  • House was fine, clean and a great fire, plenty of wood

    House was fine, clean and a great fire, plenty of wood. We had trouble with the lock box and couldn't get in. Luckily the cleaner lived just down the road with a set of keys. There was no salt or pepper, not sure if i am being picky, but in other places a few basic bits were in the cupboard. Also picky maybe, but no potato masher. The world didn't end with these small inconveniences....Had a great time on the mountain :)

    Owner/manager responds:

    House was listed for sale, hence the amenities were missing. But it is off the market now, so have stocked up the Tea, Coffee, Sugar, Salt, Pepper, Spices, etc. Apologies for the inconvenience.

  • The old Forge was AMAZING

    The old Forge was AMAZING. The pictures don't do it justice. So much space but with the fire going it was so warm, dry and cosy. The perfect place to stay for Mardi gras as the buses picked us up just down the road an droped us off at the door. Was nice not to be in the hussell and bussell so we could relax quietly the next day. Highly reccomend!!
