beautifull house and great view. Very friendly guesthouse and the room and bathroom were well fournished and clean. Massimo is very good at making you feel welcome and is very helpfull. I hope I get the change to go there again. Also peacefull because it is a few kilometers up the mountain. Walking down to the centre of Stresa takes about 15 minutes and the taxi will take you back for 12,00 - 15,00 euro

We spent a week here recently and enjoyed our stay. Breakfast was delicious and we thoroughly enjoyed it being served out in the sunshine on the balcony. We had booked a room with a balcony overlooking the lake but the garden had grown too tall to see the lake. The only down-side is that the ensuite is not attached to the bedroom, but is across the hallway. As there wasn't anyone in the other downstairs room it didn't cause us any problem. Great walk down the hill into Stressa and good exercise getting back up the hill!

Room Tip: If staying again I would request the room on the breakfast room level that has a balcony overlooking the lake.

Salvatore, buongiorno
Apprezzo moltissimo che abbiate recensito il nostro B&B e i vostri consigli e suggerimenti sono per me sicuramente di stimolo a continuo miglioramento.
Sono rammaricato dal fatto che le vostre aspettative siano state rattristate da quanto lei menziona nella su recensione: maggio è stato un mese terribile, freddo e piovoso, e come imposto dalla regione piemonte, non potevo accendere ill riscaldamento in quel periodo. Se avessi saputo avrei comunque provveduto con altri mezzi a riscaldare la vostra camera e vi avrei anche potuto fornire un nuovo tappo per la vasca. Per quanto io cerchi di soddsfare tutti i nostri ospiti, spesso mi scontro con l'impossibilità di accontentarli tutti: ognuno ha il suo materasso o il suo cuscino ideale e non sempre corrispondono a quello che trovano nella camera di un Bed & Breakfast.
Sperando che vogliate essere ancora nostri ospiti in un prossimo futuro, un cordiale saluto da Stresa
massimo

We booked Lo Scoiattolo for the last leg of our vacation in Italy just looking for a comfortable place to stay before we fly out of Italy via Milan Malpensa airport. We got more than we wanted!

The attic was cozy and charming. Not good for very tall people or those not very agile at avoiding the roof beams. But that's part of the charm.

Massimo was a most warm and friendly host. He listens to what you want to do and makes valuable recommendations. He told us how to get to the islands, where to park, where to go to church, and, in the evening, booked us at a wonderful restaurant nearby.

We even spent a fun afternoon just hanging out with him and having coffee (gratis!) and cookies.

I would recommend the attic room for couples who want to explore Stresa, the three islands, and the lake.

Room Tip: Attic. Definitely.

We stayed in the hotel for one night to see Stresa and Boromean islands. And actually enjoyed it a lot. Location is a bit far from the city center of Stresa, but we had a car and in 4 minutes were in the city (free parking is easy to find there). Owner of the hotel is a very friendly person and helped us a lot with surroundings and tips and tricks. Breakfast was one of the best I ever had in Italian hotels. Overall it is a nice experience to be in a small private hotel and would definetly come back here again.

Room Tip: If you are travelling with friends and there are 4 of you - consider having two rooms with shared bathroom. You will have two rooms separated from living area, which is quite nice.
