Welcome to Storybook Cottage

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
