This is a fabulous venue. I could only stay one night but wish I had longer. Nice rooms with balconies, good wifi, well appointed. The lodge was character, wonderful grounds with interesting wildlife (especially birdlife), great views, a rural and peaceful ambience, and a delightful swimming pool. Good breakfast.

We booked White House Lodge by default, as presumably the other place was full but it was a very pleasant experience. We arrived in a misty drizzle, warmly received by Susann who immediately made us feel right at home. The next morning we woke to wonderful birdsong and the most spectacular view over White River. We enjoyed a delicious breakfast...
