" The grace of the Old, the charm of the New..."

Welcome to the Cottage, where you will join folks like actress Kirstie Alley in finding a peaceful escape from the everyday. Here, amid the lush, green fields of rural Jefferson County, our delightful appointments; fine art; crisp, fresh linens and gourmet dining surround you in another world.   Twelve years of loving work have gone into our unique, 5-star accommodations, all by my talented artist husband, to make my dream come true -- do come and share the dream!

Our area offers antiques, arts, theater, golf, sports, kayaking, fishing, museums, antebellum homes, horseback riding and even dog racing and poker! And our warm southern spirit will welcome you and make you feel right at home away from home.

Join us for your wedding, private party, or special event. Let us make you comfortable!
