This is a nice B & B. The room is clean and comfortable. The location is great, right next to a Marina with a cute bar/restaurant. The lake and little town is just a short walk away. Very accommodating and friendly hosts.

Shirley & Vince are the ultimate hosts in this lovely B&B. Delightful, large bedroom, very clean, with a thoughtful minibar & proper wifi. Delicious breakfast, cooked by Shirley, to my request, very complete & carefully served. Vince kindly gave me local touring info. Prices recently reduced, extremely good value. Highly recommend.

Variety of large luxury rooms and suites, our standard double was the smallest and cheapest, but more than adequate, clean and comfortable, excellent shower.
