We loved this charming cottage! It’s absolutely gorgeous. Amenities were described accurately and even had more than listed. Bedrooms were small but the rest of the cottage had a TON of space with several seating areas, both inside and out. It was perfect for a single family. I highly recommend!

We are so happy to hear this! Thanks, Heather. It was our pleasure hosting you!

This was a great spot for a long weekend with my husband and two young kids. The kids loved the bunk bed and having the option for a “sleepover” with their parents in the same room. The location was also great - easy to get into the nearby towns as needed but quiet when we wanted downtime. Also loved the decor! You could tell a lot of time and energy went into the updates. We would highly recommend staying here!

Thank you, Sierra! Your kind feedback means so much to our owners and team. We are so happy you and your family enjoyed your stay and we hope to host you again sometime!

Koselig Cottage was my favorite of all airbnb stays. It was absolutely pristine while having an incredibly warm feel.
Nice quality everything - from linens to dishware, furniture & decor, enjoyable touches such as the fireplace & record player with many records to choose from, fully stocked with all the things you need, 
excellent and quite kind communication, flexible, as well as a lovely welcome gift for stay!
I will stay at Koselig Cottage again & again!

Thank you, Christina! It was our pleasure to work with and host you! We would be so happy to have you return. Thank you for your kind feedback to our team and owners!

This place was ABSOLUTELY gorgeous! I’m pretty sure we were the first guests to ever stay here. When you hear “newly remodeled” you never know what you’re going to get, but let me tell you this place is pristine! Brand new! The style and decor was perfect! A cozy relaxing farmhouse style decor. Loved the fireplace and the record player. We didn’t use any of the supplies provided as we were out and about the whole time but they have thought of EVERYTHING! Fully stocked kitchen - you could make a gourmet meal here, a sound machine, so many outdoor games and supplies (bug spray, beach towels, bikes, etc.) even the soap was on par! My ONLY critique is the patio door in the main bedroom has this awful persistent howling/humming sound with the slightest wind. It should hopefully be an easy fix, but it wouldn’t stop me from booking again. I’ll cross my fingers it’s fixed the next time I book, because I WILL be back! And will spend more time at the adorable cottage! ?

Hi Lynn, We are so excited to hear this! Thank you for all your kind feedback and taking the time to share your experience with us. This means so much to our owners and team! We sure hope to host you again!
