Priscilla's Cottage

Priscilla's Cottage is almost complete. It is an absolutely beautiful Cottage. A
Cave and a Waterfall are behind the house. Huge Hemlock trees and rock faced cliffs line the hills. Deer and turkey are seen daily at the creek in front. A sheltered Hot-tub area, fire-pit and table are in back in the woods for your comfort and seclusion.
