My husband and I stumbled across this gem in July 2004. It's a great, quiet place for a romantic getaway or for a family. We stayed in the smallest unit, the Butterfly loft. It was cozy and the real timber structure was beautiful to look at. Karen made some delicious goodies for us and left us a folder of places to visit. We stayed for 11 days and didn't want to leave.
I planned a surprise getaway for my husband's birthday in November, 2005. Karen was in on the secret and baked a birthday cake, leaving the Butterfly complete with hats and noisemakers.
It's the little things like these personal touches that makes Shadow Mountain Escape such a relaxing and cozy place to visit. You feel a part of a family.
In the evenings, there is a firepit to make a campfire and roast marshmallows or just to sit with a nice glass of wine. A barbecue is provided, as are all linens and kitchen items.
I'm planning on returning again this year and can't wait for my vacation to begin.
I advise you to check it out!
