“I cannot say enough GREAT things about this place and the service. We got to see the leaves change and all the little details at The Cottages made our room feel like its own little cabin in the woods! ”

Home Away from Home

“Over my 30-plus year writing career, I wrote travel reviews and stayed at many high-end hotels whose room rates were, at times, $1,200 per night. I am being honest when I say that we enjoyed Red Cottage every bit as much as we did the luxury hotels I often wrote about.”

-Gail L. /TripAdvisor
