Simply our best accommodation experience anywhere. The cottage was luxurious, spacious and suitably warm. The kids loved their own private area upstairs. The beds were firm and extremely comfortable. Much thought had been given to the outfitting of the kitchen with attention to detail such as an oven glove and sharp knives. But the point of difference was the wonderful hosts who went above and beyond in many ways - loaning the children sliders for the snow and towels for the local hot pools, volunteering to dry our damp clothes and shoes - nothing was too much trouble. A most positive stay and a motel we would highly recommend.
