Our family met here for a quiet get away. The house is very warm, inviting and clean!

The scenery was nice and we enjoyed the neighbor's farm animals.

Nice quiet get away. Plenty of room.

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing weekend. Our goal was to get out of the city and have some family time. This place had everything it promised. I would say it’s geared towards more adult /older kids than families with smaller children. The owners were extremely responsive to questions during our stay. Only thing that I would change is a bit more comfortable sleeping arrangements. Overall, we are happy with our experience.

Ladies Lake Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying in the lovely B & E house. The guest cottage was adorable and the home was well appointed with comfortable beds, soft towels, plush couches and all the comforts of home. The lawn was gorgeous with big beautiful trees and open views. Simply perfect.

Lots of things to do indoors and outdoors, beautiful home and property

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved our stay here at the B&E, and were surprised by how big the home and property were. Our 2 and 5 year old enjoyed running around, lounging on the hammock, and catching catfish in the pond. They loved seeing the farm animals on the way to the home and when we got there seeing a bunny relaxing in the backyard. The kitchen was fully stocked and we were able to prepare all of our meals ourselves while staying here. Charming, well-kept, no hassle, lots of amenities, beautiful scenery! We would definitely stay here again, and will recommend to friends and family.

Thanks a lot Kelly!
