  • This property was amazing

    This property was amazing. Right on the lake with fantastic views. The room was clean and very well stocked with everything and more we needed for our stay. Florence welcomed us upon our arrival even tho it was late. She showed us to our room which she had made cosy warm and welcoming by turning on the heater and lights. There's lots to do in the area like bush walks along the River, white water rafting, kayaks are available at the shack and the Okere Falls store has amazing breakfasts. our hosts Flo and Rod invited us to join them on their trip to the thermal hot pools across the lake which was lovely. They are friendly and went above and beyond to include us in their trip. We would definitely recommend the Love Shack as a place to stay. It was more than we expected and we will be back.
