At a Glance

Pencarrow Review

The stunning views from the front of this stately lodge continue in the back with 4 acres of established gardens, a waterfall, and the occasional deer. With its spacious, classy guest suites and attention to detail, accommodations are well-appointed. Everything has been carefully thought through by your hosts, Kari and Bill Moers—from the welcome gifts to the iPads and binoculars in each room. Breakfast is served any time you wish in the dining room or in your room. This is a place to relax and enjoy being looked after.
