“Relaxing and quiet place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 September 2013

Kimberly was very inviting , she made us feel at home right away, the breakfasts were fantastic, every day was a different meal. The Rovers Rest is ideally located for hiking, the beach and cycling. At the end of the day we enjoyed the hot tub it was very relaxing.

Thank you Peter for commenting on Kimberly and her ability to make you feel at home. We are glad you took advantage of the many outdoor activities and then enjoyed a good muscle soak in the hot tub after a busy day. See you soon David

We only stayed the one night but if we could have found the time we would have loved to stay longer. Kimberly was a wonderful host and the breakfast was excellent. The premises are secluded and peaceful. I would highly recommend this B&B

Kimberly met us as we rolled in and offered us a freshly baked cookie. From there it just got better. The room was large, clean, with a king size bed. We used the hot tub one evening and it was amazing sitting outside watching and listening to the wildlife. We managed to climb a few hikes which were very close by. Kimberly delivered us and picked us up. Excellent service. The local restaurant on the lake was only a minute away and served very good food. The local gas station/food store/liquor store had everything we needed. Would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask for the room with the King Bed.

We enjoyed our 1 night stay here so much that we booked 2 more nights on our way home. Loved the hot tub, the hummingbirds, the deck, the BBQ the very comfortable bed and all the little extras. Kimberly and Dave are lovely hosts and they provide fabulous full breakfasts. Just what we needed after 2 weeks visiting family. Wished we could have stayed longer! Thanks Kimberly and Dave. We'll be back. Highly recommend this lovely and relaxing B&B.

I don't know how anyone could say a single negative thing about this B&B! The owners have totally outdone themselves and thought of every detail... From turn down service to custom catered breakfast (my food allergy was no problem... Kim was very accommodating) I love all the little trinkets, the hot tub, the deck, all amazing and worth every single penny! For the other review saying it was expensive they obviously didn't price out any other local accommodations. For what we received and the quality of service I'm confident you can't find anything better!! Highly recommended and I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

My wife and I recently spent four nights at the Rover's Rest B&B, and the experience was wonderful. Kimberly and her husband David made us feel right at home. The view is lush and green, and our hosts helped us make the most of our time in the area with helpful suggestions such as which wineries to tour, and which hikes were recommended. The breakfasts were fantastic, which fresh cups of fruit, souffles, almond french toast, and other gourmet dishes.

We would definitely stay again!

Room Tip: The 'Heart of the Home' room was wonderful, and featured a king size bed, a door right onto...

As a business traveler, the traditional hotel gets old real fast, fortunately, Rover's makes me feel at home. How amazing it was to walk into a home and be greeted by the smell of fresh baked cookies and a hostess that is sweet as the cookies she served. After a long trip from the US, Kimberly I can only say thanks so much.

Room Tip: From what I saw, any room would be wonderful and the property is amazing.
