We stayed on a half price winter special which was great value for something so different although i wouldn't pay the full rate. Lovely setting with the VERY friendly possums that visit nightly at dinner time, outdoor bath, wood fire. The narrow road to get there wasn't so bad but even so make sure you take enough food supplies for your stay as you won't feel like leaving once you're there, also the gourmet platter they offer is very pricey, ($70).Also we couldn't believe that they charge (as per notice near the kitchen sink) that if dishes are left( as per previous arrangement) the charge is $10 every 10 minutes, or if no prior arrangement is made that rate DOUBLES!! (Not bad wages for a dishwasher if you do the sums!) We were amazed by this especially if you were paying the full nightly rate, very bad for business we'd say, also we found the owners slightly on the unfriendly side, not very welcoming. Apart from all that, being very cold at times until we got the fire going and putting up with not so comfortable pillows, a very different and interesting experience.
