My husband and I just returned from our honeymoon stay at the Blacksmith Inn, and I cannot tell you how many times we have joked about jumping back in the car to go back immediately! We've never stayed at a B&B and were hesitant about what it would be like, but it exceeded our expectations and it truly was the most amazing honeymoon spot. The owners are the most kind and genuine people you can meet, and they work diligently to provide a comfortable and private stay for their guests. We stayed in rm. #13 of the Harbor House and appreciated all the details of our stay. The house and rooms are impeccably clean, comfortable and cozy. The decor is perfectly reminiscent of a historic blacksmith house with all the modern amenities of a hotel suite. We particularly loved the extremely comfortable king size bed, jacuzzi, fireplace, his/her sinks, high quality soaps/toiletries, bathrobes and balcony with hammock. The B&B also has Wifi, although not the greatest connection.....this was not a huge issue. It was not the speediest, but still doable. Our plan was to stream movies through our AppleTV, however since we could not do this, we took advantage of the wonderful selections of movies to watch instead and were just as happy. I've read that other guests were not happy with the continental breakfast, but I have to disagree. My husband and I love our big breakfasts (ie, waffles, eggs, hash browns, meats, etc) and felt the items offered were more than enough! There's very wholesome granola, oatmeal, hard boiled eggs, milk, yogurt, cheese, fruit, pastries, coffee and a wonderful assortment of juices (Door Cty Cidar and Naked juices). Additionally, you can take as much as you need and we felt it filled us up for several hours. We particularly liked that we could take it back to our room to eat in privacy on our balcony. The homemade cookies, and popcorn/lemonade in the afternoon was always an awesome treat to look forward to. Lastly, we took advantage of the free kayaks available to the guests and enjoyed a couple hours on the lake. I have to say, these are nice kayaks also and plenty for people to use ( I think 6 kayaks total). I could go on and on, but overall it was the most enjoyable stay we've ever had. I've already recommended this place to my family and friends and we look forward to coming back on our anniversary!
