A beautiful spot, glorious views, house a bit tired though.

Stayed September 2019

Really enjoyed our stay, amazing views, warm comfortable house. Kids had a blast & the spa was a highlight. None of us wanted to leave!

Stayed July 2019

Amazing view & fantastic spa. Plenty of room for 2 families. Direct access to lake. Not too far out of town.

Stayed July 2019

This is a nice house with a beautiful view. It is a good layout for 2 families with older children. However it is a little bit tired in places, and was not as well kept or clean as the pictures. Also the wifi was not reliable so this may be a problem for some families. The outside spa is wonderful, and the firewood and fireplace made it nice and warm. A nice place to stay, but not an indulgence. We all rated it a 3.5 star.

Thanks for your thorough feedback - we really appreciate it! This house does have the greatest views and the spa is a favourite with many guests however it does not fall into our indulgent category. We are sorry to hear that the cleanliness was not up to standard and there were issues with the Wifi but we will look to have this rectified.

We fell in love with home so much. Cannot wait to stay again . The balcony view was to die for out to the lake throughout the whole day. The spa pool was our high light...relaxing and soothing with the sound of nature to meditate on. The home catered for everything we needed. Very cosy and warm...the fireplace was amazing heating up the whole home. Totally enjoyed the espresso coffee machine. My kids so enjoyed all the board games too.

Thanks for a wonderful stay for our family. We absolutely loved the trail down to the lake and the many spaces for all. The view was spectacular and the autumn colours of the trees only added to this.
