This is the best place to stay! We have stayed at B and Bs in US and Canada and this is like the home away from home after a day of activities. The landscaping is amazing with great views from rooms or spacious sitting areas with porches and tables. It is the loving touches that make a great B and B experience and Edith knows how to make your stay enjoyable from the fresh baked cookies to the wonderfully appointed rooms and areas for relaxation, visiting, or snuggling up with a mug of coffee or tea. After two trips this year, we are hoping to return soon!
