“Me and my fiancé had such a great stay at the cottage. It looked exactly like the pictures and everything was as it said it would be. It was close enough to all the places we wanted to go and was a great place to come back to for the evening. I just wish we could have stayed longer. We will definitely be staying again in the future.” – Alycia S.
“By the Side of the Road is a hidden gem! My darling cottage was well appointed and through a simple gesture, the personal “Welcome” sign made me feel noticed and appreciated. In the past, I have stayed at another very nice B & B, but trying to justify the more than triple jump in price, I was looking for someplace that could be a frequent place to stay in the valley, that felt comfortable and safe for solo travel and most of all, sat in a serene setting both indoors and out. The innkeepers were extremely responsive as well. I cannot wait to return for a longer stay. Happy New Year!” – Melinda Green

“”A romantic getaway spot. Elegant accommodations. There were many little extra touches in the room that enhanced the ambiance. Lovely view of the pond from the private porch. We highly recommend this place!”
“The porch alone would make this stay special – having morning coffee looking at the pond full of yellow water lilies, butterflies, and listening to birds singing in the trees makes this a wonderful place. The friendly cat was just a pure bonus. The room is exceptional and the shower something we will try to copy in our own home.”
“Perfect location, beautiful accommodations, quiet and private, cordial hosts, and my granddaughter and I enjoyed a peaceful and relaxing …much needed retreat. Will definitely recommend to anyone traveling in the area!””
