We stayed at this B&B for a friend's wedding that was held on the grounds. The house is impressive when you drive up..but upon closer look..it needs a little quality time with a powerwash..the side of the house is green with mildew & the porch is covered with spider webs (although it was Halloween time I don't think this was intentional). Also the interior decor is very cluttered & leaves your eyes feeling overwhelmed. Our room was spacious & clean..but we were disappointed to find the bed was like sleeping on a rock (and I tend to prefer more firm mattresses, but honestly the floor may have been softer). Additionally we had a gas fireplace in our room that we were excited to use since the evening was chilly..only to find out it was broken.
I love that they have dogs (hope you like big Irish Wolfhounds) and cats which makes it feel homey, and the breakfast was also tasty..and the other upside is that it was walking distance to the shops & cafes downtown, buut this place definitely could use some improvements.
Also, there really isn't a "lake view" since you're across the street from it...just as an FYI.
