Reviews

Amazing lodge! Highly recommended hidden gem

Amanda and Mark were incredible hosts. Went over and above all of our expectations to ensure we had a great stay. We will definitely be visiting again... gutted they’re booked out all summer or we’d have been back this year. Don’t know where to start, everything was perfect. The lake is so remote and picturesque, the lodge has everything you need, the walks nearby are great and the hot tub and paddle boards got a lot of use! I even had a nice morning swim in the lake. Thank you so much guys!! It was a really great birthday get away for my partner and we couldn’t recommend this lodge enough. We’ve told everybody and anybody how great it was and that was everything from the location, the accommodation, the facilities, the privacy and the great hosts! Highly recommended.
