Spent one night here while our kids were away at camp. We had a lovely time and the breakfast was delicious. The cottage was clean, comfortable and well maintained. The inn keepers were very friendly and helpful. You can walk to many shops downtown and there's a brew pub near by that my husband really liked. Give it a try,...

Well cared for Bed and Breakfast. Chocolate and port in your room. Breakfast was wonderful including fudge sauce to spread on bread and/or strawberries. 😃 The hot chocolate was absolutely the BEST I have ever tasted. Thank you Lisa and Larry!!

The Hot chocolate is one of my favorites as well! Come back in the winter and enjoy it by the fire--it's even better! Thanks for this lovely review. We enjoyed meeting you and sharing our chocolate obsession with fellow chocoholics! Enjoy!

We stayed for a summer weekend while picking our camper up from Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp. We were fortunate to be able to nab the last available room due to a cancellation. It was among the best B&B stays that we've ever had. The innkeepers, Larry and Lisa were apparently made for this kind of work, as they hosted...
