    Loved the lodge. It was beautiful to stay in a place surrounded with such lush greenery. It was perfect with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms all kept very clean.

    the location of essene lodge was fantastic. Quiet location in the country but so close to everything you would ever need - hamilton + cambridge were super close and perfect for quick trips. 2 great cafes were close to get a coffee fix :)

    Beautiful property in a tranquil setting. All facilities were of an excellent quality and we loved having the spa pool to relax in at the end of the day. A home away from home; we'll definitely visit again!
