Guest Review

We are already taling about staying there on future visits to the area.

We booked the cottage so that our two dogs would be comfortable over the weekend stay.  I think they enjoyed the trip as much as we did!

Waht an amazing stay!  Everything was perfect for our relaxing weedend.  Rich and Kim were the best hosts ever!  I highly recommend staying here.  We will for sure be visiting again.  Thank you Rich and Kimberly!

It was nice and quaint.  Amazing hospitality and exceptionally clean.  It has a very welcoming feel like home.  Thank you for giving us a memorable stay.

A lovely unique Bed and Breakfast!  The owners are very attentive without being fussy.  The breakfast is absolutely wonderful, but the shared deck and outdoor fireplace that is stocked is just the best! Everything you could want in a mountain lodge.  We will definitely come back again!

Lovely place, very very clean.  Breakfast was great both mornings.  A very comfortable bed and the host were the best.  We hope to go back again.

The nicest and cleanest pet friendly room we've ever stayed at.  Wonderful hosts and a delicious breakfast.  We would highly recomment Grafton Lodge.

The breakfast was awesome.  Blueberry pancakes with fresh whipped cream, berry-based real maple syrup. I think it was the conversation with the owners and other guest that sealed the deal!
