We stayed at Le Bleu Ridge for a weekend to explore the local wineries and vineyards. We could not have chosen a better bed and breakfast. The owners were extremely hospitable and kind, even waiting up for us Friday night after we hit heavy traffic and arrived three hours later than we originally planned. The B&B itself was charming and I definitely recommend booking the cottage if there is availability. Also, the meals were fantastic -- generally three courses with fruit and yogurt, a main dish, and a dessert. The breakfast here was a great start to the day. Overall, we had a great experience and will certainly be visiting again, and have recommended Le Bleu Ridge to all of our friends.

My girlfriend and I stayed at Le Bleu Ridge for our one year anniversary and were extremely satisfied with our stay. The breakfasts that Danielle cooks up are amazing, the rooms are very clean and tidy and the overall service that they provide is top notch. As a bonus Flying Fox winery is right next door so you can easily get wine there. Additionally there are tons of wineries in the area that you can check out. I would definitely stay there again.

This ended up being a great place to go for a mother/daughter weekend. The cottage was perfect for our small group; the meals and hospitality were delightful. I'd very much recommend this place! There is a kitchenette in the room, which is small but could come in handy. We didn't need it. It's a bit far from the interstate but a beautiful drive.

Marcel and Danielle are such wonderful hosts, and the B & B is delightful. The rooms are large and very well-kept, and personalized attention was given since the B&B doesn't hold too many guests. The breakfast is possibly the best breakfast I've ever had: homemade yogurt, vegetable quiche, amazing french toast with turkey bacon, and tons of fruit and juice. The location is great, in a quiet neighborhood but still very close to vineyards, restaurants, and hiking/driving trails. We would definitely love to come back soon and highly recommend Le Bleu Ridge! Thank you Danielle and Marcel!

My husband and I spend 3 relaxing nights and enjoyed 3 incredible morning feasts! To call it breakfast seems to understated, the food was prepared with fresh local ingredients, with a generous portion of love. Served with a warm friendly smile. We look forward to returning one day soon! Highly recommend!
