We had a great time at Mary's Garden. The private yard and outdoor shower are really special. There is a small main house and a small cottage on the property. Both have one bathroom. The main house has had a nice remodel, while the cottage seems mostly original. The patio has a nice little gas fire pit that we enjoyed. We enjoyed our stay and found the owner to be very nice to work with. ”
Mary's Garden - lovely retreat
The grounds are magnificent, and the house is very nice too. Clean, comfortable, modern amenities, and very peaceful. The perfect retreat for those that prefer a bit of peace and quiet.”
