We wish we had planned to stay here longer. This was our first stop after Victoria, and it was a nice change-up. This is not the place to go for night-life or to use your internet or a TV; this is a place to go and hang out on the large porch for hours watching the water buffalo be herded and gazing up at the green hills. The B&B is at the end of a somewhat long gravel road, though still not too far away from Duncan; Duncan is pretty sleepy after about 5. The B&B is now run (as of this spring) by one of the daughters who grew up on the farm and recently came back to stay, meaning that this is the third generation investing themselves in the farm, which I think is great. Maryann was very helpful, and the room was quiet and comfortable. Breakfast was absolutely huge and tasty.
