What a refreshing change. The only night of our holiday not spent in a hotel/lodge. It was charming to be greeted by the owner into her home. The building was right on the river with a great view from the porch. It was very easy to find, and parking just outside.
The owner does have a cat and dogs so be prepared for them to greet you too. The cat spent most of the day and evening in our room and sleeping on the bed which was lovely. The room was large and very well decorated. Bathroom was large with the softest towels ever! Everything in the room was spotless, and every extra was there. Breakfast was excellent.
If we could think one improvement, suggest flat screen TVs and DVD players as she still had VCR's!!!! Although we were very grateful for the video collection.
The owner had local restaurant menus in the living room, and made an excellent recommendation for dinner, although her directions weren't great!
Overall a lovely place we would like to revisit.
