Outstanding private accommodation with excellent facilities including hot tub. Beautiful peaceful setting. Personalised gourmet breakfasts hosted by Shane and Carol. We highly recommend this B&B.

We had a wonderful stay. The room was lovely, spacious, great shower and lots of nice little details. We would have loved staying another night. Hopefully we will be able to come back. The deer in the morning, the quiet location and the gourmet breakfasts are well worth it!

The breakfasts were amazing. They were like tasty works of edible art. The accommodations were spacious and comfortable. The setting was in a beautifully kept tranquil yard allowing such peace and tranquility. The friendliness of the hosts and their advice on places to go see and dine were much appreciated and gratefully accepted. Our two hosts made us feel at home from the beginning and made our stay such a pleasurable one. I would highly recommend the Blanket and Spoon and am looking forward to returning again.

Shane and Carol were amazing hosts! From our telephone inquiry to our check out, we were given the royal treatment. The carriage house is new and very tastefully decorated with a super comfortable bed. Loved the walk in rain water shower! The wine and cheese and cracker plate upon arrival was most delightful and enjoyable. The breakfast next day was gourmet all the way...far exceeding our expectations. We would go back just for the breakfast...how can you beat organic local ingredients prepared by a top notch chef right in front of you. All round lovely property with all the amenities of home. We would definitely recommend this B&B to friends and go back ourselves.

Room Tip: The carriage house is very private and romantic for a couple.

We used Blanket and Spoon as an overnight stop for an early morning flight the next day. What a good choice. Apart from the convenient location for the airport the accommodation, and our hosts, were first class.

We were extremely well looked after from the wine and cheese at arrival to the well prepared refrigerated breakfast so that we could get away early next morning. Shayne even printed off directions for the restaurant we had chosen to eat at in the evening.

Shane and Carol provided us with a gorgeous venue for our photo shoot. Beautiful coach house and environs, and creative, delicious gourmet meals, presented artistically in their lovely home. Definitely a little gem.

Room Tip: The Coach House is very special; it's separate from the house, and offers a hot tub and views o...

An amazing place! The carriage house suite was spacious, airy, and comfortable, with a lot of privacy. The setting is idyllic - a lovely escape from the urban jungle - and yet close enough to amenities and attractions that you never feel at a loss for places to visit or places to eat. Shayne and Carol were very gracious as hosts, always ready with advice on the area, amusing stories, and help (if needed) with anything to do with the suite or hot tub, etc. And the breakfasts... ah, that would be a whole other review, but they were spectacular - different, delicious, and generous, and could be tailored to your specific dietary needs. Highly recommended!
