We spent a delightful four nights at the Swartz house and enjoyed every minute. Having the entire cottage was unique and so comfortable. It is beautifully decorated with antiques and has amazing views of the River and grounds. Virginia had fresh flowers from the grounds around the house. The bed was soft and comfortable with skylights above the bed for...

We rented the cottage for a reunion with old friends. The 2 bedrooms and 2 baths gave us our private space. The kitchen and dinette are the perfect size and the kitchen large enough for us to cook together. Virginia thinks of everything! When we arrived there was milk, ice cream and half and half in the refrigerator. She had...

What a well appointed cottage!!!! It was such a pleasant surprise to find such a gem! We travel a lot and have stayed in many places across our great nation as well as abroad...but we have yet to find a home away from home such as this! Virginia was the perfect hostess. A Virginia native familiar with the area. Her...

My husband and I stayed for two nights in this very charming cottage! The proprietor, Virginia, only books one party at a time, so you aren't sharing the space with strangers. Everywhere you turn you will see how lovingly the cottage has been decorated: understated and tasteful. Did you forget something? No worries because Virginia has stocked the kitchen and...

My husband found this place on Trip Advisor. We loved everything about it. So quiet, so cozy, so private, comfortable, clean and so much more. The very best part of the Jacob Swartz House is the tiny screened in deck off of the bedroom - with a view of the river. The kitchen has everything. We were there for two...

We stayed at the Jacob Swartz House in October 2012 and were delighted with the setting and the service we received from Virginia. The cottage is like a home from home and everything you could possibly need is provided. The terrace is home to many birds, including humming birds and cardinales, not to mention the squirrels who were stealing acorns...

We spent two nights and needed another full day just to explore this historic building and the property it sits on. Virginia has made sure that anything you could possibly want is there, anticipating every need (beer mugs in the freezer for the beer she put in the fridge, CDs and DVDs, drinks, books and magazines, brochures, and everything you...

My wife and I had the pleasure of spending 5 nights at the Jacob Swartz House in early August 2011. From he moment that we drove down the long country road and were warmly greeted by Virginia, we knew that we were in for a special experience!. Her lovely home and adjoining guest house are surrounded by old trees and...

Hard to find a place suitable for traveling with a 3month old, but Jacob Swartz house was perfect. Hidden between a corn field and the river, it couldn't have a prettier setting. Virginia is a charming and gracious hostess. Despite sweltering July temps, we could not have been more comfortable.

This place is beyond a B&B! My sister and I stayed here for 3 days/nights in late October-early Nov 2010. We were very pleasantly surprised at the coziness of the cottage, the roominess, the cleanliness, the stocked pantry, the amenities too many to list here! Virginia is a MOST gracious host, bringing wonderful breakfasts every morning, and delicious desserts every...
