What a fun time ! This is how you imagine things should be (but usually never quite works out that way). Paula and Bill go way way way out of their way for you and they know everything and everyone. The bed (we were in Room 7) was great, the breakfasts wonderful, the atmosphere delightful and it was quiet quiet quiet (why is it so hard to find quiet these days?). The location is out of the way but easy to find, there are easy hikes in the woods out the back door and fine dining (or salads from the salad bar at the local grocery), are within minutes. We just had a really really good time. We needed gluten and lactose free food and it was there without missing a beat. Even afternoon cookies were specially made and "reserved" for us. If only it were as easy in real life as Paula made it appear to be. In the area there are dozens of back roads through the woods and into small towns and beautiful drives, waterfalls aplenty and hiking trails everywhere from easy to strenuous.
