  • Great Place, Close to town

    "This was out first time in CB and we couldn't have picked a better place to stay. 2 Blocks from town made it easy to shop and dine. The hot tub was perfect for the evenings and chilly morning too. There was plenty of room or a family of 5! It was great to sit on the deck in the evenings for a drink high up in the trees. The house has a great vibe, relaxed and you feel right at home. The owner was super helpful with suggestions on where to go and what to see. We would definitely stay there again!"
