If private, quiet and cozy are what you're seeking, the cottage is the place to stay. It offers rustic simplicity-with a few modern conveniences. Lounge in the living room by fireplace or sit on the wooden deck and read a book in the middle of the forest. Get back to the basics by heating your water or cooking your dinner on a wood-burning stove.
