Inquire about Your Stay

Due to the unpredictable timing of birth, all stays are scheduled with contracts and wider time windows than a typical bed and breakfast.  We take about one family a month depending on length of stay and expected dates.  We do take last minute bookings based on availability.

 

  • Stays are $550 a night.

  • Minimum Stay is 5 nights unless booking last minute available nights. 

  • Maximum stay is 60 nights depending on availability. 

  • The Cottage accommodates two adults and two children (up to 2 years old).

We look forward to hearing from you.
