It was a real privilege to stay at Portage. If you are looking for modern chic then move on in your search because Portage is full of history and is presented in a style appropriate to the building. The rooms have comfortable beds and all you need but have the addition of being a little quirky with undulating wooden floors... More

This B & B is on a long, winding road (North Portage Road) but the destination made up for the drive. The building dates from 1889 and we had a lovely room with a lake view. I went for a walk around the grounds and came to the front and was surprised by 3 deer grazing on fallen apples just... More

I held high expectations for my visit based on the reviews and the photos of the gorgeous gardens, but learned that the chalet is a very different property from the Inn. It runs independently as an 'efficiency unit' and required us to clean up at the end of our visit. We noted that the previous guests had not cleaned very... More

A lovely place, quiet, with excellent style. It is a long walk down the hill to the water, but otherwise, one of the nicest places in the area. About ten minutes from Huntsville, and be clear about the directions! The owners are on site, and very interesting and helpful.

I can not praise this Inn highly enough. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel so welcome. We were given lots of handy advice and tips on everything to get the most out of our visit including local areas to visit and eat. The owners were very friendly and took plenty of time to aquaint us with... More

I stayed at the Inn with a large group of friends in late May. We were the second party ever to rent the inn as an entire unit (as opposed to renting individual rooms), and it couldn't have worked out better! For example, the fully equipped commercial kitchen made preparing food for the group and cleaning up after a breeze.... More

A lovely rustic old Inn with all the modern convieniences. Rooms are large with comfortable firm beds. We had a small fridge, plates, wine glasses, cutlery, a kettle for tea and a coffee maker. The owners are top notch. Very friendly and accommodating and they serve a fantastic home cooked breakfast that keeps you full until dinner. We will definitely... More

My 9yr old son and I stayed for 4 nights. The inn has been lovingly restored by the current owners whose passion for what they do is obvious. Their attention to detail, and in ensuring all guests have everything they need from in depth local information to finely tuned breakfast orders, is excellent and lacking in many similar establishments. We... More

I stayed for one night with a friend in the twin room, and as soon as we arrived, we thought we should have stayed for longer! All staff members were so warm and welcoming. Our beds were very comfortable and the jacuzzi bath was a bonus! The breakfast was outstanding, which we had outside while overlooking the beautiful lake. We... More

I was in Canada for my honeymooon, and several months before going I shooted a lot of questions to Nancy, and she always answered me very kindly, one of the best hosts I have ever had in a hotel. They are very interesting people and incredible hosts, unfortunatelly they had to go for a book conference, but they left the... More
