We spent six nights here to do some early season mountain biking and had a hard time choosing between the B&B's in town, but we were completely satisfied with our choice to stay at PML and will definitely stay here next time we return.
The house and rooms are all comfy and clean. The living room is a great place to hang out before breakfast or after a day out. Chris takes a lot of care in personally planning and preparing breakfast each morning (which we're trying to re-create back home now). He'll also take the same care in helping you plan your day - skiing, biking, shopping, dining, or anything else you can name. Chris clearly loves this town and will make sure you enjoy CB as much as he does, particularly if you're an active traveler.
Heather is an extraordinary massage therapist and we highly recommend a session in the spa room in the house during your visit. Make your appointment early - it seems she also has a loyal local clientele and stays busy. Between Heather and twenty minutes in the hot tub out back, you have no excuse to not sleep soundly each night.
Finally, Makaylah is the nicest, mellowest dog I've ever met. But Chris wouldn't let us take her home with us - that was the only disappointing part of our stay.
