My husband treated me to a 2 night stay here...he forgot about arranging childcare for our 4+6 yr olds!!

Stunningly quaint, unique touches to this gorgeous " back in time" cottage!! Tv, CD player/ radio,...

We had an excellent time in Russell, Marylinn at Ounuwhao really is an expert at B&B experiences for young, and old. I highly recommend this place on anyone's list of must hit B&B's. The breakfast is truly gourmet, the cats are snuggly and the house is warm and inviting. 10/10.
