The lodge is a work of art! We loved every minute of our brief stay here.

  • 5 of 5

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.
