We were two couples, and could not have enjoyed the Cothren House more. We appreciated especially things like the k-cups being supplied for the coffee maker, the easy availability of the manager to top off the supply of bath soap when needed, and the overall welcoming atmosphere of the place. When we had dinner at one of the restaurants in... More

This cottage provided a great location and a cozy, comfortable stay. It is about a 5-10 minute walk (with some hills!) to town. Everyone was extremely friendly and the town had great restaurants as well as a nightlife. We will definitely be coming back!

I totally agree with Kate A.'s review. This is a nice spot for a girl's get-away. Comfortable sitting room for chatting and catching up. There were no coffee cups or glasses in the cottage, we had brought our own so that wasn't a problem; if we had asked, the owners would most likely have supplied what we needed.

The Cothren Cottage is the perfect get-away for a couple. When we arrived we were greeted on the front porch by the sweetest little gray cat. That really added to the charm! The cabin is very well maintained and clean. It's great that the owners have been able to add modern amenities without taking away from the authentic charm. The... More

We were glad we selected the 179 year old Cothren Cabin for our stay in historic Mineral Point and a visit to Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin. The place is very quiet, incredibly unique, and full of charm. It's authentic, yet with modern amenities, like central heat and air. 'Loved the walk-in fireplace with a window and a warming seat.

The Cothren Cottage is the perfect get-away for a couple, small family or, as we did, a gal's weekend away from the husbands. Two bedrooms, a living room and bath, it is charmingly decorated to be comfy but not fou-fou. It has a truly great shower, coffee-maker, microwave, fridge, wireless internet and TV. Cozy and peaceful, it was totally quiet... More

My wife Susan and I have stayed in the Cothren Cabin 2 or 3 times and in the upstairs High Street Suites this year. They are all delightful. The cabin is old, warm and sweet.

We were in awe as we walked into the Cothren Cabin; staying there is a must have experience. The Cabin is rustic, yet clean and cozy, wonderful and full of charm with just enough updating for a very comfortable stay, (i.e. central heat and A/C, great shower), and appropriately furnished with a back-in-time feel. Located in a quiet area of... More
