What a paradise after a long drive. A real 'oasis' along the journey. The hosts Lynne and Wayne were most welcoming and friendly. The room was delightful, so comfortable and cosy, looking out onto the really beautiful, flower filled private grounds which surround the lovely wooden 'colonial' style house. Very peaceful and comfortable, like being a friend in their house, but at the same time you had your complete privacy.The wine and tidbits available in the guests' lounge was a nice touch and it was nice to casually meet the other guests who were all friendly and interesting. A peaceful atmosphere surrounded everything and everyone. The evening meal was very tasty and the conversation friendly and interesting.The breakfast was super. They made you feel as if you were a personal friend. I'd love to stay again.
