              Secluded serene idyllic mountain view with the birdsong and the waterfall constantly reminding you of its presence. The cottages is well prepared and cater abundantly for the self service guy. Not for the hotel hands on waiter guys. Would go back any time specially when its foggy and cool. The getaway of getaway's. Thanks Mark!!!

              This was truly unforgettable, the cottage was fully equipped and the surroundings was breathtaking. Really appreciated the attention to detail, such as bubble bath at outside bath (GLORIOUS) and emergency lights in every room. The hike along the river around the property was incredible. Will definitely be back for a long stay.
