We stayed for two nights in the Lake Superior room. This room had a gas fireplace, queen size bed, small couch, comfortable sitting chair, and plenty of room left over. There was also an enclosed porch with a round table and two chairs. You could also go outside from this room to a small outdoor porch that had two chairs. The bathroom had a tub with a shower, cedar lined closet and robes for your use. They had Bee Kind bath products for our use, lovely. There are no whirlpool tubs in the main house. We have stayed in many B&B's that have whirlpools and prefer to stay in homes that do not have these as we find it sounds like a jet plane taking off when people are using them. So, this B&B was very quiet and peaceful. Wine and cheese was served at 5pm. I bring my own wine however, I heard comments from other guests that the wine was guite good. Every room was booked when we stayed so this was a great time to meet people. Everyone seemed to love the wine, cheese and fruit. Breakfast was at 9 am in the main dining room. They set a pretty table, charming with silver napkin rings, candles and bone china cups and saucers. The coffee was fair trade, hot and plentiful. The breakfasts are great, I loved the stuffed French toast and warm syrup. They had Torani syrups for your coffee and also a large tea selection. The common rooms were comfortable and impressive. Please see their web site for pictures. Like most B&B' s we have visited, they had you remove your shoes at the door. I love walking around in my stocking feet, so homey. Also, the carpets are much cleaner, I think, at B&B's where this is the practice. The large porch on the first floor is the place to sit, sip wine and talk in the evening. I could go on, but just want to say thank- you to the owners. Oh, the neighborhood is so beautiful. Many of the homes are 100 year old mansions. They have a book that describes the mansions in the area, a great guide for a walking tour of the area.
