    We had a wonderful stay in a fantastic lakefront room with very friendly hosts, but unfortunately the air conditioning was not enough to conteract the underfloor natural heating. We would suggest the owners upgraded the airconditioning. Other wise a nice place to stay

    Gorgeous setting by the lake wit superb views and the host was lovely. Well set up kitchen and the unit was warm. Spa bath which we enjoyed and hot pool which we didn't get a chance to use. I would certainly go back.
