We love to greet our guests and show them the many features of the cottage that make your experience easy and memorable. We leave you alone to enjoy the space but we are only minutes away if needed. We welcome your pets but please note that very tiny dogs may be able to squeeze through the deer fencing or under the gate. It has never happened but just in case be warned. We also have eagles, raccoons and an owl around the property they may take a small animal. Please do not leave pets alone in the cottage to run around. We can provide a crate if needed. Please remember this is not their home and in a strange place may get distressed if you leave as they don't know when or if you are coming back. We don't want any animal to be upset in our home and we thank you in advance for your co operation in this matter.
We have a great well on our property with the best water cool and crystal clear with the added bonus of our new state of the art reverse osmosis system. We recycle most everything on island and grow lots of fresh organic produce. We even have a free store to recycle almost anything that other people can use. Our library is new and a wonderful facility for films books information. Locals are always glad to help people enjoy all the wonders of this hidden gem we call home.
We want our guest to enjoy the care and love that we have put into our little paradise and we only ask they are respectful and leave the cottage clean on leaving. We love having well behaved dogs visit with mum and dad. We also ask that guests smoke outside in our gazebo lounge and respect that we are in a forest and it can be dry, so utmost care must be taken to avoid fires.
My Partner Don and I designed and did much of the work ourselves to build our cottage. Don drives semi,s and B trains and loves vintage cars. He is also the island boat mechanic. I love cooking and quilting but mostly at the moment I have been helping put together a new 60 ft x 30 ft workshop for Don and also landscaping the garden. Life on the island is very busy.
