About the Cottage Rental
The cottage is a cozy 1 room, 1 bath, queen size sleeper sofa with a thicker mattress and additional memory foam mattress topper for extra comfort. A camping cot is available for a 3rd person. There is a counter area with microwave and small refrigerator. We offer an assortment of instant coffee with non-dairy creamer and sweeteners, plus tea to choose from. We try to do our part to save the planet so the eating utensils are made from plants instead of petroleum, and our paper plates are microwave safe and compostable. Glass bowls and plates are also available. Please help us to conserve water and electricity by letting us know when you want towels and bedding changed.
