“Not bad”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

The lodge is around 3 miles from Sky Bridge located in a very quiet and scenic area. It is a nice place to stroll in the mornings or evening. Breakfast was really good and the lady host was very nice. All amenities were present. We stayed for 2 nights.

Reviewed 13 May 2012

The lodge is located in a very quiet and scenic area, a nice place to stroll in the mornings or evening, that is about all that is nice about it.

I chose this place for a 4 night stay because I read on their web page that the proprietor was a retired railroad man, as is my husband. It is to bad that when we tried to initiated any conversation it was like trying to talk with a wall, no response.

The beds at this B&B are terrible, you could feel every spring in the mattress and a good nights sleep was nowhere to be found. I thought since the first part of Bed & Breakfast was BED, that would be an essential part of the package. Not so here. You would be more comfortable on the rocks at the shore!

Also, the web page says there is a mini fridge in the room, we did not find one. And as the previous review states, there are lots of signs for do's and don't's. Not a very friendly place.

Breakfast was suitable fare, but the hospitality was very lacking.

If you want a good nights sleep, go elsewhere. I will not visit here again, nor would I recommend this place.
