My wife Lynne and I, along with our lovely flat coat retriever "Tasha", spent 3 glorious nights at this magical abode. A gem in the case of our warm hosts Tania and Dave....and of course "Jaegar"....the friendly keeper of the castle. The other gem being the island that is Pender. We've never had such a relaxing stay than at Gnome's Hollow.....our room ( Garden)...has the most wonderful view of the garden....and the calming sounds of the waterfall...act as a natural lullaby....if you have trouble sleeping.....this is the place for you. Dave is a great story teller.....and has a wealth of knowledge about the Island.....if you want to know the secret hideaways, beaches....and places to eat.....he's your man. Tania....is a wonderful host.....her healthy breakfasts are to die for......no fat laden fare here. I can't thank them enough for making us feel like family....and for accepting Tasha as a part of their family during our stay....we were truly humbled by their genuine warmth and hospitality.
Suffice to say......we will definitely be returning to this "Gem within a Gem".
