“Fantastic setting and a charming host”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

We can only echo what other reviewers have already said about the B&B and Laura. We arrived, hot and a little stressed from the drive and were made to feel so welcome immediately that we were instantly glad we had booked this room. There were four of us - two teenage boys in the bunk-bed room. This was fine for two nights but the bunks are a little small for adult-sized kids! The breakfast served to us in the delightful garden with a breath-taking view over the lake was enough to satisfy even our boys' large appetites and you had the feeling that nothing was too much trouble for Laura. Highly recommended!

This was our third time in this B&B and it was yet another wonderful stay! We felt like visiting our old friends, we were welcomed with opened arms and felt like home for the entire stay. We were pleased to find out that nothing has changed and it's still the number one place to be in Lierna and Como lake. Even though Lierna might seem as a little boring village, there is a wonderful restaurant, grocery store, gelato and everything you need on holidays, there are actually two beaches (one is sandy in the end of the village, and another with grass is in the centre of the village) and there is also romantic lake walk-path with stunning views on the lake. Breakfasts were very tasty and plentiful as always and Laura was the best host ever. She made a reservation in a restaurant for us, she gave us many tips and advices on where to go and was always helpful, nice and very friendly. As I mentioned, it was like visiting old friends rather than staying in "no-name"B&B:-)

A superb place to stay. The host, Laura, is exceptionally welcoming, generous and hospitable and the whole house is impeccably decorated and furnished, making for a truly relaxing stay. The main sights of Lake Como aren't that far away either, if you have a car, or are prepared to wander 10 mins down the hill to the train station.

Thanks to Laura, the owner, we had an amazing experience near Como Lake. Room was cosy,clean and the garden view was breathtaking. Amazing breakfast and hospitality. Laura provided us with great tips for dining and sightseeing. We had also good discounts in few restaurants thanks to her. We wish we could stay more. We will definitely go back soon and stay in Il Bogno to relax and refresh ourselves.
P.S. We still smile for the note above "the smelly flower", very thoughtful. And we miss Nova:)

The Il Bogno B&B is really exceptionnal. The owner, a lady who is also an artist, has decorated the place in a nice artistic fashion. Everything in this house tells you: "Hey, look at me, I have something to tell you".

The lady is very welcoming, comes to the entrance of the land to welcome you and shake your hand, calls you up with your name, offers coffee, tea, and was always available and very eager to give us advice and help. We felt as if we were getting in our own home.

The breakfast was: personalized, delicious, and large. For 2 people we had in total: 3 breakfast breads, 2 types of (seemed homemade) jam, 3 eggs, cereals, 2 cappuccinos, 2 large croissants (one with crème patissière, the other with Nutella), and 4 glasses of grapefruit juice. We could not physically eat anything more (and we usually eat a lot more than the average people in the morning). The breakfast was a treat really. We ate inside because we took breakfast early (and it was a bit cold that morning), but the other couple ate outside.

The place is very quiet - we could hear birds in the morning, not cars or city noise.

Too bad we stayed there only one night. If we had known that it was so easy to do travel trips across the lake from Varena (closeby), we would have stayed 4 nights at that B&B.

The B&B also had the fastest and most stable internet access we had seen during our trip in Italy.

We arrived at the train station directly after a long trip from the U.S. and we found Laura waiting for us there to transport us to her B&B, a few minutes away, on the side of a mountain with beautiful views. A lovelier spot, peaceful and relaxing, one could not hope to find. The room and bathroom were modern and very comfortable. There even was a large bathtub in addition to a shower. Laura always offered to drive us down the hill to town or to the train station where you can hop a train to Varenna easily. I think the breakfasts were amazing, the best I've had in Italy and I've travelled a lot! She also directed us to a wonderful restaurant on the water in Lierna where we received a discount and ate local fare including fish from the lake. Hers is a perfect spot at very reasonable prices and she and her friendly partner, Gerry, are a wonderful couple to meet, as well as excellent hosts.
