Storybook Cottage with a View!

Cottage -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 2
Ghent, West Virginia
The Storybook Cottage is a fairytale-inspired tiny crooked house. The Cottage is located directly behind our house - which is in the process of being converted into a castle.

Interaction with guests
You will see us on the property. We have six children, ranging in age from two to sixteen. Don't worry- they will not bother you at all- but you will probably see them outside playing. If you need anything, I am a stay-at-home mom and am easily accessible during the day. I can frequently be found in the kitchen, our library or the greenhouse. We dearly love to show folks around our place and answer any questions you may have about our home, gardens, animals and/or the area.
