with.Enjoyed it so much, I'm making reservations for two weekends this year!

What a wonderful place to escape the city and melt into the slow paced country life! This charming cottage has all the ammenities of home without all the duties.

For those who are not sure about a B&B, this is a great way to try it out because the house is completely YOURS ALONE!
