A relaxing and charming B&B with the most comfortable beds in the Province. The attention to detail and the small touches made for a pleasant and rewarding stay. Acorn's host Donald is a welcoming and charming host who makes his guests feel like family. His great with kids and has host of interesting stories but is never intrusive. Highly recommended.
