This property is situated on Burnt River and features eight rooms. This B&B is well suited for guests looking for a lakefront cottage experience as there are multiple on-site recreational activities available.

All rooms are smoke free and include a sitting area, a fireplace and a TV and DVD player. Select rooms feature views of the neighbouring waterfalls, while some rooms are equipped with a jetted tub and/or a steam shower. Two rooms have an en suite bathroom and a shared shower. Irons and ironing boards, binoculars, hair dryers and curling irons are available on request.

A free breakfast is served daily. This property does not have an on-site restaurant, however, guests may arrange other meal services prior to their arrival, for an additional fee.

On-site recreational activities and equipment include canoes, kayaks, paddleboats, bikes, swimming, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. The hosts at this B&B can also arrange dog sledding and para-sailing excursions. Other on-site amenities include free parking, a guest kitchen stocked with complimentary popcorn, cookies, ice cream, tea, coffee and cold drinks, decks, a BBQ, bike and ski storage and copy and fax service.

Writing chose Tammy from the moment she could hold a pencil. The stories may have changed through the years, from creative fiction to television news reporting, but Tammy's passion for words (and fondness for pencils) continues on.
