We were 2 adults and our 7 yr old son in the group. Firstly, to stay in a B&B is a mind set. I've always stayed in private rooms, so this was a first for me. The location was great, right on West Lake, and we stayed in the double room known as the 'beachfront' room. It has it's own deck and chairs and was 20 feet from a private beach. When you look across the lake you can see the Sandbanks!
Unfortunately the room lacked the privacy I would like. You enter either through a small doll/miniature shop the lady runs OR through a lockable door at the lakefront of the home. Now that might seem OK to you, but the store entry had French doors with glass panes and curtains to be drawn from the store side only! I would have liked the curtains to be on my side of the door to prevent snooping people from looking into the room. No locks on those doors either, so a bit nervous leaving valuables behind. A bit unsettling for us. Thankfully for us, bad bad for her, there were no customers to worry about.
The room was a decent size with 2 double beds, a table with 2 chairs and a small sofa. [Note to tall people, beds are short and have foot boards, so a bit of a tight sleep for 2 people] Another drawback is that the washroom facilities were at the other end of the house and the shower was located in her bedroom. Not very private or sensible to this city slicker!
She made a wonderful breakfast for us and she was a pleasant lady. Too bad that the room wasn't in a better position within the house. She has other, smaller rooms to let, which might be better for you. Please inquire with her.
