We absolutely loved staying here – the room, the lake and the hosts made for a perfect visit. I had originally booked room 2, and it is gorgeous – it looks newly furnished and has a huge bed, and enormous bath. But when we saw the view from room 6, we upgraded and didn’t want to leave (ever) - it’s so lovely to sit and look at the lake from the porch. Room 6 has the bedroom separate from the main living space, which has the kitchen, a table to seat 4 and a comfy sofa. On your arrival the fridge is stocked with milk, juice, yoghurts, bagels and cream cheese, along with cereals in the cupboard (we stayed 2 nights, so were given enough for 2 breakfasts). As the other guests were off fishing we had the place to ourselves, so it felt like we had our own private beach to lounge on, the deck to relax on and the fire pit to watch the sun going down. The owners are such lovely people, really helpful, but never intrusive. We can’t wait to go back.
