Making reservations for my lovely girlfriend to de-stress was the intention. finding lodgings suitable to enjoy a couple nights in tranquil place in her favorite town was what I was hoped I found. What I happened across at the White Heron Retreat was so far beyond our expectations that she still glows when she talks about it. Amy was absolutely fantastic. The retreat cottage is an amazing find for any person that is into yoga or meditation. There was no TV and that was a huge plus for us. The decor and use of space simply amazing. We have praised the White Heron Retreat so much we are now in competition with others we know to book a weekend. My favorite part still was the look on my girlfriends face when she first saw this sweet slice of tranquil heaven illuminated by over a dozen tea lights. The fresh flowers, natural foods, and hospitality of an amazing host has us looking for time to visit again... Thank You!!!

This B&B is a great find. It was exactly what we were looking for. This is a small private cottage so it's the perfect for privacy with a homey atmosphere. The proprietor provided delicious fresh food and provisions so we could cook breakfast for ourselves on our own time. The cottage is beautifully decorated, peaceful and overlooks a lake, right across from the rails to trails bike path. We'd definitely go back.
