We spent the first half of our trip in the city, and the second half at Boon. With family nearby, it made perfect sense.
Pros: super comfortable. We were there in October, off season, so it wasn't crowded, but I can't imagine that being fully booked would change the atmosphere any. The room we stayed in was a unit with it's own private balcony and a fireplace....we shared a wall with a second room. Though we weren't there much during the day, every moment there was relaxing.
We were greeted by the friendliest woman I'd met in quite a while, and she set the tone for the location: earnest, not pretentious in the slightest, friendly, warm, and very relaxed.
The room was big, the fireplace was great. The bed was very good. Cork floors over hardwood, a fridge, and a great shower. We had to use the heat, and it took some practice to get the heater and the fireplace to work together well (tip: set the heat super low, as the fireplace puts out a lot of heat).
In the cooler months they deliver breakfast. Great coffee.
The location is great. Clear sky, huge trees, a short bike ride (they have bikes you can borrow) to the Armstrong Woods, as well as a very short distance to town. We didn't get a chance to try their restaurant in town, but we've heard good things.
Everyone we talked to knew about the hotel and spoke well of it.
All in all, it's a fantastic place. We'll be staying at Boon every chance we get.
