Quaint cottage in the mountains. Beautiful surroundings, hydrangea, hummingbirds, and of course the Blue mountains.
Stayed in the middle of summer, so days were warm enough, but the nights were sweater cool, just right.
Walking distance to Coffee House, and walking trails all around.
Looking forward to returning for a longer stay.
