The room was exquisite, the grounds were spacious and immaculate, the breakfast was tasty and bountiful and the hosts were friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. A better experience is hardly imaginable. Rick and Nancy Wilcosh

Stayed here for 3 nights the home is amazing and the room was well set out. It is in a nice location with a short walk to town. Lorne was a great host and the breakfasts were delicious and varied every morning. All you need in a B & B.

Our two night stay was OK. The room was fine, the bed was good, the amenities were average. The breakfast was eggs each morning, not up to par with the many B & B's we have stayed in. The Inn Keeper was not the friendliest we have met before.

Lorne and Janet are warm and welcoming hosts with many suggestions of what to see, where to eat and places to hike "off the beaten path."

Our group of six cyclists arrived at the wonderful Alicion B&B after a very rainy, cold morning ride. We really appreciated the attentiveness of our hosts, Lorne & Janet, who provided lively conversation, excellent restaurant advice and delicious breakfasts. The Alicion has been beautifully restored and furnished. We will not hesitate to stay here again should we be fortunate enough... More
