Susan and Mike are so much fun and their wonderful train cars really match their enthusiasm for quirky. The cars aren't 5 star but that wasn't why we went. We went because we were curious and wanting to be off the "Princess Hotel" type of tour. We won. The view was terrific out over the river, the suites were totally different than anywhere we'd stayed and breakfast was excellent. (think we got hungry again about midnight) Susan and Mike showed us their home too and talked a little about their lives. A neighbour dropped in and added to our morning entertainment. This B&B type accommodation would be a bit better when the weather was warm but we were grateful to Susan for keeping it open so we could have the experience. Thumbs up from everyone in our group.
