When we arrived at Above the Lake we were greeted warmly by our host Maggie, she showed us our quarters and invited us to wine and nibblies on the back deck in the afternoon with Ivan, Maggie and the other guests staying at the time. Our room was the Lakeview Room which had views of the lake from the sitting room. Our room was spacious and beautifully decorated, we were provided with toiletries, robes, tourist information and a refrigerator including bottled water, tea and coffee, wine glasses and coffee cups. Breakfast was at 8 am each day and it was a real treat to have fresh fruit, cereals, juices, tea and coffee supplied along with a hot breakfast fresh cooked by Maggie. The sunsets over the lake each night were a fabulous bonus to such wonderful surrounds. Our hosts were full of information for the non local and were lovely enough to share themselves their time and their beautiful home (which featured a lovely art collection) with us on a daily basis. Free to come and go as we please but always made to feel welcome on our return at the end of each day. I wouldnt hesitate to recommend this venue to anyone looking for a lovely relaxing time which may or may not be shared with such lovely hosts. We are hoping to return in the future...Thanks Maggie and Ivan for such a memorable occasion, Megan and Glen.
