we had such a positive experience last year that we returned this year, alas, it was likely our last stay, as it appeared that the high standards had dropped! we stayed in lodge 3 over the lake, which had no key to secure our belongings when we were away. it doesn't matter that it's a safe secluded spot, guests should be able to lock up their room, it protects both parties! the microwave was not working, the BBQ was filthy, and the boardwalk needed pressure-washing as it was so slippery that my partner fell and twisted her ankle whilst loading up the car on departure day. no doubt it's the slow season during winter, and we stayed on a voucher, but that should not equate to keyless accommodation and unmaintained boardwalks.
