Guest Reviews

Wonderful week by Sammy R. 07/20/2020
We loved the cottage and thought it was beautiful, big, clean and lots of fun. The concierge team, Trinity and the cottage owner were all very nice, accessible and helpful. We have had a wonderful week and a good experience.
Loved every minute of our stay. by Toni A. 09/17/2019
The cottage was incredible on its own but the attention to detail and cleanliness of the place made it even more remarkable. Our guests were in awe of the place and couldn't stop raving about it the entire time. There was room for everyone and more than enough space to roam around, as well as fun outdoor activities. Loved every minute of our stay.
Perfect getaway! by Michel 08/21/2018
The cottage was exactly as in pictures. The service and response from [our House Manager] was amazing. We could not have asked for a better cottage vacation!
Beautiful by Guest 07/12/2018
The cottage was beautiful - the house as well as the surroundings. It was perfect for our family gathering. Our experience with Jayne's Cottages was very professional.
