This is a beautifully restored, classic Cape Cod house. We stayed in the Hydrangea room for two nights and wish we could have stayed longer. The bedroom has a large entrance vestibule with plenty of storage, leading to a cosy ante room, with a television and small fridge. The main bedroom has a very comfortable king sized four poster bed, with a large wardrobe and dressing table. Here there is another wall mounted flat screen television. The bedroom has fantastic views over the rear garden and the lake beyond. The en-suite bathroom includes a large jacuzzi bath and separate shower unit. There is a his and hers vanity unit, again with plenty of storage. Two bath robes are also provided.
Downstairs, the sitting room is decorated in rich colours and contains many nice pieces of antique furniture and paintings. It also has a wood burning fireplace. A healthy, hearty breakfast is served in the adjacent dining room, and there is also a small veranda where you can sit and have morning tea or coffee.
The hosts, Len and Pat, made us feel very welcome, and I would describe staying there as akin to visiting a favourite aunt and uncle. Len is full of great information and tips about the local area, and can also recommend some great eating places. Pat bakes wonderful cakes or muffins at night for the next day's breakfast.
In summary, this is a high end bed and breakfast, in an excellent situation, run by dedicated and welcoming hosts. Book a holiday here and you will not be disappointed.
