Spending two nights in this wonderful B&B was such a treat! You always think about staying in the city but only 30 minutes by train, we could be in the city. One would never expect to find such an architectural delight in the Belgian countryside. Nicholas and Catherine have converted this farm into the most amazing home. This is complimented by the most exquisite garden. From the beautiful flowers to the huge vegetable garden that is overlooked by their son. The breakfast was delicious, especially the jams that were all made by Catherine from their garden. Nicholas, Catherine and their children were great hosts and if they ever decide to do architecture in American, they can come do my house!

Tucked away between the cornfields and the cow pastures. Truly a pastoral setting. The Inn keepers are perfect hosts. Breakfast is great and well presented. The remodeling of the barn, which is the B&B section, is very well done, tasteful. Bathroom area in one room could have been a little bigger but it serves the purpose. One problem is that WIFI is not up to snuff in the rooms, but you can get it outside on the office side of the B&B. I was told that they would work on it and then I would return gladly.
