Banff Gate is rustic and has wonderful chalets to rent. The rooms were clean the
dishes, fridge, stove & cupboards as well were clean. Furniture very run down
so an upgrade would be great. Fireplace brings wonderful ambiance and the view
of the forest in front of us was very peaceful. If however you are put in one of the
chalets in the center of the chalet grouping, your view is limited to the cabins lined in front of you and the cabins in back. Zilch privacy or ambiance of sitting out on a deck in
the evening or early morning for you. I wouldn't go if we couldn't get a chalet at
the front, back or sides(these border the forest) of the grouping. Not everyone cares about this, yet for my family the views of nature is what brings us here.
Also we like to read in the late evening so better lighting would be great!!!
