What a surprise and what a find. Nothing was too much trouble, the whole thing was seamless and Mark and Jane did everything with a smile. We couldn't have asked for more, even arriving at 11pm they left us a key. Extremely accommodating and absolutely the best b&b in the lakes. We will be back! Thanks for everything! S&S

Breakfast was more than you'll need and you get to choose what you'd like to have cooked for you by Mark. Mark and Louise are the perfect hosts, not in your space but happy to provide info on...

The B&B is close to tourist shops and places to eat. If you look down the Main Street, you will be able to see the water at the bottom of the hill. It was about ten minutes walk down to the boats to go on the trips over the lake. There is beautiful scenery. My husband and I would go... More

Jane & Mark are great hosts. They provide a warm welcome and give a sense that nothing would be too much trouble. We recent had the pleasure to stay here and they couldn't have been more helpful in making our stay very enjoyable. Unfortunately it was for only one night but it is a great place to base your visit.... More

Excellent customer service, very friendly and helpful owners. Very accommodating to alternative dietary requirements. We didn't make many plans prior to arrival but had a whole day planned after breakfast with their help and great knowledge of the area. The room was a good size and most importantly very clean. The road is quiet so you can easily sleep with... More
