  • Great location and fantastic place to stay

    Great location and fantastic place to stay. We loved the quietness and surrounding nature. The place was spacious and our kids had a lot of room to play and run around. It was a little bit cold as expected for this time of the year but the heat pump helped a lot. We would definitely come back a second time maybe when our younger one is a little bit older and can do more walking as there are so much possibilities at the Lake and nearby. Thank you for having us stay making it a great holiday!

  • Great batch

    Great batch. Very clean. A good spot for when it’s colder weather. The wood fire kept us nice and warm and there’s also a heat pump.
