Comfy place in comfy little town

  • 4 of 5

Great little place in Marine. Perfectly located near the center of the small town and just a few minutes from Stillwater. The apartment was clean and tidy and very cozy. The owners even left a nice bottle of wine. I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it.
