4.0 on August 30, 2017

This B&B is located only about 100 yards from the beautiful Green Lake. It is easily found with convenient parking. The room was nicely decorated with a very comfortable bed and Jacuzzi, very clean, and the host making breakfast was very pleasant. Breakfast was delicious and at a variety of times depending on your schedule. I can highly recommend this B&B.
