This lodge is absolutely gorgeous! The garden is beautiful and the view over the lake is splendid. The huge Ceiba Tree is really special. Breakfast is very good and homemade. In the evening the host offers a very formidable menu that he cookes himself... awesome. Thank you for the wonderful stay.

Pleasant, dreamy, excellent vacation! Lis and Dirk care about their hotel and it shows. Imagine how you feel after a long day of fun activities. By request, Dirk cooks the most amazing meal while a sunset unravels in front of you.
