This is our second trip and this time we brought friends. Wow. Everything was great and was even better than our first trip.


Our family enjoyed the old fashioned game room in the main lodge (scrabble and other board games, puzzles etc), the friendly service, and cooked breakfasts.


Thank you so much for the great experience and a safe, comfortable, clean B and B.
