I never knew of Lake Hood, well other than there is a mini Iron Man event there this year. I googled Lakehood and found this gorgeous B & B. Booked in for one night for our 9 year anniversary, asked for early check in (normally 2pm) and that as ok, we arrived 1pm. Lovely welcome by Eric & Eleanor - cheese, crackers, fruit juice and had a chat.
In our gorgeous room was some fruit, fruitcake and also tea/coffee facilities. Comfy bed & pillows. Delicious body wash! View from the room & courtyard overlooking the canal, fantastic.
We went for a 1 hour kayak (you could go for as long or as short as you wanted). Such a peaceful, beautiful location. We had our own space, then met up with the hosts before heading out to dinner, we enjoyed a couple of wine and lovely snacks with them, we could’ve talked for hours but were booked in at the Lakehouse for dinner. I had one of the best meals ever at the Lakehouse, highly recommend! Eric cooked us a lovely breakfast. We ventured out in the very strong winds for a little bide ride. Many thanks Eric & Eleanor I will be recommending your B & B. Thanks Mel.
