Thanks to our lovely hosts Bill and Anna for making our time so relaxing.

First: well this is an apartment not just a B&B - bedroom, lounge and bathroom all beautifully furnished and ell appointed.

Then: a really large and comfy bed and a good hot shower.

And Finally: our hosts! - where to begin, welcoming and relaxed making us feel so at home. they were happy both to spend time chatting and leave us alone when we needed. Highlight were the fabulous breakfast provided by Analiese; I will not forget the waffle in a hurry.

add to this a perfect location right on the waterfront in a quiet bay..... perfect

many thanks folks

Chris and Simon

Owner's Response: That does sound wonderful but it's not our property. Woodland Lake Retreat is a full home not a B&B. I'm sure Chris & Analiese will really appreciate your review. Please repost to them.

It was great!

  • 5 of 5

We all loved the house. It was clean and a very good size. It has a lot of Windows, so you wake up and have a beautiful view of the lake. The only thing that we didn't love was that it didn't have WiFi, so we had to turn off our cellular data frequently. Overall, I would say it was a great house to rent, close to a grocery store, clean, cozy, and everything we wanted in a house. We will definitely rent again.

Great weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house was great for our weekend at the lake. Great views from the house and from the deck. Plenty of space for our dog to walk around in. The weather wasn't the best but there was still plenty to do inside the house with the board games and huge dvd collection. Will be renting this house again in the future!

Great weekend away!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great rental! This home has a well stocked kitchen, extensive DVD collection, and plenty of games to play inside. It was very clean upon arrival. The best part of this house is the large back deck, where you can sit and look out over the water. We spent most of our time outside as the weather was amazing, especially for March! Thank you for a great weekend away!
