We had a little trouble finding the place initially but what a welcome we received when we found it! Paul and Bernie were so welcoming and friendly, and shared with us the story behind Maple Lodge over tea and homemade biscuits. Somehow they found out it was our wedding anniversary (my husband's doing, I suspect!) and surprised us with a bottle of sparkling wine.
The guest lounge was impressive, quite stately but with a homely feel - it was very well thought out. The guest room was cosy, a little smaller than the other b&bs we had stayed in but very clean, with thick carpeting, a really comfortable bed and its own patio. The shower was superb! There was no tv in the room so tv buffs would need to get their tv fix in the guest lounge, which has a nice flat screen tv.
Breakfast was lavish - the muffins were truly award winning and the pancakes ... really yummy. Paul even gave us some muffins to take away with us when we left. Maple Lodge was pricier than the other places we had stayed in but the warm hospitality, beautiful place and good food made for an anniversary we would not soon forget.
