We stayed for 4 nights and loved our time so much that we returned for one day after our safari. The owner Bonnie has created a lovely, quiet setting that is perfect before or after a safari or as a home base for exploring Kenya. The atmosphere is so tranquil we all slept wonderfully. The gracious staff will make you a cozy fire in the evening and a basket of fresh fruit in your room. We plan to stay here now every time we visit Kenya. This location is close to the Karen Blixen Museum which is wonderful to visit. The Breakfast is simple which was fine for us. Next door there is a lovely garden buffet on Sunday's we enjoyed.
