Our guests say the nicest things...
"Our family of four came from Cincinnati
for the week of Memorial Day and felt like we had stepped
back in time and were living in a quaint old house in a
great little town. The house is decorated beautifully!
We loved sitting on the front porch and the kids loved
the bikes and walking to the beach. You can definitely
feel the years of love in this little house."
-- The Addy Family
"We were absolutely THRILLED with our stay at
the Storybook Cottage. You have really outdone yourself
with the decorating. Everything says 'Welcome' in a
very special way and we feel like we are your honored
guests! We really enjoyed watching Mother Robin and her
four little ones in the flower pot on the front porch.
Mrs. Robin has been very busy caring for her little
ones all week. One baby left the nest just this
morning. This stay has been a blessing to us -- relaxing
and refreshing." -- Greenville, SC & Carmel, IN
"Thank you for sharing your home with us.
It truly is charming and cozy. We especially liked relaxing
on the porch after a fun and busy day at the beach. Our
four-year-old enjoyed all the 'kid' surprises you had
here for him. In fact, we all had a GREAT time here in
N.B., celebrating our 13th wedding anniversary!"
-- Joe and Donna St. Charles, IL
"We have so enjoyed your wonderful cottage and
this quiet little town. The bikes were great as were

hearts filled with love. A thank-you seems so small.
This was perfect." -- Hannah and Dave (and NO kids :)

making it possible for others to relax. Without even
knowing it, you have been a blessing to us."

"What a terrific getaway! This cottage is
wonderful -- GREAT decorating style! I will go home
with project to do now! Our ten-month-old also had
a great time and made himself right at home. Was

them! What a kid-friendly place! We had a relaxing,
yet fun, stay and appreciate so much you sharing
your home with us." -- Tom and Melissa (and Jake!)

the lovely decor, of course."

a place of great refreshment, rest, and nourishment
to body and soul." -- Sawyer, MI

daughter and son-in-law and grandson. We really had

comfortable that I had no problem settling in right
away. We will keep you in mind for future get-always
and will recommend you to all our friends."

"What a nice surprise to walk into your quaint
cottage. The whole N.B. experience was such a pleasant

was so enjoyable -- blueberry picking, swimming in the
lake, the South Bend chocolates. . . . .we loved it all!
Thanks for everything." -- The Manors
"We had a great time in your lovely Storybook
Cottage. The decorating is just my style! We had great
weather and lots of fun at the Ship and Shore week-end.

great food at Stray Dog, Brewster's, Rosie's and Casey's!
Thanks a million for more precious memories in our
family book!" -- Linda and Greg Davenport, Iowa

ourselves!" -- Joe and Cindi, Quad Cities, USA

at the end of our busy days." -- Mesa, AR
