My boyfriend and I had such a wonderful stay here. The Bed & Breakfast was beautifully decorated, super clean, and located about a 5 minute walk from the center of town. John was an incredibly helpful and friendly host, and on top of making us amazing breakfasts in the morning, gave us lots of hiking advice and recommendations for things to do in the town itself. I would Come back here in a heartbeat, and can't recommend this place enough to others.
