“Great for a getaway”
Reviewed 17 October 2013

The hosts at this B&B are very friendly and helpful. They were willing to spend as long as we needed to tell us about the options for food and entertainment in the area and were very knowledgable.

It is immaculately clean. Probably the cleanest we have ever stayed at.

They provided snacks in the evening and a great breakfast in the morning.

Their wi-fi had a strong signal and fast date transfer. We were able to watch Netflix in our iPad with no problems, which surprised us considering their remote location.

We would recommend this place highly to anyone who likes B&Bs.

Room Tip: No swimming pool or fitness center, which is typical for B&Bs. The Wheelwright room's bathro...

Stayed here for a night for a wedding. Took a cab from the B&B to the ceremony and told the cab company we would need a ride back later in the evening. Around 11 we called the cab company and they told us it would be a 2 hour wait. The owner, Barry, came and personally picked us up from the wedding and drove us back to the B&B.
Breakfast the next day was fantastic
I would highly recommend staying here

Had a great overnite at this B&B. Owners were so friendly I made an immediate connection with them. Breakfast was out of this world and they made special accommodations for my husbands
restrictions and he still had lots to eat. But best of all was how clean the home was. Not a bit of dust or dirt anywhere. No musty smells, sheets and blankets smelled fresh and clean and bed was very comfortable. I wanted to stay longer. Fresh flowers on the dinning room table were fresh from the garden and beautiful.

Room Tip: I think we had the only queen bed, but they had other options.

From the phenomenal breakfasts to the cookies and cake after skiing we truly enjoyed our stay with Peggy and Barry. They make sure you feel right at home and you are comfortable. I loved the wood burning stove in the evenings which made the place toasty warm. The dogs are great as well. A great place for a Gore ski weekend!

We stayed at the alpine homestead last weekend. The house is beautiful and I especially liked how they decorated the outside with little fancy tables and rocking chairs etc. The surrounding is very peaceful and calm. It is about half an hour drive from the lake beach which is not too bad. The hosts were very warm and friendly and offered great breakfast every morning we stayed there. I agree with other reviews that the breakfast is multi course and very delicious. I would recommend this B&B for a quick retreat on the lake!

We stayed at the Alpine Homestead as part of a work retreat and could not have been more pleased! Peggy and Barry were fantastic, tremendously attentive hosts! They acclmpdsted our every need and were more than happy to tailor our stay to oue schedules. They prepared delicious, extensive, multi-coursed breakfasts adjusted for our dietary needs and were more than happy to provide the recipes for the dishes we couldn't live without (which was most of them). The rooms were comfortable, well kept, and spotlessly clean, as was the entire house. Overall it was a complete pleasure staying with Peggy and Barry, and we couldn't have asked for more. I would recommend Alpine Homestead to anyone and everyone.

My kids love to camp with their papa, but this mommy prefers soft beds, air conditioning and private bathrooms. The perfect solution: drop the kids at camp and escape to this wonderful B&B. Peg and Barry were very friendly and made us feel right at home. The house is beautifully renovated and immaculate. As an added bonus, breakfast was amazing too! We've already tried their recipe for baked oatmeal at home. YUMMY!
