St. Arnaud house is situated right in the beech forest, so close to the lake, the closest neighbours being the bellbirds and the tuis. Russell and Margery were the most attentive hosts making us feel extremely welcome and giving us a very special holiday. Our room was exquisite with great attention to detail and marvellous views of the mountains through the skylights. After a long day's walking to return to good conversation, a glass of wine and a wonderful dinner (cooked by Margery) added to our overall enjoyment. Well done and thank you.
