We made a reservation for a quick get away across the border. When we arrived we saw a steel building, LOTS of fishing equipment and two smaller buildings on the water that didn't look like what we expected. Did we see a picture of the exterior of this place before making the reservation? Uh, no...... As we went down the walkway we saw the house boat is hidden by the steel building and isn't visible until you get right down next to it. The guest rooms (2) are on the main floor along with a small kitchen and sitting area. The rooms have gas fireplaces that warm up to a toasty level in the cold damp winter weather and also have a table for eating in your room by the fireplace. Yes, Colin runs a fishing business and Yes, the guests rooms are as nice as the website shows and YES, the swans (and a lonely goose!) come paddling by looking for a handout in the morning and evening. This was such a peaceful and great getaway! Go and Enjoy yourself, and don't be fooled when you step out of the car!!
