It was a lovely stay. Less rain would be the only thing that would have made it better but we were not there very long. The weather we understand is generally very good and sunny. It is nice to have so much daylight too. Our cabin location was very convenient to all the major sights in the area. Would like... More

We had a wonderful time and loved our cabin. The staff were friendly. We are not coffee drinkers but when we asked for a kettle it was provided promptly. We could have used an extra table in the bathroom other than that it was great. Thanks

Overall it was very lovely and friendly staff. Beautiful cabin and location Could have used some more pillows and some more direction of where to go for points of interest. The location of the resort is great and offers some spectacular views during the daylight hours. Wildlife was also in the vicinity. Nice change.

Everything was provided and was simply wonderful. Good food and good value. The staff were very helpful and friendly with our inquiries. We did not know the area very well. We did not have any complaints and plan to come back in the spring. The reception was also excellent and very welcoming as they offered good directions and advice what... More

We loved the amenities (coffee make especially) and would have liked a bit more attention to our servicing. The classic appeal of the resort is amazing. Well maintained cabins and lovely interior decorations created a classic yet comfortable stay. There was nothing else that we needed as all was provided.

Thank you for a warm dry place with that cozy feeling. No TV was great. The comfort of the room was excellent and thanks to the cleaning staff it was spotless. The area is very well kept and had a very natural feel to it. The location is also very good. It can get a bit busy at times so... More

We stayed in early September and it was wonderful to be able to take our dog with us on a weekend getaway. We had a bungalow suite which was smaller than I anticipated. We had to open the windows and leave them open overnight as there was a musty smell that would not dissipate. It smelled a bit like pet... More

We like the bathtub! Very classic setting and clean. We appreciated the pretty dishes and nice pans. The resort is in a nice location. A bit busy at times but no where near what we thought based on the previous trip advisor we saw. The decor of the cabin was lovely and had great curtains. Thank you for all the... More

We stayed in cabin 24, a standalone cabin. Was exactly what my husband and I were looking for when we were able to have a weekend alone without our kids. Restaurant on site, breakfast was delicious. The cabin was cosy but had a faint musty smell, but that is to be expected for a cabin so we never minded. It... More
