 What's not to like about this property? We had a large number of us attend and we had no issues with room as this property can cater to large groups for sure. The property had everything we needed so wasn't any need to venture out which was great. Great memories made at a great location. The view from the deck was amazing. Many hours spent just sitting enjoying the view! 

Lakeside wilderness lodge

 Great facilities and fantastic views. 

Historic Guest House

 Amazing property for a family getaway or just a weekend away with friends. The large number of bedrooms means that everyone can have their own space to relax. The three refrigerators mean you'll have plenty of space for food and beverages. I'd highly recommend this for anyone trying to find accommodation for to a group of five or more. 


 Excellent location and the big house is ideal for large family groups, especially for children. 

Nautilus Beach House

 We had a wonderful holiday. The house was perfect for 2 families. The location is beautiful. The beach was beautiful and safe. House has a Bach feel about it that invites you to put your feet up. The only problem was 6 nights didn't feel long enough, no one was ready to leave!
