    We stayed two weekend nights at Bird House Inn. The breakfasts were simple and delicious, and the house was lovely. Our room was well-kept and bright. They had coffee, tea and wine available 24/7 which was a nice touch. Well done.

    It is three short blocks to the lake then about another three over to Bay View - or you can take the bike path for a short cut that would take about 5 minutes on foot.
