Interaction with guests
A few weeks before your arrival we will send you a complete information pack about our area and information for booking the sauna and/or spa treatments. Adriaan, the owner, or Emily, the property manager will normally receive you in person at check in, so you do not need to worry about keys. If you were to arrive exceptionally very late, we would agree with you on a place where you can collect your key. For seven-night stays, we offer a complimentary mid-week clean of your barn. We also regularly collect bins and are regularly available to replenish your log basket.
