I've travelled extensively and this one really stands out for a peaceful weekend getaway with a great cabin and a view of the dam and surrounded by tall trees and so peaceful.
The owners Julia and Mark were very helpful which made the stay even more relaxing so we had to stay another night!! (Very hard place to leave). The dinner was fantastic and make sure you get a Gourmet picnic hamper and head just up the road to a countless number of picnic areas in the national park. Will be staying again soon..

Why did I go there for a business stay? I dont know, silly I guess, because after arriving I didnt want to go to work!! This place is just awesome, so much so that I'll take my wife back for a weekend. Great warm friendly welcome, warmed again with the already burning log fire place, then I didnt see the owners until I knocked on their door to say goodbye. The picturesque outlook, serenity and accommodation quality are all as descrbed. The 2 friendliest dogs in the world will greet you every time you enter the property - fantastic.
I gave the pool an average score as it was a a little green, but being the middle of winter, who cares, not that I wanted to swum anyway, but what a great pool for the summer.
What about the stars, yes the stars. One night was clear of cloud and the sky was alive with stars, I never knew there was so many!
A great stay, thanks.

Room Tip: Only one cabin on the property, you cant get any better!
