I used to live in Buffalo, but have since moved to Boston. I have friends from Buffalo who called me up and suggested that my girlfriend and I meet them up in NH at this B&B for part of the weekend.
They have been going here for the past 10 years, and as my husband has just left the country on business for 6 months, I jumped at any plan to keep my mind off of being alone and missing him.
I have to say that I am not really sure why people would flood to the Cape when going North provides much less hassle, traffic, and tourists.
From the moment we pulled up I felt like we had arrived at a friend's house, not a completely strange place. We were last minute bookers for our rooms but Kathy and Dave were more than accomodating. It is such a quaint spot that's very secluded. It's not a busy area so it's really restful.
It's behind a church, and next door to a grave yard (which I really thought would creep me out, but it's a beautiful old graveyard with beautiful old headstones and it's a very nice place to walk in the morning) so it's quiet and with the lake a nice 3 mile or less walk, it's a little slice of heaven.
I love how there is no TV or clocks, so you do loose track of time in a good way, and you chat with the other people who are staying and just learn to relate to people again without the use of electronics.
One of the women who was there, was there with her two teenage boys and she told us that there was no one else around the night before and she was nervous that the boys would get bored, but she and the boys sat and talked the whole night and it was one of the best nights of her life.
That's what this place is about. Getting back in touch with humanity.
I love the quilts, and the beds are so comfortable. The breakfast was AMAZING!
When you go, you must ask Dave about his running with the bulls experiences.
I can't wait for my husband to come back so we can go together and meet up with our friends.
Thank you Kathy and Dave for a really great weekend!
