Lovely B&B

Posted Oct 2, 2016
This is a charming old farmhouse with (I think) 3 rooms for rent. We stayed in the garden suite, which is a nicely appointed room with a queen bed. The bed was comfy and the pillows were nice. There was a keurig in the room, which was a really nice touch. The only drawback to this room is the bathroom is not in the room, and I must have overlooked this during booking. It is in the main "hallway" with all the bedrooms, so we initially thought it was a shared bathroom, and we were a bit disappointed. The inn keeper placed a privacy screen in front of the bathroom, but some of the other guests still used our bathroom (even though they had their own in their room) for part of the night. There must of been some sort of discussion, because this stopped by the end of the night, and it was "our bathroom" only again. I'm a very private person, so although the garden room was very nice, the semi-private bathroom idea wasn't for me. However, this might not be an issue for others. The grounds of the home has a trail through that woods that starts in the back yard. We did take a little hike on the trail, and it was really peaceful and beautiful. Breakfast in the morning was stuffed almond crusted French toast with sausage and fruit. It was excellent. The inn keeper was extremely friendly and shared stories about the area. We really liked her. Overall, I would recommend this B&B. If you prefer a true private bathroom, though, I would book one of the other suites here.

Blissful escape to the lake.

Pros: Everything.
From the moment we arrived at Onanda by the Lake we were impressed by the warmth and hospitality of our lovely hostess, Linda, and her beautiful guesthouse. The rooms surpassed our expectations. We stayed in the Woodlands suite and I would choose to stay in this room again because it is quiet and more spacious than the Lakeview suite where my sister stayed. I would not personally choose any of the other rooms since I prefer to have a private bathroom en suite. Our only complaint was that our stay was too short. The breakfasts were delicious and beautifully served, the accommodations superb and the location quite stunning. We did find the stairs a little steep to haul all our heavy luggage up to the first floor, but managed. (Since my husband lugged the heaviest cases!) All in all, a five star guesthouse with five star service. We hope to be back in theat beautiful part of the world again sometime - despite South Africa being a long way away.

Elegant but relaxing

Beautiful B&B that allows you to feel comfortable and relaxed. The breakfasts were delicious! We stayed in the Woodland Suite and our room was lovely. The sitting area overlooking the woods was great. There is a wooded trail leading from the back yard to a nearby state park. It was a wonderful way to spend our first afternoon. The innkeeper was very friendly and offered suggestions, calling to try to arrange a special tour for us. She was friendly without being intrusive. I would highly recommend this B&B!
