  • Our family of four loved our three-night stay at Miller Bach

    Our family of four loved our three-night stay at Miller Bach. With a mix of sun and rain during our stay, we had space to relax and found all the entertainment we needed. Lots of interesting books and fun games during the rain. The Dam was a hit with the kids and we loved exploring the tracks on the property. Thank-you for sharing your family bach for others to enjoy!
