I picked the Poplar Creek B&B off the internet because it sounded inviting and hospitable. From the first moment we arrived, Barb Young took care of us. She is very friendly and checked us in quickly and gave us a tour of the property. I was traveling with my wife and 13 year old son. We stayed in Dorothy's Room which is a very spacious well planned out room. It is very airy and peaceful as is the whole experience. Dorothy's Room shares a sitting room, patio and small kitchenette with another room and that worked really well.
The internet mentioned Barb's homemade breakfasts and these breakfasts were excellent. Always very interesting taste combinations! And a great dessert always followed the hearty breakfasts.
We walked down to the lake and creek on the grounds and found it very relaxing and peaceful. One can rent canoes and such from Barb and Ted if needed.
I would highly recommend this property.
