I can't believe that I completely forgot to write a review back in August when we stayed at the lovely Starlight llama B&B! This is by far my partner and I 's FAVORITE B&B and we are frequent B&B stayers.
John and Dee are fantastic! They make an amazing and delicious organic breakfast which is made even better by their thoughtful and intelligent conversation. The animals are adorable and amazing! Pedro the donkey was particularly fascinated with my partner and all of the animals gave us inspiration for amazing photographs to bring home. With John's helpful guidance, we also enjoyed following the trails right beside the house for a morning hike.
The house is a quick and easy 10 minute drive from the town center. We actually really enjoyed the quick drive. It is was close enough to feel like an easy commute, but far enough to feel like a nature retreat. We are from NYC, so it was nice to fall asleep to the soft sounds of the forrest instead of the cacophony of the city.
The room was spotless and had everything that we needed. There were windows looking out into the farm where we could see the llamas welcoming us as we arrived .Additionally, the bathroom also had a window and was squeeky clean:)
This was truly one of our favorite weekend getaways ! With a wonderful town like Northapmton and delightfully engaging hosts like John and Dee we are counting down the days until our return :)
