Peaceful and Beautiful
A wonderful anniversary weekend! The kitchen had all we needed so we enjoyed cooking all of our meals. The cottage was incredibly CLEAN!! The bed was comfy and the views from the front porch spectacular. We preordered cinnamon rolls and they were AMAZING so don’t miss out on those. Absolutely would return and stay again in the Knox cottage. Perfect and lovely.
