The Stone cottage is on a one acre strip of land and is the perfect romantic escape. It includes everything you need for an extended stay. Complete with a full kitchen and one and a half baths this cozy cottage is the place to relax! Let your cares drown away as you take a hot jacuzzi bath and enjoy the sunset. The price includes a full country breakfast served every morning in a basket at your door. We also have a second property called the Loft. The loft has a pull in garage with three full rooms and a bath. It has two bedrooms with plenty of room to add cots in the other rooms. The living room also has a pull out bed couch.
Tobie was raised on an Amish farm here in Ohio. He decided to leave the Amish and left home on his eighteenth birthday. Martha was raised Mennonite and while we appreciate alot of the good things we were taught we left the Mennonite church three years ago. We now attend Freedom Fellowship where we are quite active in children's church and in mentoring. Tobie also owns his own business called Cornerstone Masonry. We love family and realize the importance of building lasting relationships.
Martha Swartzentruber purchased this cottage in 2012
When we climbed the hill to see this property it was the view that took our breath away. Then Tobie spotted a dip in the pasture outback where he envisioned a pond. We fell in love with it right away because of the country and the wide open space. We still dream of putting a pond in the pasture and putting more stone cottages around it.
We planned and built our brick home in 2003. A few years later we purchased the cottage where Martha's sister lived till 2012. In 2005 Martha's mother moved out in a property next to ours. It was in 2012 that we built the big brick shop and decided to put a loft on top of it. Now we are so happy that we get to share this beautiful setting with guest who want to relax and get away from the pressures of life. Nothing relaxes you quite like taking in an awesome quiet country view or enjoying a majestic sunset on a warm summer evening.
My husband and I wanted a simple quiet getaway to rest and be together and that is exactly what we were blessed with at the stone cottage. The cottage was VERY clean, welcoming, and had a wonderful peaceful atmosphere. Each morning breakfast was delivered to our door. We were expecting a hotel type breakfast (cereal, boiled eggs etc.) . We were so wrong...delicious, home cooked breakfast that was not only delicious but presented in such a way that we deemed the chef a food artist! Lots of details such as fishing poles and a picnic basket to use for a hike at nearby waterfalls were provided. We stayed in January so it was to cold to use them but it was a great extra to have been provided with. Martha was great, helpful, available for questions (but not intrusive), and responded quickly. She really did go above and beyond and her first class hosting skills were much appreciated.
We did not do much cooking but that was not due to an ill equipped kitchen. Everything was available to prepare any meal. The only thing I would add to the arsenal would be a tea pot.
For some reason i could not get warm all weekend (my husband was comfortable though) I was pleasantly surprised to find a cozy snuggling blanket in the bedroom closet. It smelled freshly washed too!
Sleeping at the stone cottage is divine! The temperature is perfect for sleeping, it super quiet, and since it is in the basement ( (but don't worry it doesn't look like a basement with its decor, cozy twinkle lights, and attached master bath with a first class shower and Jacuzzi tub) there is only a small tiny window with a curtain which doesn't allow the sunlight to awaken you before you want. The twinkle lights make it super cozy We are early risers and actually slept until right at 8 am.
This rental is great for a couple!
The cabin was very clean, the breakfasts were amazing and we are planning on returning in the Spring or Summer. Everything was as advertised, great get away.
This cabin was absolutely wonderful. My wife and I enjoyed a winter weekend getaway for her birthday and could not have been happier with everything. The cottage is beautiful and has everything you need for a stay. Breakfast was delightful both days and our hosts even brushed the snow off our car for us in the morning! We highly recommend staying here and were so impressed that we immediately began discussing when we could return.
We only got to stay a couple nights for our honeymoon but we have already talked about wanting to stay again in the spring or summer. The cottage was so relaxing and quaint. We especially loved the breakfasts that was delivered in a basket on our door step. They were delicious! Can't wait to go back and hopefully stay longer!
Just a short note to express our thanks for the time we spent in the Cottage. It was so nice, restful and peaceful. The country side is gorgeous. Martha made amazing breakfast every morning, delivered to the door. We are early risers and breakfast usually does not arrive until 9:00 am.. But I text her and ask if it was not too much of an inconvenience could it be brought by 8:00 am.. She was so complementary, it was there.... It was the perfect getaway for me and my husband. Mother nature added a special bonus with the snow.... Thoroughly enjoyed our time spent in the Cottage. sincerely Eddie and Diane Tarrant - Douglas, Ga
We greatly enjoyed our time at the cottage! Homemade breakfast delivered every morning was a HUGE perk! Would recommend this cottage and it's owners to everyone!
