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.
