MoonDance Inn was our "memorial" experience weekend. They offer a lot of kayaks you can take out on the lake, which we did. Unfortunatley we ended up in the lake due to our lack of experience kayaking. But it was fun to laugh about it. So here are our pros and cons on this B & B located right on Lake Whatcom:
Pros - location was close enough to down town to take in a nice dinner at a restaurant. The view from our room was incredible - we left the door open to take in the fresh air! There are so many great seating places around the inn (both inside and out) where you can entertain. We had some friends that lived in the area come meet us there and it was fun just sitting & chatting. They have a very pretty pond with fish. Plants galore - so pretty!
Cons - A little pricey, but for the room with a view, one can expect it. Although the bathroom is simply gorgeous, we are not 'techy' and couldn't figure out the bathtub buttons (jets and drying); and we couldn't figure out how to turn the shower on until the 2nd day we were there. I guess we are used to amazing breakfasts at B&B's, and this one was 'average'. One of us doesn't like salmon and they served a salmon egg scramble. No lock on the door made us feel a little uneasy especially when you can hear people walking on the hallways.
All in all, it was an adventure, to be sure.
