My husband and I stayed here over Christmas and it included our 20th wedding anniversary. The hosts were wonderful, providing excellent food and hospitality and even going out of their way to make our anniversary so special with a special request from myself! Such peaceful lakes and scenery. Other overseas guests were also special people.

Beautiful peaceful environment. Our room had it's own entry through glass sliding doors. Through the doors was a view of snow capped mountains as was the view from our window. The lounge is very comfortable, hosts full of information and enthusiasm. Home baking delightful. Peaceful and quiet.
