Parking is just beyond the house; room for 3 cars plus a couple of spaces in front if you pull as far off the road to the right as you can. NOTE: Please come into the cottage and check with me about where to park. My neighbors' parking lot is right next to ours and they get understandably upset if I use any of their spaces without permission.
