I believe my co-guest wrote the below review, but here is mine, written before I knew:
Staying with Joyce and Doug was fantastic! We booked with them very last minute due to a mix-up with our previous reservation elsewhere, and it was the best thing that could have happened. The place was very cute and well put together. Also, before I forget, I must say, the bed was SO comfortable. Honestly the best sleeps I have had in ages, if not ever. The BnB itself, I believe, is three rooms on the ground floor and a washroom to share. This was more than comfortable, however, Joyce and Doug were happy to show us the washroom upstairs to use as well. The breakfast every morning was absolutely lovely-- talk about world class! Lots of fresh coffee, a fruit and granola cup, orange juice, and a scrumptious and fresh hot dish to top it all off. Doug and Joyce ate breakfast with us on the outside patio (surrounded by hummingbirds!), and chatting with them was so lovely, we sat for quite a while every morning just to enjoy the fantastic conversation. They also own a very sweet dog. The location was great—nice and quiet, and right along the old KVR trail—if you like to run or go for long walks, it would be perfect for you. I’ve stayed in several bed and breakfasts in different countries, and Joyce and Doug are by far the most welcoming, warm and generous hosts I have ever had. They really almost felt like family by the end (only three days!). I could not recommend staying here more, you will be so glad you did.
