Chalet Nicholas Review

John and Cathy Nicholas (and their three resident Great Danes) have converted their hillside home into a charming bed-and-breakfast with stunning views of the lake and volcano. The two rosewood rooms downstairs have tile floors. Up a spiral staircase lies the L-shape, all-wood double loft with three beds and a back porch that overlooks the large garden. All rooms have volcano views. Birds abound: 100 species have been cataloged on the grounds. The entire property is nonsmoking.
