Excellent value! Excellent service!
Excellent value! Excellent service!
We love traditional B&Bs and thought about staying in one but this was such an unique opportunity and we are so glad we stayed there. What a wonderful experience! The boat is beautiful. It's in a great location. Jean has thought of everything to make your stay perfect. She's an incredible hostess. We stayed four nights and loved every minute of it. Thanks Jean (and Dave)!
