Our primary goal was to have a relaxing girls getaway for a few days and The Swiss Lodge truly met that goal. The house is located in a wooded area which provides privacy to read, take walks and enjoy the surroundings, yet the "lodge" itself is close enough to shopping/restaurants so that we could explore the area, and return early enough to enjoy all the amenities of the home. The hot tub, fireplace and outdoor grill were superb. There were initial issues with the workings of the hot tub and TV because the manuals were out of date. Calls to the owner were returned and all was fixed in a short time. As promised, the owners did provide plenty of towels and the beds were truly comfortable. We would suggest that the owners add slip proof pads in the upstairs tub for safety and maybe provide additional paper/plastic items for the kitchen. We enjoyed our time immensely at the property and we would recommend The Swiss Lodge for those looking for a quiet relaxing getaway with friends.
