We found ourselves in another Country for our 48th anniversary. Four hours away from Columbus, Ohio we were greeted by hosts Bill & Louise McKinnon. We've stayed in many B&B's over the decades; this is one we will remember. Their lovely home was inviting and relaxing. The Hawk's Nest room was spacious including hot tub, along with a small baloney overlooking the lake. To see the water and hear the waves from windows, screened porch and our room was relaxing on so many levels ,
We enjoy learning about culture wherever we visit. Our surprise was the wine festival that included jazz, food, wine from over 10 different wineries in the area and lots of wonderful people. Yes, the wines were quite nice. We brought several bottles home. Each day was delightful. Bill & Louise are truly special hosts. They could sit and chat yet know innately when to have us enjoy our privacy in their beautiful setting.
Louise is an awesome cook. Breakfast was often a surprise, after asking us what we liked, with such items as egg in a basket, waffles and their Canadian bacon (much better than ours in the states). Home made zucchini bread was even sent with us as a snack for the trip home. Four days in Amherstburg, Canada created many more memories than we ever imagined!
