The Quilters Cottage
The Quilter’s Cottage is our newest addition to Mill Wheel on the Nueces. I think it is the most charming with two porches, a high peaked roof and an upstairs bedroom! Some of the appeal is found in the furnishings - antique iron beds with quilts and vintage drapes, an old hoosier cabinet, an antique armoire and wicker furniture scattered about!
As with all of our accommodations, the Quilter’s Cottage is equipped with central air and heat to insure that our guests are comfortable in any weather. As you enter the living, dining, kitchen area from either of the two porches you will immediately begin to experience the old fashioned charm of this place. The old round oak table under a beautiful chandelier and the antique hoosier in the kitchen/dining area look right at home in this new/old house! The kitchen has top of the line appliances including an electric stove, a full refrigerator with ice maker, a microwave, toaster, coffeemaker, electric can opener and is outfitted with pots and pans, bowls, dishes, glasses and silverware. The living area has a couch with two end tables, lamps and a coffee table. The television has Direct TV in the living room as well as upstairs.
The downstairs bedroom is carpeted and large enough to accommodate two double beds, an antique armoire, a small desk under the staircase, a wicker chair and lamps for reading, with a full bath adjoining. Upstairs the carpeted bedroom is long and narrow, running the length of the house. It has a little powder room with a pedestal lavatory and commode and windows with lace valances in each end of the room. This room has two double beds and one twin bed with nightstands and lamps, a chair and side table and a small television.
Outside there is a small patio with a barbeque grill and picnic table under the shaded oak trees for your grilling pleasure. Choose one of the two porches for just the very nicest place to sit and enjoy your morning coffee or tea and in the evening to experience one of our beautiful sunsets. A short walk will take you to the picnic area overlooking the beautiful Nueces river. The river is deep and clear. Summer finds the river just the right temperature to enjoy a good swim – not too cold, just right!
We would love to have you come and stay with us in the Quilter’s Cottage and you don’t even have to be a quilter! Linens are furnished so grab your toothbrush and river towels and come enjoy our little part of the world in the beautiful Nueces Canyon.
