I booked this for my father and his partner, they could not speak highly enough of the beautiful location and immaculate conditions of the property. Thank you so much!
Fantastic character! I loved the 'out of the way' feeling and the quirky, artistic cabin
The lodge is a work of art! We loved every minute of our brief stay here. The use of recycled wood throughout the space is beautiful. The copper on the floor, the amazing mosaic shower - stunning. We really enjoyed sitting on the huge deck having a drink and enjoying the peace and quiet. Thanks so much Kath and Dan. Hope to come back again soon.
