The 3-BR, 3-BA Kelly House of Wild Rose Cottages was a smart choice for our 5-person family group. Communications throughout were great with Ann Hayes; it was quite refreshing to not be given lotsof rules, policies, and dictates regarding deposits, check-in/-out procedures, and guest behavior. She was always willing to offer advice on things to do (though much of it was the typical majority advice). As others have said, the view and the distance from the commercial clutter make the locale worth the drive up the hill from town. The location is a short drive to the Wynn Nature Center Trails and we saw a moose en route.
The property was well-kept and had new or recent furniture and supplies. Kitchen supplies were plentiful, though some were leftovers from previous guests (but of the long-shelf-life kind).
An added bonus was being given a discounted rate upon checkout. Even at full rate ($250/night in summer '08), it was a good value.
Would agree with the minor demerits for clutter/knick-knacks and owners' dogs. The latter were friendly to the point of being slightly pesky, so you have to be at least dog-tolerant.
