ROKU is a winner!

We’ve been so pleased with ROKU at The Cottage that in early April we are installing it at both Pinewood and Shadyside Cabins. I first wrote about ROKU in February of this year so please check out my blog post HERE for more information about what it offers.

How we came to this decision

While ROKU is a great way to access streaming and live content, we also had a financial motive. Both DISH and DirecTV have increased their prices beyond what is reasonable. We had to reduce our current package but ended up paying the same as we did last year. We started looking for alternatives and decided that ROKU would be a great fit for Marsh Hollow. Our team tries very hard to avoid raising prices and this small step (which we think you will like very much) is one way to reduce costs.

Our internet service has become faster and more reliable over the twenty years we have been in business so we now feel confident we can offer our guests access to internet streaming services. This means that we will discontinue our satellite service, but will continue to provide Blu-ray players along with ROKU.

One final benefit: unless guests decide to use the Blu-ray player, one remote will control everything! Remember to bring your app logins and passwords if you intend to use Netflix, Prime, etc. during your vacation. There is a LOT of free content on ROKU. If you do login to your own accounts, don’t worry because the system will automatically erase your information on your check out day.

Thank you for your interest in Marsh Hollow. We hope to see you soon! And if you have any questions, please contact Mary at

Internet/Wifi now available at The Cottage

We could hardly believe our ears when we heard that our telecomm provider Frontier confirmed that there were 48 new ports available in the Laurelville area. Well, folks, it was true and The Cottage now has one of them (Shadyside and Pinewood were connected several years ago.) I set up the modem/router this morning and am writing this as I’m watching the Janis Joplin documentary on Netflix on HDTV.

Might just stay here the rest of the morning!

P.S. We will provide access to Netflix and Pandora at The Cottage.
