My husband and I went up for 2 nights to get a quick snowmobile vacation in and it was so much nicer than checking into a hotel. Personal service, completely catered to and spoiled, Wendy cooked us some outstanding meals. Her husband even joined us and lead the way while snowmobiling which was great because we weren't that familiar with... More

Wendy and Steven were most accommodating for our girls weekend. They went above making us feel comfortable but seemed to enjoy the nonsense that is typical when you host a gaggle of girls. The breakfasts were deluxe and the rooms were very private. This house was designed for a B&B allowing the guests full comfort in the common areas as... More

This bed and breakfast was a cut above. From the service to the accomodations everything was wonderful. I would highly recommend this location for anyone looking for a lake front B & B. The breakfast was one that had my mouth watering. Can't wait for our next girls weekend.

I really enjoyed the comfort of parking my snowmobiles, trailor, and truck in a secure setting! Steven was very accomodating in this matter. Easy access to the lake, and the extensive snowmobile trail system made this stay very convienient for snowmobiling.
