“Plenty of space for 2, clean and well equipped, but not cluttered”
Reviewed 4 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

The cottage America has adequate space for 2 people having a good sized sitting room,bedroom,bathroom and kitchen. It is well equipped, without being cluttered, and is cosy with the option of an open fire. It only lacks a dishwasher but all washing up equipment is provided.
The hosts live nearby; they are friendly, helpful and obliging without being intrusive. It is good value and worthy of a 5 star rating.

“Nice and quiet place.”
Reviewed 12 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We have just had a wonderful stay with beautiful views from the cottage. Very cottage in nice grounds with some wonderful walks around it. Heather & Stuart great hosts, helping as needed. Everything you need is in the cottage and the King size bed was great. Best nights sleep we have had when visiting holiday homes.

Fully Recommend....

“Brilliant place to stay”
Reviewed 8 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

This was our second holiday in America Cottage and we just love it! Peaceful, relaxing and a stunning location just far enough away from the hustle and bustle but within easy reach of the Moray Coast and all the beautiful scenery the area has to offer.
We appreciated the warm welcome from Stu and Heather who are always extremely helpful; and the flowers, shortbread, tea, coffee and milk are very thoughtful touches.
The cottage provides everything you could need and is so clean and comfortable - the bed in particular is so good you want to take it home!
We love watching the deer from the windows, something we certainly don't get back here.
All in all this is a great place to stay - you can't go wrong if you choose it for your break.

“Beautiful cottage in a lovely location”
Reviewed 28 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Beautiful and very comfortable cottage, ideal for exploring the Moray Firth and Speyside. Hosts very helpful and welcoming, on hand if you need anything but will give you all the space you need. I left a drawerful of clothes behind and they were very obliging in forwarding it on without quibble. Plug-in router booster might help wifi signal but that's my only criticism! Will be happy to visit again.
