We stayed at Orchard Nook for a long weekend and it was absolutely perfect. The place is small but very well thought out, spotlessly clean and comfortable. We wanted peace and quiet which we got but kendal was only minutes away and had everything. We can't wait to return, thanks Howard and Jenifer for a fabulous stay.
