A New Review!

We got our first Yelp review! Here's what they had to say. . . My husband and I can't say enough when it comes to the hospitality we received when staying at this wonderful bed and breakfast. Traveling all the way from California, we wanted to stay in a comfortable, clean, and accessible place. When we arrived, we received warm welcomes from Mike and Carol. Upon entering the lodge, you quickly feel at home. The living room is spacious, and has huge windows to look out and enjoy the scenery. We stayed in the loft, which is a lot bigger than the pictures show. It has extremely high ceilings, which is perfect for tall people . The bed was extremely comfortable and the bathroom was nice and clean. (Unlike other lodging places in the area) To top it all off, breakfast was delicious! Carol made us home made biscuits and gravy followed by stuffed French bread topped with strawberries and cream. Both Carol and Mike made it a point to give us our space when staying there, but with such warm and inviting personalities, it was hard not to engage them in our conversations. Staying here is worth every penny, and we look forward to staying here in the future.
