Our good friends and my husband and I stayed with Brian and Lynn for two nights! We all left feeling as though we were leaving friends that we were really going to miss.(and we DO!!) The rooms were immaculate, the bed linens were the BEST and the shower was perfect and the breakfasts were wonderful! The complimentary drinks and homemade... More

I've stayed at a lot of hotels, but never at a B&B. This Inn really set the bar high. My husband & I never want to stay at another B&B. We can't wait to go back next year! Before we left, we were already planning our next trip to return. When we arrived, the owners were so friendly. They immediately... More

What a great B and B. Stayed here recently for one night. Wish it had been more. Brian and Lynn were friendly and engaged without being intrusive. They have found the perfect balance as hosts. The inn is extremely clean and well kept. Breakfast was great with plenty of food that was tasty and fresh. Would highly recommend and will... More

What an interesting building, great views and fantastic hosts Brian and Lynn. Lovely room perfectly clean and very generous snacks, drinks etc. Information about restaurants and places to vist was perfect. we like to walk in the evening and have aquiet drink with a meal but it was necessary to drive. Otherwise the location was great.

We always have great fun hosting folks from the UK. We hope we helped make your holiday memorable. Yes, the Inn is less than a 5 minute drive to town, but the views and sunsets from the back porch while enjoying a complimentary beverage are a worthy trade off! Many thanks for submitting your feedback. More

Wow! What a great time at the Ballard house. Brian and Lynn are awesome, accommodating and authentic people. The house is absolutely in amazing shape and the cleanest place I've ever stayed. We will definitely stay here when visiting Meredith again.

If I could possibly rate them higher than a 5, I would. Brian & Lynn are the ideal hosts in every way. You feel like you are visiting your best friend from HS who wants to show you the wonderful place he/she has decided to live, whilst anticipating all your needs. Each morning they would give us not one, but... More

We stayed here for three nights during the Timberman Half-Ironman. Our room was at the back of the house and had a lovely view of the lake and mountains, including the sunset. Our hosts, Brian and Lynn, made our stay very comfortable. They made you feel relaxed, like you were staying with family, including Newton, the golden retriever, who loves... More

We needed a place to stay for one night near Meadowbrook for after seeing the Moody Blues. We had made reservations and when we showed up, we were welcomed warmly. We got our choice of a few rooms, and selected the one that would make our stay the most convenient. All the rooms were very nice and very clean. When... More
