What guests are saying about Cottage Inn & Spa:

LOVELY AND PEACEFUL

“We stayed in the North Suite and fell in love the minute we got there. A great picture window overlooks the courtyard, where there is a lovely fountain. There is a fireplace and the decor is clean. Fresh coffee, wonderful baked goods in the morning over a beautifully set table–all wonderful! The staff took very good care of us, both in person and in attending to the details of our room. We wished we could have stayed longer.”

HOME AWAY FROM HOME

“Our second visit to the Inn was everything we had remembered. Three couples, our own courtyard, walkable to the Square, buns on the door in the morning…just perfect! We highly recommend this Inn. The owners are very accommodating, and see to your every need.”

PERFECT HOTEL IN A PERFECT PLACE

“This seems to be a well kept secret. It is tucked away on a residential street just a block from the center of town. You can easily walk to numerous restaurants. Our 2 friends and my husband and I had 2 first floor suites next to each other. Each had a full kitchen, living room and bedroom and private entrances from outside. Each morning we were welcomed with a basket of pastries hung on our doors at 8am and fresh juice, milk etc. was put into the refrigerator each day. So we relaxed our private balconies before going on wine tasting tours. The staff was very friendly and always helpful. Make reservations early!!”
