Smaller accomodations near Plitvice that will provide transport to the Park

I thought I read in Rick Steve's blog that there are private B&B's that will provide a ride to the park and pick up from where the buses arrive. I am not seeing any on so far. Can anyone give suggestions? It seems the 3 large hotels are mainly for tour groups, as none have openings even in a years advance for Sept 2017!

We stayed at Villa Lika and there is a path to walk over to the park, so you can leave your car at the Villa and not pay for parking. You walk through the village, then get on the path. The path is very pleasant. They had a great breakfast (included) and delicious dinner if you want to eat there at an extra charge. We found the path was not significantly different in length from the path that leads from the parking lot, across the road, into the park and up to where the buses leave.

Is there a train or bus to take to Villa Lika if you're staying somewhere else up north

There are reasonably frequent buses from Zagreb to Plitvice Lakes National Park. I'd check with the hotel/B&B (email in English shouldn't be a problem) about public transportation. If they say there's a nearby bus stop, I'd try to confirm that independently (might be a challenge, but start with If the place is quite close to the park, you'd have the option of taking the bus to the park, then a taxi back to your accommodations.

Just got back from Croatia. We stayed @ Sedra in the park & absolutely loved it! Breakfast is included. Of course it is one recommended by RS, but not sure about providing a ride, maybe check their website. We had a car rental. We always avoid the big hotels!
