We stayed in the hotel in the beginning op December 2012. Low season and from the second day on we were the only guests. It was great because we had breakfast, luch and dinner all over the property. Dinner in the library sitting in front of the fireplace, breakfast outside because the weather was great and luch in the shade. The rooms with a lakeview are great; you can sit there and read or do fly fishing in the hotels own lake.
The food is very good and we could adjust dishes to what we wanted. Lovely wines.
The village is in a walking distance. We also had two times a massage at the beaty saloon in the village. This is something we can suggest you to do as well. The people at the frontdesk in the hotel can arrange this for you.
