“Great location, nice place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2012

We spent 4 days in this house. It located just on the lake with nice view on sunrise and sunset. The house itself in old-style, but very nice and warm, comfortable beds, clean rooms, big TV. It was fantastic to swim in the lake and have a hot termal pool inside the house just after. The pool itself rather old, but we still enjoyed it. Also it was great to use 2 kayaks, we could visit the Sulfer point and enjoyed paddling among the bubbles and steams. The only wishes would be to have more modern shower. The owners are very friendly and helpful. And the prise for all what we could use was rather low (150 $ for 4 of us including linens).

Stayed April 2012, traveled with family

You get what u pay for this place is overpriced in comparision to others in the area - yard is unsfe for children and there is a lot of rubbish in the yard unable to hang out clothes because the clotheline is falling down - the "cottage" is filthy dirty inside and the bathroom is a grotty shower bath arrangement in the hallway between 2 bedrooms and the kitchen
