The best for last
The hillsideview of the bay, the welcoming hosts...the comfy bed, the outside private patio, the daily breakfast delivered each morning to the room, the proximity to both sides of peninsula, the restaurants and grocer nearby...all was wonderful. One of our favorite stays!!

What a piece of heaven! The room and the grounds were beautiful and very well located. The hot tub at night overlooking the sunset was magical. If only we could have stayed longer!
Corinne, us1 night trip
Exceptional 10.0
Romantic vacation in Grafton
We stayed at Rata room (their smallest cabin) for three nights. The room and the attached porch had spectecular view of the town and the ocean, which was very romantic and just what we were looking for in our honeymoon. The room was very clean and well equipped. The only downside was there wasn't air conditioning, so one day it got really hot and it was too much for the standing fan in the room to handle...

Loved it!
Loved it! Our little chalet well exceeded our expectations. We put the hot tub to good use while watching the sunset over the harbor. The rooms were huge, quiet, very clean and had everything we could have wanted. We felt so at home it was a shame to leave. Their attention to detail is really what made us feel so special. This was the perfect getaway - thanks for having us!

What an unexpected pleasure!
What a wonderful and charming place! Lovely wooden cottages with high ceilings set up in the hills overlooking the township of Thames afforded spectacular views from the large picture windows and balcony. The hosts, Alby and Rachel, are delightful. Nothing is too much trouble. The nightcap liqueur amd home-made cookies to welcome guests were a real treat. Loved the spa. Handy to town and the attractions of Thames. Loved the place and wished I could have stayed longer.

Beautiful Suite with Stunning Views
The owner and staff were very friendly. The room was spacious with stunning views of the water. The welcome cookies and Baileys were awesome. It would have been helpful if they had maps of the local area. They have everything for you to be able to make your own breakfast. It would just have been nice if they supplied a few simple items like bread and cereal.
