Massage at Hillside Cottages

Cathy Crelling uses her 19 years of experience and training in many styles of massage (Swedish, Myoskeletal Alignment, Neuromuscular Therapy, Repetitive Use Injury Therapy, Active Isolated Stretching plus others) to personalize the massage, meeting her clients needs through the blending of nurturing and therapeutic touch.  By listening to what you, the client, wants from the massage, she can adapt pressure and integrate deep tissue, stretching and specific work to focus on the release of pain / tension and to promote relaxation. Her focus is to create a balanced and complete massage, and she is able to come to Hillside to offer massage right in the privacy of your cottage.

Gillespie Photography

Trent Gillespie is the fantastic photographer who captured the beauty of our cottages for the website! This husband and wift team is incredibly talented, and it all stemmed from a degree in journalism. Their primary service is wedding photography.

"Our goal for each wedding we photograph is write a novel. Ten years from now, when you sit down with your children and wedding album, the story we capture is sure to bring tears to the eyes. Some call it photojournalistic, candid, or modern wedding photography. We’re not concerned with fitting into a mold or genre, but instead, our wedding photography style is just telling the beautiful story of your wedding. By capturing spontaneity, genuine expressions and candid emotion, or photographs are the truth. Love can’t be fabricated or staged, its beautiful when presented by itself."
