We decided to go to St Arnaud (instead of another town which shall remain unnamed). We regretfully spent only one night at St Arnaud House B&B with Russell and Margery.
The reception was warm, and the evening we spent chatting with our hosts was very enjoyable. The bed was comfortable, the room exceptionally tastefully decorated, and everything was just perfect. Breakfast the following morning was top-class.
Without any hesitance we would tell our best friends to stay at Russell & Margery's delightful St Arnaud House B&B.
If there was one thing that would have improved this B&B even more, it would have been a view of the lake. But the excellent companionship of our hosts more than made up for that little "disadvantage." On the other hand, being in amongst the trees makes their home a very good place to watch birds, and my wife spent quite some time chatting to Margery about all the birds that come to their bird feeder.
We ill most definitely go to St Arnaud House B&B again... and again... and again...
