Althea Cottage Accommodations
Althea Cottage is named, according to Saban tradition, after the last female native to live in the house. It has two bedrooms, each with a queen bed and ensuite bathroom.
The large living room has a sofa that makes into a trundle bed that will sleep two children comfortably. The owners, Janly Jaggard and Beth Trainum both love to cook so the kitchen is well equipped. Most dining is outdoors on the patio where a pleasant light breeze usually blows.
