  • The location is absolutely fantastic, loved the serenity and views

    The location is absolutely fantastic, loved the serenity and views. But as night falls trout flies are everywhere, there is no escaping it. The next morning you have to clean out the dead insects which is not pleasant really. So if you have any intolerance towards insects, this is not for you. Also, could do with some kayaks/paddle board to cruise the lake (would have been happy to pay extra).

    This location is simply magical , where as the buildings are getting a little old & tired, needing some maintenance etc. Having said that , it truly feels like the old Bach holidays many of us remember from our childhoods & has everything you need. The new couches are great & really comfortable. The toilet flush box needs to be fixed, as it doesn't turn off fully when full! Overall we have enjoyed it so much , we're booked to go back for 17 nights later in the year!

  • The location is 5 stars

    The location is 5 stars. Very private right on the lake your own private beach large lawn and fantastic views. It was great we cld take our dog who loved swimming any time. The bach is old and a bit tired however the rental cost reflects that for it's location. Couple small things that need attending and BC have been notified. Well stocked bach. Nice touches fresh flowers, lemons on arrival were appreciated. Had a great time and would love to visit again (without the trout flies :o).
