    Dick and Cherie were fantastic hosts, the cottage is really lovely and its location in the Mahoe hamlet is excellent. The picturesque outlook was beautiful and relaxing. We had the lucky opportunity to catch and release a few Trout too. Had a beer and talked fishing with Dick, which was a real highlight. Thanks so much for a lovely stay and we will be back. Totally recommended.

  • Loved this property

    Loved this property. Woke up in the morning and saw such a beautiful view and top of that bird singling made me enjoy this property even more. There were plenty of firewoods and stayed warm whole time while I was there. Bed is so cozy and comfortable.
