Split Apple Lodge is a purpose-build B&B, at the top of a hill with spectacular views. It has large bedrooms and spacious common areas. Continental breakfast is well done. Burt and Paulette are friendly and helpful. The grounds are a gardeners delight though the American Quail love the vegetable garden.

Thanks to Paula and Bert for an amazing stay. You might come to Split Apple lodge for the location and the views (and they are breathtaking!), but you'll regret leaving after their amazing welcome and hospitality.
