    Super location, easy walk to town & kids loved creating their own hot pools in the thermal sand. Bach is delightful, full of character and well equipped. The bach has its own thermal pool, so relaxing after a day on the lake. Highly recommend.

    The property was awesome to stay at. A really nice rustic house that looks likes it been enjoyed by many generations. So stoked to have the opportunity to stay so close to the lake front. Would definitely recommend this property and ideal for ironman events.
