We had a delicious meal at the Cottage. Three couples, 4 different meal choices and all were excellent. Lunch is served along with breakfast so the choices were amazing. I had a cheddar cheese and green chili omelet that was the best I've ever had!

Due to sad circumstances, the cottage closed for awhile. All the locals I've talked to were so excited about it's reaping. I've been there 3 times, and it is awesome! Same wonderful, flavorful food and same great service as before!
