We had such an amazing stay at Laurens cottage! It’s a great place to get away and unwind! Very peaceful and relaxing! The cottage was spotless and the amenities were above and beyond! We had everything we needed to cook with and extras for our dogs! I loved that everything was labeled & even a snack drawer with some goodies! It was a cold weekend, but we stayed very warm in the cottage! We felt at home with our dogs & will definitely be back again!           ~ Tonya, Arizona

AMAZING. To start off, Lauren is the best host! The place is amazing. From the fenced area, to inside of the place to the separate Arizona Room attached! Love this place & will for sure be coming back! 10/10 Recommend this place.  ~ Bryce, Arizona

Cute little cottage. Quiet, peaceful, relaxing atmosphere. The host is amazing and VERY detailed. Little notes throughout the house, everything clearly thought out! Ridiculously comfortable bed and basically everything you could ever need! If you forgot something, pretty sure she has it covered! Close to fishing and beautiful scenery! We will definitely be back!

We wanted a couple of days up in the hills to experience more of Arizona's diverse landscape, and staying at Lauren's place in Young didn't disappoint. The cottage is so cute, and completely comfortable. The kitchen is fully equipped for those who, like us, cook every meal. The wee enclosed front yard was great for our dogs. Speaking of dogs, Lauren, more than any other host we've stayed with, provides for pooches - blankets, dishes, couch covers, poo bags - really thoughtful and helpful. For us the only, minor, drawback was an inconsistent, temperamental internet connection. The signal in the cottage isn't strong and it dropped out frequently - it couldn't be relied on if you need access for work or such. We didn't have a data signal on our phones either - again not a problem for us - but do be prepared for more of an off-grid experience. I'd recommend just enjoying where you are - it's an absolutely lovely area. It snowed while we were there, and we had a huge elk visit during the night - it was brief but exciting!  ~ Tania, Texas

FROM LAUREN:   I am always looking for ways to improve our guests experience.  Your comments were taken to heart , and our wifi service has been upgraded.  Thank you, Tania for your honest review.
