    Amazing!!!

    Suzan is absolutely an amazing person!!! Property was clean and well kept, cabin is spectacular!! We spent the evening by the fire talking with Suzan and enjoyed a glass of wine conversation. Could not have asked for a better honeymoon weekend. We will definitely keep it touch and be back again! Ps. Hope our review is good enough for your granddaughter...lol

    Perfect All Season Getaway

    My husband and I and our dogs enjoyed a lovely weekend in the cottage. It is aptly named Fairy Tale. So charming with its homey decor, beautiful rock fireplace and soaking tub in the bathroom. The fairy lights coming on at dusk was an especially magical touch. We intended to get out more than we did but found ourselves so comfortable we mostly stayed in, except for a few little romps in the snow with the dogs. We cooked all of our meals in the well appointed kitchen. Slept well in the comfy bed with its good linens. One night we saw a fox right outside the bedroom’s sliding glass door, dark against the snow. We look forward to staying in Suzan’s cottage again in summer or fall to enjoy the surrounding areas hiking trails and do a little fishing. Sandra Vanlandingham

    Lovely cabin

    The owner/host greeted us and made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. I wish all hosts/hostesses were this nice and accomdating at every place we stay! My kids are convinced that the cabin has a friendly ghost as well. An hour after they gave up trying to start a fire in the fireplace the fire magically sprung to life and started on it's own.

    Absolutely Wonderful Stay!!

    Our stay at the Fairy Tale Cottage was the perfect place for a relaxing girls weekend getaway!! The cottage is a beautiful home set back in, off the road, surrounded by tall pine trees. The cottage itself is nicely furnished, very clean and fully stocked with everything you need for an enjoyable stay. The owner, Suzan, is the most wonderful and gracious hostess and we truly enjoyed our time visiting with her. We all agreed that God had truly blessed us with our stay here and look forward to returning again soon!! :)

    Just as described.

    We had a pleasant anniversary weekend. The cabin is great. Everything was just as described. We spent a lot of time playing games at the kitchen table. The view is wonderful. The property was very green due to plenty of rain. It poured one night while we were there. The bed is comfortable. Plenty of hot water. We would enjoy staying again and maybe bring some friends.
