This was our first stay at a B & B and it was very enjoyable. Barb and Bill are great and their home is first class. The breakfast was excellent. Bill and Barb both provide very good information about where to eat and what to see. We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed in the Loft which is very private with a beautiful view of the lake. We sat on the dock and enjoyed the sunset but missed the sunrise. Breakfast the first day was Finnish and delicious. Barb and Bill are wonderful hosts, explaining not only the food but being great tour guides. We hope to return!

Bill and Barbara Briggs offer very comfortable "beds" in their unique lake-side home. If you're lucky, the breakfast will be Barb's specialite - a Finnish breakfast, complete with Thimbleberry jam. Highly recommended,would definitely stay again.

Our stay at Sheridan on the Lake B & B was superb! Innkeepers were extremely knowledgeable about surrounding restaurants and sites to see, as well as warm conversationalists and exceptional cooks! The traditional Finnish sauna was such a relaxing treat! Can't wait for our next stay!
