  • What a beautiful wee cabin set in lush bush

    What a beautiful wee cabin set in lush bush. Very private ideal for an escape from town. We really enjoyed ourselves and felt very at home! Highly recomend for anyone that loves te bush and cooking on a lovely wee fireplace!

  • My wife and I really enjoyed staying in the cabin

    My wife and I really enjoyed staying in the cabin. If you want somewhere truly remote and very quiet, this is the place. Not much to do if you don't want to hunt or fish but then sometimes that's just perfect. Would definitely stay again. It's an effort to keep the place warm in the winter, but if you know how to use an old range for heating and cooking you will be OK.
