This b&b has a terrific deck overlooking the water, friendly and interesting folks coming through and comfortable beds. However, the farmhouse could be kept a bit tidier, as mosquitos and large bugs could be found in all corners. Simply adding window screens would be a big help. Doors could also be oiled (some are quite creeky) and the hottub could be made a bit hotter, but on the whole it's a good place to stay. 11am checkout is also not so great.
