“Peaceful and relaxing retreat”
Reviewed 13 February 2013 for a stay in February 2013

The owners of this property have truly thought about everything to make your stay stress free. We rented this wonderful cottage for 6 days in February instead of staying at a local inn for a wedding. The location was perfect for getting around to everything on the island. In truth, even though the island is beautiful, I could have spent the entire stay curled up on the couch with the gas fireplace keeping me warm, staring at the beautiful views! This is a great place for families, girls weekend away or a romantic retreat! We will definitely be making a return trip (even in the winter).
