Enjoyed so many things about Sky Meadow! Here's a list, no particular order....
*Gyllian-welcoming, artsy, informative, great cook, great spirit.
*Location-off the beaten path, quiet, lake is nearby, Trans-Canada trail within walking
distance, no light polution so very starry sky which Gyllian encouraged us to see.
*Room-small and quirky but nice with closets to stash stuff, bed comfy, great sheets,
plenty of pillows, though I always bring my own, nice view out windows including apple tree and fushia in bloom.
*Sitting room connects all rooms where we played cards; little ol' fridge to put our stuff in and where a pitcher of water is kept. Water and wine glasses on top, too. Very convenient especially when we had 12 pounds of fabulous blueberries we picked at the neighbors and took home with us. Gyllian checked with Customs to make sure we could take them across the border. Mmmm. We're still enjoying them.
*Bathroom-we had the use of two. One with just a toilet and sink-very charming, which was handy at night, as it was on the same level. We opted for the large bath upstairs with (my favorite) a big claw-foot tub. I was able to actually float in it and Gyllian provided some delightful 'teabag' bathsalts made locally by one of her artisan friends. Nice. lovely bathroom though we had to go upstairs to use it.
*BREAKFAST-delicious!! The two courses made us happy all three days! Imagine, dessert for breakfast and it's served first!! Melt-in-your-mouth flan with fresh sliced peaches (I got the recipe for this.) Apple crisp made from her own apples and then cherry cobbler and all made in the morning. With the 2nd courses being special and filling, we didn't eat lunch any of the 3 days, just a snack to tide us over 'til dinner. (Dinner was a drawback due to the fact that there are no good restaurants in the area but that's hardly the fault of the B&B.)
*Flora & fauna-fresh flowers throughout the B&B, fruit trees all over the area. Charming and well behaved dogs and a funny, talking cat with vampire-like fangs. Too cute. Pets are not allowed on the level where the rooms are nor during breakfast, either. Didn't see any bears, though we heard tales and would have liked a sighting.
*Recreation-Christina Lake is gorgeous and there are boat rentals, beaches, swimming spots. Rivers are popular for kayaks, tubing, etc but we happened to come when there wasn't enough water to do so. We'll be bringing our kayak back in July next year. We took our kayak on the lake, though, so we were happy. Walked on the trail one day. Would like to do more of that.
***Thank you, Gyllian. We'll be seeing you again.***
