Gated and Private. Meticulously maintained 65+ acre private retreat with flowers and wildlife too numerous to mention. Over 3 miles of private hiking trails, many leading to fantastic vistas of the surrounding mountains, volcano and lake.

The cottage is ideal for 1-4 persons looking for a private and tranquil setting to serve as a base for exploring the area or simply wanting to get away from it all.
