We arrived at the lodge after driving to the wrong street which we thought was the correct one. Whops. We were met at the door and welcomed. We were shown to our room and advised dinner would be at a certain time. When dinner was ready we came to the dining room to have it beautifully set up for myself and partner. We sat down to the meal not fully expecting how delightful and plentyful or meal was to become. The Thai fish cakes were delicious, the lamb moist and tender with flavors that pleased the tongue. The strudel was delicious. Along with the music and wines we were in a world of flavor that we had no real understanding of what to expect. The next morning we had breakfast organise and set up for us. We headed downstairs to prepare for our day ahead and Peters lovely dog Charlie followed us down and hung out with us for a short while before heading back up top. We were given a key and we headed out for the day. When dinner was about ready for our second night we were aware of what we were to expect but we were still blown away by our dining experience. Corn and bacon fritters along with a salad like quacamole, followed by stuffed chicken with pasta and veges. Followed by Bananas Coruba.(Can't remember name) was delicious. Peter our host was very welcoming to his home. He offered us more than we had hoped for and we were extraordinarily pleased. Peter you are a wonderful man and you have made the beginning of our new marriage a wonderful start. Thank you very much for your wonderful hospitality and kindness. Your taste in music and humor was a delight and we will try to come again.
