Richard and Ellen's house is beautiful and comfortable. I was a little leery about the idea of a bed and breakfast at first since I was concerned about the invasiveness of staying in somebody's house, but I was quickly put at ease. Richard and Ellen were helpful, friendly, immediately putting us at ease. Breakfast was very, very good and Richard recommended a couple restaurants for dinner that were excellent. We stayed in the Garden Room, which I loved. The bed was big and soft, the bathroom has a deep whirlpool tub, and the room has nice french doors opening out onto a patio with seating and a table. Drinks and snacks were provided throughout our stay as well as everything we needed to enjoy ourselves at the lake including beach towels, floats, a paddle boat and lounge chairs. I plan to return the next time I have a good excuse to have a weekend away from home.
