July 9/2009 Henning, we thank you so much for being such a friendly host. As I write I am enjoying the fabulous scenery. It was a pleasure to have an interesting chat with you. The down comforter and soft bed were conducive to the relaxing sleep we had. What a delicious breakfast! We are so thankful we found your little bit of Heaven. All the best to you and your family.

What a beautiful location for a B&B. It is located on a small peninsula on 108 Mile Lake and is very private and comfortable. There are four huge bedrooms and baths and a gorgeous area to eat outdoors. If the weather is hot you can go for a walk around the lake or swimming. A great place to kick back and relax for a couple days.
