  • Lovely spot and cute little cabin with all the basic essentials

    Lovely spot and cute little cabin with all the basic essentials. We were very cosy, loved the river and walks. Will like to stay again and do some horse trekking. Was wonderful that we could take our dog.

  • Basic cabin with cooking and bathing facilities in pleasant bush

    Basic cabin with cooking and bathing facilities in pleasant bush. The ability to take horses and dogs is a big plus, hence the 4 stars. The stream, a minutes walk away, is attractive and there are a number of longer walks available. Not surprisingly, its location would best suit fine weather for most guests.

  • The lodge was clean and tidy

    The lodge was clean and tidy. It is basic, but was all we needed. It was wonderful that we could take the dog. It is a beautiful location in the bush, with a lovely walk up to a water fall, one hour return from the lodge. We will come again.
