    Lovely quiet location with splendid views. Sparkling clean, great power shower and delicious breakfast. Welcoming and homely. Ample room to park and being given a key to access after hours was very helpful. I will return in the Spring. Keep up the good work Darlene!

    Very friendly older place, lots of tiny decorations. It feels like an elephant in a pocelaine shop. But as I said: friendly and cosy. Excellent breakfast also. The shore is not far away and accesseable by stairs.

    How does an extra large double bed compare to the size of a king bed? Does the king room have a private washroom? Thank you! (-:
