Went for a few days felt like weeks... so peaceful and tranquil. Beautiful setting... cabin was very homey and cozy. Will definitely come visit again if I am in that area again. It was unfortunately raining most of the weekend but even in the rain we were very comfortable. Almost want to keep it a secret.

The evenings were especially good, with millions of stars visible and an excellent frog...

The cottage has everything you need. Including a heater and electric blankets. A lovely braai area outside with outdoor furniture and a beautiful spot out on the lake to sit and watch the wildlife. The only thing I didn't like was the pungent smell of mothballs in the extra bedding and a dog that ran out barking every time prevented...
