Sue and Mike welcome you into their home more as old friends coming for morning tea than guests paying to stay in a hotel. Everyone here was very friendly and helpful, offering restaurant recommendations, what things are best to see in the area, and information on current local events.
Beautiful location several acres of yard, with apx 100 acres of unused farm land behind, providing a scenic view of the hillside, about 10 minutes out of town.
The food is amazing and offered in a rather large quantity. Some of the meals we had were homemade gingerbread waffles, locally picked blueberry pancakes, and a salmon omelette that will practically cause a Pavlovian response of mouth watering every time you think of it. They also provide local berries, tea, coffee, and or juice with each meal, and are flexible about meeting dietary requirements for their guests. While we were here a vegan couple stayed overnight, and Sue and her daughter looked up recipes and baked well-received gluten free vegan friendly muffins, even offering them some for their drive back to the airport after breakfast.
The atmosphere is pleasant and relaxed, if you want to stay in your room your left to yourself and not disturbed, if you want to sit and visit they're more then happy to oblige. They offer DVDs which you can watch in your room or downstairs, and have a small library of books as well.
Our room was spacious and had plenty of storage for the two of us to unpack for the week, with a good sized attached bath. They double checked with us the first day about our preferences regarding privacy if they could come in daily for the towels and cleaning as well as checking what time we'd like to be up for breakfast.
Have will continue to recommend the Creekside Bed & Breakfast to any and all.
