We were the couple staying in the unit when the stairs broke, but this happens, also our TV was broken as well, and was replaced immediately. Breakfast was great and...

The tree lodge was beautiful, peaceful and picturesque. The tree house was clean, neat and well equipped with all the comforts required. All the meals were served in the "outdoor" dinning room and were sumptuous, home cooked delights.

Peaceful and very homely. They provide divine three course meals and "I miss their potato soup" The owner has magic hands for massages. Chalets are cosy, very clean and neat; overlooking a small river. I experienced the most amazing world class service and looking forward to my next visit.

A fantastic outdoors experience whilst being indoors in a thatched cottage surrounded by nature. Only a few cottages are built on the stand and blends uniquely in with the environment. It creates a very cozy family type atmosphere, and still the cottages are apart in distance enough to ensure privacy with a touch of warmth. The Yreehouse River Lodge is...
