Enjoy a UNIQUE stay in a beautiful cottage with all the modern amenities. Located right outside a popular state park, but only 2 minutes from restaurants and shops. You get the comfort of a resort, but with the privacy of your own home.

Der Wohnraum

This rental is for the ENTIRE COTTAGE!

Adorable 2 story, 1 bedroom/1 bathroom homes is not only unique, but includes all the comforts of a hotel but with the privacy of your own entire home. Perfect for 1-2 people, but possible to accommodate more depending on the situation.

Main floor: Kitchen + futon couch that turns into a full-size bed.
Upstairs: Queen bed (with a pillow top mattress cover) and full bathroom.

The cottage is located on a residential street in a wooded area right outside Castlewood State Park. It is located on a private street on 3 lots so you'll have a lot of privacy but you're not far from others. It's fully updated with A/C and and heat (all electric). Includes all furnishings, fully stocked kitchen, coffee maker, microwave, all utilities, linens and towels. It's walking distance to Castlewood State Park, which has walking and biking paths, playgrounds, picnic/BBQ areas, and even a beach along the Meramac River (which you can walk, bike or drive to in minutes).

The house grounds are very private with neighbors on the street below. Includes a paved front yard patio on one side, perfect for relaxing and nature watching, and a small fire pit and bench on the other side.

The upstairs has a queen sized bed, two closets and a large bathroom with a full size tub and shower, sink and toilet, and ample storage. Please note that there isn't a TV, but we do have high-speed internet service, perfect for Netflix, Hulu, etc. The windows are double-paned with a screen in between, allowing you to open them up to get the fresh air and hear the birds day and night.

Heat: base-floor heating
Air conditioning: Two window units (one upstairs and one downstairs).

It's very comfortable throughout the year, on all seasons. The rock foundation of the home keeps the house (at least the main floor) fairly cool naturally. There is also a ceiling fan upstairs for additional air circulation.

INCLUDES FREE high-speed internet and FREE WI-FI.

It is truly unique and different--you feel like you live far away from civilization although you're only a minute away from everything, including outlet shopping, stores, parks and restaurants only a few minutes away.

Available for an annual lease as well as short term rentals for a weekend getaway, including month-by-month, seasonal rentals and even holiday/vacation rentals and event rentals.

If you've ever wanted to get away without going far, this is it! And offered at a very reasonable price, priced well below area hotels. Please note that there is no washer/dryer or hook up (enjoy your stay at the house and leave the laundry for later).

No smoking (inside or anywhere on the property). No pets. No exceptions.

PLEASE NOTE: This is a very unique dwelling and experience. It is not your cookie cutter Hilton. The foundation of the home is 100+ years old, but of course, updated. The main floor flooring is a textured, stained concrete. This minimizes issues associated with having a dwelling located in a wooded area. The upstairs has vinyl flooring. There are area rugs throughout the cottage. The windows are double-paned with a screen between them. Because it's located in the woods, there is going to be natural exposure to bugs. The dwelling is routinely exterminated so dead bugs are to be expected. To minimize them coming into the house, please keep the screens down when you open the windows and make sure to keep the front door closed at all times and do not store any trash or food outside.

Price could have been a little cheaper for what you get!

Loved this little cottage, nestled on a wooded hillside, close to a beautiful state park. This is a great place for a quiet retreat, but it does not feel isolated since commercial areas are within a ten minute drive.

I got the pleasure of meeting Caroline upon check in. She gave us a tour and had everything set up for us. The cottage was a cozy little retreat tucked away from city life but a short drive to the state park and restaurants.

Good communication by host, not the best neighborhood, hard to find at night, not a bad value when looking at the price and the actual cottage.

The cottage is in a great location as a gateway for hiking in the beautiful Castlewood park. Although it is not a luxury house, it has all the necessary facilities for a convenient stay. Caroline was always available and provided very useful information whenever contacted. We would recommend for those who look for a quite place, close to parks and good facilities.

The cottage is cute. It is tiny, which is normally not a problem, however upon checkin the cleanliness was lacking. There were dead bugs on the floor, grit when walking barefoot, and the bathroom rug was dirty (when I flipped it to try to use it it was even dirtier with mud and some mystery spots). The futon was broken, which she warned us about, but it really put a damper on where to sit since there was now no couch. The downstairs had an odor-like multiple animals (not just dog). We realized quickly it was the blanket on the futon and removed it but it was hard to get past it. I tried running the AC on fan but realized the filter hadn't been cleaned... Possibly never. We rinsed the filter and that helped a bit, but we mostly had the windows open (screens down) the entire time downstairs, in 90 degree heat. Lastly, fleas/ticks. I woke up my first morning with horrible flea bites. I hoped it was a one-time occurrence, however each day they were worse. My husband and daughter both had ticks on their person. All in all, a very bad experience. I'm super grossed out thinking about it, and sick about the money we spent here.

Antwort von Caroline:
I'm sorry you did not have a good experience and will try to address each issue. During your 4 nights' stay, I didn't receive any communication with you about any problems. The only communication was a positive one when you checked in. I wish you had contacted me. Dead bugs: I recently had the cottage exterminated, and being in the woods, dead bugs are to be expected (better than the alternative). Futon: An earlier guest misaligned the futon, but I had it fixed and told you about it to be on the safe side. There's definitely no problem with using it or sitting on it. It's very sturdy. Blanket: I have multiple blankets stored throughout the cottage. They are cleaned between guests. Because I am pet-friendly, sometimes a lingering pet smell is inevitable. Robin brought a pet herself, so I would think it's something pet owners understand. If you needed another blanket, I have many stored there. Additional supplies are stored in the cottage, so I wish she had contacted me so I could have directed her. Cleaning: I have a professional company who cleans between guests, and all linens (and bath mats) are cleaned every time. She let me know that there was additional debris in the cottage after Robin's stay, but she mops between guests anyway, and I have come to expect it with guests with pets and children. Fleas: I wish I had been notified during the stay. We allow pets in the cottage, and I make a point to make sure that pet-owners have shots and flea protection current for their pets. I do have a flea spray in the cottage and even had done a defogger last month since I allow pets. Sadly, it's beyond my control when guests bring in unwanted bugs into the space. I will check it out again and address it. AC: I have two AC units, and have had no problems or complaints of keeping the cottage cool. Not sure why you wanted to run it on the fan mode instead of the regular cool mode. Overall, I keep communication open with my guests and ask them to contact me if there are any problems. I can't fix a problem if I'm not aware of it. Sorry your stay was not as expected.
