If I rent on a monthly basis, can I receive mail at the cottage?
A: No. There is no mailbox at the cottage. You will have to contact the local post office regarding box rental.
Are the cottages handicapped accessible?
A: Not really. A wheelchair can definitely access both the upstairs and downstairs cottages. However, the bathrooms are not equipped with handrails and there is a tub in each bathroom, which does not meet the standards for handicap accessibility. Please note there is a fairly large step to enter the downstairs cottage. We were able to lift a wheelchair into the cottage, but again, there is no ramp to meet the standards for handicap accessibility.
Will the security deposit alone hold a reservation?
A: No. We require 50% the total rental amount to make a reservation and the final 50% is due 14 days prior to arrival. (Total Rental Amount = Rental Fees + Tax + Deposit)
What are the differences in how the cottages are laid out?
A: The upstairs for a futon in the L.R. that folds down into a full size bed. The downstairs cottage has a large Master Bedroom that can be easily converted to a Banquet Room by raising the Murphy Bed into the closet. See below for specific layouts:
DOWNSTAIRS DOWNSTAIRS (with all beds in use)
What is the purpose of the Banquet Room and what does it look like?
A: When both cottages are rented by the same group it allows space for everyone to eat in one location. It has seating for 12 people. The Murphy bed in the master closes into a closet and Banquet tables and chairs are available for use as a Banquet Room. See pictures in our photo gallery for a better visual.
