          Thanks Tobie for the one night stay. Glad you enjoyed it and thanks for the great review!

          Very attentive hosts, charming and excellent old historical buildings and antique furniture and lovely breakfast. Close to island lake for canoeing and bird watching, and lovely walking around the area.
