Thank you Colleen and Pauline for being such wonderful hosts! It is such a beautiful home and setting, our two adjoining rooms and living area were perfect for our family, it was great to have our own space with two young children and not feel we were disturbing anyone. Breakfast and our “intimate dinner for two” were delicious! Thank you...we will be back to stay again!

We only stayed one night here - wished we'd stayed longer. Gorgeous spot - with great views - the room was beautiful with 2 bedrooms and sitting room. The owners Pauline and Colleen were very welcoming and cooked us a lovely breakfast. Would highly recommend staying in this well kept lovely homestead.
