We stayed for a summer weekend while picking our camper up from Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp. We were fortunate to be able to nab the last available room due to a cancellation. It was among the best B&B stays that we've ever had. The innkeepers, Larry and Lisa were apparently made for this kind of work, as they hosted... More
