Can only confirm what other reviewers have said. Randy and Stacey the owners go out of their way to make you welcome, the room is spotlessly clean and the breakfast brilliant - freshly made omlettes the morning we stopped. It's a 2 minute drive into the centre of town, or probably 15 minute plus walk. We drive as unfortunately raining...

Wonderful stay at the Dawson House. Big smiles from Randy greeted us upon arrival. Roomy, clean, comfortable and quiet rooms. Breakfast was excellent. It felt like we were having breakfast with our family. Randy and Stacey gave great directions on what to see and do, where to go for dinner. Could not have been better.
