Had a great time while staying at the B&B. Owners arranged an impromptu shuttle when our plans changed after they had already ran another shuttle for us the previous day. Planning on making another trip. We'll be staying at Borcher's.

We always spend Memorial Day week-end with our entire family at Borcher's. Mark and Cheri are the best hosts, and their staff is excellent. Highly recommend.
