It’s a cottage! It’s a tower! Okay well, it’s kind of both, and it’s covered in brightly colored vines and has the most interesting interior because of its circular shape. Staying in the spring or fall prove to both be magical as the foliage is at a distinct intensity, but in the winter when the snow has fallen, being right up against that little pond creates some seriously pretty scenery.
