Cottages on River Road was a great place for us. It was extremely clean, lovely staff, delicious continental breakfast, and the nightly fire pit to roast marshmallows brought back childhood memories. Unfortunately, it is right by the road, and for us (who live in a very quiet place).. we had to get use to that. They did provide ear plugs,... More

My primary criteria are always 1) quiet enough to sleep, and 2) clean. Everything else is a bonus. The cottages are quiet enough, considering that they are next to a road that is not busy at night. There is a sound wall that does the job well. The room we had was wonderfully well kept and clean with appointments in... More

Clean, comfortable and cozy. Very friendly, knowledgable staff, lovely breakfast. I especially enjoyed the classical music playing during the breakfast hours. It rained during our one day stay but we walked Armstrong Woods anyway. If you're a light sleeper the traffic noise may be a bit of a disturbance.

My wife and I stayed here with my adult daughter, originally picked this place as they had a cottage with two bedrooms for a very reasonable price. Turned out to be a wonderful place for the 3 nights we were there. It's made up of several separate cabins that surround a beautiful fenced courtyard. Our cabin was very clean with... More

We loved the cottages. Our cottage was charming with a lot of personal touches. The breakfast buffet was great and the staff was very helpful and efficient. We felt relaxed and would highly recommend the cttages to our friends.

Beautiful place!! My fiancé and I have come here a few times and it's so cute! There's a fire pit every night with s'mores and a sweet woman who I think is the owner- very attentive! They are pet friendly. We brought our German Shepard puppy, they even gave a little doggy care package with a water bowl and a... More

Ha Ha their picture is in darkness so I was wondering what it would be like and it was cute as can be. Lovely little cottages with a beautiful paved garden walk through the center. The bed was comfy and the bathroom was clean and updated. This was a great deal. I would recommend the place. There are stairs and... More

Such a clean little cabin! Spotless! I was in #11. I did have to remove the air freshener though. In such a small space it was overwhelming. The bed was very comfortable, the linens fresh. An extra throw at the foot of the bed helped when the night turned cold. They offer a great breakfast in the morning. My room... More

Stayed a night but wished it could have been longer. Everything about this property ticks the excellent mark. Most enjoyable was the evening campfire opportunity to relax and mix with the other guests. The owners/ hosts made us feel very welcome and comfortable in such a pretty setting. A place to be remembered as a highlight of our USA road... More
