The house itself is very nice and cosy. Everything we need is there. The view and distance from the lake are to die for. We would love to come back in the summer to enjoy the lake. The only BUT for us is that the place is hard to find especially during the night. Most of us have to really drive from house to house to find the right house number; a more obvious signage should fix this or unique landmark.
Lovely location and comfortable home with lots of character and everything you need to hand. The kids were comfortable in the three cabin rooms and the adults got to have the main house to themselves to relax after they had gone to bed - in the comfy sofas by lovely fireplace. Great views. Only hesitation was surprised to have to go outside for (very nice) bathroom - the inside en-suite is only really accessible for one bedroom during the night. Wasn't a problem for our group.
