At Whale-Phin is a log house with wooden floors covered with carpets with double underlays, sound above may still be heard. The broken lock is fixed. The room was painted four monthes ago.

The hosts were very nice, we felt very welcome. Breakfast was great, the views from the house are lovey and they had a cute dog called Zara, there's lots of nice birds in the garden. Rooms are simple but clean with basic facilities.
