You will get a hint of something nice when you turn off the road and go in past the totem pole. When you park up, and get out the car, you will see it. I loved the location on the lake, and the beautiful grounds. Go in the door and you will get a warm welcome from two lovely people... More

What is idyllic, is making yourself at home like it is your own private place - and we are glad you made the most of every nook and corner, and with such keen eyes for spotting the natural wildlife. Great conversations! Still thinking about the French hideaway! "Somewhere", we look forward to visiting with you again. All the Best, D&E More

Wonderful hosts and comfortable setting- felt very much like we were staying at a friends home for the weekend. The lake and dock were lovely and the location was easy to find. Situated close to town for food or other day trips. Would definitely go back!

Fantastic location right on the lake with kayaks/ canoes available to use free of charge, although the back rooms do face onto a busy road. With the windows open it is noisy. Slightly strange set up within the B and B because most of the rooms open directly into the owners kitchen and dining room. As a result there is... More

Hello, thank you for a lovely weekend. Our hosts were amazing with great advice. Elaine is an awesome cook. The location was perfect (not too far from the city) and close to amenities and other cottage country friends. Hugs to puppy.

We had a great time and there is a wonderful lake to enjoy. We had a different breakfast each day and our hosts went out of their way to help us feel at home and enjoy our stay.
