We stayed in the private stand-alone cottage and while a bit stark it did the job well enough. If this was in a city, it wouldnt be acceptable but out in a 2 horse town in the middle of a basically nowhere, I think the owner does an admirable job. It was clean and comfortable enough for the night. Location is fine, on the road to Lake Matheson and a short drive to basically the entire town. And yes, its a bit expensive at $185, but such is life.
The owner is definitely a bit opinionated but not to the point of being off-putting and she is obviously knows about the area. I learned on this trip to expect some conversation and butting in from the owner if you are staying at a B&B. I dont particularly care for it, but I think the owners believe that the clients expect that personal connection.
Oh, and she cooks a pretty darn good breakfast. Overall, I would recommend it.
