Family Vacation by Colleen W. 07/31/2022
Our family vacation at By The Moon beat all of our expectations. The location was private. The home was well stocked with games and the water toys were enjoyed by all. Our family loved the property and our grandchildren hope we can return in a couple of years. Jayne’s Cottages took great care of us.
