Very friendly staff, nice open fire place at the reception area and very nice and spacy rooms. The food was good but not excellent.
One of the highlight is definitely the location overlooking the lake and that the lodge is a perfect place to explore three different lakes without relocating the lodge.
Please be informed that you will hear road noise in the bungalows that are at the top of the hill. The ones that are further down the hill not.
A lodge to recommend.
