The Goat Cottage welcomes guests with their dog all year. The cottage is a transformed, spacious dance studio with a cd collection, guest art gallery wall where guests of every age are welcomed to draw. Everyone's art work is framed & hung behind a table with supplies & inspirational art books. There are playing cards, puzzles and books. The studio space is roomy with high ceilings, a king, twin daybed ( screens for privacy) a loft with a twin, 2 tables, 2 couches, a mirrored wall and room for dance or yoga. Dance sometimes happens spontaneously with skirts or veils. The separate Nest Room has a queen bed. You can see the goats from every window. Guests can eat with the goats morning & evening at the picnic table. Fresh eggs are yours from our 20 chickens. The Cottage is surrounded by the goat trail but the goats don't bother anyone. Goats are quiet, friendly and curious to meet everyone who walks over to say hello. Guests can schedule to see the musical goat show trail when all 6 goats run, jump and climb 10 stages leading to a Sakonnet river view. Guests can watch outside the fence or can follow me and climb up on the different stages with the goats. The goat show can take 20 minutes or longer so you can get to know their different personalities. The fully equipped kitchen ( used by a wonderful chef who stayed for a week) has a list of favorite places to visit. If you have any questions let us know. Yours goatly Mark and Barbara
From California our very first guests wrote " Such a lovely cottage. Goats are grazing, chickens clucking, flower greenery abounds. Rustic and inspired art is everywhere! It is embracing and soothing. We slept so soundly and comfortably. To look up at the trees through the skylights thru the warm wood, red ceiling- so peaceful - Thank you so much. From NYC " I came here with my two sons and my husband. We spent 2 nights and it was a wonderful experience for all of us. The kids enjoyed watching and feeding the animals. Thanks to Barbara for making this happen. This will be one of our memorable trips. Thank you Barbara for being a great host and the boys love you. We had a very comfortable stay". From Mass & North Carolina " We spent a delightful 4th of July in this beautiful space! Barbara was the perfect hostess, providing guidance on beaches and other fun places for adventure. We wish we could have stayed longer in this little paradise "
