We stayed 4 nights at this sweet B&B an it is sweet in more ways than one. Debra is a most accomplished cook and her breakfasts will delight and amaze anyone. I got her and her colleagues cookbook. The room on the second floor has a nice little balcony with views of the lake. The hospitality is excellent.
