My wife and I stayed here this past weekend with two other couples while in NOTL for a wine tour. This was our first B&B ever so we weren’t too sure what to expect. Needless to say, our wonderful hosts set the bar high! This house is stunning!! The rooms are top notch with ensuites and fireplaces. The lounge was so cute and full of games and coffee to keep us happy. Breakfast...was one of the best I’ve honestly ever had. Plated and served to us and better than restaurant quality. You could tell that much care and passion went into it. The coffee as well was amazing! For someone who regularly drinks 5 or so cups every morning, I need good coffee and this was phenomenal! The owners are so kind and sweet and so much fun. There are so many B&Bs in NOTL and it would be nice to try others as well but I honestly think we’ll just keep coming back here!
