I was living for 4 weeks on the Cider House working on the University. I never regret my decision. Just a perfect place and location also for a longer stay.
Everything we desired plus more! So cozy, comfy, simple, stylish, modern yet antique. The apple tree and garden topped off the home-like atmosphere. Next to a park, grocery store, and town. Couple were very welcoming. We had fresh eggs, homemade bread and jam. I didn't want to leave. We enjoyed a windy night, a rainy day, sunshine and finally snow fall. This is a place built and designed for love of people. Memories were made with my husband and children here. We look forward to staying at any of this couples homes. Truly a wonderful experience because of the owner's!
I can't think of any other accommodations I have stayed in that have been more inviting and comfortable than this gem. Joleen and Steve really go out of their way to make you feel welcome, and because I stayed for three nights they even stocked the fridge with with all kinds of breakfast goodies. The location is perfect too, and it's just a stone's throw away from the best shopping and dining that this beautiful city has to offer. I am so glad that I came across this place, and I can't wait to experience it again!
I found this little gem on line, it was just as advertised. Small and cozy. I cannot say enough about the cottage or the owner, Joleen. From our first e-mail to phone conversations to meeting her, she was friendly and inviting. The cottage is lovely, very nicely furnished and decorated. When we arrived she had left snacks for us, chocolates and a nice bowl of nuts. Very much appreciated. As part of our stay, she had shopped for our breakfast which included fresh eggs from her chickens and home made jams and the best apple butter I have tasted. She also left a jar of pear jam for us to take home. The kitchen had everything we needed, we used the outside gas grill to cook dinner a couple of nights. Comfortable bed, nice linens in the bedroom and bath. Use of washer and dryer. I could go on and on, I loved the place!! Thank you Joleen!!!

The Cider House is absolutely perfect! My wife and I wanted a weekend get away, a mini honeymoon if you will, and we couldn't have been more pleased. It's perfectly cozy and comfortable, with all the features one could want in a cottage. We "unplugged" all our technology and only turned on the TV to watch a little bit of a basketball game, but strong Wi-Fi and cable/Blu-ray/Netflix are there if you want them. The wood burning stove, although a little tricky to keep burning strong, is super romantic, and the crackling fire relaxes the soul. We were super lucky to have fresh snow fall the night of our arrival, creating winter wonderland for our weekend. The owners are extremely nice, stocking the kitchen with everything we needed, and even shoveling snow for us the first day of our stay. We can't wait to come back and stay in the front house with our whole family.
