We had a very comfortable stay here for 3 nights. Rene is a great host, he is always up for a chat and should really write a book to describe his life - quite a few good stories!
The room was clean and a good size, we had an ensuite toilet but the bathroom was shared with one other room. This wasn't too much of a problem however as he provides nice fluffy bathrobes and we never had to wait to use the shower. The room was right beside the street but we didn't have too much trouble with noise.
Breakfast was nice, probably the best we had cooked for free in US and Canada. Rene was full of advice on where we should visit during our stay, the area known as "The Village" nearby is colourful (to say the least), wouldn't recommend to families after dark.
One awkward moment occurred when Rene left our omelette in the grill and didn't notice for 24 hours until he found it and thought we had tried to cook a chocolate cookie (??) and left the charred remains in there for him to clean up. He then told everyone else in the B&B that we had done this until we corrected him when we arrived at breakfast. Maybe a bit more subtlety would avoid offending other travellers. Just a thought? :)
Overall though we would return, it definitely is an experience you won't forget
