We were lucky to find such wonderful and welcoming hosts. The B&B is located at the lakeside and an excellent place for hiking. The homecooked meal was very good. The room was nice and cosy with an en suite bathroom.

We had a lovely weekend away in the charming village of Hecla. The scenery was glorious especially from the hot-tub! We were able to use the bikes available to cycle to Gull Harbour for some excellent pickerel. The hot and tasty breakfasts provided for by Sharon are the best in the country
