Within 20 minutes of arriving at HillTop Cottage with my 7 year-old son, I already knew we'd be returning next year for an even longer duration.
The cottage was absolutely precious and had everything needed to have a comfortable stay. The property was absolutely beautiful with wild and cultivated flowers, greenhouses and gardens full of organic vegetables everywhere; a rustic chicken coop with dozens of laying hens offered the opportunity to collect eggs; a large, old barn was home to three beautiful cattle...one, Mabel, just two months old.
Down through the lush, old and new growth forest, behind the cottage was a great pond, complete with beaver dam, ducks, an abundance of frogs and dragonflies of all sizes. The forest was carpeted in beautiful mosses, ferns and several varieties of interesting fungi. At night, stars peppered the sky and coyotes sang a few songs with the crickets. By day, butterflies, crickets, locusts, birds... We were even lucky enough to catch a peek at one of the shy resident cats, Georgie, spying on us from the pumpkin patch.
All of this, within ten minutes or so of two large and very beautiful, white sand beaches... and the owners/hosts...well, what can I say? Absolutely wonderful people. Karl took my son under his wing and had him collecting eggs and milking a cow the day after we arrived. He even got him to eat kale, fresh from the garden. Monika was chatty, funny and the kind of person you feel you've known for years even if it's only been a few hours. Together, they are the kind of people you hope to be lucky enough to have as friends and I know we will keep in touch. My son and I were both teary-eyed when it was time to pack up and go.
I simply cannot put into words the overall happy, peaceful, stress-free feeling of being there. It's a way of living that one dreams about. Five stars isn't enough.
Very peaceful and comforting!
Very clean, well kept and the hosts were super friendly!
