The cottage we chose, called the "Pear Cottage", had an excellent view of the lake. The deck was large with plenty of room to sit in the sun, or bbq in the evening. My sister and I found this BnB to be one of our favorite places to stay. Our hosts were warm and friendly and made us feel like family; they were helpful in pointing out areas for viewing wildlife and the local charm of the lake. We will definitely return for more pampering!

The Innkeepers, Buddy and Yvonne, were very knowledgeable of the area and especially helpful. The grounds were beautiful, the setting was spectacular, and the breakfasts were decadent. The cottage we stayed in was very well equipped and comfortable with special touches like the yummy chocolates and vanilla sherry. Besides all this, it was a truly relaxing and peaceful environment; perfect for a get-away and a chance to enjoy nature's beauty.

We were warmly greeted by the innkeepers upon our arrival. The scenery and atmosphere were beautiful! Our selection of which cottage to choose was difficult because all were so charming. The hosts were very helpful in suggesting restaurants for dining and places to visit. One afternoon we rented kayaks nearby and the next day we went wine tasting at two nearby wineries. Every afternoon when we returned waiting for us inside our cottage were decadent chocolates, cookies or truffles. Also a decanter of vanilla sherry for sipping..yum! Lastly we must mention the delicious breakfast delivered to our door each morning! We will refer all our friends and family to Gingerbread Cottages and we will return!

Wow!! We were on a two week trip through California and this was our last long stay. We were greeted warmly by Buddy and Yvonne and immediately made to feel "at home". The setting was amazing. The hospitality was incredible. And the food...absolutely blew me away. I kept asking people if this was what all B&Bs were like; if they are, I am definitely sold. Yvonne and Buddy: you made our stay in Nice an incredible experience. The cottage was beautiful and we certainly will be making the effort to return!! I will be recommending you guys to everyone. "Two thumbs WAY up!" Cheers!
