The spacious master bedroom also has panoramic countryside views, a large HD TV, and the master bath has ‘his and her’ basins, an enclosed shower and a bathtub. All bedrooms have king beds and private access to individual decks.

The “Barn” is a separate fully self-contained cottage with its own king size bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and living area. It can be rented in addition to the Lodge, (but not on its own) to bring the sleeping capacity up to 10 people. Free wireless high-speed internet is available throughout the property.
