Jim and Marlene were excellent and interesting hosts. The breakfast was fabulous and we spent some time discussing the food. For overseas visitors there is so much to learn that most North Americans take for granted and it is great to stay at a B&B with interesting hosts who themselves travel. As an added bonus we met some US travellers also staying who had decided to drive transcontinental - a very fun evening.
We were tremendously impressed with Jim's knowledge and his ability to fix up our next nights stay at "The Ponderosa" in Sydney, Cape Breton Island.
