We stayed one night recently and really enjoyed the privacy and spaciousness of this studio, in easy walking distance of the main Greytown attractions. Friendly and helpful hosts. Would definitely stay again.

I am really disappointed THAT WE ONLY STAYED ONE NIGHT. Shy Cottage was absolutely lovely, the wee deck out the back amongst the trees, sunshine, birds singing, the friendly cat! The bed was super comfortable, the linen was gorgeous, everything down to the complimentary toiletries was exquisite. We highly recommend Shy Cottage, and will definitely be back.

Great little guest house.....fresh smelling rooms, good bathroom with clean and fresh linens.....easy parking for your car, and a walk along the main street to at least 5 different restaurants.....breakfast along the main street...lots of choice..... Easily accessible from the Wellington ferry terminal (perhaps a 45 minute drive through the mountains)....nothing bad or low quality....we would certainly go back here again.....

A delightful stay! Beautifully appointed, we didnโ€™t find ourselves looking for anything. Beautiful linen and superb comfy bed. Close to everything you could need. I never knew Greytown was so beautiful. This accommodation was outstanding with fantastic friendly host. If you like trout fishing thereโ€™s a great river not too far away. Itโ€™s nothing but stars from us ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ
