Thank you for your review. It was a delight to share our sanctuary with you - a lovely couple that love nature. We get many return visits and referrals, which is always a joy! We especially look forward to seeing you Randy and Diana again.

A warm and friendly welcome by hosts Tim & Debbie Short dispelled any travel fatigue, thereby quickly ensuring a comfortable sense of "belonging." Our cabin was well appointed and, as with the dining room/lounge of the main lodge, facilities anticipated every need. Including diverse library...More
