The Ballard House Inn Is Perfect If You’re Looking For A Unique Getaway Experience

Check out this Google review from one of Feza’s guests left that sums up what you can expect when you visit the Ballard House Inn:

“We had a last minute weekend get away at the Ballard House Inn and our experience was fantastic. Fez was very accommodating and put us up in one of the upstairs Suites. Highly recommend upgrading to the suite as it comes with a beautiful view and plenty of space. The main downstairs entry way, dining area and rooms are in excellent condition and kept clean and up to date. The bathrooms come fully stocked and downstairs there is a fridge with beverages (soft drinks, beer, wine) and coffee and tea available. Breakfast is fantastic and Fez is an excellent chef. Just as an example, one morning we had cranberry olive oil bunt cake, fruit, home made quiche and sausage while the next morning we had chocolate chip muffins, home made chocolate bread french toast and Canadian bacon. So good!
Fez is also incredibly knowledgeable about places to go and restaurants to eat at. He helped us make reservations and set us up to enjoy our first snow shoeing experience.
We are looking forward to going back and can’t recommend the Ballard House Inn highly enough!.”
