we've stayed in a dozen B&Bs in five states and Hidden Lake was simply the best, hands down. everything was first class.pastoral, peaceful location a definite plus. getting to know one of the owners a little bit was a big bonus -- super lady. we're looking forward to a return visit soon.

Our hosts were wonderful to talk to and the room was more than we expected. It was very hard to leave! We will definitely be back again soon. MaryJo made us chocolate covered strawberries and they were probably the best ones we've ever had. Thanks for a wonderful trip!!

John and Mary Jo have outdone themselves as owners of the establishment. The food was sooo yummy and the rooms were perfect. I highly recommend this B&B to all my friends and hopefully we'll get to come back soon. I didn't want to leave. It was just so very pleasant and relaxing.

Great Stay at Hidden Lake B&B

Rooms, home, and grounds were all very lovely. Breakfast was not only delicious but beautiful to behold.

Great romantic get-away

My husband and I reserved two nights at Hidden Lakes Bed and Breakfast. The room was beautiful, and the service and food were great. The location is ideal for nature lovers, as it is very close to several parks with hiking trails. The "little grand canyon" trail is especially awesome - but requires you to be in good physical condition.

Wonderful stay

This was the best find we have had in a B & B and we have been doing weekend getaways for many years. The room were beautifully appointed and so clean that I felt like I was at home. The grounds were beautiful and impeccably maintained. Mary Jo put on a spread of food each morning that was not only delicious but beautiful, which made us skip lunch each day. Mary Jo went about and beyond making reservations for us to go horseback riding and packing a lunch (which we didn't eat until 3 PM because of breakfast) that was spectacular. Do yourself a favor and stay with Mary Jo & John!!!
