Driving up along the driveway, we knew this was going to be a special place. Darlene met us and from the start we knew she was passionate about her home. We stayed in the Carriage House, which was complete with a kitchen and balcony looking over the front of the property. The rooms were spotlessly clean and comfortable, and with a welcome place of cookies waiting for us. There was no internet or tv, and in fact we welcomed this, as it was a real get away for us and time to be ourselves without the intrusion of outside factors. After talking to both Darlene and Karl, you realise what a labour of love making their home has been. Karl has built this himself and just as importantly has carved out a beautiful trail walk from amongst their 40 acres of mountain and forest. Breakfast was a true feast and set us up for the day. Darlene and Karl joined us for breakfast and we felt we were in another time and place. We loved hearing all their stories and the story of their life together. This is an excellent place to stay and we would highly recommend a stay here.
