To say this was the perfect trip is an understatement. My family was able to share our wedding day with my husband and I, even though we initially wanted to elope. Christi was so accommodating from the moment I contacted her about the wedding date in Feb. until we left the inn. We stayed at the Sugar Bear Cottage with...

This place was one of the best B&Bs I've ever stayed at. Serene, clean, and stunningly picturesque. The charm of the place was matched only by Christi's outgoing warmth & hospitality. Plus, so many amenities & fun things to do are included - kayaking, fishing, canoeing, jacuzzi, paddle boarding, smores by campfire, etc. This place is good for the weary...

The inn is on Bear Pond and she supplies paddle boards, kayaks, canoes, and a paddle boat for her guests' use. (She also has beach towels and...

I don't frequently stay at inns but this was super convenient. The staff (especially the owner) were so friendly and efficient and could not have been more accommodating. The room was cozy, quiet, delightfully furnished. (Not used to such a small bed.) Breakfast was great and MORE than I expected. On property beach, boats, fireplace, etc. MUCH MORE than I...

Christi was born to be an Innkeeper, always available yet never intrusive, gregarious, fun, knowledgeable about the area and where to go, and efficiently keeping everything tip-top, the place is so well run and maintained. Her staff was a joy, busy, busy, busy, yet always smiling and never too busy...
