Eric and I celebrated our 13th anniversary last Friday at this
adorable cottage about 20 minutes away from our house.
All of the pictures are from my cell phone. I took my camera but forgot the camera card.
Eric said that might not have been such a bad thing. :)
I had seen pictures of the cottage on the website...but when we pulled down the lane
and saw the cottage nestled in this beautiful wooded setting, we were speechless.
( I may have even started clapping!)
The cottage is a recently restored stone house that was built in the 1700's.
It sits in a secluded spot beside a beautiful creek.
The rear shaded stone patio overlooks the creek.
We could have sat in those comfy chairs forever. Really.
When we walked into the cottage, there was a boquet of lilacs on the kitchen table.
Lilacs are my favorite...and you can imagine how the sweet smell filled the entire place.
Everywhere we looked, the cottage was filled with little touches of love.
Eric and I enjoyed looking through journals of all
the different couples who have stayed at the cottage.
Couples from California, Texas, Florida, Canada, Australia to name a few have enjoyed
this little romantic spot. Many of the couples wrote such heartfelt words. What a gift
this place has been to so many people.
Eric and I made dinner in the little kitchen. We both agreed it was one of our favorite meals.
I had everything put together, we just needed to bake it and cook the asparagus.
We had cheesecake for dessert and our favorite champagne.
Everything here is so quiet and peaceful.
We opened the windows so we could hear the creek.
No t.v. or computers...just talking and relaxing.
I really hope we get to go back again someday.

If you live in the area or are passing by...I highly recommend staying here...
especially if you are celebrating an anniversary. ;)
