About Babbling Brook cottage:
The cascading stream and waterfall view make this cottage the perfect retreat.
The cottage overlooks a beautiful stream cascading down the mountain. The water cascades down the waterfall,then down the brook over moss covered rocks, creating wonderful sounds of rushing water as it flows behind the cottage. A gas log stove will keep you warm on a brisk fall evening or winter day. Cable TV, a Video Library, and Wii game system will make your stay enjoyable.

Don't let the lower rates fool you. We have very NICE accommodations, refreshingly cleanly kept and most of our guests turn into repeat guests! Many have been coming for many years/several times a year!

The master bedroom has a glass door that opens onto the covered
porch perched above the brook. You can see the waterfall from this covered porch/open deck combo and it's perfect for watching the squirrels play or birds sing.

*The living room has a warm cozy feel that makes you feel that you are at your own personal home away from home. Babbling Brook cottage is filled with handcrafted furnishings that will make your stay enchanting.

2 Comfy bedrooms - 2 full baths - full kitchen & laundry area - sleeps 4.
The Living room closes off and has a queen sofa sleeper and full bath plus an enchanting gas fire will warm you on the cool nights.

*** Kitchen and bedrooms freshly remodeled in 2017! ***
This cottage has three covered porches/decks where you can entertain, cook out on the grill, or just sit back and enjoy the day.
