You'd never know Kathy and Don just started running this B&B the end of last year; every detail was thought of. Yes, the room was well dressed with large ensuite (including whirlpool tub). Yes, the house was beautiful. Yes, the backyard and gardens were a pleasure to walk through. BUT, it was the details that made it a step above the rest. It didn't feel comercially or businessy at all. The conversation when I came and left, the home made/grown meals (down to the jams), the warmth ... I felt spoiled, and cared for like I haven't experienced at any other B&B's.
It really is hard to express and properly describe an experience in words, so I say go, try, enjoy and feel the same things I did. You WILL be wonderfully surprised!
