I can't really explain the beauty of this place. We arrived at night time and there is not that much lighting around the area but you can still admire the beauty of the place. You can hear the river running from the cabins. It was so peaceful and so fresh. If you are thinking to arrive after 9pm, you have to call them and let them know, so they leave you the instructions of how to get to your assigned cabin and how to do check in the next day. We loved the room! Woody ceiling, no AC, no TV, beautiful bathroom, and peaceful colors. THERE IS A HAMMOCK ON THE BALCONY! We enjoyed a glass of wine and from the hammock the first night. There is so much beauty during the morning. If you think that the place is beautiful at night time, wait until the morning, the surrounding green mountains and vegetation are so powerful! You gotta see the mist covering the mountains and the fresh air everywhere. They have a restaurant for breakfast and for dinner. No lunch. The food from the restaurant is good. I loved the dinner the most. The pool area is pretty and peaceful. This place is fascinating and I am glad that I had the opportunity to enjoy it for three days. Everything was VERY CLEAN and people were polite. This is a must do! Here are some pics!
