Private Room
Quiet, relaxing, private and a 6 minute drive to town. This 600 sq ft country cozy private walkout suite is surrounded by trees and has all the beauty that nature brings. Enjoy the singing if the birds in the morning as you sip your coffee on the back deck or a glass of wine at night by the bonfire with gourmet S'mores. Enjoy a wonderful cozy evening curled up in your private living area on comfy furniture watching a movie from our collection (or Netflix) with a bag of popcorn from the snack bowl. Hot breakfast included each morning to start your day, you will have a variety of choices from my custom menu. Great for a girls getaway, temporary work in Bancroft. Couples getaway, sightseeing or just travelling through. We also have a large u shaped driveway great for your ATV or snowmo...Quiet, relaxing, private and a 6 minute drive to town.
