It was a shame we only stayed in Wilderness for 1 night - we could have stayed for so much longer. Gerald and JD are fantastic hosts, they couldn't do enough for us and the B&B itself is amazing. Fantastic attention to detail to throughout. Maxwell and Maggie the golden labs are gorgeous too so if you're missing your own... More

Gerald and JD are the perfect hosts, who independently, and very kindly, arranged a dinner appointment for us at The Girls (which was great) when we were late arriving, and then further adjusting the booking so that we didn't have to rush.
