March 20, 2015: A wonderful repeat guest sent this note today and I had to post it:
"Can't wait to get there. For me, it's turned into a sanctuary of laughter and healing and friendship and...ugh. I just love it there. It's a very special place...." Shannon S. - Seattle.
It's perhaps the "ugh" in that statement that best describes our Fiddlehead. It's hard to describe. For each of us, it's different. Many guests over the years have commented on healing and others on strengthening bonds, themes that are beginning to resonate. We could all use a little time away be it alone, with friends or family. Fiddlehead is a sanctuary for all that makes each of us unique. Whether you are purple, green, white, black, a little blue, female, male, somewhere in between, gay, straight, young, middle-age, old or ancient, 1 leg or 4 paws, you are a part of the growing Fiddlehead family the moment you arrive.
Fiddlehead Cottage is named for the abundance of natural ferns in the gardens & woods surrounding the cottage. Though its architecture is a nod to the past, the owner's renovation opened the layout and refreshed the decor with contemporary furnishings. The home features sumptuous furniture by Ralph Lauren, Room & Board plus original works of art, books and a high end kitchen. The 2000 square foot home is tucked into the woods in Union Pier on a private cul-de-sac, minutes from beaches.
Equipped with the latest technology including WIFI, HDTV 46' Sony Bravia w/ Blu-Ray & Bose surround sound, premium cable channel lineup & DVD library.
A 5-minute walk to the bakery and shops in Union Pier, just a few more minutes walk to the beach (3/4 mile), close to wineries, great restaurants, and antique stores. Private, yet close to everything...
