We spent (sadly only) one night at the Black Lantern. We loved it! A special mention for the upstairs deck with heater where we enjoyed a glass of wine chatting to our host Chris. Our room was comfortable (great bed!) and there was a mini kitchen with everything we needed plus milk when we asked for it to put in our (British tea). The welcome was warm, hospitable and really welcoming. BLI is well situated and walking distance from the town. Chris and Jayne gave us a local dinner recommendation that was spot on! Really good food at Evie’s Bistro & Bakery - and a homely crowd - again we were made to feel really welcome. So far, despite stiff competition, the BLI was really my favourite place to stay in the region.
Breakfast was sublime with maple cream and fruit to start (indescribably delicious) followed by pumpkin flour pancakes with bacon & sausage with pecan syrup and maple syrup.
And Jacky, the tiny toy poodle was an absolute delight - what a well-trained dog and so sweet. L
We really, really enjoyed staying there - the quality of the conversation was as good as the accommodation! Thoughtful & interesting. Ask to see the photos of the development of the inn itself- again, a fascinating and uplifting story! Many thanks to Chris and Jayne - that was special!More
